All of my shipments have arrived! Sadly, I did have one item canceled by Target, the white long sleeve blouse. I thought it would look really cute with the black pleated skirt that I bought in the store, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. The blouse was an online exclusive item, so there’s likely no chance of finding one now. But I can’t complain because I managed to score the navy poplin dress in a size 4, and it fits perfectly! I loved this dress in the lookbook and was so disappointed when it was sold out online and not available in my local stores. Fortunately, I was able to purchase it Monday night when Target restocked them online. This dress is by far my favorite piece in the Jason Wu collection. I love the full skirt and the detailing on the bodice–and it has pockets!
My second favorite garment is the cream colored cycle print dress with pearls. It is so pretty and feminine. I love the colors and the flutter sleeves. This is another item that I was able to buy when Target restocked it online. I also really like the navy floral dress. The style is flattering on girls with curves…but it definitely needs a belt!
Some of my online purchases were not as successful. I bought the red jersey dress and have already returned it. The fabric was completely see-through and felt very fragile. I think it would have fallen apart the first time I washed it — or even wore it! Plus it just looked like a long, shapeless t-shirt. I also returned the straw saddle bag. It felt kind of flimsy and I thought the faux black leather looked cheap. I am debating whether to return the navy shirt dress. It looked so chic on Alexa Chung in Vogue. Maybe I just need Vogue’s team of stylists to help me pull it off. Probably not going to happen…
Overall, this was a much more relaxing experience compared to Missoni. I think Target has made a lot of improvements. I’m looking forward to more designer collections in the future — here’s hoping for Alexander Wang or Prabal Gurung!
