Welcome to this week’s edition of Trendy or Try Hard. Normally I post a clothing collection from products currently available at Target however, this week I’ve decided to do a dinnerware collection. I was looking for men’s clothing on Target’s website when I stumbled on these beauties. I typically post collections that I find trendy but this dinnerware collection has to win the try hard of the year award. What do you think? I’d like you to rate my collection either TRENDY or TRY HARD. Once you’ve submitted your vote please leave me a comment to tell why you chose your rating.
Without further ado I present you Target’s TOO by Blu Dot Duct Tape Collection. At first I thought I was seeing things but it turns out this collection is seriously for sale at Target. I wouldn’t say it’s expensive but it’s over priced in my opinion. I’m not sure what crowd Target or Blu Dot are attempting to market to; maybe a bachelor mechanic or laborer? Or maybe even the elusive hipster? Who knows but I don’t envision anyone buying this for anything more than a novelty. But to that person I say, “Hold up! Wait a minute! Before you buy Target’s TOO by Blu Dot Duct Tape Collection let me present you with a cost saving DIY.”
Let’s break down the Target’s TOO by Blu Dot Duct Tape Collection first.
Get the look:
So for $50 you can own Target’s TOO by Blu Dot Duct Tape Collection. Now let’s take a look at a very simple DIY. All you need is a roll of duct tape and some plane white dinnerware. All you have to do is apply the duct tape exactly how it is in Target’s TOO by Blu Dot Duct Tape Collection! And voila! You’ve saved $29.20. You could save yourself even more by avoiding this look all together but just in case you need it here’s how you can get the look for less:
