Promises, promises

A HUGE thank you to Slave to Target for posting a link to my Ticked Off article. I have felt like a rock star these past two weeks as my blog traffic tipped 2,000 visitors! I had my usual gang and then 1,950 Slave to Target folks coming by. (Waving) Hi guys!

Then Target emailed me!

They wanted to assure me that they ARE revamping their fall line and are paying more attention to fit, fabric, etc. They asked for my address and claimed to be sending some clothing for me to check out. I have to say I had to close my eyes and play out a fantasy where my article was read aloud in a board room. Especially the "Can we take in the titty fabric a bit?" comment. That was a week ago. I haven't seen anything in the mail yet. That's when I realized that "send you some clothes" might be code for "take a hit out on you" and maybe I shouldn't have been so forthcoming with my address. (Ducking)


The next day IGIGI emailed me and asked if it could send me an outfit to review. Wait, let me think about that one. Um, yea ok send me some free stuff.

So stay tuned, I'll give a review of the clothing when (if) it comes.

Blue Plate? (Via Alight) Happy to review anything you might want to send my way too! Like this awesome Lemon Drop dress.

Lucky Ducky! You scored (or will soon, anyway)! These reviews of yours--might you have found your Special Purpose?

Perhaps Diane. Perhaps.

That is so freaking cool. I love Target.

You go girl! Most of their stuff is too skimpy and is weird fitting. Set them straight!

Too funny! I actually work at Target, and amazingly enough a plea for people to participate in a "Women Size Wear Test" was on our internal website today!

"The Softlines Product Design and Development team is looking for team members and/or their friends and family to participate in an in-home wear test during the month of August. The focus of this study is to test and solicit feedback on our updated Women’s sizing."

I'm going to participate and will let you know if I find out anything!

Ok, it's killing me that you posted anon cause I have tons of insider questions I want to bug you with.

Do tell! And let them know they don't need to get all "special" for us big girls. Just use the same designs they have over in the misses section and supersize them.

I sort of figured you would! I don't have anything to do with the clothing/merchandising side of things, boring ol' finance is my world.

THAT IS SO COOL! Really!

mmm maybe I should complain about clothes at a certain store and then I'll get free clothes. LOL

Seriously, though, I'm so glad you wrote about that, because I get so annoyed at the fit of a ton of their clothes!

Lotta rules! :)

Thanks all! Target emailed again today to say that the delay was because they had to get special permission to send me items that aren't even in the stores yet. Could I be more excited?

Holy freak, I am excited for you and obscurely jealous all at the same time! Wow! I suppose they'll make you sign some sort of confidentiality agreement, that you won't post hot pics on your blog of yourself in not-yet-released Tar-ghey garb...but, ya know, I'm good at keeping secrets and my email can accept very large jpegs. Hee hee.
