A few bloggers that I follow had been tweeting from the shows and I was exhausted for them.
The timing of Fashion Week was perfect for this week's roll out of Missoni for Target's highly hyped debut on Tuesday. When my alarm went off in the am, I convinced myself that there would still be stuff left when I got there and online. Then..the tweets let me know how wrong I was. The website crashed, this is particularly intersting since for years their site was run by Amazon and they just revamped it in time for the Missoni launch. Maybe if they had kept things as they were, no one would have had to see the little dog on the site telling them they were quite popular! A few of my friends scored big and were thrilled with the pieces. This was a conversation on Facebook about it. I just about died laughing...
They were fighting at my target! I was with Max and it was not safe! I got my boots though! I was there when the doors opened at 8am yesterday.....there was a mad dash.....like lions going in for the kill!
This lady ran up, hugged the rack of clothes, lifted them and ran for the register....well attempted to run, when another lady slapped her upside the head and grabbed a hanger from her arms....it went down like Warriors! It was CRAZY!!!!!
Go back and check the returns. I didn't even know about Missoni but heard this morning and I was there for a different return and there was a pile of Missoni returns.
No kidding!!!! I saw 3 separate women with CARTS FULL of stuff....clothes, boxes, pillows, hair accessories...you name it! I couldn't believe! this one woman was obsessed!!!!!!!!
There was literally not ONE thing left in the store. They put it out this morning and it was gone w/in 3 hrs.! And the site crashed like 5 x's throughout the day. Insane! They may, or may not, be getting a new shipment in. It's like the Calypso line during the summer. Once it's gone, it's gone!
So, hopefully you were successful in getting some Missoni goods this week. There is TONS of it on eBay..when the fever dies down, so will the prices. By then, you might be sick of seeing everyone wear the same pieces around town!
