Get Out Grandma's Costume Jewelry - Shake Up Your Accessories Drawer - Fall Accessories Report 2010 - Fashion - InStyle

My mother is my witness I've been looking at how to make a diy sweater guard for about 6 months.  I didn't like the regular old clips in the jewelry supply store and section of Jo'Ann's so I decided to move past the idea.  True fashion though... normally when I crave something pretty soon it starts to show up.  (Remember the dozens of poncho's I crocheted, friends, the year before stores started selling them?  It must be a gift.  Fashion Prophesy!)

Anyway, low and behold here was what was in the Instyle Magazine.  I hadn't even thought to use old clip earrings (mom, I'm on my way to your jewelry box.)

Mulberry for Target Giveaway!
on 11.02.2010
Labels: giveaway
If you're anything like me, you marked your calendars the minute Target announced that it was going to have a Mulberry x Target collaboration! 

I've always been a huge fan of the Target designer collabs, just wish they were available in my size! This collection of handbags, however, fits everyone and is actually pretty cute for the reasonable price point. While these pieces are obviously no replacement for the real deal, they are a cute and playful stand-in. Needless to say, I was at Target the day of the launch. I loved the pebbled large tote and snagged the last two in store. ;) (You can see how I wore mine here!)

While the leopard print left a bit to be desired, I loved the quality of the black pebbled faux leather! The large tote is very well constructed and extremely roomy. It has two exterior pockets and surprisingly nice gold-tone hardware.

I love the exterior pockets, which have faux buckles and magnetic snap closures.

This is bag is sooo roomy! I use it for work and can fit my laptop in it! It also has an interior zip pocket and a cell phone pocket! 

To top it off, it has Mulberry's signature turnlock closure, and a somewhat Juicy Couture inspired heart charm...which is easily removed if it isn't your style!
