Target Practice: Missing The Mark

Hey Everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the weekend. The weather today was glorious! I definitely needed to get out and enjoy the warm weather before the cool winds of fall are officially here to stay. As I transition from college life to professional life, my need for clothing continues to increase. My goal,again, is to look fabulous and professional while spending within my means. Recently,The big #boycotttarget movement, started by blogger, GarnerStyle,  gained national attention. I, like Chastity, have been absolutely Fed Up with Target’s plus size selection(well lack there of)! Throughout the years, I have tried to give Target countless opportunities to impress me with the plus size clothing. Needless to say, the failure of their clothing options for plus size women has entirely overshadowed the successes. After being continually disappointed by Target, I stopped purchasing clothing from there. Today, I decided to give Target’s plus size section another chance. Of course, every store will have things that work well  and areas of improvement. Target definitely made it clear that plus size women have no place in their store when it comes to style unless you have a thin/slim body.  Here are pieces that caught my eye today!

This shirt looked great on the rack, but terrible on my body. My arms were screaming! Nope. Failure.
A thinner  plus size woman might be able to enjoy that shirt.

This shirt wasn’t bad. It can be flatter on plus size woman regardless of their shapes. 

I didn’t hate this shirt either.  Something about it made me feel old.

This skirt was on sale for $16 bucks and it fit me. Work appropriate and can be worn out on the town or to church. Definitely liked this. I wish hugged my body better. 
I enjoyed this simply black dress! Like the skirt, I can be worn for many occasions. 
This skirt is ok. Honestly, I’m sure Walmart will have something similar to this with a better price. 
During my visit, I tried on several other pieces including a faux leather jacket, and a stripped skirt. Overall, I had high hopes that the section would be better especially after the backlash from the  #boycotttarget movement. Here’s the dilemma.The pieces have potential but the execution is awful. The arms on the shirts are always extremely tight. I’m just not satisfied. Every blue moon, I’ll find a few things that I in the plus size section in Target. In summation, target needs to DO BETTER! 
Here’s what I wore today!

Until Next Time,

  1. You're right! Targets main line is always banging. Target should feature designers for its plus size line like it does the main line. Also, consistency in the sizing and fit of the line need to be established. Compare your Targets plus section the the main line, I'd like to know if it's better regionally/ based on location! Thanks so much for commenting!
