Target Spring 2009 Style Guide

For more details go to FlipGloss

There's a new website called that may change the way we look at fashion online: Flipgloss uses magazine-style, photo-driven spreads to present users with interactive, eye-catching content.

Above, you'll see a glossy virtual mini-mag with 31 images featuring the latest spring collections at Target. Click on any item to find out how much it costs and where you can buy it.

Warning: You're going to want EVERYTHING! I saw most of these items during my last trip to Tar-zhay, including the lovely homegoods, and it makes me want to just revamp my entire wardrobe and redecorate my whole house! And that Merona "Paddington" coat is quite possibly the cutest coat I've seen all spring. You'll also see new accessories from the just-launched Felix Ray for Target collection. Ooh-la-la!

Check it out and let me know what you think of their format, Flipgloss will be looking for your feedback!
You're right--I DO want everything. They've got the coolest housewares.

I LOOOOVE the Merona coat...I saw it in the store last week and couldn't decide which color to get, so I decided to wait until I pick out a few other key pieces for, etc. then match it to those! :-)

Also, the $25 Merona Mozelle Peep-Toe Ballet Flats( ) are a pretty great alternative to the $50 (originally $79) Myles style flats (,default,pd.html?cgid=2915398&itemNum=19 )from Ninewest! At Target's price I could get both the brown and the black!

Those flats look almost identical, nice find!

Thanks! I was happy to find them because the brown ones match a work outfit I have perfectly but they were comfy so I wanted the black as well...I was about to go to the mall and shell out $100 at the Ninewest store when I saw your page and came across those so thanks! :-) Hopeully the Target version is just as comfy!

Target has a lot of really cute stuff right now. I went there yesterday, got a little crazy and ended up buying 10 dresses! :o( I think I need to avoid stores and online shops for a while...

Although that Merona coat is lovely (AHH).

I was just at Target today and walked by most of these items...the mag really plays them up. Looks pretty good!

i was at target tonight but didn't really look at the clothes (just one clearance rack) b/c there was so much stuff! i really like their clothes but i get overwhelmed easily b/c there's no such thing as only looking at some stuff for me. it's pretty much all or nothing. i did see the navy paddington coat on sale for $25 on the clearance rack. i'm not sure if they're all on sale or if there was something wrong w/ that particular coat.

i remember when i saw a merona cardigan priced for $2.98 & the worker told me they must have tagged it wrong...and when i scanned it in, it was still $2.98

Funny, I saw that Paddington coat in the catalogue ad-book that comes through the mail (also done very well) and I wanted it BAD!

So I did it; I bought the Paddington coat in the orange. Didn't have it in my store (of course) so i got it online; with a purchase of $50 I got an additional 10% off plus free shipping, so I added a dark denim straight skirt. Thanks for the info - I hope this will be as cute of an outfit on, as I imagine it will be!
