Some over-zealous yahoo at Target thought it would be a clever idea to partner up with Neiman Markus.
Dear Over-Zealous Yahoo:
Target is where I purchase my q-tips for $.20 less than Fry's, hangers for $.25 less than Big-Lots, and Rubber Maid bins for $2 less than Lowes.
Target exists solely for the cheapskate who likes to buy the occasional purse on clearance while crossing off tampons from her list.
I inquire this - who did Target have in mind as their target audience (that's funny) when it signed the contract to sell clothing designed by Tracy Reese? (who btw designed this jacket, I want it I want it I want it, and will only cost me 15 plasma donations)
The frock in question
Marchesa's name graces this dress
As well as her price point
No Target customer I know would ever purchase a hideous, 5 lb be-jeweled shirt for $80, or a $100 white (white!) dress for their 4 year old. That's about 4-5 plasma donations each.
And "Hand Beaded" doesn't evoke a sense of worth; I only imagine the severely under-paid 14-year-old in Indonesia.
I look forward to seeing the above merchandise on the clearance rack, because we both know you're not moving many of these puppies at their current pricing schedule.
