Off the Rack: New Knox Rose at Target

New Knox Rose at Target
It seems like the Knox Rose section at my local Target has expanded - does this mean it's been popular with shoppers since its debut back in the fall of 2015? I have to admit it's growing on me. The pieces are laid back and casual but feature unique details like cut-out shoulders, embroidery, lace, or fringe detailing. And the silhouettes are everyday glam...think off-the-shoulder, or oversized in a cool way.

Knox Rose reminds me of Free People, a super popular brand, and at a fraction of the price, I wouldn't be surprised if it's doing well. On the flip side, I've heard mixed reviews from readers...some say the quality isn't there, others say the perception is that it's priced higher than Mossimo and Merona, while others love the look but say the fit is off. I'm all about Mossimo lately and may have purchased this flannel shirt on clearance in 4 colors. Yup, I love it that much.

But I have my boho moments, too, and Knox Rose has some really cool pieces like this open-front cardigan, this knit top with lace sleeves, or this fringe pullover. Add your favorite distressed jeans, a pair of ankle boots, and you'll have people thinking you spent a small fortune on Free People in no time.

Any Knox Rose fans? What do you think of the quality and style?

Dollar Bin Diaries: Valentine's Day Finds at Target

Valentine's Day is back in the Target Dollar Spot.
Target is gearing up for Valentine's Day with its annual explosion of hearts and all things pretty-and-pink in the dollar spot. Whether you're planning a party or decorating your workspace, you'll find tons of adorable items to ooh and aah over.

I love the vintage inspired hobnail glassware that includes votive holders and drinking glasses, the tassel garlands, and the pretty heart shaped message boards.

I also love the trinket trays, polka-dot mugs, necklace stands, and rolling pins. Who am I kidding, I love just about everything and it took every ounce of willpower to resist filling up my cart!

Target makes it all stylish and affordable (just be mindful of the prices which range from $1 to $5 per item). What have you picked up this month at the dollar spot?
