At Least There Weren’t Wolves Around

A while back, I watched a horror movie called Frozen. It’s about 3 kids who get stuck in a chair lift after the ski resort has closed down for a long weekend. So, they’re stuck, like, 30 feet in the air and understandably freaked out. Then one of the guys decides to try and jump down to go for help. Dude jumps and attempts to land on his feet. Of course, he breaks both of his legs and his girlfriend and BFF are forced to watch him get eaten alive by wolves since he can’t run away. When I saw this, I thought “WTF? He’s so DUMB! Everyone knows when you’re falling, you should try to land flat instead of on your hands or feet.” Then I congratulated myself for being safe in bed and not being eaten alive by wolves. Fast forward to this week. I find the only patch of ice in Massachusetts (seriously, this is the mildest winter ever) and fall. hard. I try to catch myself with my left arm and end up with a fractured elbow. I now have a little sympathy for Mr. Jump and Land Feet First. But hey, at least there weren’t wolves around when I fell!

 

All of this is to say that I have no outfit posts this week. I’m healing quite well and can still type, but putting on clothes and doing my hair is a little difficult. but that’s okay. the Jason Wu for Target lookbook has been released. And it has cats. The collections are generally hit or miss with me; and that’s before seeing the (usually disappointing) fabrics in real life. But this collection has some lovely dresses, sweaters, and accessories. I might even line up for this release. As long as the line isn’t in a ski lift with ravenous wolves below me. No. You know what? I’d risk it. Especially for that striped dress and cat scarf!

 

You can see the whole collection on Target’s Facebook page.

    I really like the Jason Wu for Target stuff. It’s much more my style than Missoni was.

    1) Sorry about your elbow, but that story before it made this all sound freaking hilarious. 2) None of my friends want to camp out for Jason Wu with me, so guess who’s going to be sitting at Target by herself that Sunday morning… If you guessed me, you’re correct. But I need that navy and pink dress in my life. NEED.

    Oh crap, I’m so sorry to hear about your fractured elbow, but, like you, am glad you were not eaten by wolves.

    I love that our entire blogosphere is in love with the Wu cat line – I think we’ll need a “how’d they style the kitty scarf” posts the week of Feb. 6th.

    Oh no, poor elbow…and poor dude eaten by wolves, I will be sure to skip that movie:)
    Stopping in over from StyleN links…
    Agreed on the Target collab hit or miss…this one does look promising tho..and I might line up as well…not much of a morning person- so it really depends on my mood, lol.
    Following along now…can’t wait to read more.
    Best

    oh my gosh… that movie would TOTALLY freak me out!!! i’m so sorry that you fell! i hope you’re recuperating nicely and will be back in full force sooner than later with lots of gorgeous outfit posts. i love the collection you posted below, it has some nice pieces. i like the navy dress with the stripes along the bottom.

    Never heard of that movie and for good reason. ewww. what will they come up with next? But you poor pretty thing!! I’ve fallen and caught myself with my hand = fractured wrist, so I feel your pain. The worst. Hope you’re healing well. Love the juxtaposition of this post. Lead in with horrible movie and incident for you then amazing Jason Wu clothes!! 

  • Noelani@MonPetitChouChou January 19, 2012, 12:52 pm

    Totally freaked out by that movie and will avoid it at all costs. I wasn’t sure how you’d pull this in with Jason Wu, but you did. The lookbook reminds me that I need to braid my hair like that. But more importantly, hope you have a swift recovery.

    I love the lookbook!  The blue dress with red trim looks absolutely fab!

    This is one collection I am excited about, but it’s bound to be GONE by the time I’m able to get there, and I don’t want to pay the vultures on Ebay. Sad! (debbie downer noise)
