Well friends.....I am about to face my ultimate temptation.....Target is coming to Canada! (http://www.torontosun.com/money/2011/01/13/16870581.html) Normally, I would be excited about an announcement like this! For so long Canadians were deprived of little gems like Old Navy, Payless Shoes, Forever XXI, H&M and Victoria Secret, but now I couldn't imagine life without them. Well maybe that is a little dramatic....but let's just say I celebrated their move to Canadian soil and have enjoyed being able to access them without crossing the border (who wants to sweat it out in your car as you are grilled about how much money you spent and what you are bringing back?). But Target....that is the one store that I always hoped would come to Canada. Sure we have Zellers and Wal-Mart, but you don't see Zac Posen, Karl Lagerfeld or Justin Timberlake designing lines for those discount stores. Oh and these boots......where else can you get a great pair of boots like this in Canada for less than $50???
I saw these on my J Project Friend Justine's post about her first retail shopping expedition in a year....and where did she go? Target of course.
I fell in love at first sight with these boots but I felt safe with the border as a buffer between us.....but now....danger! Friends, that buffer is no longer. But hey, business deals take awhile to solidify so it will probably be 2012 by the time the stores actually open in Vancouver....right? Think positive :)
