Confession time, I am a total holiday nerd. Seriously, I geek out for ALL holidays but I get especially excited for Christmas. Trimming the tree, decorating the house, watching corny movies, baking, and all that jazz gets me pumped. Oh yeah and the presents. Yes I am 34 years old and I still get excited for presents.
Last week TOMs and Target got me into the holiday spirit a bit early by sending me a beautifully wrapped gift (this baby was stunning). I of course ripped it open. Like I’m waiting until Christmas … Inside? A two-headed sweater! Not gonna lie, I definitely had a WTF moment until I read the card.
TOMS, a company known for giving, cooked up a fun campaign to promote their new line at Target. For every piece of TOMS for Target that is purchased, they will match that purchase with a blanket, a meal, or shoes to someone in need. How fantastic is that? A good cause and a goofy holiday sweater? I’m sold.
I recruited my dog Yohji and my assistant (she’s under the sweater holding up Yohji – her idea not mine!) for fun photo opp. Pretty sure this needs to be on a Christmas card. Also, I kinda want to wear this sweater all the time … in the privacy of my home.
Crazy sweater aside, I actually really like the collection. I purchased a few items for myself, for friends, and for clients. I purchased the men’s striped tee shirt for myself. the cool zip pouch a receipt holder for my active styling jobs, and some of the awesome scarves for my clients.
Best part of all, these pieces are literally the gifts that keep on giving.
Toms For Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+Toms limited edition gift you buy, we’re (Target) giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. #TomsForTarget
