Target: A College Fashionista's Heaven on Earth

  • Feb 19, 2010
  • by

Target is often overlooked by the seriously fashionable shopper. 

The seriously fashionable shopper should look again though. 

To put it simply, Target is a magical place.  Not only can you pick up your everyday needs like paper towel, face wash, and notebooks, but you can also restock your wardrobe and be undeniably hip.  Never have I walked into Target and not been able to find an article of clothing that I want in my wardrobe.  This sounds terribly dangerous, especially for a college student with a miniscule budget, but Target’s prices are so low that keeping up with the latest trends won’t have you taking out yet another student loan.  High end designers are catching onto the power that Target contains too.  Isaac Mizrahi carried a line of clothing there for several years, and now designers like Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, and most recently, Jean Paul Gaultier, just to name a few, are creating lines that are temporarily sold in stores across the country. 

The highest fashion for the lowest prices?  Yes, please, my lovely Target.

Has anyone seen the Jean Paul collection at Target??Not loving it--but I am loving the Zac Posen preview coming this spring!
March 17, 2010
It is a little dissapointing, but I still managed to find a really cute top from his collection over the weekend! Zac Posen's line looks pretty cute! I really am liking the red dress with the crazy ruffles on the bottom.

Hands down you cannot beat what Target has to offer. Fun read.

Am I embarrassed to admit that the debut dates for both Posen for Target AND Gaultier for Target are on my personal calendar? HECK NO! ;)

Have you seen the previews for those lines yet? What do you think? I think I just got a great idea for a new review...hmm...
February 23, 2010
You shouldn't be embarrassed! They're in my calendar too! I've seen previews for Gaultier's line- it looks totally fabulous- but not for Posen yet. I can't wait!

Target IS magical. I affectionately refer to it as 'The $100 Store'. :)

In love with Target- I still am obsessing over my Rodarte pieces that I purchased. Thanks for the review!
February 19, 2010
YES, agreed!  Target is actually #5 on my list of Favorite Stores to Shop At :)  Did you pick up any of the latest Rodarte?  I absolutely love their halter dresses!  Great review, Sammy :)
February 21, 2010
Thanks! I did pick up a beautiful light blue dress from the Rodarte line. I'm in love with it!
February 23, 2010
Awesome! After reading your review, I was reminded of those halter dresses, so I went to Target right afterward to pick up a black one and guess what -- they were on clearance for $11 each, so I ended up picking up the cherry blossom one, too! :D By the way, did you notice that this review was featured in this week's notable reviews newsletter? Congrats! :)
February 23, 2010
Great find! And yes, I did notice! I'm really excited. :) Thanks!

There are plenty of department stores in the area I call home (Lake Charles, LA).  The bulk of them are Wal-Mart stores with one K-Mart and Target in the bunch.  Of all of these stores, Target is tops.      Why?  For the simple fact that Target beats both Wal-Mart and K-Mart in almost all areas.  The most obvious area that they beat the competition in is cleanliness.  The local K-Mart is trashy, with many of the products for sale apparently just …

Let's start with cleanliness:   Target is alway's immaculately clean and orderly. I'm sure that they've had a spill at some point in time, but I can't recall every having seen one. Which simply means that they have employees and managers who care about the store's appearance. Plus, their merchandise is always accessible and orderly. You know when retailers have so much crap that they literally pile it on the racks? I'm talking three different shirts clinging …

Converse's clothes are the perfect balance btwn casual urbanity & budget savoir-faire; I rarely run into a style that isn't worth my money.
Quick Tip by . March 11, 2010
I just love Target. It's dangerous when I go in there after pay day.
review by . December 09, 2008
It's a sad but true fact that if we suddenly found ourselves inhabiting a post-apocalyptic world, I would have serious trouble existing without Target.  Even having one outside of easy reach has proved difficult for me.  When I realized that the nearest Target here in New York was a 40-minute bus ride away, I heaved a deep inward groan that probably caused aftershocks in Los Angeles.    What is it about this place, anyway?  It's like the upscale cousin of Wal-Mart, …

Store Front
The one-stop-shop.  To me, Target seems like an online mall that you can actually visit in person.  Sounds completely illogical since real-life shopping was invented long before the internet, but when you grow accustomed to seeing e-commerce in your face now-days, you begin to appreciate the brick and mortar stores that still exist.    I like Target because it's on the list of places I go through in my mind if I think I might need something.  "Let's see, there's …
Quick Tip by . October 16, 2009
I tried to return an item to Tar-Jay WITH a receipt & they would only permit an exchange for an item in the same department. Basterds.
review by . March 05, 2009
Me and the wife love shopping at Target once every couple of months.  We find great deals on clothes, DVDs, home furnishings, kitchen and bath accessories, etc.    We do spend once a month - or every other month - at Wal-Mart for many of the same items, as well as groceries.... but we find Target to be much cleaner and better-organized.  Maybe this is a local issue but we prefer Target.  Unfortunately our Target does not have as much in terms of grocery items, …

When I use to come home from college to my parents house in the Bay Area... me and my best friend would think of things to do ... and going to Target was ALWAYS something we had to cross off the list... even when we have nothing to buy. And that is one reason why I hate this store.. if I ever step foot in Target.. it's like signing away at least $20 of your life. On what? I have no idea?    For some reason once I step into Target, I suddenly need to look at the ridiculous cute …
review by . December 13, 2008
For some reason Target inspires fanatical devotion amongst people. I am one of those people. And yet I still have a hard time understanding why I can't get enough of it. Let me preface this by saying that I do not like WalMart and I despise (yes despise) K-Mart. But Target is different. No really!     I find myself going to Target for no reason what so ever except for the fact that I haven't been there in a while. There is comfort I find in wandering the aisles of Target, as …

About this topic


Target Corporation is an American retail company found in 1902 in Minnesota.  Target is the fifth largest retailer in the United States and competes against other similar retailers such as Wal-Mart and Kmart.  

Target was originally named Dayton's until the first "Target" store was opened in Roseville, Minnesota in 1962.  In 1968, Target adopted the new bullseye logo (the current Target logo, as opposed to the original which was the red bullseye with Target in italicize in front of it).

In the 1980's Target began expanding to the west coat and opened it's first SuperTargt hypermarket in 1995 in Omaha, Nebraska.  

Most Target stores currently carry everyday household products, clothing, an a limited variety of groceries.  Many stores also carry seasonal merchandise such as patio furniture and Christmas trinkets.  In recent years, Targets have also began to include "food courts" with Taco Bells, Pizza Huts and Starbucks located within the retail store.  

Target Greatlands are stores larger in size than most Targets, and carry more merchandise and food products.  

SuperTargets, however, carry everything Greatlands do, in addition to housing delis, bakeries and meat departments.  

Target aims to attract younger, more educated and an more affluent crowd than many of its competitors.  Most shoppers have completed college and earn a median income of $63,000.  Instead of just being a discount store, Target has aimed to be a "discount department store," ensuring that merchandise is of ...
