Hello-Hello & Happy Day!
Today we start with a sneak peek at the next limited edition shoe collection for Target. These are from the Miss Trish of Capri for Target line, due in stores and online April 5. Below, the Starfish Sandals.
The collection will be available until mid-June; price points are going to be about $29.99.
And don’t forget the Felix Rey handbag line due at the Boutique on March 29! Below, a photo from the designing duo’s website; we do not expect to see this bag at Target.
This next photo is hypothetically a bag from the upcoming Target collaboration.
And thanks to the always-on-top-of-things Nitrolicious, here are a few more bags from the Felix Rey line:
Now you know, there is absolutely no way TP can breeze through the Tar-szay site without adding at least a Pretty in Pink to the mix. Or an Adventure in Argyle. Or both. And these little beauties seem to land somewhere in there!
We offer the Toddler Girls’ Circo® Jenna Plaid canvas shoes for your consideration.
Ladies, do we not also need these in big, grown-up girl sizes?
Women’s Wear Daily reports that Coach is debuting a new line, “Poppy,” they hope will appeal to a wider demo. We are speculating this shall either be a smash hit or utter disaster for the upscale leather goods firm.
Below we share a bag from the collection. The. Red. Sequin. Handbag.
The poppy flower has been associated with Coach for some time, featured on different items. The story describes the collection:
“… from a tote covered in a profusion of red sequins to “Gossip Girl”-worthy tiaras to pochettes covered in strands of gold beads.”
Here are a few of the aforementioned tiaras, although we wonder if they could possibly be headbands? Which would actually be more in keeping with Gossip Girl.
Coach president Reed Krakoff is quoted throughout the story:
““It’s going to excite the existing Coach customer, as well as draw in a lot of age groups. It’s been a fun exploration of who the Coach woman can be.”
Excited? In a manner of speaking. You could say that.
And just as some lovely designs sans logos were popping up on our accessories radar, like the ever-so-wonderful Bleecker Clutch:
Speaking of Gossip Girl and accessories, we were intrigued by this look on Leighton Meester. She and co-star Chace Crawford are seen working on the show in New York Monday.
Also spotted on the set Monday, Taylor Momsen, in a look not quite as tailored as Ms. Leighton’s.
Fans of the hit show will be pleased to know the CW Network announced yesterday it has renewed G2 for another season.
Yesterday we read a sad SOTT (Sign of the Times) over at Mom x 2 about retailer Conrad Egan closing in Florida. Then last night TQM (the Queen Mother) called, inquiring about us being up to speed on the looming closure of Walton-Pierce.
As described in the Detroit News:
“We know what this means: another ending. More closure to days of gentlemen and ladies, fine handwriting on embossed stationery, certain conventions of class and character long associated with the Grosse Pointes.”
“The store also famously seized upon the Lilly Pulitzer-style, pink-and-green, country club look that became synonymous with Grosse Pointe matrons,…”
Ouch. This one hurts.
In an effort to end on an up note, we close with a new addition to the Preppy Princess: here is the Grosgrain Ribbon Handbag!
Just in time for spring, these are made in classic, grosgrain ribbon atop cotton canvas, a great combination available in three colorways:
They’re they perfect size, roomy without looking like an overnight bag, and we priced the bags in a fiscally friendly fashion. We would love to know what you think of them!
Until next time, grins & giggles and thoughts of spring!
