the odds of hitting your target go up dramatically when you aim at it.

 Finally, finally, Target has come to Canada! This long-anticipated launch has caused quite the stir around here: Is it good? Will it be better than other stores? Are the prices too expensive?  Everyone has an opinion on the subject. So, I thought it was only fitting that I shared my own.

I've been to Target stores when I've visited the US, so I wasn't sure how the Canadian locations would compare to the US ones. For the most part, things were pretty much the same. There were a lot of the same brands, though we don't have all of them.

The prices weren't too bad. Overall, they were reasonably priced, but certainly not super cheap. The clothes were more expensive than say, Wal-Mart, but the quality of the clothes was a lot better. Mostly I was excited that there were Sonia Kashuk brushes! Unfortunately the selection was pretty low, but the stores aren't totally stocked yet. (I am trying to be patient on that one!)

I ended up picking up a bunch of clothes and some odds and ends. Here is my very first Canadian Target haul!

I picked up a couple of cute dresses that I absolutely cannot wait to wear. They will be absolutely perfect for Spring! The blue one is so it!

There were some really cute blouses that I snagged - I am definitely all about floral print and lace right now, if you couldn't tell.

While I was there, I also picked up a super hilarious and awesome mustache sweater (I don't know why I love anything with a mustache on it...I just do!) and a cute pink top.

Lastly, I bought some awesome sunglasses (I am such a sunglasses addict) and a cute Sonia Kashuk makeup brush holder!

Overall, I am definitely happy with my experience at Target. So many cute things!

Canadians - have you visited a Target location yet?
