Sooo....What'd ya get?
I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I woke up at 5:30am and feverishly logged onto the Target website to obtain my goods. I'm probably even more embarrassed to admit that I made Rob go to Target with me at 9:30pm last night to stalk the shelves and see if they'd prematurely set out any of the Missoni wares--no dice. He did find a nice Converse man jacket though.And ice cream. Kudos.
Luckily, I feel like I was one of the chosen few this morning that were actually able to get through to the website and snag the items I've been coveting (fingers crossed they actually process/ship/get to me). Sadly, it sounds like others had a little more difficulty. Now, I love Target more than most things in life, so I hate to speak ill of the wondrous corporation, but Shame on you, Tarjay! I figured there would be a couple technical issues, due to the sheer size of the event, but never imagined that the entire site would just say "Woof!" for 8 hours.Here's to hoping it gets back up and running soon, so others can share in all of the zig-zaggy goodness.
Moving on...After I secured the "A-team" online, I headed to my local Target store to see it all in real life. In all of the Target + Designer collaborations, I've never seen such a sight. 40+ ladies standing outside Target at 7:45am. It looked as if a hurricane was coming (...I wish!) and Target was the only place that had batteries and bottled water. When the poor Target employee came to unlock the doors at exactly 8:00am, I saw the fear in her eyes that she was about to get trampled. And she kind of did. Sorry 'bout that. Girls ran through the doors like their hair was on fire and started grabbing at any piece of anything that they could grab. I loaded up on a few more items that I hadn't gotten online (mainly dishware, some shoes, a dress, etc..) and then went on my merry way. I feel like Target employees are going to need a serious cocktail after the beating they probably endured today. Here, I'll serve it to you out of my new Missoni martini set. Would you like that shaken or stirred?
**Pictures to come soon of my goods! Once I come out of my shopping haze and assess what I actually bought...
