Today I was helping a friend identify vintage hats. While doing so I looked up photos of classic movie stars in tilt hats. I couldn’t keep these to myself so I’m sharing them with you. I really need to start watching more classic films. The fashion alone is riveting.

Note: I did not keep track of where I sourced these photos from as I didn’t plan this post. If you recognize a photo from your blog and need me to source you (or remove it), please let me know.

The romantic drama movie trailer styled commercial is really growing on me.

Okay I was not at all familiar with Prabal Gurung until I started hearing about his Target collection. It’s just so fun and sweet though that I had to check it out. The theme of the collection is “Love”. So it made sense for them to release it yesterday since Valentine’s Day is coming up this week. The lovely use of florals in the collection scream Spring to me. However I don’t have any season specific print rules or anything. Okay, you are probably aware that I actually don’t adhere to any fashion rules.

After surveying the entire collection on Target.com I had to head to my local Target today even though according to the site’s online availability our store wouldn’t have much for sale. One tank top that I was interested was available so I went mainly for that. I was incredibly jazzed to find a great selection of items when I arrived.

I took my camera to take decent photos but then I had an issue with too much zoom while hastily trying to turn off the sound functions while in the dressing room. So, yay, another post with shaky camera phone photos! Oh well, at least you can see how the clothes hang on someone who isn’t a model.

For reference I am a size 10-12 or a large in most clothing and a C cup bra. Yes I know you can see my houndstooth print bra, I like the print and do not give a damn.

Long Sleeve Tee in Floral Crush Print
pb fl sw side
Yes, I absolutely love this Long Sleeve Tee in Floral Crush Print. It was the only item that I was able to purchase today. I simply had to have it. Not only is the print darling but it’s super comfy. It’s made of 60% cotton and 40% modal. I know that I will wear it often. Something this cute for $19.99 with a huge re-wear factor was a must.

This Pebble Racerback Tank Top ($19.99) spoke to me when I saw it online due to the color (Calypso Coral). I was not digging it on me once it was on. It is 100% rayon and 100% hot even while wearing it for a minute or two.

Both of the above tops fit larger than average. I tried them on in a large but they fit more like an XL. Judging by these and another top that I saw from the collection I would say that you could size down in most of these tops if you want a closer fit. My guess was that they are supposed to fit loose, that that’s how they are supposed to hang. However judging by the model photos maybe I’m wrong. However I did buy the floral top in a large because I am getting old (okay, not really, but sort of) and I’m leaning towards comfort lately. If the tank were made of another fabric and I found it flattering to my boobs then I would have sized down on that.

The black floral dress in Meet the Parents Print ($44.99) is amazing. I didn’t get it today because I’m not Miss Moneybags so I have to watch how I spend money when I do have it. In this case I most likely wouldn’t wear this that often. It’s so flattering though. It also seemed very well made. The zipper that ran up the back was impressive and the material really highlights my shape. It is made up of 98% cotton. I tried on the size 12. I would say that it’s true to size.

The Short Sleeve Dress in First Date Print ($39.99) was not for me. I also tried this on in a 12. It’s 100% polyester and doesn’t seem to have any give. I couldn’t get the back all of the way up. It fit fine otherwise. Sometimes my boobs aren’t fashion friendly.

I’m also totally into the below pieces from this collection.

Yes, I’m crazy over the Floral Crush Print. The peplum top is cotton and spandex. My guess from trying on other pieces in the collection is that it’s most likely also flattering and true to size.

The Dress with Full Skirt in Floral Crush Print is cotton and spandex. It seems to be the same cut as the black and white dress above. If so I definitely think that it’s awesome.

The Sweatshirt in First Date Print is a super fun print. It’s cotton and polyester. My guess is that it’s also going to run a bit large.

I saw the Nolita Print pumps in person. They are way more striking right in front of you. Definitely my favorite shoe from the collection, by far.

The Sleeveless Tee in First Date print is cotton and model with a mesh neckline. I don’t really love this cut of top on me personally but I bet this top is soft and more comfortable than it looks.

If you enjoy sweet, feminine designs this collection is probably for you!

Beautilation Picks

Beautilation Picks by missemmamm on Polyvore

Since I am a fan of this talented Etsy seller I had to let all of you know that she is currently running a huge sale on a variety of styles until December 24, 2012. Here are my top picks from her store (not all are on sale, but are definitely affordable). Yes, I’m all over that Jessica Rabbit print! Plus that cut tank top is currently only $12 (you can also choose from other prints in her shop to have put on it). The other pieces are odes to Jawbreaker, Heathers, the Disney Princesses (dominatrix style) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

This post is for the LAMB Acting School 101: Sigourney Weaver.

In 2009 Parade Magazine featured the stunning Sigourney Weaver on the cover to promote the film Avatar. I was thrilled by the photos because they were so gorgeous. It’s rare to see so much effort and creativity into styling a woman who isn’t super young. Yes, that was 3 years ago and yet I still thought if it straightaway when I thought of Weaver. So I’ve made a collage of the photos below. Please enjoy.

The interview can be found here and the slideshow of photos is here.
