The Tiny Heart: Target Fail

2.25.2013

Target Fail



Cardi-Old Navy (similar), Top-Forever 21 (similar), Scarf-Target (similar), Jeans-Old Navy, Flats-Target

This weekend I decided I'd go to Target and go on a little shopping spree, since I managed to rack up $70 in Target gift cards. Right away I spotted a bunch of things I liked, including this lace peplum top. Off to the dressing room I went. And guess what? I didn't like the way a single thing fit. They all looked great on the hanger, but not on me. 

Normally when I go into Target, I want to buy the entire store (but I don't thanks to my bank account). When I have free money to Target, I can't find a single thing to buy! 


PS Last day to enter the February Group Giveaway!

  1. I hate it when that happens! Such a shame as the lace top is so cute, I have a real problem with peplums though, they don't seem to do a urging for me :/ Love the mix of polka dots x

  9. I've been wondering about the same thing...I've been eying the spring target ads in the magazines but haven't gone to the store to check out the goods.

  10. of course that happened! hate that!

  11. The same thing happens to me all the time!!!! I hate that!!! I tried on the kaleidoscope skirt from Target and didn't like the way it fit on me. :(

  13. That's how it is. I always have the hardest time finding things when I have money burning a hole in my pocket. But I always find TONS of stuff when I'm on a shopping freeze.

  15. I'm the same way! I've had a Target giftcard since Christmas that still has $ on it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I know how that is! When I actually have the money to buy something, every thing is ugly or doesn't look good on me. Boo! Love your blue pants though!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love the dots on dots - so cute! And I hate when that happens...hopefully you'll have better luck next time :)

  18. I think it's a psychological thing. When I don't have money, I want EVERYTHING, when I do have money, I seem to drag across the shop, not liking anything.
    Love this polka dot outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The black & white looks really cute with the blue pants! Can't believe you couldn't find anything to buy at Target! I could easily drain my bank account there haha

  20. Isn't that always how it works out? I hate when that happens! Sometimes I find if I try a different Target I have better luck too.

    I love your polka dot top and fun blue pants!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hate when that happens! Especially when there is money burning a hole in your pocket. Cute outfit, love the black and white with the blue pants.

    ReplyDelete
  22. HATE when that happens!! I stare at everything at Target each time I go then when I'm ready to pull the trigger..nothing!

  23. That happens to me sometimes too! Whenever I want to buy something, I can never find it. But when I go to Target for the purpose of picking up something random, like toilet paper, I end up leaving with $100 worth of clothes!

  24. I know exactly what you mean!! But I'm loving the outfit you put together. I have a similar one but I never thought to put the polka dots together with the blue pants! You look so cute!

  25. i know how you feel, exactly!!! i always go into target and leave with a huge bag of stuff.. haha! i'm sure you'll find something next time! ;)

  26. This always happens to me...when I have gift cards, I find nothing. When I don't I want everything!! What's up with that???? Sorry Target did come through for ya!! Give it time...I bet you will fall in love with a few things real soon!

    ReplyDelete
  27. ahhh i hate it when that happens! so disappointing.
    but at least you still have those $70 in gift cards :) haha

  32. Love the mixing of polka dots! Looks great!

  33. I hate when that happens! At least you stopped to try it on though.
    Usually, I'll just grab it (having kids with me makes me hate trying things on) and then I'll be super disappointed about how it fits.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That happens to me from time to time too! I hate it! I do love your dots on dots today!

    ReplyDelete
  35. that's what always happens to me too! when i'm just browsing - i find a ton of stuff, but then when i actually have money/giftcards - nada. haha.

  38. Oh no!! Hopefully you can go back again and find better things. I always get sucked into the beauty section at Target.

    I love your blue pants and the dots on dots in this outfit. Cute look!!

  40. I love this look! Cobalt is one of my favorite, favorite colors and I love the way you paired it with the black and white polka dots! You look great! Sorry about the Target fail, I know how that goes. I'm in the same boat as you at Nordstrom Rack. Normally, I want to buy everything and I've had a $200 gift card since my birthday and I still have $130 on it! We should switch, I recently saw REVERSIBLE jeans at Target and I am dying to try them, but they aren't on sale yet!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I hate when that happens! I double dots are super cute.. especially with those cobalt pants!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your scarf!

    I sometimes hate clothes shopping because I go into the dressing room with several items that I like and if I'm really, really lucky one will fit.

    The peplum top is cute in pictures, but I feel like short ladies like you and me have to be very peplum picky or we look shorter. On the upside, gift cards don't expire.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's always so frustrating. I went outlet mall shopping this weekend and had the same experience. :P Love those cobalt blue pants!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Bummer! I hate when that happens. Well, it's a good thing you decided to wait until you find something you really love :) I'm sure you'll be back to Target again soon (if you're anything like me) ;D

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the double polka dots! That's so annoying when that happens with gift cards, but target is a great one to have since you can also use to it buy groceries and stuff you need around the house :)
    Hope you're having a great start to your week!

  46. I hate it when things looks so amazing on the hanger or mannequin, and don't look the same when I try them on. So frustrating! I love this outfit that you put together. The royal blue combined with the polka dots...super cute!

  47. I had a similar experience at Target recently! Loved so many things on the hanger, but they just didn't fit right. It's too bad, and I hope they get back on track soon! That said, love the double dots!

  54. I hate it when that happens, too! Don't worry, you & I both know how amazing Target's clothing section is (which I say without a trace of sarcasm), so it's pretty much guaranteed that you'll find some cool & flattering new duds soon. On another note, your mixing of polka dots is brilliant! They go together so well!!

  57. I am the SAME way. When my mom takes me shopping for Christmas, I can't find a single thing I like or that fits. When I'm on my own, I could seriously buy everything.

    ReplyDelete
  58. it's always when you are READY to shop that you cant find anything
    I bet if you were trying to SAVE money there would be a dozen things that looked awesome :-)

  63. The same thing happens to me when I have a Target gift card ... I can't find one thing to buy ... any other time I am walking out with $100 of stuff I can't remember later.

    Hope you had a fab weekend!

  71. Hah, doesn't that just figure. :P At least you didn't get anything you didn't really love and you have the cards save up for later, so maybe it's sort of a win? And wow, you always find the cutest polka dotted items, I really like how dramatic the blouse looks with the bright blue jeans.

  75. geesh that is a first that once you have money to spend at target you can't find anything and at target nonetheless, what is happening when you can't find anything at target you want!

    ReplyDelete
  76. That always happens to me when I go to target! I go into the fitting room with so many things in my hand and usually leave with nothing! Love the polka dot on polka dots! Great look Sharon!

  86. Yep, that's the way it goes. When you have no money, you could spend it all, but when you've got it, you can't find a single thing to spend it on! lol

    You look cute in your polka dots!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Oh man! I can definitely understand that--I've had that many times when I'm purposefully going shopping, I have money set aside or I have something specific I'm looking for....and nothing, nothing at all fits! It's so frustrating!

    ReplyDelete
  88. That happens to me all the time!! When you seem to have money to spend you sometimes can't find a thing to spend it on. :) I love this look - black and white with cobalt has been one of my fave color combos since this fall!!
