So I’m so excited about Gurung’s 90-peice collection including apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry. ready-to-wear pieces start as low as $20 (that’s insane!!)  and bags, shoes and accessories begin at $13 (that means high fashion for literally rock bottom prices!!–YES!!) His theme of love is fitting as his collection comes out 4 days before Valentine’s Day. His looks were inspired by the ida of  a “tender love story” and includes “first date” and “meet the parents” prints. His collection is filled with bold colors, beautiful prints, and  feminine silhouettes. Let’s take a look at some of the pieces!!! hopefully his love inspired looks will make you fall in love with his collection,  like I did!!

Gorgeous is all I have to say!!! I love a lot of these pieces bc you can wear them year around– you can pair them with strappy sandals, or tights, heels and a cardigan. So I hope you have set your alarms for midnight sunday so you can go out and get some of these beautiful pieces, or take a chance online–hopefully the system won’t crash!! What are you favorite pieces in his collection??
