Every time I go to Target I like to hit up the women’s clothing clearance section, whether or not I need any clothing. This is especially true if I see a 70% off sign.
A few years ago, I was at my local Target and did just that. I always go immediately to the XXL hangers. When I saw this dress, I couldn’t believe it. I thought for sure it was a smaller size on the wrong hanger. Nope, it was a 2X! It was an online return and on clearance for only $9. Totally astonishing.
This is a dress that was designed by Victoria Beckham for Target and was only sold online. It’s a black polyester shift dress with a white collar and cuffs. There are bunnies embroidered on the collar. Fuckin’. BUNNIES.
Right up my alley, right? I wore it with my ol’ trusty black Mary Jane Wedges from Torrid. I don’t know why these shoes have such a low rating on the website. I wear these often, and they’re very comfortable. They’re very stable too; I don’t like feeling unsteady in a pair of shoes.

Cryptids are becoming more and more popular these days, showing up in all corners of pop culture including movies, books, and podcasts.

I came across this cute yellow plaid shirt from Ava & Viv at my local Target last week. I was looking for shirts for this weird east coast late fall weather; is it 20 degrees and snowing or 60 degrees and sunny? This was a good choice that suited all of my needs. I like the color; it’s yellow, which I don’t typically wear, but sort of a mustard-y gold. It’s more of a camp shirt, which I prefer instead of a flannel because it’s less steamy when combined with other layers. It also has a second row of sneaky buttons so there’s no gap at the front of the shirt! It’s so nice to be able to wear a button down shirt and not worry that it’s gaping at the chest.
Envirotex jewelry clay is super easy to use. You can embed anything in the clay, so the possibilities are pretty much endless. I used some gem chips, gemstones, plastic greenery, even a little rubber snake!
Once I find a dress that I like, I tend to hang on to it. This sapphire colored bodycon dress has been a favorite of mine for years. I bought it at Forever 21 on clearance in 2016 so it isn’t on the site anymore. It’s velvet and has a light geographic burnout print.

Moon water is water that has been charged by the full moon. The moon water can be given different properties based on the astrological sign associated with the current moon. (This is a great resource that tells you which properties each astrological sign most signifies.)
This month, the full moon is in Gemini as of 12:39 AM Eastern on Friday November 23rd, so you’ll want to leave this out overnight on Thursday the 22nd.
