thakoon for target

I was finally able to get my mother and sister together for a trip to Beaverton to visit Target and see the Thakoon for Go International collection. As most people know, Target tends to be hit or miss, not just with the limited edition collections. All in all this trip was a major success, especially the Thakoon stuff.

As I mention in my previous post about the collection, I was super excited about the tie dyed t-shits. Well, I found the t-shirts and a great cardigan too.

As well as this striped top and this cute sun dress.

It is actually very hard justifying the purchase of a sun dress, but I reminded myself that I'll be back in Southern California at the end of the week, and I am a fan of wearing long sleeved t shirts under sundresses to make them seasonless.

My sister purchased a few things as well, including this sweater.

And this top.

And I can't remember what else.

Pretty much everything looked good in the collection, minus a few things. I find that coats and jackets are worth spending the money on, and a bold print in a knee length jacket is just hard to pull off, on anyone, no matter how tall you are.

A dilemma that we did discuss, while trying on the entire collection in the dressing rooms, was how much of that tie dyed print can one really have in their closet? I am definitely pushing the limit with both a sweater and a t-shirt.

Among other things that I purchased outside the Thakoon collection, I found these great stripper-esque shoes.

I have to admit, I've been going a little shopping crazy, with sales and target and such. Once I get back down to LA, I'm going to have to take a hiatus. What is the point of getting rid of tons and tons of clothes before you move, only to buy more???? I guess it is the story of my life though...
