My Favorite Pieces from Altuzarra for Target

1

Good Morning Breezles, 

The much anticipated Altuzarra for Target collection hits stores September 14th.  When other designers have worked with Target in the past the majority of the pieces sell out the day they are available to the public and I think the Altuzarra collection will be no different.  Scroll down to see my five favorite looks from the collection and go to Altuzarra for Target to view all of the pieces.

 Who has been your favorite designer at Target and what look from the Altuzarra for Target collection are you looking forward to showing off this fall?

Crazy for Quilting

CovetingSeptember

Good Morning Breezles,

I have been shopping for the cold months ahead and have found so many fun pieces I can’t wait to buy.  While shopping I noticed a lot of quilted pieces which reminded me of my grandmother’s quilts she used to make.  They are one of my favorite things to get out of storage for the colder months because they remind me of my grandmother and they are the best things for staying cozy and warm.

Here is a little quilted outfit inspiration.

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

Good Morning Breezles,

Summer is almost over which means nights are getting a little chillier. I still have a few weddings to attend and one is outdoors in the mountains, brrrrrr. I know it’s going to be a little brisk and I won’t be happy in the shorter dresses I wore at the beginning of the summer, so a maxi dress or a long sleeved jumpsuit would be a perfect thing to wear to the autumn weddings ahead.

Scroll down to see some of my favorite pieces for a fall wedding and please tell what you like to wear to special events when it is a little chillier outside?

Julie Miles Jewelry

Greetings Breezles,

I had the pleasure of attending a trunk show for Julie Miles. I met Julie during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and fell in love with her jewelry as well as Julie herself. She uses fresh water pearls and Swarovski crystals in almost every one of her designs, but has also started to add various precious stones

JMJ

Julie created the Julie Miles label in 2001 and it has kept growing ever since. The label began when Julie was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The odds were against her, but she didn’t give up. While undergoing chemotherapy treatments she found making jewelry to be therapeutic and started Julie Miles designs. Julie says, “The Julie Miles Label is a brand with a passion for bending the rules of fashion and style. At it’s core is the premise of women blazing their own trails, and dressing in a spirit that defies convention that scoffs at the robotic styles offered by institutional brands.”

She survived cancer and enjoys traveling the world to showcase her new jewelry designs. When I met Julie I instantly had a connection with her. I own one of her necklaces and whenever I wear it I can feel the love and positive energy Julie put into making it. I now consider Julie a friend and I find her to be a true inspiration to people everywhere.
