anna sui for target

i'm way excited for this.
anna sui (one of my favorite designers) + gossip girl (one of my favorite television shows) + target (one of my favorite places in the world. hehe. just kidding...kinda) = AWESOME!

i haven't been this excited about one of target's "go! international" designers since...erin fetherston. she did all those cute bunny prints and satin jumpers. and i think that was 2 years ago or something.

some of the anna sui designs are a little...weird (or at least, not my style, to put it nicely), but there are a few outfits that i like in particular. and each outfit was inspired by one of four female gossip girl characters: blair, serena, jenny, and vanessa (although, some of the inspirations don't exactly come through very well in the designs, i think). the blair ones are my favorite (naturally).

it launches september 13th
(oh god. i have to save money if i want to buy all those dresses).

edit: if you want to see the whole collection, click here! it even lists the characters each outfit was inspired by. oh, and here are the characters for the images above (starting at the top, left to right: 1. blair, 2. serena, 3. serena, 4. vanessa, 5. jenny, 6. jenny, 7. blair). surprising, right? i mean, i don't think some of the stuff even "matches" the characters' styles, but oh well.

Re:Okay so here's my loonnggg reply. heeee

Audrey Hepburn yes yes,she's a HUGE LOVE! Glad you liked the Q&A. I was thinking of doing vlog on it,but didn't in the end:( heeeee I'm shy! Hahaha

Ohhh,most of my friends do have blogs but it's not fashion focused but more on their personal life. So They don't really read mine.

Yup,berets are to be worn at any time or weather ! People do stare at me when I wear them out,but who cares ! I like them ad LOVE etsy too <3

You should really go thrifting soon,it's really money saving,fun and you'll nevr know what you'll find !
I actually a few vintage dresses that I've not shown yet,nly those 2 are my most expensive ones. heeee

YESSS, those zoe boots ! I want them badly too. But it would take up half of my pay gone ! hmmmm.

Ohhhh,i'm saving up too. Really want to go and visit !
Ohhhh,and which airport do I arrive at when I go ? Checking up on the rates<3

September 14th!
I am running out of shows to watch.
I even attempted Tru Blood :P

I try not to watch the promos for the new GG season though...I always figure out the plot and get mad at myself.
I'd much rather be suprised :)

On the hunt for cheaper shoes,thats a must ! Need to stock up on my shoes collection.

omg ANNA SUI! *gets excited* lol. I LOVE her! Her artworks are amazing, although I never really pay for one of them, I can only adore them, lol. I always forget to save, tsk.

Sher said...

Oh wow, my fave would have to be the first dress with the bow and the last blue one, LOVELY!

Polished Sense said...

So loving the 3rd look! Can't wait till it launches at Target! :D


Little Clementine said...

I am so, so, so excited for Anna Sui's collection for Target. My favorite look is the white lace dress!

OMG I want them. The dresses are so pretty!

Eri said...

I love the white dress and the stripey one. Very pretty indeed.

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you soon.

Melissa said...

I love Target and had no idea about this. Thanks for the info!

Joy De Vivre Design said...

I love her clothing, so I can't wait to see the Target version.

Great blog!

Amanda K said...

Yay I can't wait!!

Leigh said...

I am excited for the bottom blue dress!! LOVE and will be getting now :)

writemeg said...

Yay! How funny is it that the second I glanced at the very first dress, I thought, "That looks like something Blair would wear!" It's the little bow in front :) I'm completely obsessed with "Gossip Girl"... my sister and I watched about four episodes nightly, LOL. I got season one on DVD when I was out sick for a week in an effort to have something to watch... and now we're halfway through season two on DVD, just in time to start season three next week! Well, I'll have to DVR the first few episodes until we catch up :)

All the outfits are so cute -- but I like Blair's the best, too!

I can't WAIT to see this next season of Gossip Girl...and I am a Blair fan all the way.
Serena just annoys me:P
Not that she isn't all kinds of fabulous though.

And I L-O-V-E Anna Sui.
This is going to sell out quickly.
We should perhaps camp outside our local Targets when it debut's:)
