rogan for target.

if you know me at all, you know about my undying love for all things target. i adore almost everything about the store, from the clothes to the home goods to the fact that i can buy my favorite method cleaning supplies there. and i especially enjoy their "go international" line, which, as i've mentioned, features capsule collections from well-known designers. so far my clothing repertoire includes an alice temperley dress, the most adorable black-and-white polka dot jovovich-hawk dress, and now this t-shirt from the rogan collection. (before you say anything, let me assure you that i am aware that it is slightly '80s-tastic, but the pattern is much more subdued in person, the sleeve has a girly ruched detail and i would only wear this with dark jeans or fitted black pants, not khakis like the model below.)

now, this is going to sound weird, especially since i just purchased the t-shirt, but to be quite honest, i'm not entirely thrilled with all the rogan stuff – it's a lot of muted colors and some of it is a bit too simple, even for me. however, this little factoid almost outweighs all of that: rogan has used 100 percent certified organic cotton in each piece, and that's something that i totally support, especially after talking to the lovely ladies of obli organics (click here to read that post). if rogan is willing to help spread the message about the need for environmental sustainability to the masses, then the $17 i paid for this t-shirt was certainly well spent. (and by the way, it is seriously the softest thing ever.)

ps: flickr is a wonderful thing. i went through all my photos and have sorted and organized most of them; you can view them by clicking on the "{ PMiTG } on flickr" link in the upper righthand corner. i'll be updating regularly and will hopefully upgrade to a pro account sometime soon. enjoy.

pps: oscar's scratch lounge arrived yesterday afternoon and he is loving it. photos to come!
