The Shops by Target

I know I am not alone when I say that a normal trip to Target to "pick up a few things" normally takes at least an hour and $100 minimum!  I like to start with a stop at the Target Starbucks to fuel my shopping.  I then go straight for women's clothing, sometimes accessories, then mandatory stop at PJ's, workout wear, books and home goods.  Finally, I may or may not remember (with a cart full of treasures) what I actually needed to stop for...

The Shops by Target is out in stores now, featuring several boutique stores including The Webster which is what I was most excited for.  Unfortunately, my excitement vanished after seeing the pieces in person.  Even though the collection is very affordable, the fabrics felt cheap and flimsy.  I'm not completely dismissing everything, some tops and dresses were better than others, just proceed with caution.  I know what you're thinking, what do you expect from a dress under $40, however, I've been so impressed by other Target lines that my bar is now set very high.

Sleeveless Jersey Dress, $29.99
Love this dress!  Material was way too thin for me though.

Sheath Dress Deco Print, $39.99

Embroidered Tunic, $29.99
I really like this tunic.  The material was very soft and light.  It just did not flatter my body.  If you do buy, I recommend sizing down.

Navy & Melon Deco Tunic
This is availale online only.  Probably my favorite piece...wish I could see it in stores!

  1. I got the shift and tunic online the other day.the tunic has pockets that made it bulky. I ended up just keeping the 2 pairs of Webster flats. I hope they I more shops!
