O to the M to the G

At work, I have a few nicknames. Most have been given to me by my gay, pushing 45-year-old, Cuban bff. To be quite honest, none of them make any sense. My bff is one of those laugh at his own jokes kinda guy. But I love him anyway. But I digress. My other office-wide nickname is the Queen of Target. And no, I'm so not joking. On a daily basis it is guaranteed that something I'm wearing from the retail chain. 

So good golly Miss Molly am I excited for the news I am about to type out here. Target is opening a chain of "bullseye bodegas" in New York City! How awesomely stellar is that?!? Apparently Target's numbers are down this year (sidenote: recessions are one of my irrational fears), so they are really pushing their diffusion lines. Translation: diffusion lines are those special lines done by hot designers like Botkier, Alice Temperley, and Jovovich-Hawk. Which means Target is going to be coming out with a lot of new lines for me to drool over. 

An apparel line by Jonathan Saunders, a new handbag line by Anya Hindmarch, and a shoe collection by Sigerson Morrison. What I'm really looking forward to? The new Richard Chai line. I love the bold colors for fall (dark purples and blues! woohoo!) and of course I love how Working Girl friendly the whole line is. 

Fellow NYC Working Girls, the bodegas will open in September in midtown, Union Square, Soho and the East Village.

How Awesome! I love target. I don't have alot of time to do laps around a mall searching for skirts, shoes, and bras from separate stores. Just walk across the aisle and there are the shoes!

I used to be a Victoria's Secret girl, but once my puppy started eating my bras, I tried Target's Gilligan O'Malley variety and I love them. And they are 40 dollars less expensive!!

Target is my favorite place in the world. I started loving it even more when they came out with the whole "designer lines for less" ideas.

You would hate to know this but I deprived of Target because of geography. Whenever I get close to one though, I tend to over due it because of my gross and obsessive love for the place. This is great news, but yet it makes me sad that I can't take the jaunt down there to check it all out...sniff enjoy and maybe with in a few months this Canadian will cross a boarder to experience the joy once again.

Aww I LOVE that fact that Target now features cool designers monthly as their new line. I bought some pieces from Rogan (Unbeliveable) and Richard Chai and they're all $14 - $40. I couldn't believe my eyes. They desinged for Target, but still adorable pieces. I was screaming!!! Botkier's bags were cute, too... Nothing great to buy good stuff for less$$

I'm so excited for this! I know where I will be going after work. I'm mildly obsessed with Target!

Holly Grande said...

I am way excited about this. I've been following Target's Go! International line for my job (http://whosinfashion.com, and I am looking forward to the line. My bank account is going to hate me this season.

Lauren said...

I LOVE the Target designer lines! I'm really excited for the next one as well.

I'm definitely a Target girl. I thought I was the only one wearing copious amounts of Target clothes to work! I'm so glad I'm not alone!

Carly said...

Ahhhh that makes me really excited about Target. I am there a lot since it's only about 2 miles from my house... I also realized that while loading my car a little while ago (back to college tomorrow), every bag was from Target. :-)

I think it's time to open a Target card... haha!

missBee said...

Go Target! I love that they bring the designers to us at a price we can actually feesibly afford!

I'm wearing a Target top today!
No shame in it either!

Twenty-Something said...

haha it is so creepy to read your blog we are so much a like! I used to only shop at high end places and drop way too much on my cloths but I have discovered a new obsession, TARGET! I am absolutely fascinated that I can get like 8 super cute outfits for the price of 1 at the places I used to shop, and the clothes are better!

I'm not a NYC WG, but this Colorado School-n-WG dons her Boutique Target duds with pride! Target rocks my socks :)

Be proud of your Target love!

I LOVE TARGET!!! I work in Midtown NYC, this is perfect. Thanks for writing about it!

My nickname at work is "greebies" - which is some kind of mutation of the word cooties. I think I would prefer Queen of Target!

I have been obsessed with Anya Hindmarch since I moved to London! I just got my first bag of hers for my (upcoming) birthday. Cannot believe she is designing for Target - I will totally have my mom make some purchases. Thanks for the heads-up!
