"There is no remedy for love but to love more."-Henry David Thoreau
I majorly heart February. I do not even try to hide my utter and unabashed love for this month as can be seen here and here.To honor the great month, PR is sharing 9 things that we are loving this month over the course of the 29 (leap year woo hoo!) lovely days of February. Starting with one and two today.
1. Jason Wu for Target
You pretty much have to live under an unfashionable rock if you did not hear about the much beloved designer Jason Wu's collection at Target being available this Sunday. It was not just Super Bowl Sunday, folks, it was Super Wu day. While the collection is simply darling (inspired by French New Wave films: think clean lines with navy, red and pops of mustard) the reality of getting your hands on some of these cute pieces was just as tough as everyone thought it would be. Here's how it went down ladies. I had my eye on the mustard peplum top and poplin dress in navy (both pictured above), cap sleeve pleated blouse in cream,and pleated shift dress in blush stripes. Ambitious, right? Before Madonna started lip syncing to Vogue at half time, I was able to report 50 percent victory. Two items scored. Well kind of. I managed to nab the cap sleeve blouse online (at 3am Sunday morning after snoozing the alarm I had originally set for midnight several times) and the peplum top in store (in an XL though (that's where the kind of victory comes in) so hoping Mom can hook a girl up with some alterations) The dresses were pretty much impossible. A girl I chatted with at my local Target said she had been to four stores that all showed the navy dress in stock but she had yet to see one. On a bright note, unlike some disappointing designer Target collections in the past, Mr. Wu does not let a fashionsita down. Everything I did see in person at the store was really lovely and made of good quality material, so I hope you got a chance to snag a piece or two. Did you try to get your hands on anything from the collection? And if so, what is your favorite?
With Valentine's Day merely days away, hearts for everyone. Make your paperwork more loving with these adorable heart paperclips. Measure out some love in these measuring cups. Send your Facebook friends some snail mail that's straight from the less than three and if you're feeling really ambitious, try a heart in your honey's morning latte. (Every Feb, I've always wondered how the talented baristas at my favorite coffee shops do this...mystery solved...although I'm sure if I tried, it would just be a blobby less than three)
