Missoni Madness at Target!

By now, I am sure most of you have heard about the insanity that is the Missoni for Target collection. Many of the items sold out within the first 15 minutes, items are being sold on eBay for 4 times the retail price, and Target's website crashed for the majority of Tuesday.

Honestly, I wasn't very excited about the clothing aspect of the line. The clothing was OK, but I wasn't blown away. Also, there was nothing past a very small size XL. I am getting a bit fed up with designers not including us plus size girls in the equation.

Now, I will admit I dropped some bank on the housewares portion of the line. I arrived at the store around 8:30 and saw this almost empty display (after I grabbed my two pillows and a throw)


A Target sales associate informed me that a customer had dropped $2800 that morning for her sister who lives in Chicago, where the lines were wrapped around the block. I think the customer was just stocking up for eBay, lol.

Here are some more Missoni nuggets.

Fabulous dishes
Obsessed with the vases

Cute cosmetic bags and hair stuff
More rad accessories

What did I scoop up for myself? See my faves below:

The pillows are MINE!

I came back the next day for the vase, couldn't resist it.

So, what did you think of the Missoni for Target line? I will be hosting a giveaway next week that will feature a Missoni nugget :)

Well readers, I am off to Florida until Monday for a mini vay-cay. Can't wait to see my fam and friends:)

Have a good one!

  1. i'm not a missoni fan, so i really didn't care about the collection. their prints do nothing for me. but some of the household items were cute. i didn't venture to my targets to get anything, though, but i would guess there wasn't a mad rush in northeast pennsylvania for missoni stuff!

  7. Lucky you!! My target was sold out 20 minutes after they opened. I was able to find a few pieces at a different target, but I wasn't a fan really. I love the vase you scored!!

  8. I don't know if I'd scoop up much, but I love looking at all the pieces! Seems like you had a great selection! If only I had a Target nearby...*sigh*.
