Dressing casual and looking put together – is almost like an art. I am not totally sure I have mastered it yet… Some women just have that natural talent to throw an outfit together and look fabulous. I have put together some inspiration for those of us who need a little extra help….

Target Canada is here!!

21 Mar

Tonight I finally got the chance to check out the new target that has just hit Canada!! I loved the targets in the states, so I was really looking forward to finally having one in our home town. Now I did go with the expectation it would not be the same as the states version. I had heard mixed reviews, so I definitely went with an open mind. I think they are still in the beginning stages of the store, meaning more shipments and new merchandise will be coming – so I am excited to see the store progress over the next few months.

I thought they had great clothes, bathing suits, shoes, kid clothes, home decor, dog stuff and definitely great gift wrapping/stationary. My only real disappointment was with their holiday selection. I thought for sure they would have a huge Easter display or aisle,  but there was really nothing. I am hoping that is just because they opened to close to the holiday.

Here is a little glimpse into the store:

They had super cute bathing suits!! Royal blue was a prominent colour in the women’s section … which I am really loving right now!!

They also had a ton of neon & cute pastel skinnies, which you all probably know I love 🙂

They had tons of bright coloured scarves of all different patterns – mostly around the $16 range

Now on to the home decor….

I love these baskets below with the chalkboard tags

I really like this lamp with the clear base! And I love that you can buy the base and shades seperately.

Really love these stools, but thought they were a little overpriced @ $79 each

20130321-194119.jpg

They had really nice throw blankets ranging from $16 – $29

They had 2 really nice floor lamps that I loved. This one below with the chunky base, and a white one. I thought they were reasonably priced at $79 each.

I was happy to see that all the stationary/ gift wrapping was similar to the states with a wide range of products. I absolutely LOVE all the bright colours they are using!!!

I thought the prices for gift bags were great too! Some were as little as 50 cents!!

Now onto the shoes…. I was extremely happy with the selection of flats & sandals – but refrained from buying any yet as I just can’t justify it when there is still damn SNOW o the ground!!!

So what did I buy you ask??

I got some adorable baby clothes for an upcoming shower, snacks and food for my nephew and niece coming over this weekend and then a few treats for myself 🙂 I got two super cute maxi dresses for summer! Each $20
And I restrained myself from the shoes, but I will Definitely be going back… 🙂

Here are the dresses

Anyways, that is just my little review on the new Target Canada!! I was really happy with it, and super glad it is here! I realize it might not be the exact same as the states, but hey – it definitely beats walmart!!!!!!!!

Pinterest has recently got me addicted to the J CREW Bubble necklace, I am just obsessed. Now this piece of jewellery does not come cheap, it is $170 …. And since I am not much of a jewellery person, it really doesn’t seem worth it for me to pay that much. HOWEVER – Zulily had the exact same necklace (more like a replica) on sale for $14, so I got to buy 3 in all different colours – and I am super pumped! Now although they might not come back on Zulily, I know you can get them on etsy and J CREW factory online (clearance price).

Speaking of J CREW – I would also love a pair of these coloured vans…

Happy Sunday!!!

Lighter & Brighter Wardrobe….

24 Feb

I am in desperate need to spice up my wardrobe. My friend Lisa did an awesome post about what to buy for work wear which was a huge help for me – You can check it out here… http://lisa-lisaspieces.blogspot.com/. She talks about buying pieces that can transition from work wear to weekend attire.

I also need to add a little more colour into the mix – I have a little bit of an obsession with royal blue & emerald green right now. I have a love hate relationship with window shopping on the internet. It is good because then I can do my research before I buy…. But I hate it because I just want everything 😦 lol… dammit….

Here is a little fashion inspiration…

<<click the images for pricing & stores>>

Royal Blue Dress – Aritzia

Fushia Dress – J CREW

Navy Long Sleeve Dress – ASOS

Orange Sleeveless Top – Aritzia

Neon Pink Blazer – Aritzia

Ughhhhh…. Why can’t we all just win the lottery?
