A Target Do and a Target Disaster12.16.09
Most people go to Target to pick up Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste, Avalon Organics Vitamin C Cleansing Gel and Pup-eronis. (Well, I do. And, the Pup-eronis are for my dog, not me, but I digress–this is a fashion blog, not a “Random Things I Picked up at Target” blog.) However, Target’s amazing diffusion lines (like Rodarte’s, debuting Dec. 20th) and soon Zac Posen’s line (debuting nationwide April 25th–eons away!) draw the fashionable (i.e., moi) to check out what other sartorial wares they hawk at any given time.
Target’s Converse One Star line consistently surprises by coming up with high quality basics that make you feel like the coolest chick in school. I found a sweet heather lavender tissue-thin oversized tee that is on par with a James Perse or Adam tee. (Note: buy in XL for drapey feel.) I plan on wearing it with liquid leggings, a cropped blazer and Jeffrey Campbell multi-strap platforms.
Compare to the James Perse tee below. Not a huge difference in quality or style, but a quite a bit in price.
Target is a must for any fashionista (self-styled or otherwise) who implements the high-low strategy in her wardrobe. (And by high-low, I mean mixing designer and discount, not Adderall and Xanax, hehe.)
On a more somber note, I did see a monstrosity at Target that seared my eyeballs and that no sane woman would even entertain bringing into her home, let alone wearing. The visual merchandisers at Target somehow decided to proudly display the following Nick and Nora fuzzy-wuzzy onesie FOR GROWN WOMEN.
Really?! Would you like to guarantee a sexless future? Then please wear these. I think I’ll stick to my semi-sheer Converse tee.

I would wear these w/o a second thought. HELLS YES! GIMMIE!
Every guy I’ve asked said they think their gf would look cute in onesie pjs.. I have a pair I bought last year and definitely don’t have a sexless future
It’s about the confidence when you drag them out.

Honestly, I’m quite the serious girl, but I’d wear those, so lighten up!

…..awesome post. I love the lower end items that have the “look”. =)
Keep posting stuff like this. I really like it.
from a male point of view, these maybe not be the sexy pj women are expected to wear, but if my wife wore those onesie bunny pj, i’d want to do it like a bunny all night
