There were probably 40 women clogging the check out area, arms loaded, most of whom I recognized from school, grocery store, soccer games....the mom stuff of life, a few men (with piles of the zig-zaggy stuff in their carts, probably to sell at the local swap meet or ebay) And all of the shelves were bare.
Save for a lone pair of kid's leggings hanging haphazardly on a swim suit display. So, I can't report on its quality or if this designer line for Target hit it (as opposed to the sad, past, attempts via Calypso and Liberty of London- who knew these could be made to look ugly?)
But I will say this, seeing all of those women, hording the same stuff...the zig zag sweater coat, the zig zag flats, boots, pumps etc. made me realize that, I do not want any of this. It's officially, the new 'Momauflage' of my, already, very homogenized town. (which, hey, if that's your thing, more power to you. It's just not mine )
I happily walked away, empty handed (not that I really had any choice)
Also, it made me really glad that I didn't blow my wad on a $400.00 Missoni bikini while in Venice, Italy a few years back ( Can you imagine, 'Oh, did you get that at Target?" "Um. NO. I bought it in Venice. On my HONEYMOON" )
Here's what I didn't see in person, but looks to be cute from the line:
|ipod holder. pretty, simple. like it.|
|zingy bike. Although, the wheels don't look fat enough to work on the beach. But around town, it's charming.|
|now, this is cute. I'd buy it.|
ok. So there's that. Now, I have another question. I'm in the market for a new toaster. ( Rull, rull important stuff ) Here's the one I want:
The Dualit. Isn't it pretty? It's also almost as much as that Missoni for Missoni swimsuit I didn't buy in Italy. Probably a better investment, considering that I'll be toasting bread a lot longer than I'll be hanging out in a 2 piece - 'hanging out' being the operative word. Has anyone purchased the Dualit? Do you like it? Is a toaster, a toaster a toaster....except if it is to be-zigzagged for Target? Your input would be swell.
