Tara Jarmon to follow Luella at Target!

Tara Jarmon RunwayLuella Bartley’s limited edition run at Target is winding down to a close (sale ends on 3/11), but Target’s ready to roll with their next "Go International" designer: Canadian designer Tara Jarmon!

Tara Jarmon is known for "Smart and comfortable pieces, colored and sexy but never provocative, embellished with details such as embroidery, a bow, a flower; sober cuts, in sweet and silky materials : muslin, cotton, satin, velvet."   Look for a sharp departure from Luella’s youthful (and clearly British) line.

Tara Jarmon apparel and accessories will hit Target in May.

Thanks to style scout "T" for her thoughtful email (and The Budget Fashionista) for the scoop!

Ready Made Outfit: Your Friend’s Big Birthday Bash

Showing up to a birthday party in a tuxedo would be too over-the-top unless you’re going to Cipriani to celebrate Diddy’s 36th.  If you happen to be a girl who likes the traditional tuxedo concept (black and white from head to toe), but not enough to rent an actual one, try this girly rendition below. You’ll maintain the classy color scheme of a tux while leaving behind some of its masculinity. 

Deluxe Tux = White Tank + Chunky Chain Link Necklace + Black Skinny Pants + Leopard Pumps.


Ribbed Tank

 Ribbed Tank | $14.50 at Gap


Guess chain link necklace 

 Bronze/Gold Chain Link Necklace | $19.99 at Guess

Polo black skinny pants 

Sateen Blake Jean | $39.99 at Ralph Lauren Polo

Leopard pumps

Stiletto Heel Pumps in Leopard | $59.99 at Sexy Shoes
