Free Plaid Target Bag!

Thank you to readers Barbara and Christopher for alerting me on this (although I'm a bit late on posting the news - sorry!). Starting on Oct. 4th, Target is giving away a FREE plaid shopping bag to REDcard holders. This offer is only good in stores,only if you have a REDcard, and only while supplies last.

The Look for Less: Dorothy Draper vs. Safavieh

Fans of Hollywood Regency style will drool over this Dorothy Draper chest (shown on top left) - circa 1950 and available for $2,500 on 1stdibs. Sure, you could fork out the cash for this precious antique... or you could save your money and get a similar look with the Safavieh "Kennedy Chest" (shown on bottom left, and available on Target.com) for just $469.99.

Fab Find: Dollar Bin Scarf

While perusing the Dollar Bins at Target this weekend, I found this wonderfully soft infinity scarf. It's made of fluffy acrylic, and I nabbed this one in a pretty plum and cream combo, but I saw gray/cream and solid cream as well. And for only $3, the price can't be beat!

The Look for Less: Joie vs. Merona

By now you've probably heard that for the second year in a row, LL Bean's iconic Duck Boots are backordered for weeks. SheFinds came up with a stylish alternative - the "Delyth" boot by Joie (shown far left) - but they'll set you back a whopping $295. Consider the "Nancy" boot by Merona at Target (shown on the right) instead. They have a similar look/feel in a different color combo, and best of all, they're just $39.99!

Target Second Mass Retailer to Offer Apple Watch...

Consumerist reports that Apple is expanding where consumers can buy its Apple Watch, adding Target as the second retailer aside from the brand’s mothership to offer the gadget. Best Buy was the first retailer Apple allowed to sell Apple Watch.

Target says the Apple Watch will be in some stores this week, and in all locations by Oct. 25. For those who prefer shopping online, it’ll be available on Target.com on Oct. 18.

Just like the deal with Best Buy, shoppers will be limited to a certain assortment of watch styles — so don't count on finding the fancy 18-karat rose gold version for $17,000 at Target, as you’ll have to go straight to Apple for that. Select models and bands will be available at all Target stores, with more Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch styles available online, ranging from $349 to $599 in price.

Adam Lippes Flies Off Shelves (at least at my local Target...)

A quick visit to my local Target store today brought a surprise: the Adam Lippes for Target collection seems to has almost sold out! I wasn't that impressed with this collab, but I guess others are buying it, as there were no more housewares (as shown) available, nor any shoes. Of the clothing (men's and women's) there looked to be only XS and XL sizes available, and I only saw two handbags left.

So how about it, readers? Did you buy any Adam Lippes stuff, and if so, what'd you end up with?

The Look for Less: CB2 vs. Threshold

Faux animal-head wall trophies have been trending for a few years now, and this Fall they continue to show up strong. If you're into this look, you could go for the "Goldie" Wall Ram on the left from CB2, which will set you back just under $70. Or you can save some cash and opt for the Threshold version on the right (at Target) which costs just $29.99. To be honest, I prefer Threshold's all-white version without the gold horns.

PS: if you want something even more kitchy, check out Target's Plaid Felt Stag Head, also just $29.99.
