In case you were wondering, I did purchase a couple items from the new collection by Jason Wu for Target. And while it didn't create the same craze as Missoni, I do think it was a fun experience. Allow me to share how I came upon February 5th...
The alarm goes off at 6:45am, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The home of my dear friend K.
D and I are in town visiting K, and we had a delightful time the night prior celebrating my 33rd bday. Food and drinks were highly involved.
D was wise enough to remind me that I could purchase online without facing the store and all the impending chaos. K was totally up for the challenge. Said she would drive me to any Target my heart desired. (true friendship abounded!)
The alarm goes off to remind me that it's Jason Wu shopping time.
D gets on her iPad. I climb into bed with K to check things out on her laptop. We all successfully shopped at 7am with a fairly good selection online. The shopping gods had mercy on my sleep deprived self.
Fast forward to Friday, February 10th. Mail day! And my Jason Wu arrived!
Here's what I got:
A lovely tote bag (sold out now) & this pinwheel dress
Now because my mom also is obsessed with Target as much as I am, she also scoured her local store for the collection and came up with this top:
She decided that it wasn't quite right for her...so off to Boston it went! And that completes my collection :) I must say, I found the quality to be pretty good (although I wish the dress and top were lined). In the warmer months, these will feel just right. And the tote...I could go on and on...the perfect size and love the straw fabric.
Another bulls-eye Target!
