i didn’t really plan on getting anything from the jason wu for target collection. but then i saw a commercial right before bed and decided i would just go check it out in the morning. when we got there, there were just a few people in line and everyone joked about elbowing and pepper spraying. and then when the door opened, i felt a lady SPEED WALK past me and it was on! they only had a couple of sizes in each piece but i walked away with the pleated stripe shift dress, the pleated skirt and the cream/black straw satchel. i also had the floral print satchel but decided i didn’t need both. then my mom surprised me and snuck out to buy me the floral one while i was in the dressing room (thanks mom…you spoil me)! so did you get anything from the jason wu collection? how was the selection/crowd at your store???

p.s. i am also one of the crazy people that set their alarm to wake up in the middle of the night to get my hands on this missoni for target skirt and this tucker for target dress.

    Aww, I bought the black pleated skirt, but it was not cute on me – have to return it today! 🙁 By the time I got to my store after church, there was not much left (at least in my size). Can’t wait to see how you wear your new pieces!

    I bought the black pleated skirt too! 🙂 I did all my shopping online and was up at like 1am trying to buy items before the sold out. I got almost everything I wanted except the navy poplin dress!

    I got to the store at 10AM and there was slim pickins left at the store. Not a huge deal, since I had to go to Target anyway. Thought that dress was very cute!

    I left with nothing. My store didn’t have that dress (I am sure you will look great in it). I had issues with sizing. Don’t you love moms that spoil us. Can’t wait to see how you wear each piece.

    I was so excited to see Jason Wu partnership with Target but am very disappointed that the same thing happened with this line as what had happened with Missoni. Gone before I got there and I went to 2 Targets yesterday. Damn resellers.
    Anyways I love what you got. Especially the dress and both bags. Classic and Sassy.

    What a beautiful collection. I think my sister was able to snag that gorgeous satchel as well. Me? not so lucky. I believe this may be my favourite [affordable] collaboration so far.

    I love that dress!! I was obsessed with the snippits of the collection that were released on the web/in commercials but ended up feeling like crap on Sunday so I didn’t go. I checked online but didn’t feel all that compelled by what was available to purchase there, either. sigh. I guess I’m kind of out of a shopping mood…? (this is a desperate cry for help. LOL)

    btw – that straw satchel is fab!!

    I’m so glad you bought the pleated shirt – it’s probably my favorite piece from the collection. Can’t wait to see you in it! I didn’t venture out to my local Target on Sunday… but hopefully, I’ll be able to nab something online!

    I didn’t see that bag!! Cute. I got the pleated skirt, the cat tee, the black dress with lace under, the peach blouse and the dress with pearls at the neck! I was not planning on getting this much! Oh well I love it!
