So, the Jason Wu for Target Collection dropped in stores yesterday, and I dropped the ball. I had been anxiously awaiting the release of Jason's "Gamine Chic" collection ever since I caught wind of the news in late December. While other people were preparing for the Superbowl, I was mentally preparing to virtually tackle any online shopper who got in my way on my sprint to the end zone.
But on Saturday, sometime around midnight, instead of constantly hitting refresh on Target.com until I was able to browse and throw gamine garments into my shopping cart, I fell asleep.
I Wu the day I fell asleep.
Out of all the Target designer collaborations, this one was the most up my alley. Inspired by French new-wave films and the queen of gamine, actress Jean Seberg, Jason Wooed me with a versatile range of girlie pieces and accessories, from pleated skirts and floral dresses to flowy scarves and structured totes, with every item priced under $60.
I had my eye on a demure straw clutch and a ladylike navy poplin A-line dress that were both sold out online way before my eyelids fluttered open come Sunday morning at 8am. A quick trip to my local Target left me feeling wuzy, sad, and staring at a few practically empty racks housing only a few stray L and XL dresses and tops.
If you ended up scoring some pretty things, I'm not bitter. Wu hoo for you.
Oh yeah, and go Giants.
