Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

The lovely Cindy asked me to work together on a post she calls "Sole Mates"
What is "Sole Mates" you ask?
Someone sends her a pair of shoes and she makes an outfit to go with them.
And speaking of soles, she has a darling etsy shop where she sells shoe bags, and laundry bags be sure you check it out!

We decided to have a little fun and do a Movie/Music Sole Mates, for this set we selected "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
Wasn't that a great 80's movie and song?
If you don't remember it features SJP, Helen Hunt and Shannon Daugherty.
If you haven't seen it put it in your Netflix cue.
So anyway Cindy sent me a few cute shoes and I choose this pair.
I hope you think this outfit is TOTALLY AWESOME!

Target High End Fashion


In case you haven't heard; Target features High End designers who design lines especially for Target. I LOVE it, they have been doing this for years. I continue to get excited and run to my nearest store every time they add a new designer line!
Examples of some designer lines they always carry:
Rachel Ashwell
Liz Lange
Smith and Hawken

They also have a revolving door of home and fashion designers they feature for a few weeks/months.
The items in today's collage are all designers that are currently available at Target stores. You can dress head to toe "designer", without spending high fashion dollars.

I own this bag in blue and get lots of compliments, it really looks like a designer bag
