Happy Weekend and a Thank You!

Sorry I've been M.I.A most of the week, I've been holed up in manufacturing facilities handling a project.  As a follow up to last Friday's post, I did end up checking out the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration, well let me say I was disappointed.  The price points didn't match what I saw at all.  Just too much money for the quality, I was expecting a bit more polish for the price and it just wasn't there for me, so I walked out empty handed.  I mean the Oscar de la Renta tote that I wanted was $60, which in reality was a basic natural canvas tote with a print on it - NOT worth $60.  So thanks, but no thanks.  I'll wait for the clearance prices.  And I don't know about your Target, but nothing has sold at my Target - the shelves are overflowing with this stuff.  Enough of my rant, on to better shopping news...

A couple of weeks ago I won a sweet $200 gift card giveaway for MaxStudio over at Sandy a la Mode!  I mean, wow, right?!?  I wasted no time picking out some goodies, check 'em out:

Here they are in full (except the green/black check top - which I couldn't find online anymore)
I love everything I picked out, just perfect!  So, a HUGE thank you to Sandy for hosting such an amazing giveaway!  She has a great blog so make sure you stop by and check it out!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!


  1. awesome picks! thanks again for reading, entering and for the shoutout here! enjoy your new maxstudio lovelies! :)


  2. the stuff hasn't been selling at the targets here either. i still want that ornament.

  3. Wow what a great win!

    I was hesitant about the Neiman Marcus x Target collection too. It wasn't worth the prices to me either :(

  4. Wowwww!!!! That is fantastic that you won that. Great picks with your winnings :-)

  5. Wow, what a great giveaway win and fabulous picks you made. I was also underwhelmed by the Target/NM collab.

  6. So excited to see what you picked out! Love Sandy. Amazing giveaway...good for you!!! xo

  7. You did well with your gift card. And I agree with you, so many of the pieces from the Holiday 24 collection weren't impressive in person, especially that tote bag. But I ended up buying 3 things that I really liked, including that cape I wore in my last post.

  8. um...WOW!! lucky you! love that tunic you picked.

  9. I totally agree about the NM for Target stuff being way too expensive. So awesome that you won the Max Studio giveaway, I love that tunic you got!!


Thanks for stopping by, I love hearing from you!
