Yes, yes we did go to Target on Tuesday morning when the collection launched. And by "we," I mean me and an entire crew of fashionistas and fashion writers who should've known better. Not even our always-fully-stocked "secret" Target in Tarrant County was able to hang onto the Missoni for Target pieces long enough for us to arrive, which is how we ended up in Waxahatchie. No, I'm not kidding.
And even in the middle of literally nowhere, the racks and shelves were already sparse by 10:30 a.m.; apparently, two eBay "entrepreneurs" had bought nearly $7,000 worth of the merch at open. Again, not kidding.
Clockwise from top left: sleeveless sweater dress, $54.99; suede pumps, $39.99; Familiga oblong pillow, $29.99; strappy sweater dress, $54.99; chiffon and knit sweater, $44.99; multi-color chemise dress, $29.99; zig zag beanie, $16.99; girl's purple leggings, $24.99; candles, $12.99; girl's sweater skirt, $24.99
Our haul wasn't quite as ridiculously extravagant as we'd hoped during the hour it took to get there, but still, amaze. Seriously, seriously worth the absurdity that was Target's most hyped collection since Rodarte. Mission Missoni = definite success. One last little secret … some of my favorite pieces came from the kid's department. Trust.
PS: We hear that restocking may happen on Thursday, for the Waxahatchie store anyway; will update once we contact our "source," yay! Also, the adorable dishes and cups aren't even online; see also, the presh wine holders. It's worth a store trip just for those items :)
