I don’t get as excited about the designer collaborations at Target as I did a few years ago. But the Rachel Comey for Target collection did spark my interest because she is a designer that I admire. So I logged onto Target.com during my daughter’s soccer game last week to see if any items were still in stock. Here is my review.
In the past I’ve stayed up crazy late to shop online at 3 am to ensure I could snag the best pieces. Clearly I failed at that plan (let’s be honest, I didn’t even try), but some interesting pieces were still available mid-morning. Also some items have since been restocked, so check the website again (or watch your store for returns) if you missed out.

I ordered the quilted jacket and animal print sweater. Later that night, I added a peach colored sweater and a pair of animal print jeans. The sweater has not arrived yet, so I will update this review later to add my thoughts on that piece.
First up, the coat. Quilted jackets are a hot trend right now (maybe it’s related to how we’ve all been basically homebodies, learning to sew and baking bread over the past year). I love the bright colors in the floral print design. Initially I ordered the medium because I typically size up for outerwear, so I can layer underneath. That was a mistake. This coat is enormous. I could have fit myself and my two daughters in that medium. Fortunately a local Target store still had the small in stock, so I could exchange it. The small fits much better, but it is still very long on me (almost floor length). I am only 5’3″. Currently debating if I should try to get it tailored or just return it. My overall review is that it seems good quality and looks really pretty (it matches my mums!), but definitely size down!
Second, the sweater. I absolutely adore it! Super soft, fun tiger print, oversized sleeves. It’s everything I need for fall and winter. This is my favorite piece from the collection. Again, I bought a medium, but unlike the coat, it fits me well.
Finally, the jeans. When I took them out of the package, I immediately thought, “Hmm, these might be really ugly.” It’s definitely a fine line. I will say that they photograph well. They look better in pictures than they look in person, IMO. These jeans are 100% cotton with no stretch. So if you are between sizes like me right now, size up for comfort. I ordered a size 6, my typical Target jean size, and they are tight on me in the waist. Debating if I want to try the 8 or return them. Also, they hit me at the bottom of the ankle; I wish they were an inch or two shorter.
Three other designers were also featured in the fall collection. Did you pick up any great pieces?
