My fellow bloggers Valerie and Carolyn and I were lucky enough to hit Target yesterday when the doors opened for the sale of Jason Wu's Target collection. Valerie secured a place for us in line at 7 AM. We were 5th in a line of about 50 people. 5 minutes before the doors opened a Target Security employee let us know where the Wu merchandise was located and encouraged everyone to play nice. It was a very fun experience. For the most part shoppers were kind and respectful. I saw several people trading and/or giving away fashions that they had secured but did not want. There didn't seem to be anyone grabbing cartfuls of merchandise for resale. I was very impressed with the collection. The pieces are classic with feminine detailing. All except one of the clothing items I purchased are machine washable. Of course, the prices were very reasonable, too.
On to my favorites:
This floral print handbag can be worn cross-body with the removeable strap or carried by the blue faux-leather handle. There are several interior pockets and a back zippered compartment. I love the detail in the metal clasp. It's just darling....
Next is this black flared dress which is quite similar to Poppy Parker's Holiday in the Hamptons dress. It is fully lined and has a pretty tulle underskirt peeking out from the hemline.
Next up is blue short-sleeve blouse with white dots. This will go great with white pants, skinny jeans, or a short white skirt.
I'm sure Target is sold-out of just about everything at this point but don't worry there are plenty available on the secondary market. If you'd like to see more photos from this collection check out my flickr.
