Styling My Thakoon For Target Dress

The Thakoon for Target collection initially launched in mid-winter 2008. Somehow, I didn’t shop it back then. It took one look at the super chic, batik print styles in the newly-released anniversary collection, though, for me to be smitten with it. The only question? Do I get the blue batik print Target dress or the black one?

This printastic collection is by designer Thakoon Panichgul. The prints throughout this anniversary collection offer a sophisticated, polished way to dabble in fall’s tie dye trend.

The shirtdress I’m wearing was a no brainer for me. It has a hidden button front and 3/4 length sleeves. It has an oversized A-line silhouette and comes with a self-tie belt to cinch the waist. And, yes, it has pockets!!

For styling, I simply swapped the belt with my Gucci belt, threw on some pumps, and I was out the door. I’m looking forward to restyling this dress as well. I think it can work well as a lightweight jacket by simply opening the front. Doing so will make this a fabulous fall companion. As a topper, the dress can be worn over pants or over another dress. I’m getting excited just thinking about the possibilities.

Seriously, this dress might be the best $38 I’ve ever spent in Target. For reference, I’m wearing it in a size small.

What to Get in the Victoria Beckham Target Collection

Just when you grow tired of Target designer collaborations, the retail giant announces a collection so good you’d consider standing in line in the wee hours of the morning just to shop it first. The Victoria Beckham Target Collection is hitting stores on April 9th, and it’s good, y’all. It’s really good. The prices are affordable, averaging under $40. The items are size inclusive ranging from XS to 3X. And, most importantly, the styles are bomb! You can view the entire collection at Victoria Beckham x Target. Now, here are my must-haves.

Is the Kenzo x H&M Collaboration For You?

The long-awaited Kenzo x H&M collaboration is hitting select H&M stores and online on November 3. Will you get in formation for the collection? I experienced serious FOMO when I failed to purchase a few pieces from H&M’s last designer collaboration (H&M x Balmain). So, I decided to plan my strategy early for this one. But, I’m simply not a fan of the pieces. Shocking, right? You know your girl loves an over-the-top print, but orange tiger stripes and colorful zebra prints (signatures throughout the collection) don’t do it for me. Here’s a sneak peek of the pieces and where to see more.

P.S. I love seeing all the beautiful black models working the lookbook though, especially in the aftermath of the Marc Jacobs NYFW drama.
