On March 13th I ordered four of Target's Go International Re-Release dresses. Sadly only the Proenza Schouler dress looked really good.  The two Thakoon dresses were okay, but the thin strapped one was a bit weird on top. I did really like the black and white Thakoon, but I'm not sure if I want to keep it.  The Tracy Feith dress was a little too tight so I couldn't zip it all the way, but it looked good from the front, ha ha. My sister and I ended up going to Target on Saturday and they had the Tracy Feith dress in the next size and it fit both of we might keep it and share it.

I've put the ones I wasn't sure about on eBay and if they don't sell I'll decide what to do with them.  The auction links are under the images. If you want to make an offer off ebay you can email me and I can remove the listing ;) They end on Tuesday so I should be able to ship them before I go on vacation (Depending on how fast you pay, I ship the same or next day)

And here is how I look in the dresses, these are just quick shots I had my sister take when we were trying them on (she got a Zac Posen one, but it didn't fit).  The designer is under the image.

I also did a bit more shopping on Saturday, I got bright pieces (which my wardrobe is sorely lacking...sadly 2 will never be seen by eyes other than mine). I got 2 t-shirt bras at Victoria's Secret for $25 (I had a coupon, WOO!)  I also got some coral Steve Madden wedges for $19.99.  But I'm being bad this month...I bet I go over budget even though there's only 1 week left that will count toward my monthly spending.  I haven't added the Target dresses to the sidebar yet, I'm waiting until they sell so I can figure out how much they really cost me.
(The money I spend in Florida doesn't count because I budgeted my vacation spending for Florida and London at the beginning of the year with the rest of my yearly budget)
I wasn't going to post any more Fall 2011 collections since we're getting closer to spring but this collection was SO gorgeous I couldn't resist! A Valentino show never disappoints, this collection has such great separates and of course flowy, feminine dresses.  I also love the fact that some blush colors were used, this makes this collection wearable almost all year round (in my opinion at least). Click the photos to see them full size.

While I was flipping through my March issue of ELLE magazine I saw an AWESOME ad that made me squeal with excitement.  Listen to this:
"Five years of designer fashion that led to an obsession. Together one time, the best dresses return at prices divine. Starting at $24.99. Only at Target - March 13"
Yes, you heard right, Target will be bringing back a bunch of dresses from their GO International lines.  So expect pieces from Tucker, Temperley London, Paul & Joe, Rodarte, Luella Bartley, Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Thakoon,  Erin Fetherston etc.

I did some research and there will be 34 dresses released from the 17 designers that did collections for Target that will be out from March 13th to April 10th.  I know I am going to have to splurge and get one or 2 IF the store has the ones  want, especially since none are more expensive than $44.99 (which is still a lot, but :p ).  Here are some of the dresses, they can all be seen here. My absolute favorites are the bigger ones. Click them to enlarge (there will also be a title under the image stating the designer.

I've been waiting so long to post this, but I wanted to wait until it was closer so we wouldn't forget about it, but how could you ;)
Pre-Fall 2011 collections are starting to appear online and so far my favorites are Chanel, Burberry Prorsum and Jason Wu! Some other Pre-Fall collections I enjoy so far are Temperly London, Pringle of Scotland, Elie Tahari, and Donna Karan. Here are SOME of my favorite looks from my three favorites (click to see them larger):

Chanel - Chanel's collection looks expensive and to put it in a weird way: royal, but it is still very wearable. I could see myself wearing these looks every day (minus the crazy jewels).
Burberry Prorsum - Burberry Prorsum made the list, as usual for one of my favorites, I just LOVE Christopher Bailey, he is amazing, as is the collection, I also love the styling of the photos, the models look so cool. It was too hard to only pick 9, so I did 12, ha ha.

Jason Wu - Jason's collection is very pretty and structural and wearable as well, I would love to own any of these outfits!  The color palette is girly, but with some punch when red is thrown in.
