Missoni for Target- bitches be crazy!!!

did anyone else stop into their local Target to take a peak at the Missoni for Target collection?
did anyone else see bare racks & shelves at 9 o'clock in the am?
did anyone else see crazy women running around dumping entire racks of Missoni duds into their carts while yelling into their cell phones- "OMG GIRL! THIS STUFF IS AWESOME! WHAT DO YOU WANT!?!?!"

did anyone else pick up the last Missoni Tote bag off of the rack & then look around & realize that 10 other women are staring you down with what can only be described as pure envy & loathing in their eyes.

did you then clasp that tote to your chest & stutter an apology?

because i did.

i'm also 99% sure that every single one of those fashionable women were taking in my boat shoes, rolled up jeans & black t-shirt & wondering what the hell i was thinking even touching quasi designer duds. does she really think she can pull that off? puh-lease!

oy.

i, just like most other, love designers for Target. you get some trendy stuff at an affordable price & you walk around feeling pretty good about yourself. i heard about the Missoni for Target line & i had my eye on a couple things so i marked my calendar with a little reminder to stop in this morning.

i walked in & noticed zig zag & chevron galore. sweaters half off hangers, scarves strewn about, blankets & bedding in crumpled up piles, shoes everywhere. what the hell had happened in here?!

i gingerly made my way through the destruction & manged to grab the flats that i'd stopped in for. literally- those were the only things i wanted.



and for alex:

Missoni For Target Kids

the little girls section was quiet so i snuck down there & snagged 2 pieces for the girls. that's it- 2 pieces.

i eyed a pretty serving platter but quickly put it back- $20 says i'll never use it.

i did try on an interesting sweatshirt...but quickly took it off because the velor & zig zags were making my head hurt.

i fingered an ok sweater that i momentarily considered snagging- then i dropped it when i saw the $49 price tag. um- no.

i wound up with 2 pairs of flats (one for me, one for alex), 2 articles of clothing (for the girls) & the ever loving tote bag.

i took my meager haul up to the register & had to pick my jaw up off the floor as i watched the lady in front of me swipe her card for over $500 for a bunch of, frankly, ostentatious attire.

the girl checking her out didn't seem phased. i'm assuming this kind of spending was the norm. she gave me a tired smile & then arched her eyebrow at my less than impressive collection of things.

i am pleased to announce that everything fit into one bag. even the tote.

i walked out & sprinted to the safety of my vehicle. whew.

so- Missoni for Target. my opinion? eh. most of it is busted- lots of multi colored chevron & weird material. i'm honestly not sure how anyone can pull it off.

the children' stuff IS cute- because little girls look adorable in just about anything & the chevron flats will add a really cute pop to a simple outfit.

as for that tote bag- the tote bag that i may or may not have risked my life for- i think i'll probably return it. i only grabbed it on a whim & then held onto it in order to avoid causing a riot. i'm a good person like that- a peace keeper if you will.

you're welcome Target.
Pin It!

I am not a big fan of most of the Missoni line, but those flats are super cute! I guess it just seems like most of the tops are going to be out of style in a few months and I am a person who buys stuff that will last. How sweet are those toddler flats!!! I saw on twitter this morning that the person in front of her spent over $4,000 on Missoni stuff!!! Sheesh!

I just don't get what the hell the craze is all about.

mom and toddler flats = win in my book.

Thank God we don't have targets down here. I'm not sure if could have self control, specially for little girls.

I love the flats, but must admit that I have no idea what Massoni is...I'm really outta date like that I suppose. I'm glad you weren't hurt in the chaos :)

I went this morning & wasn't impressed with the collection (granted... most of it was gone by the time I got there at 10:30am). I did see those flats for women & toddlers & was about to snag some for Gigi, but her size was gone!
