Oh, it’s going to be a busy weekend, trust you me.  Not only is social media being blown up with New York Fashion Week posts (wish I were there), but it’s also Chinese New Year, the weekend before Valentine’s Day, there’s a bunch of sales going on and the Prabal Gurung for Target collection is being released!  But for now, I will just highlight a few.  :)

1) The good friends at Jigsaw London are having a MAJOR SALE.  Basically all of their already marked down sale items are going on EXTRA SALE, like an extra 20% off.  And you could use code SandyALaMode7447 to shop it from 2/8/13 12:00AM PST – 2/13/13 12:00AM PST.  Here are some of my favorites below.  Shop it now!

2) The Prabal Gurung for Target collection is going to be released this Sunday.  You never know with these things if they will be sold out within an hour after store opening (and on Ebay right after) or if there will be tons of items left for days and weeks to follow.  But since I live SUPER close to a Target, you can bet I’ll be heading there as they open… here are some of the items I am hoping to snag… well not all of them, but I’ll try on whatever is there and see what fits best!  :)  Which ones are your favorites?  Are you going to be there at store open?  See the full lookbook here.

3) And lastly, this Sunday is Chinese New Year and you can bet we’ll be celebrating with family and friends!  It basically means we’re going to EAT, A LOT.  Here’s a picture from last year’s Chinese New Year celebration where Austin was pretty much passed out the whole time.  This year, he’ll probably be crawling/scooting/getting into everything at our friend’s house haha.


Hope you all have a great weekend!  What are your plans?

    Happy New Year, Sandy! I’m not going to bother with the new collection since we’re getting a major snowstorm today into tomorrow. Any browsing I do will probably be online!

    It WILL be a busy weekend for ya! I want to grab wedge sandals from the Target collab but not sure I’m heading out to the stores (or online) on Sunday. How cute is Austin with his red envelopes? We’re hopefully visiting family & celebrating CNY this weekend.

    So much goodness in this post Sandy! I will miss celebrating Chinese New Year this year…when I worked in telecommunications, my largest clients were our 2 largest asian dealers. Huge in the community. And I ALWAYS attended huge CNY celebrations with them. Such fun and I kinda loved getting red envelopes, not going to lie.

    Happy Chinese New Year to you and your family Sandy! :)

    I really want to go check out my local Target for the collab but not sure if I’ll have time with the CNY celebration of dim sum and being with family. :( I hope I can squeeze in a little time for it! haha..
