A roundup of this week’s style news would be totally remiss if it didn’t include this little chunk of fashion-y gold: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target! Mark your calendars now: The limited-edition collection is scheduled to debut September 15 with more than 100 pieces. Target’s behind-the-scenes blog has the details, plus a sneak-peek video to get you all excited. [A Bullseye View]

The latest edition of online mag To & From—cofounded by DC’s own Meg Biram—is practically overflowing with chic goodies, all at the ready for your pending gifting needs, from Mother’s Day (get to it, procrastinators) and graduations to weddings and baby showers. Just consider this your warning: You will probably find a cute thing or five for yourself, too. [To & From Magazine]

It’s tough competition against Jennifer Lawrence’s photo-bombing
perfection
,
but our pick for Best Met Gala Recap came in form of these hilarious
little cartoon versions of eight of the night’s famous attendees. Our
personal fave: Miley. [Lucky]

Looking
for a new way to keep your hair off your neck once the weather
inevitably turns sticky and gross? Local blogger Melanie has you
covered: She enlisted fellow blogger, Chain Strap Purse’s Allison, for a
little video tutorial on a pretty cool-looking fishtail braid twist.
Her post is aimed at brides, but the braid-proficient among us could do
this for a regular summer evening, too. [LaBelleMel]

Our
fave Annapolis consignment shop, Navette, alerted us to BuzzFeed’s
deliciously nostalgic, gif-based reenactment of the ’90s-era joy of
ordering from the Delia’s catalogue. This was totally us. [Buzzfeed via

According
to Nicole Richie, fuchsia anemones are “a little slutty.” Watch the
bad-girl-turned-style-icon shamelessly stereotype different blooms (in a
boho lace blouse, naturally) with celeb florist Eric Buterbaugh in this episode of
AOL’s web series Candidly Nicole. We love this girl. [Refinery 29]
