AKA... Part of my quest to break out of the Mom-Uniform
I can't remember when Missoni first caught my eye but I'm going to guess it was in a magazine what feels like a million years ago!
You can of course imagine that I rejoiced and celebrated with many others when it was announced that my favorite store (Target - duh) was set to debut a line this Fall.
I stalked the look books on fashion sites, texted with some of my girlfriends for weeks, plotting about the morning of September 13th.
I decided to hoof it rather than trying to go through Target.com and hit up my local Target at 8am on Tuesday morning. There were a bunch of other ladies, some nice, some snooty - but no fights broke out like what I heard happened in a California Target. I saw a few overly full carts that were clearly headed home to be put up on eBay.
I was lucky though! I got everything I wanted and then some! My haul - 2 Dresses, 2 cardigans, a ruana, flats and heels!
And then today I fell in love with this gem! Thanks to my Twitter friends, I decided I *needed* it!
I'm on the fence about a couple pieces, luckily I have a mom-friend coming over for a playdate tomorrow and to assess the dress situation! I'll let y'all know what I end up keeping and what goes back!
Did you score any Missoni for Target? Did you think the website crashing was a marketing ploy? Because I totally do! Regardless, well done Target, well done!
