Does she have any idea what she's talking about? Doubtful, but she likes to think so!
If we humor her and let her talk about her latest Target finds, is she likely to stop talking about herself in the third person? Situation unclear; worth a try anyways.
So I sauntered into you-know-where yesterday to purchase a shower gift and came out with a gift - and the following two retro-inspired goodies. That it was only two is a testament to my overwhelming self-control . . . (credit all following horrendous shots* to the Target Merona Collection):
*Note to Target: arent' you a multi-squillion dollar business? Why the consistently awful photography?
"Belted Swirl Dress": because of the characteristically crap Target photography here, it's difficult to make out the flattering boatneck, patent belt detail, and the a-line skirt flare. And they lobotomized this model, not me. But trust me - OH MY BETTY DRAPER ADORABLE.
This also passed my Target Sniff Test; for those of us fortunate enough to live by a store - and I do mean "fortunate" - I believe you should check out the merchandise in person first vs. ordering online. There are certainly a few poorly made stinkers at Target, as at any discount chain, but this dress felt substantially made, had tidy seams, etc.
"Ottoman Trench": loved the retro-looking buttons and ivory piping, as well as the subtle texture of the coat material. Good lightweight spring trench - and note the dress peeking out underneath.
This line is full of discount cuteness, but here are two more in particular I intend to investigate in person:

"Large Tote with Brass Hardware": as I commented to Ms. Classy Chaos recently, I'm generally a believer in saving up for higher quality handbags more likely to thrive despite my daily abuse. However, sometimes a girl just needs an affordable bag. I've owned Target bags that have lasted me years with heavy use, so this might be a budget post-Easter spring/summer bag that sneaks into my lineup (after rigorous inspection, of course).
Happy weekend, dolls . . .
