#Problematic: Menstruation Is On Trend, Robin Thicke Returns & Target Nixes Gendered Toy Aisles

Hello, Dollies. I thought I would greet you how my mother usually greets me. Her pet name for me is Dolly, because she very much wanted to name me after Dolly Parton and was shot down by my father. See, this is a safe space—I’m sharing! What were your childhood pet names? Do your parent…

Frisky Rant: The Problem With Target’s Plus-Size Lilly Pulitzer Collaboration

When Target announced that its latest collaboration would be with Lilly Pulitzer, the godmother of American resortwear and technicolor prints, reactions were mixed. Her fan base — crazy, evangelistic, largely white — was less than pleased, worried that their precious brand would be sullied by the unwashed masses plundering Target’s aisles in search of stretch…

Lilly Pulitzer & Target Are Collaborating!

Lilly Pulitzer is teaming up for a collaboration with Target! The collection will include 250 pieces ranging from $2 to $150 and will feature plus sizes, which some of Target’s past collaborations had left out. For a seemingly innocuous line of bright-colored dresses, Lilly is oddly powerful in its ability to polarize fashion lovers. The…

This Is Your Inner Monologue Every Time You Go To Target

I don’t know what’s in the air at Target, but it’s practically impossible to make a quick trip to that store. Walking inside is like stepping into a giant labyrinth, but instead of worrying you’ll never escape, you’re too busy being distracted by all those shiny clearance racks. How do we explain this phenomenon!? [22

Target’s Going To Have Free Shipping On Everything, So Now You Can Either Troll Them Or Just Never Leave Your Apartment For Holiday Shopping

For the next two months, you can get free shipping on everything from Target, if you hadn’t noticed already. Woohoo, Christmas in October! No, really, though, they’re doing it to bump their holiday sales.
So yeah, that 92-cent lip balm? Free shipping. A 97-cent pack of pens? Free shipping. If you really, really hate Target,…

The Altuzarra For Target Collection Is Kind Of Amazing

As I’ve said time and time again, Target’s designer collaborations are hit or miss. Prabal Gurung and Philip Lim? Loved. My Boom! sweatshirt is still inspiring catcallers. Kate Young? Nightmare. But if I may make a prediction, based on the just released lookbook, Target’s upcoming collection with Altuzarra (launching September 14) may just be a…

Kate Upton’s Zero Gravity Bikinis Are Floating To A Target Near You

I know, I know. The moment you saw Kate Upton’s zero gravity Sports Illustrated photo spread, you were like, Where can I get a teeny tiny gold bikini that would be appropriate to wear in space and kind of makes me look like a more vapid Barbarella? Wonder no more because Target has teamed u…

Style Stealer: Dree Hemingway Rocks Peter Pilotto For Target (And So Can You!)

If you haven’t heard of Dree Hemingway, you’ve certainly heard of her family … you know, mom Mariel and great-grandfather Ernest. But despite the Hollywood and literary genes, which she could outfit in nothing but highend designer threads 24/7, Dree still appreciates a bargain, wearing a crop top and skirt from Peter Pilotto’s collab with…

Dear Target, “Plus Size” And “Pregnant” Are Very Different Things

Not sure why a national clothing retailer thought no one would notice if they just popped a pregnant model into a “plus size” dress and called it a day, but people definitely noticed. I mean, come on. [ONTD]…

There’s An Unexpected Downside To Wearing Target x Phillip Lim’s BOOM Sweatshirt

Yesterday, I debuted my new Phillip Lim for Target sweatshirt in What Are We Wearing and on the streets of NYC. The pop art-inspired crewneck sweatshirt says BOOM in bright red letters on the front and I seriously dig it. But there’s one problem. Yesterday, no less than three men were inspired to integrate the word “boom&#8221…

He’s the latest to design a lower-priced line for Target — debuting September 15 —  and the lookbook just hit the web. The extensive line of men and women&#8217…

Target And Novo Nordisk Drop Paula Deen

As Paula Deen was dropped by seemingly every company she’s ever been associated with, Novo Nordisk continued to say it would stand by her—but even that relationship appears to have frayed. The diabetes drug maker that partnered with Deen as she announced she had the disease today announced it is suspending the relationship “for now.” A rep tells Eater there is the “option” to resume the partnershi…

Lookbook: Prabal Gurung For Target

Set your alarms for Sunday at midnight! The Prabal Gurung collection goes on sale then and it’s a doozy! Seriously, I was pretty much over these designer collaborations because they’d had, for the most part, gotten really cheap and crappy looking, like the designers were phoning it in since they knew the items would sell…

Black Friday Begins Earlier Every Year & Wal-Mart, Target Employees Are Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Black Friday is a uniquely American consumerist faux “holiday” that I will never understand. Do millions of people really want to endure screaming toddlers and hordes of teenagers at the mall just so they can buy an Old Navy fleece for 20 percent off? No, thanks.

But for the retail workers who have…

Sneak Peek: Target And Neiman Marcus’s Designer Holiday Collaboration

Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right? Whatever the logic behind their decision to collaborate, we have no complaints, even less so now that we’ve gotten to see each of the 55 items from the…
