Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection At Target

Anna Suis Gossip Girl Inspired Collection At Target 6 300x247

The Cut has all the deets on Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection available at Target shortly.

The line will be in stores and online from September 13 to October 17th so one assumes it’s a limited edition line up but chances are you’ll catch it at your local Target’s clearance wrack if the Muse has anything to say about it.  Consisting of nineteen looks inspired by several of our favorite Gossip Girl characters, the line does leave a little bit to be desired in my eyes.

Gossip from The Cut says that Target Executives can’t handle the heat and aren’t wanting to associate the collection with Gossip Girl as the series is just a little too racy.  Ahem…you think?   But boy do I adore all that countless acts of badness,  makes me want to be a mean girl too!

No worries big wig execs the Muse finds the entire line very innocent and girlish nothing I see here would S and B even think about wearing to bed never mind out on the streets of the Upper West Side.

As for this Muse I’m unsure if Anna Sui has even seen the likes of Gossip Girl prior to slapping this collection together.  So not feeling the love and thinking it’s more drab than fab at this point.  It’s ok, I wasn’t really wanting to take on the world of Gossip Girl fashion anyway.

Here’s a few images from the line but a peep at the various looks at The Cut and let me know what you think.

Musings of the Day: Friends or Foe?

Hey chicas!

How’s Monday treating you? My Monday has been a nightmare. It’s a busy time at work plus I’m kinda feeling my way around WordPress at the moment. You may have noticed some of our comments got lost in the move on older posts.

Sad sigh.

So sorry about that as we’ve had some bloody good blatter in the last few years haven’t we? Oh well guess we’ll just have to make some new memories together.

Why don’t we start out those memories with a new Musings for today!

Today’s Musings is a favorite topic of mine since I get asked the question alot. Are my friends as into makeup as I am?

Big junkies?

Tell the Muse all about it and jump ahead for my answer.

WANT IT: DuWop Private Red Lipstick

DuWop Private Red Lipstick 300x191

Excuse me DuWop but when will your new Private Red Lipstick ever come back into stock at Sephora?

Oh how I yearn for it!

Although I should be ever so tired of the color-changing lipstick and gloss rage I can’t help but feel that special WANT feeling when I laid eyes on DuWop Private Red Lipstick.  The formula adapts to each person’s unique body chemistry and adjusts accordingly to provide a killer perfect red shade.

Yes, yes I do believe it’s been said and done before but I’m laying bets this one could prove more pigmented and gorgeous than all the rest making it the fairest of them all!

Now if Sephora would just listen to my need and get it in stock already.

Available soonish for $22 at Sephora.

Have you tried DuWop Private Red Lipstick?

Is it on your wish list?

Sneak Peek: Korres Natural Beauty Necessities Review and Swatches

Just between us, I’ve been the queen of cheap lately. I’m not sure what brought on my sudden cheapieness but I’m thinking it’s a few things. At first I thought it might be the economy, after that it was the recession. Finally I’ve decided that cheaphood comes from 1. having way too much makeup and 2. just wanting to simplify things and keep it simple.

You like simple, natural, cheap makeup? Oh you do, do you. Me too.

That’s why I’m all about the brand new Korres Natural Beauty Necessities.
