Usually I'm a big fan of the Target designer collaborations. But looking at the recent Altuzarra collection I didn't see much that I was interested in that hadn't already sold out. But I went into my local Target anyway and the crane sweater caught my eye.
It was cute but looked a little plain on to warrant the $49.99 priced tag so I put it back and decided if I saw it later I could always change my mind.
But since I was at Target anyway I decided to wander around a bit and found two sweaters in my size on the clearance rack
And the one I'm wearing today:
I scored each one for $11.88. They're both sturdy enough to wear in the winter, especially if layered with a top underneath but not too thick that they can't be worn during early fall, very similar weight to my Lilly Pulitzer sweaters.
Pretty much anytime I'm in Target I like to swing by the ladies clearance section as its a good place to pick up basics like cardigans and cotton tees or I could find a cute top I completely missed when it first went out. I was a little surprised to find sweaters on clearance since we are just getting into sweater weather. Like my beloved lilly sales I think the best deals to be had are at the end of the season - I store my off season items in a suitcase and it's like a shopping spree when I get to change them out. I'm at the point now where come each season I only need to refresh a basic or two and get a few trend pieces to mix in. Now if only I had more storage space for it all!
