20s Flapper Meets French Military

Don't you just love polaroids? It gives each picture its own little frame and caption area! Just a little party dress from Forever 21, all the fringe makes it feel very 20s and flapper-ish. Worn here with the jacket dubbed "Napoleon" that I bought when I was traveling Japan.






Note to self, really liking this color combo of navy and gold.

napoleon jacket: sly, bought in Japan
fringe dress: forever 21
rings: random

On another note, sooooo Zac Posen for Target, huh? Color scheme hints at his Pre-Fall 2010 Collection. Out April 25th. Does anyone else feel like affordable designer collabs never really meet expectations? The material quality is poor, the fit is horrendous, and the designs are very mainstream, which makes sense as the target crowd isn't very discerning fashion-wise I suppose. Oh I just realized that was a pun. Anyways, I'll probably go on buying Target collaborations but it's just because I'm really easily distracted by clothes. Photos from Fashionista.com and Style.com.


The dress looks like it could work, hopefully the jacket doesn't feel like plastic!


Really cute, but would you buy such a fancy party dress made from cheap material?


Actually I really like the words written in lipstick on this loose tank.


Hoping this oversized bow (left) looks more exciting like this (right) from Zac Posen Resort 2010.

  21. Great jacket!

    The Target collections are always disappointing for me. They usually look (decently) cute in photos, but the prices do not make up for the crappy quality in many cases. Sure, I'd love to be able to own something from Zac Posen, but not if it looks like crap.
