Old Target Clothing

 This is me having fun with my daughter in Toy R Us.  Sometimes we find goofy stuff and snap pictures for my Blog.  Hello Kitty is one big goofy character, but she is so cute you can't dislike her.


   
 I want Target to bring pretty back.  This top is by Merona and was part of a collection that they did around 2008?  I wish I could find a better archive online to get the exact date.  This is one of the reasons I try to date my outfits, as a kind of archive library of sorts.
 The collection was very heavy on floral prints that were reminiscent of the 50's.  This sleeveless top I'm wearing has a zipper in the back, giving it more of a vintage feel.         
 There is a cute flock of Owls at Marshalls that can be used indoors or as outdoor garden art.  I like the vintage looking greenish brown one on the left.  Luckily no owls were knocked down and harmed in the picture taking process.

 One thing I have noticed about Marshalls, is that they are top heavy.  There are many shirts, tees, tanks and blouses with a little sprinkling of dresses, jeans, housewares, shoes and a smidgen of skirts.
So I think of it as, basically a shirt store.         
One cute, very preppy shirt that I found was a group of gingham Ralph Lauren button downs.  The color of this aqua check is more vibrant in real life and there was also a hot pink one.  I resisted the urge to buy one since I have, like Marshalls, more than enough tops.  

Shirt:  Old Target Merona.
Jeans:  Liz Claiborne Jackie jean by Isaac Mizrahi, purchased at Ross.  Isaac Mizrahi designed for Liz Claiborne for only one year in 2009.
Cardigan:  J.Crew Factory grey cardigan.  The Clare, very similar to the J.Crew Jackie. 
Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for QVC.  Pink flats.

    1. I didn't buy the bag but it's really cute. It seemed more like a good sleep over party bag instead of a true handbag. I forgot about her birthday and you should do a post on the topic. Maybe I should pull some stuff together for a photo; like our pop corn maker and my daughter's radio and water dispenser. Again, kind of an archive of sorts in honor of the anniversary.
      Toys R Us has so much Hello Kitty stuff. You should check it out.
      Have a nice evening,

  2. My gosh, what a stunning top! Hard to believe it's Target! I'm loving the idea of an archive of outfits, as I am an archivist myself :)

    1. I love it when we can find inexpensive items that look better than they are. I remember wearing this top when I went into a Marc Jacobs store in Las Vegas a few years back and I got a big compliment from the saleslady. It felt good to tell her that it was from Target.
      I look forward to seeing your archivist posts in the future!
      Have a great day,

    1. Thank you Jessica. This is a great print that Target did. I may have to check out Ebay to find some other pieces in this print. I think I recently saw a dress with a ruffle, but the ruffle part did not excite me. But it could look cute on someone else.
      Toys R Us is Hello Kitty central if you are looking for some items.
      Thanks for stopping by,

  4. Love that printed top and the pink pants. So feminine, chic, and, as you said, 1950's! I have a soft spot for Hello Kitty, too. Actually, I think she's grown on me as I've gotten older. She's sweet and kitschy and fun. And I love that you took your outfit photo in the pink aisle. It's the perfect backdrop!

    1. Thank you for the sweet compliment. Even though pink is my favorite color, I did not plan on having my picture taken in the pink aisle at Toys R Us that day. I just spotted that bag and found it to be so funny and cute. So I appreciate that you noticed the pink aisle. I have started to look for new and different backdrops lately which makes blogging more fun.
      Have a great day,
      Stacey
