Selena Gomez/KMart & Nastia Liukin/Penney’s (+ a few Preppy Sales & Savings)

Hello-Hello, and welcome to an absolutely frenzied day!

We are so incredibly behind schedule today our post is almost all photos, we begin with an early look at the Selena Gomez for Kmart Dream Out Loud collection.

When we initially posted about the line it had not yet landed with a retailer; the deal with Kmart was finalized two weeks ago.

According to today’s story in WWD, Kmart is using the line to help revitalize its Juniors department.

“First Kohl’s and Avril Lavigne, then Wal-Mart and Miley Cyrus, and recently J.C. Penney with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Now, it’s Kmart’s turn to rejuvenate its juniors department with Selena Gomez.”

The most expensive item in the collection is priced at $24.

The collection is scheduled for a launch coinciding with back-to-school shopping.

The Dallas Morning News has more on the new line for JC Penney:

“Designed for girls 8 to 12 years old, the collection will be promotionally priced from $11.99 to $21.99 and will be in stores just in time for the back-to-school season…”

Here are a few styles.

And a couple more styles from the upcoming line.

The pieces will be available in sizes 4 to-6x, 7 to 16 and plus.


We do have a few Sales & Savings should you be seeking fiscally friendly retail opportunities, beginning with Kate Spade, offering an additional 25% off sale merchandise.

The Kate Spade offer ends April 4.

J. Crew is doing an additional 30% off sale merchandise, albeit with a twist we haven’t noticed before.


The interesting thing about this one is what’s in the fine print: “Offer not valid on phone orders.” Perhaps this has been the case forever, we just never noticed.  At any rate, to receive the discount use promo code EXTRA30 at checkout, this promotion ends April 1.

And thus ends our ever-so-short post!

Headwear for a Princess, Prepalicious Sales & Savings

Hello-Hello, we hope it is cheery and sunny in your corner of the globe, it is simply beautiful here at the Prepatorium.

We switch gears a tad, taking a break from our dedicated coverage of the major Fashion Weeks, including the fourth and final week of designer shows now underway in Paris.  Fear not, we shan’t slight the incredible styles being revealed, and will focus on them in the next day or so.

We simply wanted to take a more lighthearted approach today, things or events that might prompt a smile, perhaps more appropriate to our Friday Fun category, but golly, TP is feeling wild and crazy, so we’ll just have some Friday-Fun-on-Thursday!

We start with a cute and creative way to transform those less-than-attractive helmets worn for protection into magical style statements. Behold, the Princess and the Frog.



For a closer look, here is a better photo of the Princess model, what a great way to stay safe under one’s helmet while also feeling fashionable and fun.

Should we be concerned?


Next, a cosmetic update from the Times with their story For Lashes, Blue is Back

Some readers may carry memories of colored mascaras from back in the eighties. Apparently the trend has returned, according to Hilary Howard’s story, and a plethora of colors awaits your discerning selection. Or not.


Next, a few Sales and Savings opportunities for you to ponder.


The Tory Burch Fall Sale is underway with some significant savings.

Another brand with preppish leanings, Kate Spade, has started its Friends and Family Sale.


The promotional event extends a 30% discount off one’s entire purchase, it  ends Oct. 4.  To receive the discount use promo code FALLFF09 at checkout.

Another favorite retailer, Garnet Hill, has started their October Clearance, with markdowns taken throughout the store.



Next, news that yet another interesting magazine cover has been landed by a Gossip Girl star. In this case, Ed Westwick is showcased on the cover of Arena Homme+ for their Winter/Spring 2009/2010 issue.

Arena Homme+ describes itself as “The World’s Leading Men’s Fashion Magazine” and while we were unable to locate a website for the publication, we did locate an Arena Homme+ Facebook page for those seeking more information. Additionally, Amazon offers the magazine. (It all looks a little odd to us, but then we’re not very familiar with the magazine.)


We close with a treat discovered by our friends at the Pink and Green Scene, where their vigilance in seeking out all things in our favorite color scheme leads to such discoveries as this Little MissMatched Accent Pillow.

If interested in adding this to the decor at your Palace, it is now on sale at $19.99 right here.

Smiles and hopes of a buoyant day to everyone!
