Missoni for Target Australia final sale

Remember the crazy 2011 Missoni for Target sale that crash Target's own website and caused fashionistas days of anguishment?  Well, certainly not at the down and under Target.  Probably because of the frenzy ensued at American Target few years ago, Australian Target apparently made plenty of stock to go around and then some.  But because they stocked so much merchandise, they are now having a fire sale to get rid of the remaining stock!  I'm going to highlight few pieces that I think are tremendous deal so get ready to beg your relatives/ friends in Australia to send these to you.  Oh, and by the way, American dollar have shot up in value lately so when you see something that's $10 AUS, it's actually about $8 USD.  Score!

These wedge sandals have classic Missoni pattern but at $10 AUS price tag (yes, you read that right...  that's like $8 USD) and all sizes available, you just simply can't beat the price and style even after adding shipping cost from Australia to US.  The original price tag was $69 AUS.

These see through pouches are perfect for your traveling needs or toss them in your purse if you need some compartmentalization.  They are perfect organizers and at $10 AUS (marked down from $30), you just simply cannot go wrong with them.  Plus they are super light to ship.

Need a tote bag that is stylish yet if you lose it, you won't be crying for days?  Well, Missoni for Target Australia has you covered.  This Geo Tote is perfect for your summer outing to supermarket or beach and at $15 AUS (originally $59 AUS), it's about the same price as any reusable grocery bags you get at any US supermarket.  

And don't forget to check out kid's, men's and home section.  There is plenty left over in those categories as well.

Remember when you were younger, you probably had a pull toy that you pull to everywhere with you.  Well, one of my favorite artist Yoshitomo Nara designed a pull toy for your toddler to play with.  It's an adorable dog!  This dog is made of hardwood and is painted with none-toxic finish.  This 2 pound puppy is made in France and is friendly to everyone!  ;)

Who doesn't like a cashmere teddy bear?

Sure.  It's a controversial color: chartreuse!  But it's snugly and best of all, it's marked down from $165 to $66.  Now that's a price I can snuggle against!  This color is actually a perfect for your modern interior be it children's room or on your vanity table.  It'll bring a nice pop of color to a gray or blue color scheme room.  This bear is designed by Armand Diradourian and made by hand.

Quiet please!!!

Do you want a room to be somewhat sound proof?  Or maybe you have a large living room that echos too much because you just put in that sleek concrete flooring recently?  Abstracta to the rescue.  Stitch Room Divider is a soft screen that not only divide up a large space but can absorb excess unwanted noise.  I love the appearance of the screen: soft and cuddly... which isn't exactly the type of adjectives one would use when one think of a room divider.  This is perfect for restaurants, baby's room, or a large living room that echos too much.

Cindy Sherman, the ever changing lady

Cindy Sherman is indeed the master of disguise.  This film director and photographer never seize to amaze me what she will come up with next.  She's a consummate solo artist who does everything herself; from doing her own makeup and hair to taking pictures.  What brought her fame is the Untitled Film Stills series she did in 1977-80.  This series consists of 69 black and white photographs of her in different roles and different settings. These photographs are reminiscent of American film noir in the 1940s-60s.  In 1995, MOMA purchased the whole lot in one swoop.  Today, you can have a slice of the Untitled Film Stills by going to Sundance Institute.  Cindy Sherman is releasing a limited edition (500) porcelain tray for an affordable ($150).  Her photographs from this series usually sell for $200,000 to over $2,000,000.  Buy it while you can because I predict this will sell out fast!

Spinning plates to give you a splash of color on your dining table

Ever want to add bold colors to your dining table when you have dinner guests over but afraid it might be a bit too much?  Well, Damien Hirst to the rescue.  He is now selling a set of six plates for an affordable 120 pounds.  These plates, based on his artwork: Beautiful, amore, gasp, eyes going into the top of the head and fluttering painting, will definitely bring lots of colors to your table and stir some nice conversations.  If the colors are a bit too much on your table, you can always hang them on your wall.  This is a much cheaper alternative than his multi-million dollar paintings at Christie's or Sotheby's.
