Am I the only one who can't say that without saying it a la Kristen Wiig's "Target Lady"?
Well, yesterday was the big day -- the grand opening of Target here in Ottawa!
I didn't go early to line up outside, but I was there about 10 minutes after the store opened this morning.
Unfortunately, it wasn't early enough to snag a Phillip Lim handbag :(
Apparently the first few people through the doors each bought as many as they could fit on their arms, so not many people had a chance to buy them anyway. It kinda makes me sad that people can be so greedy, but what can you do? :)
Anyway, I thought the store looked really nice -- good layout, clean & bright, lots of employees & checkouts. Definitely a huge step up from the Zellers that was there previously (the company that Target bought out). Also on the plus side? The Starbucks inside the store was possibly the fastest Starbucks I've ever been to -- by the time I put my wallet back in my purse, my latte was ready for me.. That never happens!
So even though I didn't get the purse I had hoped to, I didn't walk away empty handed -- is that even humanly possible? :)
I ended up purchasing a pair of boots, and some new workout clothes (pants & a top):
I was in desperate need of a new pair of brown boots -- my other pair really should have been retired a while ago, but I was really holding on to them because I wasn't ready to let go! Now that they've been replaced, hopefully I can go through with it :)
I actually took my new workout duds out for a test run this afternoon (sidenote: I love that the weather has cooled down enough that I can run in the middle of the afternoon without dying of heat stroke! Yay!)
I must say, I was extremely pleased with both the pants and the top, but I think the top is my favorite:
I usually wear more fitted tops when I workout, but I actually really enjoyed the loose fit of this top! I also love that it's longer in the back than in the front -- a little extra butt coverage never goes astray. . . :)
What's the last thing you bought at Target?
Did anyone manage to get a Phillip Lim handbag?
Have a wonderful day!
