Target Musings

The Target Go: International collections haven't done it for me lately. I haven't been to see Thakoon in person, so I suppose it could be better than expected, but I'm honestly just not interested. Not really my style, thankyouverymuch. Private Label Collection 5, however, appeals much more to my slightly punkier sensibilities. I'm not gonna pretend it's anything special, but it looks a lot more promising than Thakoon, at least for me. Asymmetrical hemlines, grungy denim, fitted tops, zippers, studs, and black - yes, please.

Although if I'm gonna be honest here, I could reaaallly do without the horrendous puffed-ponytail-and-hoop-earrings combo the model is sporting with a lot of the looks. Target isn't so on target (har har, Target on target) with the styling, methinks. 

While we're talking about Go: International, I guess I should mention that BETSEY JOHNSON FOR TARGET WOULD BE BLOODY BRILLIANT!

Whoah, I said "methinks" and "bloody." I am turning into a Brit. I blame my daily reading of Style Bubble.

Betsey J for Target would be fantastic! I can only imagine how divine the accessories would be, too (for the first time since... Luella?)

You should really check out Thakoon asap. I was very impressed with the line. Some pieces (like the cardigans and a few tops) aren't that great but the dresses are just fabulous.

And, I'm with the above, Betsey accessories for Target would be amazing, I'm sure!

Funny I had been thinking the same thing - their collections haven't been the best choices. This new collect looks promising though - thanks for sharing!

I also vote for a Betsey J line, heck yeah.

Betsey Johnson would be awesome at Target but I've heard her camp has declared it a no-go. And ditto on the International collections - in print they are lackluster at best.

I was just thinking about how uninthused I was with their latest Go International lines. They're staple lines like Merona picqued my interest far more.

Ooh, you're right about that hairdo.

I love your blog! I like that you don't just focus on the high-priced, often hideous couture items, but that you include stuff from Target, TJ Max, etc. These are the stores that fit my budget. It's great to know that you don't have to look low-budgeted just because you are low-budgeted.

I've added a link to your blog on my blog:
