There was a time when I couldn’t leave the house without a piece of

Target is one of my favorite places to shop. I’m there at least once a week
buying groceries, books, toys, sundries and whatever else I can get my
hands on. Target continues building relationships with trendsetting
designers and bringing their unique styles to Target shoppers. The
collection from Dean Harris is simple, yet adds just the right amount of
elegance any woman would crave. His designs can often be seen at
Barney’s New York, selling for $1000s. Harris’ collection for Target
doesn’t miss a step. This flower cuff bracelet makes me smile. With an
amethyst center, the silver cuff would be a great addition to any
wardrobe. Available at Target for $79.99.

necklace is to die for. The honey-colored resin is reminiscent of amber
and the gold-toned metal is an unexpected complement. Available at
