    1. A triple compartment hand bag that can fit everything from your laptop to your hand sanitizer. Reviewers love that with so many pockets and compartments, they can easily find what they are looking for instead of having to dig through aimlessly.


    Promising review: "If you prefer a large purse than this is the bag for you. There’s plenty of room in both outside compartments and the middle section as well. I am able to fit my planner, MacBook, and iPad in just one of the outer compartments. The only thing I don’t care for is the outer compartments don’t have zippers, but they do clasp shut which still works fine! The quality seems good, especially for the price." –Target reviewer

    Price: $39.99 (available in three colors)

    2. A pair of pumps because they'll add height, look great, and are comfortable enough to wear all day long. Slip these on and watch your friends' shocked faces when you tell them how much they cost.

    The heels in the color brown/leopard

    Promising review: "I love these so much I just ordered a second pair. I bought the black ones twice because they're easy to match and great for my office job and going out. They're extremely comfortable and true to size, I have no problem wearing these all day because the platform in the front helps with your foot not being arched all day while giving the height of wearing heels." —Target Reviewer

    Price: $14.99 (originally $29.99; available in sizes 5-12 and in gold)

    3. A pair of rose quartz drop earrings strangers rave about every time I wear them. The best part? They are so lightweight that I practically forget I am wearing them.

    Price: $7.99

    9. A gold and brown watch because it screams "I have somewhere to be." Think about it for a second: do you know anyone who wears a watch that *isn't* classy?

    The watch

    Promising review: "I love that the look of this watch! It is so incredibly simple and has no wording on the face. (Which I love!) I also love that it has a simple brown watch strap that just screams cute, for an every day watch. Or it screams fall for that matter (which is my favorite season of course)." —Target reviewer

    The tights on a model's legs

    Promising review: "I wore these for the first time today and twice I was complimented by complete strangers (women) and asked where I bought them. I can't recall the last time a stranger, much less two, complimented something I wore. This pattern dressed up my denim shirt dress (also from Target), kept my legs warm on a cooler day, and were super soft and comfy." —Target reviewer

    Price: $10 (available in women's sizes S/M-1X/2X)

    14. An alligator print jacket because there's no wardrobe item more versatile than one that functions both as a basic essential and statement piece.

    Promising review: "This has to be one of the best pieces I have ordered.

    The coat on a model wearing a dark blue dress and lace-up black booties

    Promising review: "Unbelievably terrific. Believe It. I know Target has some hidden treasures. But this coat is absolutely unbelievable. I first read the other reviews, I only was interested because I received an alert. The fact it was on sale was a definite plus. So I was just thinking you can’t go wrong, if nothing else I thought it would be a nice fashion staple, on a clear day. But OMG when I opened the package the first thing I noticed was the weight of the packaging. It is folded so nicely and is in heavy plastic. But before I could get it open it’s so heavy, it’s so soft. The quality is amazing. Believe it this coat is an unexpected surprise. I think I got it from a high end department store. I’m in love." —Target reviewer
