Beware the Target bill this week. The Shops at Target debuts Sunday, May 6 with fresh, affordable products Target has co-created with five stand-out specialty stores from around the country. There are nearly 400 items in all, ranging from $1 for a nail file to $159.99 for a pouf for the home. I asked the owners of the five partner stores to pick their favorite items from the collections. The Webster is a Miami Beach boutique known for its highly curated mix of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and luxury accessories. The Webster at Target includes Miami-inspired apparel and accessories for women, men, kids and baby.
