Spice World

June 2, 2017

Greetings & salutations! What a whirlwind it has been getting back to Kansas City. I graduated, moved back home to suburbia, I've started a new job I'm so excited about, and managed to get a manicure. I feel like life has been a mile and minute, and I haven't even got to slow down and weigh in on the Victoria Beckham for Target collection Although the busyness doesn't seem to be quitting as I dive into my fourth week at work, and have gone back to wearing black Lacoste polos at the Bucks a few days a week. I'm excited to be back blogging regularly and share this post =')
Almost three months since its dropped and I'm finally weighing in on the Victoria Beckham for Target collection. I  had two major items on my wishlist this top, the Poplin Gathered Waist Top and the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse. There were other pieces I craved like the Orange One Shoulder Dress with Bow and Scallop Trim and the Blue Stripe Poplin Gathered Waist Dress but since the collection has gone 40% off I figured I'll wait and find them on eBay when I'm craving a new dress.

All in all I purchased this Poplin Gathered Waist Top and the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse. I ended up having to return the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse because it had a weird fit which was a shame. My friend Victoria bought me the Bee Print Button Down Top for my birthday, its adorable, and certainly helped compensate for my returned peplum. I'll do an outfit post on it soon!
I think what I loved most about this gathered top is that it didn't look like anything I had in my closet. This piece so unique and architectural. I feel like I need to do one of those "Save Vs. Splurge" graphics on this top because after some investigation this $30 blouse looks just like VB's $265 Victoria Victoria Beckham Empire-waist cotton-poplin top. Quite a few pieces from the Target collection are more affordable options to her popular designer label pieces which is actually pretty amazing.

 Honestly this was one of the best purchases I've ever bought from Target. I am pleased with the structure and the material. I think its versatile and perfect for so many events. I wore this top to an art museum, dinner, a family dessert celebration, and to a restaurant event for work.
My latest obsession are these Miu Miu sunglasses. They may or may not be one of the main pairs Emma Roberts wears as Chanel #1 in Scream Queens, but in black of course. They were a splurge but the glitter detailing on the sides is my favorite part. Plus Miu Miu packaging is impeccable.
As summer begins, I have to admit I'm excited. I have an undergraduate degree under my belt and I'm working for a company I adore. I'm so happy to be back in KC, find me at First Friday's or sitting on a bench by the glass labyrinth at the Nelson. I'll probably be wearing this top. Hope everyone is enjoying their June with big iced caramel machiattos, donuts, and open hearts!

  16. Love the white top! A white top is usually simple, but this one has such cool gathering at the waist. So it's totally a statement top too. I bet it goes with so many things.

  19. How exciting, girl; you're busy, but doing amazing things! Congratulations on the new job, that's awesome girl; I wish you much success and may you excel rapidly in your position! As for your outfit, I love that top! I didn't get anything from the collection because I wouldn't really be able to try on anything to know how it would look on my post baby body. I did notice that there were some cute gingham pieces in the collection, I'm sorry that one didn't work out for you. I hate when something looks so good on the hanger and doesn't work for me when it's such a beautiful design, but not everything is made with every body shape in mind. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

    1. Thanks so much Jalisa you're so sweet. I appreciate it so much. I know some people didn't buy anything from this collection and were totally content so don't sweat it. I think the gingham top would've been cute on you but it had such a weird fit for most people so I'm not sure at the same time. Have a great weekend!

  25. Your sunglasses really do match your face shape so well and the top is so exquisite, I wish I can wear white more often but I know my clumsy self would get makeup or food on it!
