Happy memorial day everyone!
School is finally out for summer (woohoo!) and the big item at the top of my to-do list is to clean out my exploding closet. So check out the "shop our closets" tab if you're a size medium/large or 10/12. This is just the beginning - I'll be posting more in the next few weeks as the closet-cleaning odyssey continues!

I woke up this morning and I was so happy to see that the Prabal Gurung Collection for J.Crew had been released.
Prabal Gurung is a relatively new designer who presented his first RTW collection in 2009. He was named a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up in November last year and in collaboration with J.Crew, he created 6 limited edition pieces for J.Crew. As I looked over every single piece, I just couldn't take my eyes off the beautiful designs. The bows in the dresses and tops are just so feminine but with an edge. And the white denim jacket is simply breathtaking.
Did you fall in love with Prabal Gurung's designs too? What's your favorite piece?

The first is the Sparkle Flower Necklace 40979. I saw it on a sales associate and my heart jumped. I bought it with the 20 percent discount card I was lucky enough to receive but it wasn't available until May 17. It was a long wait but totally worth it. The flowers are a pinkish tan or apricot as the description states. Small white pearls rest in the middle of each bud and there are rhinestones randomly placed around the buds. The chain is brass. It's really quite beautiful.
The following necklace is the Crystal Wildfire Necklace 45954.
The mini version 43177 is currently on sale. It's reminds me of the rays of the sun or an Egyptian collar. It's really unique and pretty fabulous. My favorite sales associate pointed it out on a mannequin and it turns out that it was the last one left and that was all it took. I'm planning on wearing it yet again tomorrow.
Have a great week.
