oh joy! for target, amber venz, venzedits

The start of spring means that party season is upon us. As a working woman, I do not have a ton of time to scour party stores or the internet for picture-perfect party gear so I am thrilled about the new Target collaboration with fellow blogger, Oh Joy!. Joy really thought of every accessory and implement that you need to throw a Pinterest-worthy party. The entire collection coordinates so there is not a lot of thinking required.  Here are my favorite pieces:

Earlier this week I visited V Magazine in New York. Their office is well-placed on Mercer St. in SoHo alongside the likes of Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang and Proenza. Their lobby is a mini museum of limited edition, collaborative products. I started by taking cell phone shots of the room, but when I got to the Goyard trunk, perfectly merchandised with custom Visionaire Louis Vuitton, I had to pull out my real camera.

While I was there, Steven showed me their newest piece of art: the V Magazine x David Yurman collaboration limited-edition box set featuring the V88 The Music Issue and a custom-designed David Yurman bracelet.

Only 300 of these editions exist (mine is #117, as you can see) and a portion of the proceeds go to The VH1 Save the Music Foundation which aims to restore music programs in public schools across America.

Last night I rearranged my bookshelves to give the signed box prime real estate.

Earlier this year, I was asked to curate and style spring and summer 2014 campaigns for H&M in partnership with ELLE magazine. After a few months of work, the campaign has finally launched! Today, you can go into any of the 300 H&M stores across the nation and see my curated selection of spring must-haves. There are hang tags on the clothes, posters and trend cards with styling tips that you receive at checkout.

Yesterday, I flew to New York to shoot a segment for EXTRA at the H&M Times Square location. Watch tonight at 7PM EST, 5:30 CST to see my talk through spring trends and share some advise on how to style the looks (click here for local listings).

Here are some behind the scenes shots from yesterday’s shoot:
