Target and TV

(from people magazine)

So I stayed up WAY too late last night watching the second half of the Kim Kardashian Wedding Spectacular. I'm so sick of this family, but of course I'm gonna watch. I love a good televised celebrity wedding.


~ For a four hour televised special, yes four hours!, Kim walked down the aisle with 10 minutes to spare. Ten minutes! They absolutely breezed through the actual wedding footage! It should have been two hours of build up and dress fittings, and two hours of just the big day. LAME!
~Kourtney tripped when she was walking down and almost dropped her baby. The audible gasp from the guests was so uncomfortable to watch. I bet she wishes they had edited that 30 seconds out.
~How long did Kim wear that second dress for? The editing made it look like it couldn't have been more than 10 minutes. I hope it was longer than that, if nothing more than for the sake of the Vera Wang workers who probably slaved over that train.
~Talking about her deceased father really got to me. I cried.
Whatever, I cry at anything these days.

Also, I would like to know why Parenthood isn't winning like every TV award possible.
I. Love. That. Show. It's so good. I originally watched it when Hulu had the entire first season available. I love any show that I can watch back to back episodes of, so I started watching online while on the treadmill. It took me a few episodes to really get into but now it's one of my favorite shows on TV. I tried describing it to my sister, but couldn't really do it justice. It's so heartfelt and touching. My eyes well up during pretty much each episode. Did I mention I'm kind of a crybaby?
Just watch it. You won't be sorry.

I also really like the new show REVENGE. You never know with these if they are going to be awful or interesting. Three episodes in, it's another one I look forward to watching. Definitely one of my favorites of the new fall lineup.

In fashion news:
I heard the exciting announcement a few days ago! The next designer collaboration to hit Target is going to be....drum roll please...Jason Wu! This is super super exciting to me. I first heard of him in 2006 when Eva Longoria wore a sweet white number to the emmys that year. Since then he has shot to super stardom and has dressed uber celebrities AND the First Lady. The teaser they released looks like it's gonna be a good one. The countdown to February 5th starts...NOW! If it's anything like the Missoni juggernaut this is gonna be a big deal. Since I'm about a million times more excited for this collection, I'm definitely going to be waiting in line for the store to open. Although, knowing me, I will probably be snowed in that day and won't be able to go.

And of course, the dress that put him on the map:
