Philip Lim for Target in Photo’s

I mainly took photo’s of a few of the items I saw at my local Target. I’m still hoping to buy are the ‘Boom’ scarf and ‘Boom’ Sweater and maybe the grey women’s sweatpants. I also liked the men’s wool cardigans which I tried on. My Target has a lot of items still left, only saw two of the bags as seen in the below photo.

Summer Lovin’ at Target

Summer is upon us believe it or not it’s pretty much summer here where I am. Target has some amazing items coming in for the season.
I just got back from a trip to Panama in Central America for 5 weeks and that was the last time I nipped into Target to pick up a few clothing items for my trip. Been back almost two weeks and the variety of summer accessories, dresses, shorts, swimming costumes and now the new shoe line from Sam & Libby on (Racked.com) has gotten me excited about summer.

I was looking for a new water bottle and opted for the Bobble bottle, but how funny is ‘The Anti Bottle’ by Vapur. The stock in patterned styles were almost sold out and this one caught my eye. They also had alot of solid colours in Green, Blue etc. Check them out here at Vapur

I upgraded to the iphone5 this week and did pick up a case at Tmobile by Speck which is below. Target has a great selection of iPhone cases as seen below. All were from $24.99 to $34.99. They also stock cases by Xhiliration which range from $12.

My Speck case below:

These clutch bags remind me of the Balenciaga motorcycle style clutch- with the little stud detail and tassle.

Huge shopper bags – amazing! the Tropical print one is stunning! I’m definately going to pick that up at some point, they also had one in black and cream but another pattern.
The rattan bag below is massive and they had three styles. Would be great for the beach or using at the farmer’s market I imagine the one in Union Square, NY!

Now onto a few clothing items I spotted, there were so many pretty skirts & dresses in tribal, floral, stripes, polka dots that you can slip on with a denim vest/ jacket in the day or for evening a leather jacket and your done and out the door!

I shall be snapping away on my next trip to Target. I’d make sure to check the sale racks as I picked up a few items I had seen a month ago which had 50% off.

Warby Parker Review- 5 Day, 5 Pairs at Home Try-on Program


So this week I decided to try out Warby Parker’s brilliant try on at home program.

I’m in the market for some new glasses and had come across them about a year back when I was searching for online prescription frames and lenses.

I wanted something different, not your normal opticians selection which have their own range and then also a designer range which I have brought before. Even trying them in store I wasn’t completely satisfied, you feel rushed and ended up getting glasses I don’t wear now. (I got mine from Boots in the UK).

My glasses I wear now were from a relatively new similar company Eye Fly. And that was a great experience. The thought of ordering glasses online without trying them on can be daunting. All the things go through your head, will my face be too small/ wide, will they be the right shape..and will I look like a complete fool! Choosing glasses is hard, but the new concept of ordering frames and lenses online works.

Well Eyefly does a virtual try on whereby you upload a photo to the site and then proceed to fit the virtual glasses onto your uploaded photo. Pretty cool if you ask me.

I also noted a lot of online retailers having a live fit model either on a runway like ASOS or moving around in the garment on video. This seems like the next step of many in online retailing.


Warby Parker has virtual try on but they also take it a step further with the 5 pairs, 5 days, try on at home program! Much like ordering clothes online, you can check your fit.

With a few clicks of a mouse and entering in my info, they were winging their way to me. And it’s all FREE!!! Free shipping and free returns.

My box came a few days ago via UPS so I am on ‘day three‘ now and what I will say is I am completely satisfied and amazed at how well it all works. I tried them all on.. showed my family/friends and took some photo’s to give them a test run.

I can’t wait to order my frames!! Pshhh I already chose them the first day from the 5 and you can do it again if you can’t decide from the first five.

I was so excited receiving the box and it was all amazingly packaged. Comes in a returnable UPS box with return sticker (free shipping) for when your 5 days are up and then inside a black hard glasses box to 5 pairs to keep them all in top condition.

My selection of 5 to try-

Roosevelt Bondi Blue 

Preston Sandalwood Matte 

Roosevelt Revolver Black Matte 

Tenley Burgundy Fade 

Wiloughby Tennessee Whiskey 

And here is me with all pairs on to compare:

Overall I was really impressed with the home try on and in the first 5 chose the ones I will go on to order with my prescription. So I’ll be popping the samples back in the post and ordering this week I should think.  Another great thing about Warby is they donate a pair of glasses for every pair purchased. Not only are you doing yourself a favor, you’re helping someone in need.

And the biggest bonus of all is the price, the all retail at $95!!  They do men’s and women’s frames and are pretty much unisex. 

As I own a black framed pair from Eyefly which have a tortishell arm and black frame , my choice is based on wanting something to change up my look every other day. Current frames see below-

I am going to go with a pop of colour and the Roosevelt Bondi Blue as I like the width of the frame aswell as the colour. I like the name too!

It’s nice to add something extra to your outfit, even with your eyewear.. Pop’s of colour are in for spring 2012 too if that matters to you. I’m ready to get out of these winter colors now warmer weather is here.

My inspiration for choosing the Roosevelt Bondi Blue!
