why I can't go to Target

Saturday morning I woke up smiling because my alarm said "Go To Target"
The Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration dropped yesterday, and I wanted to be at the front of the line to check it out. 
Due to my impossible work schedule as a grad student, I rarely have time to shop in person, and typically do all my shopping online... so this trip to Target was my personal Saturday treat. 
I think the universe knew I shouldn't be shopping, because when I walked into the store and immediately fell in love with everything, I reached into my purse to pick out which card would be my latest victim only to find my hand reaching into nothing. I left my wallet at home... doh!

So now I am at home drooling at everything that I love online... such is the circle of shopping

But seriously, Target has all of my cold weather wish list items covered and more!
Still thinking that this fur snood should come home with me....


  1. Oh my...so many lovely pieces! What a shame about leaving your wallet a home.


  2. I went looking for this shirt - http://daniellesotherblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/targets-holiday-look-book.html - but they didn't have it at my local Target. I guess I could buy online, but it's the kind of thing you want to see in person first, ya know? 

    Happy shopping! That tribal printed scarf is awesome! I would have picked it up if I didn't already have a imilar one!

  3. I didn't get to go :(  Loving the fur beret!


  4. I can vouch for the furry snood! It's worth it. They have some cap toe pumps that are mocking me right now too.

  5. I'm grateful that there are no stores like this around here. I'd be broke all the time. That gold satchel is SO sweet for the holidays! x

  6. I'm so sorry to hear that... I wish you a great shopping trip when you get the opportunity again. You should definitely buy the bag and the jacket. the beret is also amazing!

  7. I went to Target this morning and there are SO many things that I want! They have really stepped up their style section :-)


  8. these items are just the prettiest! in want with them all!

  9. oh no!!! at least you can online shop

  10. Oh my gosh - I have done the whole "leaving the wallet thing at home on accident" so many times...nice to know I'm not alone!  LOL!  But kinda a bummer for you since there are a few gorgeous pieces here!  Love the polka dot scarf and the fur snood!

  11. I'm obsessed with this collection as well.  I was just drooling over those Marc Jacobs pouches, and this morning I told my hubby that I'd love the Alice + Olivia bike for Christmas.  A girl can dream, right?  :)

  12. These are super wonderful collab stuff....you have wonderful taste!


  13. With the Target collab, I either couldn't find anything I liked or anything worth what they were charging! Sad day! I certainly do love that metallic satchel though!

  14. Ohhhh I went today and it was a disaster... That place is a goldmine right now! After working for the corporate side of Target, I'm just now getting to a place I can love them again hahaha and the hiatus was kind of nice... Now, back to being miserrrabbleee because I want everything! 

    It's an Easy Life

  15. I'm really glad Target's not on the way home from work like it used to be. Those "just pop in" trips added up quickly. I can totally relate to going in and dropping a ton!

  16. Oh wow, I would have had a small fit if that had happened to me haha!  I think your Target is much better than Target here in Australia - all those items are amazing! :)


  17. Obsessed with that gold satchel! I need to get my hands on one! lol



Thank you for your comments, they make my day!!
