I've been a bit out of it lately, so I nearly missed today's arrival of Philip Lim's capsule collection at Uniqlo! Thankfully I read Fashionista's informative post about it and stopped by on my way to my acupuncture appointment. Unfortunately, there were only three styles of dresses and a few skirts left by 6 p.m., but after trying on the T-shirt dress (too short!) and the racerback jersey dress (cute, but a bit too much fabric for me), I settled on the plaid shift, which is so not my usual style, but I love it. The line indeed runs big, but everything is cut amazingly well, and the jersey pieces are, believe it or not, fully lined. I might make another trip to see if anyone has returned the belted linen dress--sadly, today's shipment was the only one the store will be getting.

And while Sophia Kokosalaki (who was just fired from Vionnet) is rumored to be the next Go International designer, Target has posted images from Alice Temperley's line, which hits stores in September (after Libertine, which is next, in July). I've said it before, but I'll say it again: It looks like this is the best Go International collection yet. Here are my four favorite looks.

The belted linen dress is tiny, just so you know, and it doesn't hang right unless you are a size 0 and short. I passed on it--you missed nothing. The cream also looks dirty. The XS in the t-shirt dress is about three sizes bigger than the linen belted dress--seriously. I saw no linen dresses bigger than a M either, which I'd estimate was a very small size 4.
