#TomsforTarget is here: In-Store pictures + Review

Love this journal!

The much awaited #TomsforTarget holiday collection is here – if like me you’re a collab addict, you must be curious to know if the collection is worth checking out?

Firstly, the TOMS collection of footwear is priced $10 lower at $48 than the average pair of TOMS you would get elsewhere. Secondly the collection of scarves and accessories priced between $30-$20 is really chic and if you love clean lines and sustainability, this should be on your gotta love must have list.

My store did not carry the ponchos, but most other stores still have them. I admit I wasn’t blown away by this line, but there were some pieces like the scarves and journals which are really high quality.

#PeterPilottoforTarget: Review + In Store Pictures

It’s officially spring when Target releases their much awaited designer collab to welcome the new year with a new designer. This year, British designer Peter Pilotto, known for his eclectic prints and splashy colors has collaborated with Target and the collection hit stores today.

This time, due to the extreme winter cold here in NYC I wasn’t able to make it to my local Target early in the morning. By the time I reached mid afternoon, the only piece I really wanted from this collection, the printed blazer  was sold out in my store. The other item on my lust list were the black check pants – these were available in my store, but the quality was kinda iffy. The pants are of a thin polyester fabric, unlined and felt flimsy when I tried them. However they run a tad large, like most of the collection. I also felt that the silhouette and shapes of this collection are not flattering on all shapes, so my advice is to definitely try the garment if possible in store to get an idea before ordering online.

At first glance, the clothes are a riot of colors and prints and that can be a little overwhelming – distinguishing pieces from each other and just finding your size in the chaos of Target is a challenge. As I was browsing, the shoppers kept coming in and grabbing multiple everything they could get their hands on. So my question is, are you planning to shop this collection or will you hope it hits clearance soon?

Check out the pictures from the rest of the collection here:

Shopping roundup! Fab, new layering finds from Target and JCPenney!

It’s officially almost cold now. Temperatures are falling and the urge to hit the mall on cold evenings is back with a vengeance. See what I found in Target and JCPenney on my weekend visit — some great layering pieces, cute animal motifs and even a camo dress!

My personal favorites? The Owl sweater from JCP, it’s a cashmere blend and so soft, very versatile too. I also love the red printed pants and the striped dress from Target, both have a really great fit. Affordable fashion pieces, that don’t break your budget and keep you on the forefront of the fashion trenches, that’s my mantra!
