I've been a big fan of the Go International line at Target thusfar, particularly the collections by Tara Jarmon and Paul & Joe. For its latest collection, timed to the holiday season, Behnaz Sarafpour is a fitting choice. Known for her signature lace trims and ribbon details, the rising NYC design star is now bringing her ultra-feminine touch down to a more affordable level.
Dominated by sleek black and white palettes, these classic, urban pieces would be just right for holiday parties and winter work ensembles. Though I think this collection is more hit or miss than some of the other Go International lines, there are definitely some real gems at great prices. I particularly love this taffeta party dress below. Here are some of my favorite finds, available in stores and online now.
Taffeta Dress with Grosgrain Waist, $44.99, available here.
Twill Trench Coat in Ebony, $49.99, available here.
Brocade Skirt in Granite, $39.99, available here.

If you have been searching for a safe way to dye your hair down there, search no further because Betty is here. According to their website, Betty is the first safe color specially formulated for the hair down there. The founder of the company said she was inspired by all of the women she noticed at her salon that would ask for an extra bottle of color so they could match their down there hair to their perfectly highlighted locks. Betty comes in BROWNbetty, BLACKbetty, BLONDEbetty, AUBURNbetty and my personal favorite FUNbetty, which is, you guessed it, Hot Pink. Does anyone else find this disturbing at all? I have not tried it, so I cannot attest to how well it works, but I just found it so interesting that I had to share it with all of you and find out what you think. Would you ever use this? If you do, please come back and tell us all how it works. You can buy any of the colors, here for $20. Take the poll below to tell us if you would consider dying your down there hair.
You know how you'll sometimes get a whiff of a woman wearing such a great scent that you just have to stop her and ask what it is? That's how I recently stumbled upon the rather obscure Halloween Perfume by Jesus Del Pozo, and the woman wearing it said that her perfume is constantly prompting comments from random people on the street.
I can understand why. Nothing about this fragrance or its bottle evokes Halloween, but the scent is just as unique and surprising as the name. Light enough for daytime wear but bold enough for evening, the fragrance is extremely feminine and floral without being formal and has hints of iris, lime blossom, gardenia, mimosa, and lavender. You can buy the eau de toilette here. A 1-ounce bottle costs $14.36, a 1.7-ounce bottle is $22.96 and a 3.4-ounce bottle goes for $29.49.
