On The Ground Retail With Style Statements And Cheerful Prep At Target
A brief aside. I suffered from the usual large store shell shock upon entrance, and spent some erratic moments flitting from Liberty print to Liberty print, like a moth drawn to polyester flowered flame. However, upon recovering from the visual intoxication, we found some cardigans. Argyle with a twist, in colors bright enough to flirt with disrespect for the hallowed Scottish pattern. Mostly cotton. Cute as the proverbial button. This one made its way home to my daughter's wardrobe.
these pants. While I gave them high marks for fit and fabric, I cannot wear capris without feeling like I've added 10 years to my already advanced age and subtracted 6 inches from my already not-long legs. But someone would like these very much. The jacket has nice, lined, rolled up cuffs, although it had been so recently removed from a packing crate that folding marks made fit difficult to assess.
And then, to my profound surprise, madras shorts. In Northern California. Will wonders never cease. I must tell Tickled Pink and Green, and Hopsy, the queens of prep fashion from Target.
Hipster/alternative gals were not left in deshabille. Paisley tank tops, $8.00. We took the orange one home for my daughter. It's fun to dress a redhead, after all my years in the blond camp.
Finally, Mr. Gaultier's wares were on display.
Still, it's fun to imagine that I might have put this on, when I was 25 and living in Manhattan. After our accounting final? Yes?
*I'd be interested to hear how any international Targets stack up, or what your equivalent outlets offer of similar price and quality.
