Target- Canuck style!

This week marked a bargain milestone in Ottawa's fashion community, the grand opening of Target! If you're an American reader, you're probably scratching your head and thinking huh? but it's true, the red bulls eye is just making its way up North and let me tell you, us Canucks are loving it!

What's even more exciting is that Billings Bridge Shopping Centre provided myself and fellow bloggers with the opportunity to tour the store the day before it opened to the public.  The following day we were treated to a lovely breakfast and given $50 to shop (which goes a long way at Target!) I ended up buying a delicate jewellery set and a fabulous red structured handbag for fall which I will showcase in an upcoming photoshoot.

Here's a look at some of my favourite Target treasures:
{I would love to add these ornamental elephants to my growing animal figurine collection.}

{Speaking of animals, I love these animal print bathroom accessories.}
{Neon sports bras, need I say more?}

{If I was still in University this would be my back to school ensemble of choice.}

{To infinity (scarf) and beyond!}


{The colours and prints on the Phillip Lim for Target collection are fab!}

{Leopard print, black and gold is a winning combination in my style books!} 
{One can never have too many statement necklaces!}

{Subtly patterned denim.}

I'm looking forward to returning to Target, most likely for Halloween candy, Christmas shopping, beauty products, outfit replenishing etc. etc.  You name it and Target has it!
 
Are you a Target addict?

  4. Target is a GREAT store -- wide selection, nice atmosphere, super prices. It's among my favorite places to shop. And, luckily, they just built a new one near my house. It even has groceries!

  6. You had me at that sparkly rack of statement necklaces! I'm waiting for the crowds to die down, then I look forward to checking it out!
    I really love the skirt you wore. The longer pencil style reminds me of the 40s, and it hugs your figure perfectly.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
