So You Are Saying You Want Me To Shop At Target? For Clothes?

Home Of The Perfect Fashion Basics? Really? Trust Me I Am As Confused As You.

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.

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 😉

From Target.Com By Mossimo Supply Co. This Tank Dress Is On Sale For $16.00. *Best Fitting Tank Dress Ever*.

* I bought this exact dress and a black one about 3-4 months ago at Target for $20 each. I didn’t try them on because I don’t even know if Target has dressing rooms (?) and because I could return them if they did not fit. When I did try them on at home I was impressed. The way these dresses fit is amazing, they fall perfectly and hug the upper body perfectly. I went back and bought 2 more solid black ones because I know I will now not be able to be without them. Since then I have tried on 10 other brands of tank dresses in search of an ‘investment’ piece. Every dress was more expensive then the Mossimo one and every single one did not fit well. Some were simply cut awful, too boxy, too baggy. Others felt and looked cheaper then this one but were 4x as expensive. Thanks but no thanks. Since they are $16 on Target.Com I think I will grab a couple more. They are that good. Trust me.
