Attack of the Giant Foo Dogs!

I was in Target today looking for shower caddies (thrilling stuff) and wandered into the garden/patio section as I continue to dream up how to pimp out my new outdoor space with views of the Prudential Tower.  I turned down an aisle and had to steady myself when I saw THESE. Ginormous patio foo dogs!!!!! Like three feet tall! You know how I love me some foo dogs, and these were the biggest ones I’ve ever seen. I did not load them into my cart and skip to the checkout because I couldn’t tell if they were cheesy (not stone, but that faux resin stone) and at this scale perhaps too much foo? Plus eighty bones is a lot to part with for a giant foo dog made of plastic.

But I really wanted to get them simply because they exist. It seems like these might be something I’ll see on clearance in a week.

Fashion Friday: A Target Runway

Target is so upping the ante this spring with their designer collaborations- first launching March 7th is John Paul Gaultier and then later this spring ZAC POSEN! I found lookbook images for both collections and I am so friggin’ excited!

Gaultier for Target–  Oh hello trench coat, striped shirt dress, faux leather jacket, strapless black dress, yellow dress AND striped tee. I’d like to introduce you to my CLOSET.

And here’s Zac Posen. Currently stroking out over this line, it is so genius. I’ll be online the second it launches April 25th to order these first three amazeballs looks immediately. Perhaps one of the printed dresses too. Ok, I’ll take all of it. Wrap it up.

(But not the socks with heels. Still can’t get on board with that.)

On top of that, if you can handle more, is the news that Liberty of London is going to be doing a limited edition home decor line with them as well! My goodness!  Seeing as they have had such success with their designer collaborations (such as with the late, great Alexander McQueen) I expect to see more and more of these! Even celebs are wearing the designer Target collections on the red carpet. Loving Nicky and Natalie’s Rodarte for Target looks.
