Modern Breadbox

I was browsing Target on Wednesday, not really with the intent to buy any housewares, but I perused much of the store just to see the Liberty of London pieces because the patterns look so darn cute. When lo and behold, I laid my eyes on the turquoise bread box by Room Essentials. And it's only $14.99! I almost cried because it doesn't work in my current kitchen. I'm considering buying it to put away for the next house. My Target stocked the red and turquoise, although I think it's available in yellow, green, black, and white as well. Oh, and the bread boxes are much cooler in person - Target's pictures don't do them justice. They feel substantial too. Pic via Jenn Ski.
Although I was looking for inexpensive dresses to wear on vacation (not that I have one exactly planned yet), what I picked up was this Liberty of London Tunic. It's so versatile, and although it's really thin and airy, it's not see-through. Sleeves roll up or down, pair it with capri leggings and flip-flops or dressy heeled sandals, or wear belted with leggings and boots, throw on a cardigan or blazer over it, or wear it alone as a swim cover-up (it's cute enough to go from beach to town). It's adorable!

I loved every single piece of the Liberty of London Target collection -- I was really surprised how wearable and pretty all of those florals are!

Damn, I wish we had Target here in Canada. I love the look of those bread boxes and have actually been searching for one. I`ve seen a cool one at a thrift store recently and for some reason didn`t get it and it was soo cool, been kicking myself ever since.

hee hee! That's so funny that you mention the breadboxes ... I was at Target a few weeks ago - and was literally giddy when I laid my eyes on them! Such a sleek and chic, utilitarian little piece - and keeps our bread safe from our boxer, Kennedy. (He's been known to pull an entire loaf from the countertop - should we inadvertently leave it out. Eats the entire thing! He's even eaten a pound of butter that I had out - trying to get it to room temperature.) The microwave serves as a makeshift breadbox, according to my husband... which annoys me every time I open it to heat something up.
