Chip and Jo Jo Gaines are my second favorite couple on TV behind Beth and Randall Pearson. Not only do I enjoy their chemistry on set but I adore Joanna’s style. When I heard that the Gaines were releasing their Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia collection at Target, I added a reminder in my calendar and made sure that my bank account could handle any related spend.

Last year, Target brought us the charitable collaboration with FEED Projects. This year, everyone’s favorite retailer has partnered with the original “One-for-One” social enterprise to bring us the TOMS for Target collection. There are more than 50 items in the holiday collection, all under $50. I know that we’re all used to TOMS footwear, but there are also items like candles, blankets, and accessories for all.
The TOMS for Target collection has the potential to provide more than 11 million meals, blankets and shoes to those in need. Every purchase of clothing, accessory and home good purchase will lead to a donation of a blanket through the American Red Cross or Canadian Red Cross, or one week of meals through Feeding America or Food Banks Canada. And for every TOMS for Target pair of shoes sold, a pair will go to a child in need.
Take a look at some of my favorite items from the collection below. You can view all of the items here and head to your nearest Tarjay to get your hands on the goods.

Always pairing with new designers to roll out great lines, Target is now showing Uptown a little love, both literally and with its Harlem Designers Series collection. This limited-edition series, commemorates Target’s first Manhattan store located in East Harlem, and features designs from Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Stephen Burrows and chef and Chicago favorite Marcus Samuelsson.
Tar-jay will be donating 5 percent of each product’s purchase price to a Harlem non-profit of the designer’s choice. The colorful items range in price from $3.99 to $34.99 and will be available for purchase in the East Harlem store beginning July 25, followed by select stores and on Target.com on August 1.
The non-profit selected by the Toledos is El Museo del Barrio. Stephen Burrows selected The Fund for Public Schools in support of the library at The Young Women’s Leadership School of East Harlem. Marcus Samuelsson also chose to make a donation to public schools by selecting The Fund for Public Schools in support of the library at Harlem PS 180: Hugo Newman.
Here’s a sample of the collection:
That last dress makes me think of West Side Story. I feel like it belongs in the “America” scene.
