Dear Target

Dear Target,

Yesterday I was perusing my twitter feed when I discovered that you had just announced collaborations with three amazing bloggers - Joy, Jan and Kate (!!!). Kate lives in Minneapolis, so she gets her name italicized and exclamation marks, too. Anyway.

I know you've have some troubles these past few months, but I've stuck with you through it all. Because let's be honest: nobody else sells affordable, everyday toiletries and home goods in an aesthetically pleasing environment quite like you do. And nobody else makes me blatantly fall for their marketing tactics and not feel bad about myself for it quite like you do. Sometimes I think you should follow me around a store and see the things that end up in my cart, you know, to further your marketing strategies. Case in point:

This DVD that's perfectly placed at the front of the store that I never knew I needed until right this moment? Yes! This dress that was hanging on the aisle that I don't have time to try on but that I somehow must have? Sure! E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in the newest Threshold or Nate Berkus home collections? Why not! 

It's borderline embarrassing.

And then yesterday you announced those three collaborations and I remembered another reason why I've stuck with you. Because your collections with some of my favorite designers are incredible and make you even more of a force to be reckoned with. So if you couldn't already tell, I'm pretty excited for March 16th (and June and September, too).


But seriously, have you guys seen this? I'm so excited. 

And no, I promise no one told me to write this post, just in case anyone was wondering.
