Default Another reason to shop in Target....

My Mum sent my 5yo over a gorgeous outfit for Xmas from Monsoon in the UK. When we opened it it looked familiar and it was only when I went to hang it up today I realised why.....it's exactly the same fabric as a Target outfit we bought her last month!!! Thing is, I know Mum would have spent a lot of money on the Monsoon outfit, and I haven't the heart to tell her she would have gotten in half price in Target.

We've also found about 6 other items almost identical to Next stuff in both fabric and design in Target. Let's hear it for good old Target.

Target rocks!

Apart from those badly-screen-printed t-shirts with both long sleeves and short sleeves. My $25 casual shoes are still going strong nearly 3 years in.

Target's great. It's well known for carrying the same stuff as Next (if that's what you like) but hadn't heard it had the same stuff as Monsoon (which is ok).

Yeah we like Target, get most of our stuff from there and so far so good. Not much has worn out before being grown out of.

All the clothes from Next/Target etc come from the same factories in China.
