Altuzarra for Target: All the fall trends in one collection!

Yay! I love Target collaborations even when they aren’t particular to my tastes (hello Missoni!) but on Sept. 14 Target stores and online will get what looks like one of the best designer/Target hookups EVER: Altuzarra for Target.
2014 CFDA designer of the year Joseph Altuzarra (he of the luscious double-faced wrapped coats and dresses) has created a feminine and classic collection that hits all the high notes of Fall 2014 trends:

The collection is filled with stuff I would totally wear so long as the quality is worth it.  Don’t get me wrong, I know these are rock bottom prices for cool clothes by one of the hottest designers out there (and I know you get what you pay for)  but there’s no point in my spending only $40 on a dress if it doesn’t even come close to fitting me.  That’s why I like to see the clothes in person instead of buy them online. As far as I can tell (and I am checking) the collection will be coming to most if not all Target stores. The best way to find out where to get it is to go the the Target website and check on your ZIP code.

Speaking of “fit” Altuzarra and Target have come under some fire one  blogger because the 50-piece collection does not come in plus-sizes. Read here for more.

Ciao for now …

  1. I’m almost always disappointed with the quality. Really hope this one is up to scratch cause some of this is gorgeous. Especially love the caftan-esque floor length, the pencil skirts and the embroidered dress.
