COST-CONSCIOUS "COUTURE"

There are two new collections arriving soon and I am determined to get my hands on some of the pieces from both. First, Karl Lagerfeld for Macy's. I adore Chanel, but let's be honest - owning much of the real thing is not going to happen for me in this lifetime. So I am thrilled that Karl has condescended to design a line for Macy's. These are the items I most desire:





Top of the list is that dress with the exaggerated white collar - I have no idea what it will cost once it hits the stores, but it must be mine! The rest I will be content (barely) to admire from afar. Have you seen the whole collection? Check it out here at fashionista.com. What are your favorites? Share with the group in the comments!

The other upcoming collection that has me on the edge of my seat is the Missoni/Target collaboration. I dream of owning a Missoni rug; I am lucky enough to have one skirt by the designer. And the line for Target is lovely - I covet most of the clothes, but am aware that I can't come close to pulling most of them off. Here's what I love the best:





When it comes to choosing between these items (if I am lucky enough to find any of them available online, considering the mad rush that will surely overwhelm Target.com), I will have a hard time deciding between the scarves and the bowl. Take a look at the whole collection here, also courtesy of fashionista.com. What are you drooling over? And should I go for the scarves or the glassware (or both)?
