So, yesterday, I headed to my neighborhood Target (okay it's nowhere near my neighborhood, but it's the next best thing) to pick up some snack sized ziplocs.

I love snack sized ziplocs. They are the handiest thing ever. I don't know how I existed without them.

Anyhoo, I totally forgot in my work-induced idiocy that it was also the day that Proenza Schouler's line for GO! International debuted!

Actually, I was so out of it that I sort of stared dumbly at the display until an older woman tried to shoo me into the store.

I have to say that I definitely think this has been the best line that Target has had so far. The pieces are extremely wearable and don't feel flimsy, which has been a main complaint of mine with the other lines.

Now, the Target I went to didn't have the whole line. I really wanted to check out the multicolored top I saw online, but no dice. I thought the best items were the little purple sundress with the signature bra-top, the skinny jeans, and the super soft striped long sleeved tees.

One other thing I really liked was the combination of black and navy. I personally love it. Also...screw you girl from college who told me that wearing black and navy together was "wrong." Like murder. Ha! I was just more sophisticated than you.

Also...things to do with snack sized ziplocs:

  • storage for things in purse - I keep one for hair ties, one for bandaids, and one for Advil
  • travel case for makeup brushes
  • perfect for holding all seven of the pink lipglosses that I tote around
  • change purse
  • excellent for holding treats in a pocket and for discreet Metro snacking
  • weekend sized for shampoo/conditioner packets.

PS. Could not find many pictures of the items I liked but check here for the slideshow of the collection. You can also buy items through Amazon here!

I love it. I love the Proenza Schouler line also.

Another thing I found at Target recently that I LOVE is the Sonia Kashuk White Gardenia and Black Vetiver perfume. Now serioulsy I do not usually by fragrance at Target, and I usually loathe gardenia, but this stuff is awesome. I get much more dark vetiver than gardenia--and the drydown is delicious and spicy and creamy.
Have a beautiful day!

I am loving your blog too!

BUY PERFUME, not by perfume. Sorry it is early.

Does anyone know what Target in the DC area is currently carrying this line? I want to go ASAP!

I feel the same way about baby wipes as you do about ziplocks....they help me hair off my floor, room clean, wipe foundation of my hands, etc. Can't live w/o 'em.

i bought a ton of stuff at the proenza schouler pop up store in favorite items i bought were the black and navy satiny dress, the purple bubble print jacket, a chain link print tank in navy, and a purple tee that is so adorable and looks great belted at the waist. ...the proenza schouler design folks were there while i was there too and they were so freaking nice & funny. it is by far the best of the go international lines. p.s. if you're buying online...when in doubt size up.
