So Your Saying I Should Shop At Target? For Clothes?

So my fashion life revolves around 3 things…A- Finding and buying basic, timeless pieces in black. 2- Finding and buying unique, chunky and at times masculine accessories and D-Finding and buying the highest and in my opinion, sickest, vegan heels I can locate on this fine planet.

Trust Me, I Am As Surprised As You Are.

I shop in someway, everyday of my life. I do not necessarily buy stuff everyday, I just am constantly looking for the things I need. The timeless things, the things that are unique to myself and things I just know I cannot do without. Once I find a basic I need, that fits, I buy at least 2 in black and then look for one in white or gray. Maybe a bright pink or something if it is the season for that.

Since I do shop so much I try on lots of stuff in every single price range and let me tell you that just because a basic tank dress is $200 does not mean $hit. For Real. It makes me so pissed to cuz lots of the time I will order it on-line, get it, be like ‘WTF, $200 for this cheap material, ill-fitting piece of garbage?’ Thanks but no thanks. So I return it. Then I will be somewhere like say, Target, stocking up on body lotion and toothpaste and I will skip through the woman’s clothing section. And I find what I am looking for. Time and time again.

I have now realized this is not coincidence. I found my long black tank dresses there and bought 3 for $20 each, this was after I tried on Alexander Wang ones that were over $200. I found my black baggy off the shoulder T-Shirt there and bought 3 on sale for $11 each. This is after I paid $50 for one at Express and never wear it cuz the Target ones fit better. Yesterday I went to get body lotion and boom, I find the perfect short, tight tank dress for $20 and buy 3, after I spent over $200 on a Citizens Of Humanity one I have never worn even though I bought it last year. Full price.

Last week while I was in ‘color for wardrobe planning’, my teacher was talking about fit and quality of clothing and she was talking about good quality clothing at a low price point. She brought up Target right away. Her exact words were ‘Every time I walk into Target I am blown away, Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you cannot get quality clothes at a low price point at Target.’ I had to chuckle cuz I was wearing my baggy black off the shoulder T-Shirt from Target that class. My next class I ended up getting called out for my outfit, my teacher loved it. It was the long black tank dress I got from Target accessorized to the tilt.

So the moral of this rant is… If shopping at Target is not only good enough for, but recommended by the teachers at the Fashion Institute of Technology (aka the infamous F.I.T. in Manhattan) then maybe you should take a look ;)


Big Up To South Korea.

Fendi Needs To Stop Using Fur. Those Days Are Over. Let Them Go. Please.

Animal rights activists in South Korea have WON their battle against fur on the runway this season. Fashion power house Fendi was told last week that they must remove all garments that feature fur from their Fall/Winter show in Seoul 🙂 The local government stated that they have received many complaints from people about fur in fashion and they do not feel it would be right to allow designers to use fur in a public place when the public itself is so clearly against it.

Fendi claims to be mystified as to why they cannot use fur during this show in South Korea. Um, maybe because it’s nasty?
