Is formal the new casual?

I went to Target last night to pick up a red bow (for the grill of my car) and some Christmas tree ornaments. Nothing really screamed "Micah" - you know: martini shakers, penguins, nekkid ladies - but I did pick up a blue, metallic reindeer and a stained glass margarita, despite the fact that I'm not a fan of that particular libation. Hallmark had some cool Darth Vader and Scarlett & Rhett ornaments, but I'm not in a position to spend $18.95 on a single tree decoration. But I digress.

Looking at some normally reasonably-priced clothing at Target, I saw that they now offer cashmere scarves, French cuff shirts and cuff links. Yes, at Target. Interesting. The store I love has become even better. Will I soon be picking up a new CD, a case of bottled water, and a Coach briefcase on my next shopping trip there?

Dude, you just don't know...I loves me some Target.

Don't get me wrong. I was knocking Target or being sarcastic. I absolutely lurve the store and welcome the high-end merchandise.

They have a pretty snazzy weekend bag for $99. Not in my range...yet.

That should read "wasn't" above.

I <3 Target! I first looked for one right after I moved in and couldn't find one (the addresses on their website were off or something). Today I resume the quest to find a Target near me. Wish me luck!

Target's pretty cool, but I've taken a shine to Meijer here in Michigan. They have food, too.

THSE said...

Dubin, I piss on your Target imposter.

The Dubin said...

Really? Cuz' I think they have bathrooms INSIDE. And pissing on treasured landmarks can have negative consequences. Ask Ozzy Osbourne when he'll be able to go back to San Antonio.

THSe said...

just goes to show that there are two types of men in this world; those who piss wherever they want and those that piss where The Man tells them to piss. Ozzy and I belong to the former; Piss Free or Die!

law fairy - I thought LA people were too good to slum it at Target. Do they sell wheat grass smoothies there? Good luck trying to find one. I'm sure there's plenty of Huckabees in the Golden State.

dubin - Meijer's is cool, too, for the grocery and open 24 hours aspects. But Target still reigns supreme.

thse - Emulating Ozzy will only bring trouble (excessive drug consumption, incoherency, barking at the moon, etc.). Avoid.
