Took a trip to Target yesterday. Faux fur was EVERYWHERE! I would have loved to buy some but my observations of faux fur in rain haven't been positive. Considering the climate where I live, not a good plan. :(

I did however get an Anna Sui for Target shirt (I'll have to post it sometime) but check out this dress:

The edge of the neckline look kind of like teeth in person [kind of creepy, but too cool to be creepy]. I liked it, mother was not convinced. But she said perhaps if it becomes really cheap. (Likely considering it isn't exactly what the average Target customer is looking for...)

But even more exciting news: RODARTE FOR TARGET!
Designing sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy will be bringing their ethereal sensibility to a wider world when Target introduces Rodarte in December as part of its Go International series of limited collections.
The 55-piece Rodarte line for Go International will launch at most Target stores nationwide and on target.com on Dec. 20, and will be available through Feb. 6. While it may be hard to imagine translating Rodarte’s hand-wrought designs for the mass market, Target claims to have stayed true to the spirit of the luxury-priced label.

“What you’ll notice is an amazing eye for detail,” said Joshua Thomas, a Target spokesman. “It’s very feminine, yet very modern. The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur. The key with Rodarte is layering.”

Prices for Target’s Go International Rodarte collection will range from $9.99 for knee-highs to $79.99 for a leopard print jacket.

Rodarte, which is known for evening clothes, designed “a variety of great holiday dresses,” Thomas said. “There are stand-alone pieces and pieces that can be worn together to create an ensemble by layering different patterns, textures and prints.”
