What I Wore: an outfit I wore to the agency on Friday.

Sweater: Target

Snapshot from my agency meeting this morning! I’m working for Lindsey + Asp this semester in Norman, and I’m thrilled to lead the video team.

In more important news, the nail polish I’m wearing is Essie’s Tart Deco.

Review: Jason Wu for Target


Today, I made a special trip to Target to check our their new Jason Wu line before all the Norman vultures got it. Here is my take on the new pieces!

Wu’s collection was highly vintage inspired; pieces like this blue dotted blouse were available in several colors. This is a trend that lots of other mid-range stores (read: Old Navy, Forever 21) are pursuing, but Wu’s pieces are likely of higher quality and offer more detail, such as the tie and trim on the sleeves.

Stripes play a major role in Wu’s collection, but they are often used in creative ways, such as the trim on this poplin dress. His stripes are also usually not even or the same size, adding interest to the pieces.

Wu’s pieces also feature pairings of different fabrics; for example, this tank top has a sheer panel at the top. Blue is heavily featured (as you can see in this post) with pops of neon red and yellow and neutrals like cream and white.

Overall, I’d say that most of Wu’s collection is worth buying. While some items (a cotton shirt with a cat on it for $19.99) are overpriced, the detail is usually worth the price. Quality isn’t top notch, but for a store where I can buy silk dresses and a loaf of bread, I’ll take it.

All items can be found at Target stores or on the Target website. Prices range from $19.99-$59.99.

The Art of Being a Bargain Hunter


Dear readers, I have a problem.

Not an earth-shattering problem, but a significant one nonetheless.

I spent $50 at Target in the past four days.

Hi, my name is Sydney, and I’m a Sale-oholic.

Seriously, y’all, I see those red tags and “CLEARANCE” signs and I’m a goner! I usually subscribe to a personal policy of “If you don’t love it, don’t buy it”, but it’s so easy to love a three dollar sweater or an eight dollar bracelet. Most of the time, the things I buy I really do love, and wear often (for about 3 weeks until I lose them in the black hole of my closet/drawers/laundry/car). But it’s the things I regret buying that usually sit in the front of my closet, begging to be worn and making me feel ashamed.

How do you resist buying something that is on sale and decent looking?

Please give me your pro tips, because right now I’m looking at a pair of three dollar capris that I’ve never worn and that I think are horrendously ugly.

And, in future, I would like to not look at such things.
