My obsession with Jason Wu began last July. As I was shopping for a birthday dress, a sales person convinced me to try on this dress (although it was roughly $1K above my price range)... and I remember thinking, 'why not?' People, let me tell you why this was not a good idea: 1) I felt like a million bucks in this dress. I mean - like a 1950's bombshell siren as soon as I put it on. 2) no matter how it looked, I still couldn't afford it. 3) I later saw Revenge character 'Emily Thorne' wear this on the 4th of July episode and was SO GLAD I didn't buy it. Really, no one looks like a bombshell next to this girl. Dodged a bullet there.
Since trying on that dress, I've been stalking all Jason Wu designs. Seriously, the man is a genius at dressing women. Just look at these styles... so classic, chic, and even perfect for work. In. Love.
Based on this obsession, you can imagine how THRILLED I am that the Jason Wu for Target collection (read: the Jason Wu collection that is actually affordable) will be launched Feb 5. I've picked out a few of my favorites from the look book already - love, love, LOVE all of these looks:
