Nina Garcia's books made me want to change my closet, awakened the fashion stylist-wannabe in me, inspired me to have more fun with what I wear (even on a limited budget). FAR FROM BEING A FASHION EXPERT, I'M SIMPLY A STUDENT OF STYLE. If indeed style is "finding out who you are and who you want to be in the world," then I'm chronicling the discovery through my version of a Little Black Book. I hope this reaches Nina -- Thank you for inspiring me!

JASON WU FOR TARGET
Dream shopping sequence: I'm among the ladies going gaga over the Jason Wu for Target collection (which is almost sold out according to reports). Below are the three items that would definitely be in my shopping bag. What would be in yours?
The flared dress in black with nude patent belt. Is that lace tulle? Lovely detail!
The poplin dress in navy. I think the stripes are so pretty. There are actually similar versions of this here in Singapore, from the local boutiques.
The short sleeve tee with tie in blush. So feminine! Perfect with black skirt, pants, shorts, jeans...everything.
On the Today Show, I remember Jason saying the collection is inspired by "the American Girl in Paris." Very French new wave cinema. And the best thing about them - most items are priced below USD60. True?
Now how do you say "Lovely!" in French? Joli!
As we all know Jason Wu's popularity zoomed after Michelle Obama wore his creation to the Inaugural Ball, January 2009.
