I had the absolute pleasure…. of attending the “TOMS for Target” shopping event on November 12th, at the Book Bindery in Culver City. And what an amazing evening it was! Target decorated the space to resemble a very Christmasy, log cabin and each of the shopping areas (5 in all) had a “teepee” pop up… hosting selected items for that grouping. Womens, Mens, Boys, Girls and a Home shopping area were present…. representing everything in the line. We were able to pre-shop that evening…. all while….. dining on fabulous comfort food and drink…. getting our photos taken in a “group” sweater….. doing a DYI ornament and craft…. listening to a really fun band…. and of course….shop! Blake Mycoskie gave a great speech about TOMS mission…. making the evening…. the perfect event!  – Laura Dunn

My outfit was purchased at the event (except sunglasses and leggings). The crew neck sweater has threads of gold metallic running throughout…. making it appropriate for day or evening. I picked the the simplest of all the shoes… the black faux leather with canvas sides….. added in the rocking poncho with an American Indian graphic on the back… and I am thinking my 3 pieces make for a really fun look!! 


TOMS has over 50 pieces in the collection… that retail for under 50.00…. hence the “50 under $50.00!
