Hello Beautiful People!
I wanted to share a few word and images of the Missoni for Target items that I actually purchased at my local stores (Richmond and Pinole, Ca). It appears for once in my life…I am one of the lucky ones who got almost everything I wanted on my wish list! Well, everything that was available in stores….
The Target employees at the Pinole store were so over it when I rushed the store at 8am. They were actually rolling their eyes at me…one young girl asked me if I bought the bike because “that is the coolest thing.” Like I said, there were only three women shopping there for themselves then an older couple who I suspect were there to buy out the bedding and shower curtains. I didn’t want those pieces, but still…it was very shitty in my opinion. This whole Ebay mess is just beyond me. Seriously people? But I digress. Anyways, one of the Target employees (who was a little kinder about my enthusiasm) told me they only got ONE item of each style in each size. BUT overall…the quality of the clothes and home products seems really good. I was impressed that the socks are mostly cotton (yay for my feet) and not just 100% polyester. I hate polyester with the passion of 1,000 white hot suns. But that is a tangent for another day.
First the umbrella is super cute!! I seriously LUCKED out and got the pink/green zigzag pattern. There was only one hanging at 8:03am so I have to assume I got the only one. Stoked! While I was at the accessories I picked up the infinity scarf. I love that they used glittery black yarn as an accent…just enough sparkle without going overboard! I think I am going to use the head scarf on my purse.
The ballet flats are pretty flimsy but really adorable….I don’t think I will be wearing these outside in the rain.
when I was checking out the lady asked me if I needed the box for my ballet flats. Yes, I need the box! I am here at 8:00am–do you really think I am gonna let you keep the box to my Missoni shoes? Um, no.
The rugs are a-mazing! The colors in the purple floral pattern are so bold and lovely and both rugs are thick and plush.
I love these rugs and towels…so cute! I wish I could’ve bought the big towels too but I was being cost conscious (as much as I could possibly have been).
These are my accessories…I attend school in rainy SF so I was very excited about the umbrella (as I already mentioned). I bought the socks for the fashionable men in my life (hubby and Dad), and one pair of women’s socks for a girlfriend of mine in Paris–her bday is next month. She loves fashion too so I hope she will be excited.
Below is a Camisole that I purchase in size XL but alas it is too large for me. Again sizes run large. I am going to try to trade it on the Locked out of Missoni – Fair Trade Here Facebook page. There is a lot of merchandise to be traded on this page and these are not money hawks but real people who are not trying to profit.
Overall I am pretty happy…except I really wanted the multicolor sweater dress ($55) that was only available on-line. It is still listed as out of stock and I refuse to even price check items on eBay. If anyone has a medium I will please buy it from you!
Also, this morning I received an email from Target stating my shipment of the sleeveless multicolor sweater would be delayed one week. I am afraid it will be cancelled.
