While I tend to parent in a mostly gender neutral way, I still get a bit annoyed when I have to correct people when they call my son "she" or tell him he's "so pretty." I think it's mostly the polite Midwesterner in me that hates correcting people. That said, I couldn't not buy something from the Calypso St. Barth For Target line for my son . . . except all of the kids' clothes were girls' clothes. Undeterred, I found a way to make this Toddler Tunic ($13) work for my son. We tested it out on a day in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and I was pleased to note that only one out of about 10 passersby called him a girl (and I blame that on his cute curls).
Last night, I stopped by my nearest Target store to take a peek at what items from the Calypso St. Barth line the store had in stock. While the women's and children's clothing sections were chock-full of lovely frocks and breezy accessories, the home section was sadly lacking, relegated to a single end aisle of products. Undeterred, I quickly determined that the Glass Votives ($3 each) were the best match for my home.
I was pleasantly surprised by the thickness of the glass, especially considering the low price point. The quality of the etching was also high, and each glass is lined with silver. When lit, the votives produce a muted, lovely light. All in all, I'm quite pleased with my first purchase from the line.
Have you bought anything from the line yet? What was it? How do you like it?
Boho chic on a budget! Calypso St. Barth, the beach-inspired line favored by vacationing mamas, is the latest high-end designer to join forces with Target. On May 1, the Calypso for Target collection will hit stores (and the web), including adorable dresses, swimwear, rompers, and flip-flops for tots ranging from $10-$25. Like Splendid's recent collaboration with the retailer, the collection doesn't look any different than the pricier versions sold in the store. Click the slideshow for a peek at the clothes!
All the recent images of celebs relaxing on St. Barts have us dreaming about beach life, which is why we're super excited for Target's next designer collaboration with luxury resort and lifestyle brand Calypso St. Barth. Calypso, known for its bohemian, destination-chic style, is designing clothing, accessories, and home goods for Target, with prices ranging from $1.99-$79.99 (a far cry from their collection prices, where a dress might be $825). The collection will hit stores May 1, just in time for Summer. While we wait for the full collection photos, here are some current Calypso looks from its main collection that we hope make it in their Target line.
We're thrilled to present InStyle's exciting, exclusive story here on Fab!If the Target designer collaborations leave you reeling, than we’ve got good news! Calypso St. Barth, a favorite of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston (pictured above wearing Calypso) and Kate Beckinsale, is confirmed to create a limited-edition collection of fashion and home items for Target, set to launch May 1st in stores and online. “Calypso St. Barth is a renowned global brand with an incredibly loyal following and we think Target’s guests will love the no-fuss, sophisticated appeal of the collection,” Target’s senior vice president of merchandising Trish Adams told us exclusively.
