Organization is something some people excel at and other’s… not so much. I fall in the latter unfortunately. While I try my hardest to keep things as neat as I possibly can, life gets in the way sometimes and I admit I’m not as well organized as I should be.

Since their popular Sonny Munroe ‘D-Signed’ collection that debuted in August, Disney and Target has since released their second installment with (as promised) pieces inspired by the fashions of Alex Russo, a character played by Selena Gomez on Wizards of Waverly Place. I had a first-hand look at this collection recently and it is a lighter, more floral version of the Sonny Munroe collection. Very Selena Gomez!
Priced from $4.99 to $19.99, the Alex Russo “D-Signed” installment includes accessories such as headbands and caps as well as tees, skirts, dresses, pants, knit dresses, shorts, fashion tops and jackets. Tween girls are sure to fall in love with the Spring line and quite honestly I think parents will be quite pleased with the offerings as well. These are age appropriate cuts and designs that are trendy and right on track with the a tween’s fashion sense.
Pieces from the collection have been in Target stores for awhile now, so check your local outlet or online at Target.com
