Wearing Red with Green




olive green military jacket from, red ribbed turtleneck by Lauren Ralph Lauren, Joe's Jeans,  olive Rosegold suede booties

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, my friends! Among many other items, I received this red turtleneck from my husband, and a bunch of Sephora OPI nail polishes, to be featured later on the blog.

I finally got an oversized military jacket, and it may be at the end of the trend, but I look forward to wearing it as a casual coat. All of my other coats are dressier.

Target x Neiman Marcus Proenza Schouler Sweatshirt



Target x Neiman Marcus collection: Proenza Schouler sweatshirt, skinny cargo pants by Blank Denim, Sam Edelman camo flats, Nixon watch, OPI Rudolph Red nail polish

Here's my review of the Target x Neiman Marcus collaboration which released Saturday! 

I had my eye on only a few pieces, all clothing of course! Overall I wish there was more clothing and shoes in this collection and not so many gifty-type items, like dog leashes and lunch boxes. 

First I tried on the Robert Rodriguez sleevless blouse. I loved it on the hanger, it was weighty, with lots of beautiful layers of fabric and ruffles. It was high quality for Target. But on me, it made me look huge and thick. So back to the rack it went.

Then the Lela Rose blouse. I almost bought it. You have to size up, though, there is no stretch to the fabric. It is very pretty and flattering. 

Finally I tried on this sweatshirt. I didn't like it on the hanger, but it is very cosy on. And let's face it, I don't have very many sweatshirts,  they are too casual for my style. But this was just interesting and arty enough for me! I sized up to Medium to get a looser fit. 

Did you get anything, my friends? Do tell!
