My Jason Wu for Target Goodies

February 6, 2012

Hello dolls! I hope you had a great weekend & are having a great Monday so far! I wanted to post today about the Jason Wu for Target goodies I scored yesterday! The Jason Wu for Target collection hit stores yesterday as you might have read about in my post HERE. I wasn’t an over-the-top fashionista who stood in line at 8:00 am Sunday morning but I definitely was hoping they had items left by the time I arrived at Target. On my quest to score some Wu items, I ended up stopping in 2 different Target stores. The first Target was in Knoxville and I was VERY disappointed when I got there & found a small, picked-over display. There were no accessories to be found… the purses had sold out at 8:03 am according to one of the sales ladies (they opened at 8:00 am!).

The Knoxville Target had a total of only 3 Jason Wu displays...and most of the items were picked over!

Despite the limited selection, I tried on a few things…a couple of dresses and a shirt. Just a word about the sizing of the collection: a lot of the clothing runs big. I tried on two dresses both in x-small and they were too big! I was really disappointed that the red t-shirt dress didn’t fit because it looked so cute in the look book. It just goes to show how you can NEVER go by the size on a tag but rather always go by the way something looks ON you!!!

I would include the pictures of me in these dresses but I looked like a little girl playing dress-up in adult clothes haha so I just thought I'd show you a picture of the dresses on the hangers....

Needles to say I didn’t buy them since they were too big. The only thing I ended up buying at the Knoxville Target was this grey t-shirt with lace detail. A lot of his collection featured lace which I LOVE…so girly and feminine.

First Jason Wu purchase: grey t-shirt with lace print! 

So leaving the Knoxville store rather disappointed, I thought I would stop in the Chattanooga Target. I definitely hit the jackpot in my hometown & was SO excited to find a lot of things left that I had wanted!!!! I might've let out a woo-woo, I mean Wu-Wu!!!! Compared to Knoxville's 3 displays, the Chattanooga store had around 5 and had a great selection of sizes left....

The Chattanooga Target even had a great selection of purses! YAY!

Here is what I bought….

This black trench coat is ADORABLE and is the perfect light weight for spring. It has pink/black lace piping on it which adds a really cute touch and makes it a little different than your average black trench! Unfortunately it ran a little big (it was an x-small as well!) but I loved it so much I bought it anyway.

This short-sleeve tee with cat print is probably one of my favorite things I bought in the collection! This cat is named Milu and was Wu’s Parisian muse for the Target collection! Unfortunately they only had a medium left but I’m obsessed with the shirt so I bought it any way. Since it runs a little big I’m thinking I’ll be able to pair it with black leggings and a red sweater/heels!

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see they had purses left at the Chattanooga Target! I can’t wait to carry this flap satchel this spring/summer. It is a great size and I love the black/white color combination!

I was also super excited that this straw clutch was still in stock. It’s going to be the perfect casual oversized wristlet. LOVE!

Overall I was really happy with the Jason Wu for Target items I bought! They are going to be perfect to wear as the weather warms up.

It wasn’t nearly as picked over as the Missoni for Target line which I was very happy about AND I heard the Target website didn’t crash! Even better news, I saw onTwitter that Target is re-stocking some of their items online later this week so be sure to check back!

So will you be buying any of the Jason Wu for Target collection? Leave me a comment & let me know!!!
