I’m a Jenny?!

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Annasui6 By Sunday afternoon, the day the "Gossip Girl"-inspired Anna Sui for Target collection officially debuted in select stores, sizes were picked over (is everyone a medium?). The quality seems better than some past Target designer collections, which photograph amazingly well but disappoint in person. I was generally impressed by the Sui pieces, other than the sequin feather detailing on a gray dress which looked like something my kids glued on. Swept up in the moment, and pressured by the two girls grabbing dresses around me, I wanted a piece of Sui. I picked a silk sleeveless black wrap dress with white geometric print. Realized when I got to work today and reviewed the Target Look Book, which is divided into four themes, for each of the four main female characters, that my dress is a Jenny. A Jenny! I would have thought I'd want to be a Serena, but feel more appropriate in a Blair. Never even considered the rocker-edged Jenny. It's a whole new me. Assuming I don't decide I'm too old, or too busty to wear the dress and return it.

Anna Sui + Gossip Girl = Target

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Blackberrys ready? Here's today's scoop: Imaginative fashion designer Anna Sui (the First Lady is a fan) is working on a collection for Target, drawing inspiration from the four main female characters on Gossip Girl. Funny, it was just last week that one of the show's evil schemers asked another, "Are you a Carrie?" Ancient history. Sooo much more modern to debate Serena vs. Blair tendencies. The collection will hit Target stores Sept. 13. XOXO! | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
