After finding the perfect curtain fabric, I was just flipping through Target today and look what I found. I love this bedspread! All those pieces are less than $100 and I’m assuming it’s rather thin but that’s okay, since I’m in Georgia and this is strictly for looks. They don’t have it in the store and I’m worried because you never can tell with Target. Sometimes it’s amazing, but it could go rather cheap looking, I’ll just have to see. Usually cheap works fine on a simple design like this.
I might not use the shams, I hate matchy-matchy, though I will check to see if the leaf print is on the reverse side. If it is, I’ll turn them inside out and use them that way.
it’s hotter than the hinges of Hell and I only want to wear dusters. Goes without saying, they’re not work appropriate. I’ve mentioned before that Target has totally bitten off Free People at like a quarter of the price, but they need better photographers. This top looks so much better in person. It is see-through (eyelet!) but a light came works. I ordered off the site as larger sizes disappear from my store at the speed of light. I love that the lace goes all the way around. It looks like a $100 top for only $27.99.
My swimsuits arrived last week and I finally got a chance to try them on. I was definitely not disappointed. At this price point ($27 a piece!!!) I expected lightweight flimsy fabric and poor craftsmanship. Nothing is further from the truth. Don’t get me wrong, you’re not going to find the heavyweight Miracle suit material for this price, but for me that’s okay. I basically spend most of my time at the pool running after the kids. Mainly I’m concerned about coverage and not looking like and old woman and these are more than up to the job. I sized up from my usual 16 to an 18, and that was fine for everything except the pink top. I should’ve remembered that I’m short waisted, so that made the top too long for me. I’ll probably send it back and get a smaller size or a different style. I love both bottoms, but the purple stripe is particularly awesome because it’s so high waisted and has the ruching on the side. Really comfortable and great for ye ole muffin top. I love the purple top as well for the same reason. I was worried that it would be too clingy and show too much, but the ruching on the sides does a great job. The polka dot bottoms are absolutely adorbs. They look so flirty and fun peeking out from under the ruffled top. I’m totally annoyed that they don’t carry these suits in the stores, I mean you have to practically go on an excavation to find them on the freaking site! Target is many things, but their website is absolutely appalling.
Indeed, my only complaint is: CARRY THE DAMNED THINGS IN THE STORE!!!
I’ve been looking for a cute plus size tankini for a while now. Most tankinis ride up exposing the midriff, and I need two pieces because usually I have Kell in the bathroom at the pool and getting totally undressed to pee is so not on. Anyway, I found these on the Target website. (They don’t have them in the stores, and yes, this pisses me the hell off, but whatever.) Cute colors and prints, pinks, purples and a lovely mint. Not that horrible tropical print that they always put on plus size suits. I got this one, with a polka dot bottom. Cute and flirty. The prices are to die for too. I was able to get a couple to mix and match. I have a red card so shipping is free. Mine hasn’t arrived yet, so I’m not sure about fit, and at this price I assume they’re probably pretty flimsy, but the only other place I found this top with the ruffles all around the back too was at Land’s End and it was $75! And the plus size only came in two colors (black and dark purple grrr!) with no cute print bottoms to match. I found a similar top at Macy’s, but the ruffles don’t go all the way around. I don’t know about you, but I have back fat too!
