Victoria Beckham for Target

Image
Target used to be the darling of the designer diffusion line. It's been a few years since those glory days, but I think we're all anxious to see a return. Perhaps Victoria Beckham could be the one to usher in a new era of Target collections.

The collection has a few things going for it. Target is offering the collection up to a size 26W. (Plus sizes will only be available at select stores and online, unfortunately). A cute collection of girls, toddler and baby clothes accompanies the adult collection. According to Target, most items will be under $40 with nothing topping $70.

You can see the whole collection on Target's site. It's available April 9th. Here are a few FMF favorites. Tell us yours in the comments.

Review: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner

Image
I have a confession. I'm lazy when it comes to makeup. Actually, that's not true. I'm lazy when it comes to mornings. I don't like them. I do everything I can to trim tasks from my mornings so I can swipe my phone alarm to snooze a few more times. Because of this, I'm not one to wear eye makeup (or even makeup) every single day. And I'm always on the lookout for a simple beauty products I can apply while running out the door.

I have a second confession. I'm not good at liquid eyeliner. On top of being lazy in the morning, I lack the patience to properly practice. When I first saw liquid liner in a marker format, I got really excited, but the first few drugstore brands I tried let me down. I was reluctant to try a pricier brand lest that disappoint me too.

Then, I spotted this periwinkle blue Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner from Stila at Sephora. I tried it on my hand and found that it actually goes on that color! I let impulse take over and spent t…

Pick of the Week: Target Linen Pants Revisted

Image
I love a good pair of linen pants, but a good pair can be pricey. That's why I wrote about these Target linen pants back in 2011. They used to carry them every year, but the last two years they've either drastically changed them or skipped them all together. This year they are back and better than ever! The pants have always had a drawstring waist, which I felt compelled to cover up. It was never the most attractive, but the pants this year but a much nicer waistline. It's still a drawstring, but the band for the waist is wider and more flattering than some of the previous versions Target has offered. The pants cost $25 and come in a few colors (more colors in stores than online).

For tips on wearing linen pants just our our post on four ways to style linen pants.
