Last week, fellow fashion blogger Melissa Menzies, of YummoMummo and I hit our local Target by storm – seriously, we were crazy. I’m sure we confused some of the employees at 9AM Thursday – but, we were determined to deliver some fabulous deals for our readers. We wanted to show, how for very little spend, you can easily update your wardrobe for fall! Here we are grabbing a latte, at the Starbucks Target, gearing up for some real life power shopping!
Our goal, was to bring you fabulous, on-trend items, at great prices. Melissa’s items are live on www.YummoMummo.com, so be sure to pop over to her website to see the rest of our picks, you won’t want to miss ’em!
Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, than a hand picked fashion blogger list, this week, Target is running their BOGO promo on women clothing, accessories and shoes. Buy one, get the second item 50% off, whohoo!!
Melissa and I personally tried on, and inspected everything on our list – here’s a look at our faves!
LOOK FABULOUS FOR LESS, TARGET STYLE!
Our first stop, handbags and accessories. We both flipped out over this Merona REVERSIBLE tote bag, for $36.99
You ask, does it truly reverse?
We wondered the same – here’s Melissa testing it out, and Ladies, yes it does!
available in 15 colors, here’s my top 4 picks:
Top left clockwise: red/burgundy | check/yellow | black/brown | pewter/grey
I love tying a scarf onto my bag, not only for a pop of color – I find it comes in handy, for those cool fall mornings and afternoons.
My 2 scarf picks:
Left: Merona GEOMET BERMAR scarf $14.99 (in photo at top of post)
Right: Merona cheetah print scarf – gray combo $14.99
With this weeks promo, you could own both scarves for under $25.00!
Target has collaborated with Aldo, for the A+ by Aldo line. We found great looking bags and boots by Aldo, new to Target.
Clockwise from top left: Aldo cross body | Aldo hobo | Mossimo fringe bag (feels like suede!) Find more bags over on YummoMummo!
A+ by Aldo from top left clockwise: ‘Eagen’ bootie (burgundy) $44.99 | small cross body (black) $34.99 | ‘Isa’ bootie $44.99 | large cross body (cognac) $39.99
A look at ‘Eagen’ on. Ran true to size, and for me, were comfortable.
I also liked this Merona boot, $34.99. True to size.
Sam and Libby Cheetah pump, more colors available on line. The black stripe up the back is a fun detail! True to size.
Pop over to YummoMummo for details on these fun Mossimo slip-ons, along with other fab shoes, $24.99.
Knotted belts are big for fall, over ponchos, wraps and cardigans. The trick is getting the knot to lay correctly. This clever number, at $16.99, does the work for you – it came home with me!
Next up, ready to wear!
Our local Target was in full 70’s swing,
Yep, I found the frayed bottom flare for you all, for $29.99!
Fit was true to size, you’ll see it on, in my dressing room reviews, below.
Here I am, going in!
First up, cape/poncho whatever you want to call ’em, sweaters:
Yes, that is the Aldo ‘Eagen’ bootie with the Mossimo flare jean.
Also new at Target, the Fashion Union label. Both of the sweaters above are by Fashion Union. We decided this is a higher end brand for Target, as the quality is a bit better and the price, slightly higher.
All from Fashion Union, top left clockwise; printed poncho (black) $39.99 | aztec poncho (red) | military draped jacket (green) $49.99 | fur vest (black) $44.99
A little fur,
Price difference between the two is $10.00. The quality on the Fashion Union vest (black) is a bit better. The blush pink Mossimo vest was a really unique color – I love it paired with burgundy tones, olive green and cognac brown.
This high low print blouse is a steal, at $24.99. It’s a bit longer in the back which I like.
5 Key Pieces:
For basics, I liked this ribbed layer tee. It’s thin, but that’s what makes it a good piece to layer. I liked the longer length and open neckline.
The long and lean tank is another great layer piece at $9.00.
Last up, I thought this drop waist space-dye dress by Merona, at $24.99, was a great fall-transisition piece. Wear now with booties, and later with boots and tights.
Well, that’s a wrap! Be sure to pop over to YummoMummo for the rest of our fabulous target finds!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
Great post Suzanne! I have gotten several new fall items from the plus size line Ava & Viv at Target. Colorful skirts and tops as well as a great selection of pants. I can get away with a few of the straight sized items and have looked at that blush fur vest. I am usually pretty adventurous with my clothing, but I am not sure if this might be pushing it for me. I really need to just try it on! So cool that you went shopping with a fellow blogger. I love it when I get to collaborate with my blogger friends.
Designing From My Closet
Hi Janeane! Great seeing you here! I love your blog and Insta feed! I saw the new Ava & Viv line, it looks great – nice to hear from someone who has tried it out. Exciting to see that Target is branching out with some new direction and looks. That vest is one that you for sure have to try on, and have somewhere to wear it to. Great for you though for giving it a go, loved your dressing room pic! Melissa and I always have a great time shopping, we are lucky to live close to each other here. I look forward to more of your posts! XO
I am so impressed with your knack for identifying fun fall additions at fab prices. The Chita scarf for 14 is a must have. Please put together an app for mobile phones so that me and my friends can learn about these things when we are out on our shopping trips each week..and this way we can alert you to finds of our own…
Hi Marlene! Thank you for stopping by and I am happy to hear you enjoyed the post! I love finding deals and throwing out great finds to my readers so they too can get a great look for way less! I love the cheetah scarf – it would add a pop to just about anything. I have a similar look already in my closet, otherwise that one would have come home with me! I did buy the Mossimo floral blouse in the creme/black combo which I will be showing how I wore it, this week – different ways, this weekend on the blog! I love the idea of an app. I have been asked to work on that from quite a few other readers – I’ll keep it on my list 🙂 Suzanne

there you have proof and evidence that big style like that faux fur blush festival vest does not have to have a big price tag! It would add fun to any outfit…dress up or down..This has been your best blog post yet, in my opinion….those bell bottoms alone are worth a trip to Target…any overalls in sight? my rule of thumb is caution around prints when shopping at Target…
I love that vest – you are right, the perfect festival piece! And the frayed bell bottoms are a steal right now, there is also a cropped version. Overalls, yes I did see a pair. They keep them in their “fashion” section, not the denim area. Old navy has some really cute overall as well at a great price. Yes, prints beware, but I did buy the creme/black floral blouse and have already worn it twice since! Thanks for dropping a comment! XO
