What’s In Store – Target’s Universal Thread Collection {why everyone’s loving it!}

Earlier this month, Target, my beloved bullseye boutique debuted a new collection and it’s kind of a big deal. I mean, who doesn’t love Target?! But this line in particular was a really exciting venture because per usual, it’s affordable, but more importantly, every garment in the collection goes up to a size 26 {versus just some items being plus}. Also, there’s a heavy focus on denim, which is an item most women find difficult to shop for {check out Fitting Room Tips to Find the Best Jeans…after you’re done reading this!}.
Of course it was my civic fashion duty to check out the Universal Thread line in person, try on pieces and report back the absolute pros and a few cons. Here’s another What’s In Store.

How to Shop Discount Stores Like Lot-Less

Yup, that title says it all. I’ve ditched Target. Well, not really. I could never do that. But I recently became obsessed with a discount store that’s new to me.

Lot-Less is my latest guilty pleasure and I feel foolish that I’m just getting hip to her. If you’re seeking discounts on everything from food to home decor to clothing, then you need this store in your life.

I’m a skinny jean lover, so I was a bit surprised when bootcut jeans started to trend. But, I’m here for them! They’re actually a nice departure from the skinnies. And last month I found a perfect pair.

Like most women, I kinda hate shopping for jeans. My dilemma is they’re too long and/or I have gaping at the waist. But whether you’re a size 2 or 20, it just seems difficult to find the one.

But these Denizen bootcut jeans from Target fit perfectly. No tailoring needed and less than $30!

Though I’m a thrift shopping pro, I love a good cheap chic deal at major department stores as well. But I hate how contrived many of the displays and “sales” are intended to make you spend more. Seriously, there’s a psychology behind the music they play, the non-existence of clocks and more. It’s so easy to get caught up and overspent {hence why I posted this on Instagram today}!
