If you missed out on the Missoni for Target collection earlier this month, don't worry there's plenty more great designer collaborations from the retail giant still on the horizon. Yesterday Target launched two new designer collaborations, Josie Natori for Target which is a 35-piece collection featuring sleepwear and intimates, and Albertus Swanepoel for Target, an 8-piece collection of hats. Both designer collections will be available for a limited time and feature the signature touches and prints that will have you looking like a million bucks for less than $50!
While the "Carrie" necklace from Sex and the City was all the rage eight years ago, now it's all about the monogram. BaubleBar's newest designs take a classic spin on the monogram and have added it to necklaces to make a charming present for just about any teenager, mom, grandmother, friend or aunt. Available in gold and sterling silver the custom monograms include any three letters or you can go for just one initial -- great for hip moms that want to wear their child's initials. The best part about the new BaubleBar collection is that it won't break the bank as each pendant piece is under $115. With the holidays coming up, I better add this to my wish list!

If you looked at yourself before you had kids and you look at yourself now, you can definitely tell the difference in the way your skin hangs, stretches and just plain sags in places you didn't know could sag.

A few weeks ago we told you about Citrus Lane, the monthly subscription service that delivers new parent care packages to your door. Because of the popularity of this model, the market is literally exploding with new, fun subscription service companies. Some of the coolest are tailored specifically for parents and kids. Perfect for upcoming cold, snowy days, Kiwi Crate is a service that delivers parent-designed, kid-tested kids' craft and project-filled boxes right to your door for less than $20 per month. And for expecting and new moms, Bluum delivers project discovery boxes with 4 or 5 deluxe samples each month. Try the products, then order through the company's online shop. You never know what specific projects and products will show up but that's just half the fun.
I'm a huge fan of polka dots. It's such a fun and classic print that looks great on pants, silk shirts, pleated dresses and skirts. This season polka dots are seen in navy and white and tan and black neutrals and look great paired up with skinny jeans and stacked heels. Go ahead and be a little retro this season and put on a polka dot print...just for fun!
