Missoni Madness

Hey, did you know Missoni had a line with Target?
Ok. Bad joke. I know almost everyone had the same ridiculous experience I had, and I'd said I'd do a post on it but there's nothing to say that hasn't already been said. Target handled everything about this launch wrong, and since it's running until October 22, I hope they redeem themselves in some way. Stores are still getting shipments, and I know my local Target has, so hopefully stores around you will, too and you can get something in the collection if you wanted it. All that said, here's what I got from the collection:

After the website crashing debacle, I went to the store a few minutes after it opened. There was a pretty decent selection (at the time). The flats had been on my list since I'd seen the look book, but I wanted to see them and the clothes in person before deciding on anything. This cardigan was my favorite. Online I did like a couple of the dresses, but I never saw any in my store. A long, neutral cardigan is something I'll get more wear out of in the upcoming months anyway.

On Friday we had to stop at Target to get Jared some medicine, and low and behold, they had restocked the home section. I was eyeing this bedding and Jared said he liked it better than what we had in the guest bedroom. I need very little encouragement, so we picked it up. 

What (if anything) were you able to pick up from Missoni for Target?

The bedding looks great!
I'd really wanted some of the throw pillows, but I've yet to find any online or in the store...

I saw the flats and they were adorable but of course no sizes! And I stopped by the women's and the rack was completely empty. This was 3 hours after store opening. Oh well. But I did pop back in this week and surprisingly there were a few items...must have restocked.

Oooh great bedding! :D
And I got a bathing suit, dress, tank top, skirt and flats...but Im not keeping it all....I'm still a bit angry (like Carrie) that it is taking so long to ship, I FINALLY got my notification last night, so by the time it comes I will probably be really cranky and not want to look at any of it...

I got the shoes too. I fear they might not be super comfy, but cute. I've been really wanting that libg cardi. There is a men's one I wanted to, for me. But it was snatched from under my grasp :(

I went to look for scraps the next day and there was nothing - I'm glad you got something though and that cardigan definitely seems like a solid investment.

Nothing! I wanted the flats and a few pillows, but alas... Glad you were able to get some pieces! the bedding is lovely :)

Faye said...

I wish they hadf this in the UK. I love Missoni!

Ashleigh said...

Haha, Missoni is still a sensitive subject ;)You got the bedding?? Whahooo! It's fab!!
Honestly, I didn't even try. Once I heard about the site being down that day I figured the stores didn't stand a chance. Maybe I can buy it on ebay for 10x worth the retail value. Not!!

Got that cardigan too! There is still stuff at both the Targets here so I ended up picking up some bowls and a plate for some desk organization.

That cardigan is darling, and I absolutely love the new guest bedroom! I haven't picked up anything, but I just decided the frustration wasn't worth it!

Rhiannon {Hey Gorg} said...

I haven't gotten myself anything yet either! It seems so overwhelming just trying to get my hands on something. But you found some adorable things :)

Fashion Meets Food said...

You know I went every where looking for flats. I finally found them and they ended up giving me serious toe cleavage I so was not about it. It was such a bummer.

Tiffany said...

love the bedding you got!

I got those shoes too but ended up getting the kids size since the adult ones were totally sold out at my store. And my mom picked up a cardigan for me. I got other stuff too but not sure if I"m keeping it, I got caught up in the hype and bought everything!

this free bird said...

I do *REALLY* like that bedding and it's the one thing I'm kicking myself for not purchasing. The rest of it Katie, what I've received anyway, RETURNING today.

Prepare to see me on the 6 o'clock news. I'll be the one crying in the corner as they refuse to honor my return.

B*tches.

I love that bedding you chose. I ended up with one of the tote bags and the hat. Both of which I really like. xo

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oooh great scores! The only thing I was able to get was a pair of tights. That was ALL they had left!

Have a great weekend! xoxo

The bedding looks fantastic! The only thing I wanted from the collection was the chevron cocktail shaker. Of course it ended up being an online-only item and sold out immediately. Thanks, Target. Grrr...

Shea said...

Ooh I love what you got, especially that cardigan! I didn't try to buy anything the day Missoni launched, I just planned to go to the store to look when I had the chance. They had the black pumps with chevron detail the first time I went, and I talked myself out of them. But I went back this weekend and they were still there--I took it as a sign, and bought them!

Kavery said...

Everything looked so good in the September Vogue - guess that's why it all sold out!

Bonnie said...

I have yet to actually see any of the Missoni items in person because I haven't cared enough to go to Target. I'm a bad fashionista.
... Those ballet flats are super damn cute, though.

I got the black maxi skirt and some hair stuff. I think i'm taking them back though, because I'm pretty sure I just got caught up in the hoopla and didn't really love it for what it cost...still thinking though.

I really wanted to the blanket...in the color famiglia. Maybe it'll appear magically online or in a store. my store seems to be saying they're not getting anymore shipments.

Sovina said...

Elle Sees said...

I did but wanted the espresso set and a scarf. Got neither! Got the same shoes and cardigan you did! And a bag (gift) and the bowl. And a friend got me a mug when I told her I wanted the espresso set.
