MISSONI for Target: My Mini Collection!

14 Sep


Target & MISSONI completely out did themselves! This has to be the most brilliant Target collaboration to date! I found myself repeatedly saying "oh that's cute" or "aw I like this one too". I woke up at 4:30am in the morning to discover that Target.com was not working properly. Oh sure you could order everything your little MISSONI heart desired but forget about being able to pay. Once you clicked checkout, the site would crash. It was so frustrating especially when all I wanted was the MISSONI throw! I didn't care about anything else other than getting my hands on that zigzag printed blanket. Boy was that a challenge! I arrived at the Target store 8am sharp (thanks to Lesley for driving)! As soon as I stepped foot into the store, I turned to a Sales Associate, and said "which way to the MISSONI blankets"? I saw the direction he was pointing in and made a mad dash to the shelf loaded with blankets. Another woman was trailing me so I did what any normal fashion crazed person would do. I swiped the shelf clean. I panicked and brought all 3! After grabbing all the blankets, it was game on! I went crazy! I began grabbing sweaters, shoes, dishes, cosmetic cases, and hair pins. Anything with a zigzag print was chucked into my shopping cart. In the end I limited myself to – oh just a few things. I'm so thankful and excited about my purchase!!! Big shout out to my lovely friends on Facebook (Laura, Sonja, & Nicole)! I think Mark Zuckerberg would be very pleased to learn that his billion dollar social networking site played a huge role in us scoring our MISSONI gems!

Thanks to my buddy Van for helping me out in a major way! I sure am thanking a lot of people. This was definitely a team effort!

    I just moved & was so excited to get a couple of pillows for the new couch & a throw for me since I’m always cold… To no avail. I got up and decided to put some dishes, I thought to myself I can’t wait for my M for T plates… Then it hit me, it was the 13th, they were on sale. I threw on some comfy clothes and dashed to my local Target. I was shocked at the calm in the store, until I realized at 9:50am everything except for the 4 cups I found was gone. SMH I was so disappointed in myself for not remembering & sickened when I checked eBay & saw the pillows & throws on sale for 3x the price : ( Everyone feels the same but I hope I win your throw!

  24. Kristi Hawks September 18, 2011 at 9:34 am #

    You scored big time. I’m obsessed with that throw and call ALL my local targets daily to see if one may have found its way back in. So sweet of you to give it away!

    This throw would look gorgeous in my daughter’s room! Hope I win! πŸ™‚

    What a beautiful Missoni collection! I can’t do opening day of any fashion launch. It’s just too crazy especially in NYC. I am happy for people who got the Missoni collection for their own enjoyment rather than selling them on ebay. Thank you for having a giving away on your site. Soo groovy!
