Today, we’re talking about bed sheets and pitting two similar products against each other to see which one is better. Target vs. IKEA. Who will win this battle?
Target’s new mid-century inspired housewares brand, Project 62, has items for your kitchen, bedroom, and bath. Here’s some of what I saw after the brand launched in stores.
Ever since I heard about Project 62, Target’s new mid-century modern-inspired line of housewares and furniture, I’ve been feeling a mix of anticipation — but also dread (because of what I fear it might do to my wallet). I love those clean mid-century modern lines, but the price tag of real deal vintage pieces is not in my budget (at least not here in California). Well, Target read my mind by creating decor inspired by the era.
Earlier this week, I shared my general impressions about Target’s new clothing lines: A New Day for women and Goodfellow & Co. for men. Now, for the fitting room review! For each item, I’m presenting the stock photo from the website next to my fitting room selfie, just for shits and giggles. For reference, the models are 5′ 9″ and I’m 5′ 3.” The models are also undoubtedly airbrushed and I am definitely not.
Target has grand plans to retire its veteran brands, which have gotten too broad, and replace them with new labels. Two new clothing brands rolled out recently. Say goodbye to Merona and Mossimo and hello to A New Day (women’s) and Goodfellow & Co (men’s). I went to check them out in person.
When I moved into a bigger apartment, one of the things I really, really wanted was a bar cart. The idea of wheeling something around to entertain guests — and offer them my partner’s whiskey collection — appealed to me, even if I wasn’t going to wheel it very far.
While I was shopping Victoria Beckham for Target, I noticed that Who What Wear had put out a lot of summery dresses, so I tried some of those on as well. Here’s a dressing room review showing you what these dresses look like on a real (and petite) person.
I tried on more Victoria Beckham for Target. Part 2 of my review. You know how in my first Victoria Beckham for Target review I said I was trying to be good and not buy anything from the collection unless I really, really loved it? That didn’t last very long.
A review of Victoria Beckham for Target, including sizing tips and fitting room photos. I’m trying to be stricter and not fall for the collab FOMO frenzy. In the early morning of April 9th, when Victoria Beckham’s Target line went live on the website, I calmly ordered just one dress in two sizes. (Shout out to the Target website folks. It all went smoothly this time.) I didn’t get to a brick-and-mortar Target store until the afternoon. But by that time, I’d already seen photos on social media of people with their #VBxTarget haul. It made me wish I had bought more to try on.
No green thumb? No problem. CB2 and Target has great-looking artificial plants. Oh, and a few planters for real plants too. I devoted a post a while back to planters from IKEA for your indoor greenery. But what if you don’t want to take care of plants, have a horrible track record with them, or are trying to spruce up a space that doesn’t get enough light? Luckily, there are very realistic looking fake plant options.
