Because of Hurricane Irene, I was unable to update this weekend. Thanks to the local Starbucks (that's conviently located inside the local A&P), I have electricity and free Wi-Fi.
Anyway, as I was stranded inside my home, I decided to finally look through my September issue of Elle where I saw K Mart advertising their new lookbook.
While Target, which is slightly more pricier than Walmart, sell shirts that at average goes for $20 because that fits the demographic of their consumers. Target also makes collaborations with higher brand designers such as Missoni, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Alexander McQueen. These collaborations make the clothing more desirable and therefore, makes the higher prices acceptable. I'm perfectly okay at spending $50 on Missoni shoes from Target, but I just can't bring myself to do the same at K Mart.
You know, it looks like i'm nitpicking at K Mart too much, but if they're going to be competing with the big dogs, they're going to need to step it up a notch. Still, there are some pieces from the collection that intrigue me, such as the clogs (worn on the model above, to the left) And the Maxi Sweater dress.
Anyway, I'm not at home now and I gotta cut this blog post short. My electricity might be out for a few days, so I guess I'll be making daily trips to A&P for the rest of the week. Keep a lookout for a future blog post where I'll be making a purchase from K Mart's fall collection and I will be evaluating the products.
Stay safe everyone on the East Coast and Happy Blogging!
