Treasures All Around

I took a much needed trip to Target for the first time in almost two whole weeks. GASP. I know. It's terrible. I didn't walk through the automatic doors for any particular reason besides needing my Tar-jay fix. I was having major withdraws. I went straight to the shoes. Holy Christmas in January. The clearance section was on fire. Shoes to my left. Shoes to my right. All for a crazy bargain bonanza. I am not gonna lie. My heart started racing a little. I think that was from the withdraws.

Anyway, I picked up the emerald flats below for less than $8. The cap toes heels, they were less than $10. Plus, there was an entire wall full of sandals for crazy cheap! 

Then, a little blue peacoat was singing my name from across the aisle. I was immediately drawn to it's angelic voice. I looked at the price, tried it on and made it all mine for less than $20. It will be on the blog soon...like tomorrow. Stay tuned.

All of these glorious clearance racks got me thinking. Thinking that I needed to hop on online and see what other goodies Target had available on clearance. And these my friends, are some true treasures. Believe me when I say, I could have added a dozen others, but decided to keep it simple and present to you six stellar deals that are right on trend and so freaking cute!! You're welcome.

Please note: Some of the items found online are cheaper in the store. 

Target Treasures


Speaking of treasures, I have a real life treasure for you today. Her name is Jessica and she blogs over at Here & Now. How flawlessly gorg is this girl?

 

As we all know, looks can only take you so far. What I am trying to say, is Jessica goes way beyond being a hottie little tottie.

We have been blog buds since I first stepped into blogland. I actually won my very first giveaway from her blog, an amazing necklace from Bauble Bar that I have worn numerous times on this here blog.

And did you know that Miss Jessica was listed as the #1 up and coming fashion blogger on Bloglovin' a few weeks ago? I couldn't make this kind of stuff up. And girlfriend deserves every bit of the Bloglovin' fame.

She is a 30x30 Remix Challenge champion. She's conquered it not once, but twice. I am sorry, I had to post all of her pictures from her fall challenge. It was too wondrous to pass up.



Impressive, right? 

Well, that's not all. In my little opinion, Jessica killed the 30x30 Challenge because she shops like it's her job. No, not that she shops all the time; she knows how to shop. She swears by purchasing classic pieces that will take her past tomorrow. In case you're in need of some wardrobe staple ideas, look no further. Jessica's got you covered here. And how classic is this? J.Crew, watch your face, Jessica  just may have trumped you here.

 

Yes, this is a sponsor feature. Yes, Jessica sits beautifully on my side bar. But guess what? I read Jessica's blog like I read People Style Watch, with full attention while taking notes. I consider her a friend and a huge support system. She has some serious style, an adorable personality and a pug named Doug that will steal your heart. Go give them both some love will ya?

 

Did I mention that Jessica is a not only a "make ya want to hate her goregous", but she is also pretty spectacular with giving.  Wait for this. You are about to get crazy excited...

One reader is going to win a $50 gift card to J.Crew thanks to Jessica's giving spirit. Don't think I am not entering this one. 

On the count of three say "Thank you, Jessica."

1.....2.....3...."THANK YOU, JESSICA!!!!!!!"

The Nikon 1 in white. You know, the one Ashton has in all the annoying commercials? I really need a new camera to take pictures with for the blog instead of using my gosh darn iPhone all the time. Great giveaway prize! Glad to have met Jessica through you Shanna :)

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm always lusting over a million things at Target, but now I'm lusting over those cap toed heels you posted! Also, I recently bought a gray Converse cardigan there, and now I'm dying to get the other color. Love this! And thanks for the chance--crossing my fingers I win!

Audra said...

I was finally able to go to Target last night (it had been WAY too long) and I bought those flats in purple AND red. Such a bargain! It's the greatest store on Earth. I wish I had seen that sweater though.

The Pink Growl said...

I got the studded sweater too! Mine was on sale for like $9! I got the purple one with the gold studs...so cute!

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...

I lust over everything at Target!! Obviously :) However, if I had to narrow it down I would say their great tops!! Love me some Tar-jay!!

Great giveaway Jessica!!

Niki Caron said...

I haven't been to Target in a long time! I know - I am a weirdo! No seriously though, I've been on a spending freeze that I accidentally just lifted, so I will be going during my lunch break today :)

PS - Do you use photoshop for your layouts??? It looks so good!

Sara Smeby said...

I was All Business at Target yesterday. Straight to the office supply aisle and then straight out. Great self-control, but I feel like I snubbed a friend. Ought to go back today... Thanks for a great and fun post! I love following your blog (and now Jessica's)!

Warmly,
Sara

Rachel said...

I recently grabbed some online clearance items, including a fabulous navy dress and black skirt. I think it might be a good time to go back and hunt for some shoes, I love those emerald flats!

Tiff Ima said...

I'm pretty sure I jhust have Target lust in general, however, they have this sequined top from the Neiman Marcus collection I wanted. I still haven't purchased even though it is 70% off. Here I am thinking the deal will get better...

I went to Target the other day to get a present for a friend and made myself walk by the clothes and shoes. It was so dang hard! I can't believe you got those cap toe pumps for that much. I think a trip to Target is in my future again...

What haven't I been lusting from Target is the better question. I actually haven't been in awhile, and a trip back is definitely in order. The last time I was there I saw this polka dot blazer, but for some reason I didn't buy it. HMPH!

Thanks for the hook up to Jessica's blog; I think I'm going to love it. I'm also eager to try the 30x30 challenge .... right after I get a new maxi skirt. And organize my closet.

Tashia said...

I've been trying to stay out of the clothes/ accessories at Target, so I've been lusting over closet organizers. Cheesy, I know, but when you share 600 sq ft with your boyfriend and cat...

Mellissa Rondinelli said...

Awesome Target deals! I saw those shoes at mine - unfortunately not in my size boo hoo!!

meganm said...

The whole clearance section, it's amazing!

I have been lusting over the cap heels since november and I finally snatched up a pair yesterday! Hot pink! :)

Melanie said...

I immediately hate her because girl is gorgeous. I'm insanely jealous. I can't wait to read her blog-- this is actually a sponsored post blog that I'm going to check out. That never happens!

Helene said...

I adore how you introduced this girl. And can't wait to check her out!
And I went to target last night, so many great finds!!

Jenn D said...

Okay. Hold on a minute here- What are these Target sales you speak of?!
I was laughing at the beginning of this post because I did the same thing yesterday (wandered aimlessly into Target just because it's been too long). But now I'm a little appalled at myself for not walking over to the shoes. Really, Jenn? Why would you ignore the shoes?!

Looks like I'll be making a second trip.

Jenn

J and A said...

I am so jealous of your Target finds... I hope Target gets to Canada soon. My 1 trip a year does not cut it! :( They don't even ship here. :(

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

Shanna, this is dangerous for my wallet and my self-control. DO NOT SHOW ME THE TARGET CLEARANCE. What am I lusting over? Like, uh, everything at Target, as usual. I've tried on that leopard top in store TWICE, and now that it's on clearance I might just have to...keep resisting! Why are you doing this to me?!?!

Makaila said...

Okay, she is adorable, totally followed. ANDDDDD... I'm totally thinking about doing this 30 in 30 thing challenge!! What a great way to address the wardrobe crisis I'm currently having!

Anestazia said...

I definitely almost bought those emerald green shoes when I was at Target last weekend! I actually ended up putting them back because I decided to buy a set of shelves for my living room instead. Stupid budget! Hehe.

Great Target finds! Those emerald green jeweled flats are pretty! I always love to go to Target late at night during the hour before close... the store is usually nearly empty and it's so relaxing! :)

When you look great you really feel excellent! This is why more women and men have grown to be thinking about trend every day. Fantastic design means not merely using awesome styles, but also using them right, with assurance. Keep reading for several fantastic style ideas you could consider today.

To prevent your under garments or bra from showing through lighting-colored clothes, choose nude shades. Undergarments that directly looking glass your epidermis sculpt will be the the very least probably be apparent via white-colored or other paler-tinted blouses and jeans.[url=http://www.cheapuggukbootssale.co.uk]cheap ugg boots for women[/url] While it might seem obvious to stay away from dark undergarments, white-colored kinds can be just as apparent.

Have yourself skillfully equipped for a bra. An sickly-fitted brassiere is not only unflattering, but it really affects the way your clothes suits.[url=http://www.cheapuggukbootssale.co.uk]cheap uggs for sale[/url] When you know your true dimensions, buy a few bras in various variations and slices. A leap or demi-mug bra, a strapless bra, along with a convertible car bra offer you flexible choices.

Don't acquire garments that don't suit you, vowing to oneself that you'll "go into them". While it's an remarkable objective, it hardly ever works out doing this.[url=http://www.cheapuggukbootssale.co.uk]cheapest ugg boots uk[/url] Most girls by no means do "get into them", and merely wind up losing funds on sometimes costly clothing. Slim down initial go purchasing.

Ensure that you will not wear a jean best with jean bottoms. This is a trashy appear which will get you noticed inside the most awful methods.[url=http://www.cheapuggukbootssale.co.uk]cheap ugg boots sale uk[/url] Should you be looking to become the master or queen of design, it is important that you by no means organize denims using a jean best.

As stated from the release, experiencing great about you is not difficult once you appear the best. This means sporting excellent variations and also wearing them correct. This is much easier said than done. Use the things that you learned out of this report to wear your very best and put it on properly.[url=http://www.cheapuggukbootssale.co.uk]cheap uggs uk[/url]
