Spring

The first day of Spring brought me what I thought was allergies.

It became much worst, it was actually a flu. Been bed bound and living in darkness and wasting many gorgeous days now.

But alas I cannot neglect this blog. I am dedicated to my craft.

Good thing I have the gift of foresight and took these photos much in advance.

I actually ended up with a lot of pieces from the Prabal for Target love collection. What can I say, my excitement for this was seriously not contained.

My scouring paid off though. When I went to my second Target to see what else they may have in store for me, I scored this shirt for $9.00!

One of my favourite pieces from this collection are these amazing shoes.

They would go amazing with any summer or spring outfit. Except, I have yet to learn how to wear none platform shoes.

Oh health, why are you always taken for granted. I am going back to bed now and leave you with the image of me when I am healthy. Have a great day.

Prabal for Target DIY Alterations

Sick of reading about the whole Prabal for Target thing on my blog? Well get used to it, there is more to come.

I got this dress because I fell in love with the print! For that particular print, it was only available in the shift dress by the time I got online.

It was too big, even though some forums have expressed that this collection fits small, but for some pieces, it fits TTS or on the larger side. This dress definitely fits in that category. I usually wear a small, but this small is medium on me. Or maybe I shrunk *tee hee*.

Anyway, I can't really wear this as is. Even though, I have styled it out into an outfit that received many likes on Instagram.

It could be because I am itching to use my sewing machine.

I have foreseen this dress turning into a crop top and a skirt. So on my day off, I got to work and got to cutting.

First, I sort of measured out where I wanted to cut with another skirt.

Then I proceeded to sever the dress into to two.

Soon, I had two pieces instead of one.

Now it's just a matter to refining.

For some reason, I am really digging cropped things lately. On top of that, a hi-lo crop top. So I made a hyperbolic cut in the front.

The result looks like thus.

But, I cut a little too high and now that top threatens to flash the under garment. Only one way to remedy this, drop the neck line to reprieve some length.

The end result is this, something more relaxed and beachy looking.

Now the bottom, this is where more heavy lifting is required.

Since the bottom portion is pretty large to sit naturally on my hips, I have to think of a way to remedy that.

The easiest thing to do is to make a draw string of sorts. I have yet to venture into "taking things in" territory.

So my first step is to fold the top down to make the encasement for the drawstring.

You can pretty much use any string for the drawstring string, but I decided to use the same material and cut off a thin strip from the skirt portion.

Now, just sew it up with the sewing machine.

And then pull the string through.

Now I have a super cute tennis like skirt.

I think I am much happier with how the skirt turned out than how the top did.

But now I do have two pieces of items with this crazy awesome print.

Did I make a huge mistake?

Well, good thing the dress is still in stores. Plus, this amazing top as well.

Favourtie Pieces from Prabal Gurung for Target

Happy Chinese New year.

It is customary to wear red and gold colours and new clothes for the first day of the New Year.

There are also a sleuth of things you should and should not do as well. But the fashion rule is my favourite.

It means I can have an excuse to wear something new. Well, not like I really needed one anyway.

The blazer was a recent acquisition from the Aritzia Snooze you Lose sale. Which counts as my new thing, paired with the red pants, I am all set.

Prabal Gurung for Target

It's Collaboration Time again!

This one is brought to you by Target and Prabal Gurung.

Dropping around Valentine's Day, this collection is aptly named "Love".

Available in stores February 10th, 2013. This feminine collection provides you the one stop shop to update and complete your spring wardrobe. A whopping 41 pieces ranging from tops to dress to accessories and shoes it's my most anticipated thing for this Spring thus far.

I first noticed this Nepalese American designer when he joined forces with other designers for the Neiman Marcus for Target Collection.

I am glad I was able to snatch up this fabulous cape.

Now I am ecstatic that he is doing his own collection.

Love will be all about embracing femininity and showcasing beauty in each woman.

The prints are centered around bright fresh colours enhanced by bold floral prints. However, there are also pieces that take the same feel but steps it up to a more formal level by removing colour altogether.

Together with shoes and jewelry, you can be polished from head to toe for any occasion.

Here is the entire look book.
