Target vs. Banana Republic

**Hi and Happy Monday! Thanks for all the sweet comments and emails about The Anniverary Challenge. I'll blog how it played out later this week, but per Dan's request, I'm letting y'all know in advance how, hands down, he planned the best day and has been declared the winner! Lucky him....lucky me!**

Recently I got this yellow t-shirt at Banana Republic. It was on sale for $34, which is actually more than I would usually pay for just a t-shirt, but I bought it after work, in a latenight shopping spree, so we'll call it a weak moment. It's just a simple t-shirt, striped (you can't tell from the photo) with a little frill on the sleeves. I figured for fall I could layer it under a purple sweater to cheer for the Ravens, or under navy or gray cardigans to wear casually with jeans. I didn't just adore it, but I'm kind of in a striped phase and I had a gift card, so I went for it......

You can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw THE SAME shirt at Target for just $10.


I am not a big shopper, and I pick up a lot of caridgans for cheap at places like Target and TJ Maxx. So, while I didnt lose my mind Missoni-style, I'm a general fan of Target for basics. I just had no idea that Target had THE SAME things as other retail clothing stores...probably because I don't shop in them often enough to take note. So...this may not be news to you, but...it was news to me. And, I thought I'd share. Buyer beware....

Ouch! That stinks, but now you know!! I've always enjoyed browsing through Target and sometimes I find great things. It's either hit or miss with me, though!

Wow - Uh, that sucks! Thanks for sharing though. I had no idea.

Is it the same exact brand or a "copy"? That would be irritating.
