City Pulse

Who wouldn’t want to look like the stars? Why wouldn’t someone grab the chance to dress in the latest and stylish designer clothing? Well, when a shirt is the same price as your months rent, passing it up isn’t that hard. But, finally we can give into fashion temptation! The latest trend has been for renowned designers to create collections available to everyone – no matter what budget you’re on!

Target’s GO INTERNATIONAL line has been creating collections for their stores since the beginning of 2006. Luella Bartley, Tara Jarmon, and Proenza Schouler are just a few of the designers that have created lines for Target stores. Hitting the racks starting July 15, the newest addition to the GO INTERNATION line, Libertine, brings a rugged, yet sophisticated and preppy look to Target. The items in the collection are versatile, can be mixed and matched and are perfect for a casual day at work or out and about on a Saturday afternoon. With prices ranging from $12.99 to $39.99, who can resist?!

No one represents London’s chic style better than Kate Moss. And luckily for us, we can now strut the British supermodel’s look – whether at work, on a date or out with friends. In April 2007 Moss unleashed her own line for the trendy Topshop, the place to shop in Britain, with her clothing also being available at Barneys and Barneys online. Inspired from Kate’s own creative clothing combinations – her classic skinny jeans, vests and funky accessories – her line can make anyone look like a style icon.

Carrie Bradshaw changed women’s closets forever, but according to Sarah Jessica Parker, “fashion is not a luxury – it’s a right.” Parker has since left her Manolos behind to make clothing for those who live in the real world. Her line, Bitten, is being sold exclusively through the retailers Steve & Barry, and everything is under $20! Made to fit every woman’s body, sizes 2-22, the endless array of combinations and styles are bound to please anyone!

In my head I'm singing,"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, it's Amore". I know you're never this literal, but couldn't help it! :)…
