i had no idea this was even in the works, let alone going to release in Harlem, NY this sunday!!!dolce vita, a shoelover favorite, has joined the ranks of liberty of london, rodarte, zac posen, and cynthia vincent, to create a wallet-friendly collection of boots & shoes exclusively for target. after doing a little research on this, looks like this info was released late july, also noting that the collection will eventually release to the rest of us non-new yorkers on Aug. 22. (ladies, mark your calendars)

as a dolce vita fan, i couldn't help but notice the vast similarity the grey studded oxfords (above, for $29.95) had with one i've seen a few months ago. (below) is the actual Dolce Vita Fallon oxford for..wait for it..$139.95!!! cheapy oxfords, get here already!
and while i am on the subject of target collabs, it has also been brought to my attention that london-based MULBERRY will also be doing a sweet little collection exclusively for target. first thing that popped into my mind? THE ALEXA (eponymous for alexa chung, $1,195). i really really really hope they design a cost conscious version. really hope so. guess we'll just have to wait for some photos to release, or until it hits stores and Oct. 10!
