My favorite is the Lip Blush in EnergyShow photos by Ken Pao and Me

I wanted to give you guys a peek backstage where all the hair and makeup happened before the #TargetStyle fashion show! Did any of you catch the Target commercials last night during the Emmy’s? (It was that show, I was there, in the front row! #nbd) ;) Literally, still cannot get over how great of an experience it was. For this week, we are featuring another trend for Fall: the tailored look. It’s all about a clean, structured look featuring long lines, sophisticated jackets, and top-handle satchels. Again, Target won me over with a pair of pants. Cobalt blue is huge for fall and as soon as I spotted the striped trousers on the model above, I knew they’d make it into my closet quickly. I also managed to snag the animal print tuxedo shirt and medium satchel from the Phillip Lim collection.

When incorporating the tailored look into my personal style, I just couldn’t have it too perfect-looking. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely appreciate a crisp white shirt and pants, but wanted this outfit to feel effortless. So I paired structured pieces (the pants, earrings, and bag) with a loose ponytail, silk blouse and open blazer. Perfect combination of tailored and tousled.
