I rarely buy clothing at Target because they don’t usually have much to fit my body type. If I still had the figure that I had in my twenties then Target would be a go to store. In general, they seem to stock clothing more for younger college age girls. But I have noticed that Target is pretty good at following the latest fashions and isn’t a bad place to shop for trendy pieces at a reasonable price.
That’s why, when we were finished filling our cart with the post-Christmas decoration bargains we had come to Target for, I was very pleasantly surprised when I swung by the women’s clothing area. There I found this little jacket and black furry scarf on the clearance rack for a very happy price. I was even able to get a little more bang for my buck by texting for a downloadable coupon to save another 25% off the clearance price. Technology can really be wonderful! Of course I sometimes use different adjectives for technology when my website is giving me fits!
The colors and pattern on this short jacket didn’t just speak to me, it pretty much shouted! The classic look somehow makes me think of England. This is especially notable since I have yet to visit the UK. But don’t worry; it’s on my bucket list! A fitted little jacket can be worn by all age women. Fitted is the key here! Especially when we don’t have as many curves as we used to (now where DID my twenties go?) This classic and essential jacket helps to give me back that figure with its cinched waist that lets the lapels funnel down through the single button before it flares back out again to form that desirable and sometimes elusive hourglass. I didn’t want to look too upper crust so added a bit of fun by pairing with a short skirt and (you knew the color would come in) a bright neon yellow bag.
Stay tuned for my New Year’s look.
