Betty's Bargains: Part II-Target

Yesterday I shared my recent Old Navy purchases. Today, it's Target. I initially went to Target looking for... actually, I cannot remember why I went to Target, other than the fact that it was the closest store when I first walked in the mall. I also needed shampoo and face wash, but not necessarily from Target. But I digress. Here is what I left Target with:

Scoop Neck Embellished Tee-Navy Fleet
The original price on this tee is $14.99, but I actually picked up mine on the clearance rack for $7.49. It was the only one in the whole store (or so I imagine) and it was in my size.

I was in desperate need of a bathing suit, (all of mine are at least five years old and pre-children). I tried on several suits, including these:

These pieces are a part of the Mossimo Mix & Match Collection, in yellow. I also tried on different pieces in blue. Loved the top, but unfortunately, not so much the bottoms. The size selection was also limited since everything was currently on sale.

Xhilaration Swimsuit with Gold Broach in teal $14.99
I actually really loved the bottoms to this swimsuit, but really hated the top. The bottoms were surprisingly flattering and didn't cut into the, ahem, meatier portions of my body, like other suits are apt to do. The top, however, was the most unflattering thing I have ever tried on. Not to mention that the gold broach was too distracting and fairly ugly. But it looks pretty good on the model!

I ended up with this bikini:

Mossimo 2-Piece Bikini in blue/black stripe - $19.99 apiece
Would you believe that I scored this swimsuit on sale? Yeah, for a whole $1 off the original price! I paid $18.99 per piece. Score!

I also picked up two impulse purchases:

Coverup Dress in canary yellow - $17.99

Necklace Coverup Dress in black - $19.99
This black coverup dress was on the clearance rack for $9.98 and looks a lot better in person than on this model. (And I like to think better on me than on her as well).

I also tried on a few pairs of shoes, but thankfully, they did not have my size in any of them. (Budget!) Here are my top three faves that I tried on:
Wauna Braided Flat Sandals in Tan - $14.99
Paz Strappy Heeled Sandals in Natural - $24.99
Mandana T-Strap Pumps in Red Patent - $24.99

I fell in love with these t-strap pumps, but really wanted them in the black patent. Unfortunately, so did everyone else since they only had two pairs left, both in size 10! Guess it just wasn't meant to be.

So... How did I do?


  1. I love that bathing suit! And the tee at the beginning was so cute!!! GOOD JOB! I love the PAZ heels. I am such a sucker for Target. I ran in there this morning just to pick up a cardi to match my outfit cuz the conf. room was cold..! I could go to Target every single day and still find stuff I need! LOL! You are such a good girl for staying within budget.

    BTW - it was nice to hear from you! I haven't stopped by in a while and I don't know why! I just LOVE your blog. Cheers! xoxo

  2. Thanks, Sherry! Fortunately for me, the closest Target is about an hour away! And thanks for stopping by. I actually haven't even ventured near the blogging world in a few months. Been on a sort of hiatus for a while there. Hoping to get back into the swing of things now!
