The First Lady was spotted on a bit of a shopping spree at Target this week. I honestly did not realize she could just waltz into Tar-jay like any ol’ bargain-seeker; does the Secret Service have to do a sweep of the store first? Also, I wonder if she’s got any Missoni in those bags… [Buzzfeed]
Man, I love it when Ellen DeGeneres
plays prank Cyrano de Bergerac and has celebrities do something outrageous to unsuspecting bystanders while she counsels them on what to say via earpiece. In this clip, David Beckham
heads to Target undercover to peddle his new cologne. She has him spray it on his leg so a woman can smell it and then has him yell “Howdy partner!” as loud as possible. But the best part is how he keeps slightly misunderstanding her. “If you stink, come and buy cologne” is a great jingle, though. [Huffington Post

Thinking about buying something from Missoni’s extensive line for Target? Good luck with that. Thanks to the high volume of users trying to get their grubby mitts on the collection, Target’s site is currently offline. If you go to the site right now, you’ll receive a message that “We are hard at work making the site better.

Take a good look at this shoe. It is reminiscent of a number of different designer heels currently being featured in magazines and sold at expensive retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop. Amazingly, however, these stacked heeled sandals — which would look so cute with everything from skinny jeans to a floaty sundress — are from Target’s Mossimo brand and cost less than a hardcover book, a sushi dinner, and a date night at the movies. They are so cute and affordable that not buying them would be kind of silly. And you’re not silly are you? No. No you’re not. We’re not either. We’ll take one in each color.
