Spring Clothes: Digging the Bullseye

| 3 Comments
You know who has cute clothes this spring? Target. Yep, really. Wanna see?



Every single thing here is from Target! You could go with a sleek, sophisticated formal look:

Target Spring Outfit #3

Target Spring Outfit #9


Target Spring Outfit #2

Target Spring Outfit #2

Merona Tunnel Waist Floral Blouse, $19.99
Converse One Star Skinny Leg Annie Pants, $27.99
Merona Melinda Wedge, $14.98
Mossimo Hobo Bag, $29.99
Drop Cluster Earrings, $12.99
Suede Braid Bracelet, $6

Target's offerings really do rum the gamut. One thing I would advise anybody who doesn't typically consider Target an option for clothes to do is check out the online possibilities. A lot of things are available online that they don't have in store. For example, all of these pieces are online-only:

Target Online Only Clothes/Shoes

Mossimo Ponte Skinny Leg Pants, $22.99

Merona Crossover Neck Knit Dress, $17.48
Prabal Gurung for Target Long-Sleeved Cardigan, $32.99
Mossimo Ponte Peplum Skirt, $19.99
Merona Emilia Nautical Tall Wedge Sandals, $29.99
Merona Long Sleeved Sweater Jacket, $29.99

Now, a word about quality. A lot of folks will tell you not to buy clothes at places like Target because they are cheaply made and you can tell. Sometimes, that is absolutely true. Other times, the construction seems just fine to me. You really have to take it item-by-item. While it is true that you're not likely to be getting heirloom quality pieces at Target, the truth is that most of us aren't buying heirloom quality pieces anyway. Rightly or wrongly, we're a culture to whom clothes are pretty disposable, at both this price point and those several rungs above it. My best advice is always to buy clothes secondhand when possible, but when it's not, I see nothing wrong with trying to make as economical a choice as possible, and I think Target has really upped their game as far as creating pieces that are inexpensive, but don't look cheap.

I actually ordered a few things from Target for myself the other day, since I am down to a very very small section of clothes that fit in my closet (ah, the joys of post-partum dressing). I'll let you know how they work out!

I don't know what I'd have to spend to get something that would last as long as I want it to.

I don't see anything up there that I can or should wear, ever. Am I missing something?

What numbering system are we using for the outfits? This is 9? http://www.polyvore.com/target_spring_outfit/set?id=74261685
