Zac Posen for Target?

I ent to Target last night and right there in front of my eyes was this amazing tuxedo jacket with a big sign over it that said Zac Posen. Did my eyes deceive me? Have I been living under a rock? Zac Posen at Target? I am sure I would have heard about this - I love fashion! But I have been so busy lately - I completely missed this. They had so much stuff to this collection. Shirts, pants, swimsuits, dresses - you name it! Of course I had to look it up when I came home and it appears that this has been big fashion news for a while. I can't believe I had no clue about this! Two pieces were must haves in my opinion. One is a ruffle dress - which I have no where to wear it. I did try on another dress but it didn't suit me. I almost bought the ruffle dress for my daughter's 6th grade dance, but it was too big and with getting it sized it would have cost $80 for the dress and then at least another $30+ to get is taken in, so I think that is a bit much to pay for 6th grade. But I kind of regret not getting it for her, because it was so amazing. I did grab the tuxedo jacket for myself. Not that I need another black jacket - but this one is divine. I had to have it as soon as I saw it. Granted the weather here is getting hot already - so I probably won't be wearing it for a while. I can't believe I spent $50 for a jacket at Target! I haven't taken a picture of the jacket yet, but I did come across this picture of Dakota Fanning Wearing the jacket. Seriously how cute is this jacket? I am so glad I grabbed it - too bad it's going to be in the high 80's tomorrow! Now I am actually wanting cool weather! HA!

OK, so anyway - this is a nail blog, not a fashion blog, so let's get back to nails. But um going back to the jacket for a fraction of a second, won't this look great with Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polish in Under the Stars? 

This color is so amazing! It is a dark almost black Navy blue - with the most amazing sparkle thrown in. I did need two coats to get the depth on this one. But it has to be one of the most amazing colors. So many Navy blues with sparkles like this fail. Ji got this one perfectly!

Or maybe I could wear the jacket with Dead Calm? This is like the base for Under the Stars, but a little brighter and a creme. This is a one coater of navy blue perfection. I will warn you though, I wear the RBL base coat system with these - even for swatching, no base coat and you can pretty much guarantee yourself some stained nails!

Heck, I think Teal will even look good with this jacket! This is another perfect one coater and again, a base coat is a must for these richly pigmented dark colors. 

Heck I think I could even wear Recycle with this jacket! 

Let's face it, any color will go with this jacket! RBL nail polish and Zac Posen are a perfect match! Highly sought after polishes for a highly sought after designer!

And for those of you wondering what the heck I am holding in these photos, it is a Vejigante mask. This is a "traditional" mask from Puerto Rico. They were worn hundreds of years ago in carnival celebrations in Puerto Rico.  Here is a better photo of my Vejigante.

Wow this post was all over the place! So what do you guys think of my jacket? Cute right? Which polish would you wear with this jacket?

  1. That is the cutest jacket!
    You Aren't helping my RBL lemmings. I like all of them except Recycle, never been much of a green fan.

  2. Oh! That mask might explain many people's clown phobia, man that's creepy in a cool way.

  3. Sorry for creating the lemmings. Her colors really are great though.

    I know I always wonder if the mask will scare kids when they come over. But so far, no one seems to be afraid of it. Everyone is curious about it - but so far never scared.
