Wu is Me

I had missed out on Missoni (Hawaii was much more fun at the time) and did not make the extra effort for the Jason Wu collection for Target as I was not particularly in the mood to line up that day in the wee hours of the morning and fight the crowds.  I did however manage to walk away with this little white and black dress as it was sitting on another rack just waiting to be found. 

Dress- Jason Wu for Target

Mani Color of the Month- Plum Forgot

This Face Stockholm color for J. Crew called "Plum Forgot"  has been my new favorite.  I thought the not-quite-pink-not-quite-purple color would be fun for February instead of my usual valentine red.

To see last month's mani color view here.
