Obsessed with: Missoni for Target

I am sure by now everyone may be a little sick of hearing about Missoni for Target.

Ok, so basically when Target has these designer events, I need to confess that I get a little stressed out.  I never know if I should wake up early and go online or head to the nearest store as soon as they open...

With Calypso, I got there about an hour after the store opened, and there was still tons available.  Although the home section was ransacked and I was unable to score the metallic pouf I had my eye on.

Tuesday morning, on my way to the store, I was on the telephone with a friend in Hoboken as she arrived at her Target.  She was so disappointed to see that there was literally nothing left.  I for sure thought it would be a different story at my Target here in Charleston.  I assumed that there would be tons still at my store, especially since I had gotten there just 30 minutes after store opening... well I was wrong.

I was able to score this amazing pillows, so I can't really complain.. but that was about it.  I saw some girl clothing for Tessa but wasn't sure, so I left with 3 pillows in tow.


(these are the best pictures I could get.  It is a rainy morning and there are a bunch of lazy ones of the sofa watching TV.) 

As embarrassed as I am to say, I thought I was over the Missoni-Mania, but found myself at a different Target location yesterday.  I had some time to spare before a doctor appointment, and thought it would be a good idea to see if there were any returns, or items leftover.   I did pretty well actually.

I score these pants for myself, which could be great for post-baby lounging but cute enough to run around town in with some ballet flats and a cardigan.

As for Ms. Tessa, I got her the ballet flats which I was unsure of at my first visit and this insane velvet coat.  I don't think the shoes will last long, but the coat is a definite keeper.

Did you get caught up in the madness?



  1. did i get caught up in the madness ?? oh yeah, i am caught up in the madness of how stylish that model ms tessa sidney is !! the coat is really something, but YAY for navy & white stripes ! ;)

    love the adorable lazy couch shot with those fabulous pillows too. xxx

  2. Thanks Kerr! The pillows are pretty cute, I could see them being your style! And Tessa loves the coat, at least it is finally starting to cool down so she can actually wear it! When she tried it on, it had to be 90 degrees out!

    Hope you are having a great weekend! xo.

  3. Yes! I had so much fun and I was totally shocked that so many others were into it. I set my I-phone alarm for 3 am (my hubby thought I was nuts) and was finally able to order my top picks then(throw/robe/hoodie/carry-on bag/blue-trim cardigan) When I eventually made it to my Target store at 9:05 am- after oversleeping due to a long night of internet/Target customer service in India-it was hand to hand combat for luggage.
