You may have heard about Target’s latest designer collaboration: Jason Wu for Target. As with most of these collaborations, there was a lot of hype before the launch as well as speculation on whether or not people would love the line.
When the lookbook was first unveiled, I was in love. The pieces looked classic, simple and elegant. This led me to my first-ever Target launch experience, and oh what an experience it was.
I decided to get to Target last Sunday right at 8 am (the time my local Target would open their doors). No surprise but I found myself running late and made it there around 8:05. Friends and fellow bloggers, Erin of Reality Chic and Righting Style, and Megan of Disco Toes were there in time to see a line outside the door before it opened.
At this point you’re probably thinking, “8:05? Big deal!” That’s where you would be wrong. When I walked in there were no pieces left in anything smaller than a Large and all of the accessories (read: adorable scarves and bags) were already gone. Sad face. About 15 girls filled the dressing rooms trying on everything they could get their hands on. I hung around until their items cycled through and finally got my hands on two pieces.
First was the dress seen here with a blue cardigan. I tried this on in a small. I have to be honest I really wanted to like this but it had about 3 inches too much fabric in the waist and the waist was about 3 inches too high for me. Ultimately, it was a large small, yet made for short people. Very confusing.
I tried on this dress (belt included) in a medium. Oh lordy. I typically wear mediums at the average retailer but this was HUGE on me. I mean, I was swimming in it! I’m sure this look would look great in the appropriate size for someone with large boobs but that was not me on Sunday. I couldn’t even give it a chance given how off the sizing was.
There were definitely a couple of looks I would have loved to snatch up if the size had been right. Here are a few firsthand shots I grabbed before security not-so-kindly asked me to stop taking photos.
