By now you’re pretty tired of hearing about everyone’s fab finds but I’ve stayed up far too long from tweeting the direct links to many Target items to support the social shopping experience and it was a blast! but I have not slept since midnight and it’s been a day and a half after pulling an all nighter!
Running on pure adrenaline from the whole experience, I dragged myself out of my house to my local Target to get my hands on the coveted pieces. Even though I live in a pretty heavily populated city, the advantage of living on the outskirts in the suburbs is that my Target isn’t consumed with as many fashionistas camping out in the wee hours in the morning. In fact, if it wasn’t for the social shopping experience a few hours prior, I would have thought that I had the wrong release date due to the small amount of cars in the parking lot. More for me.
One thing’s for sure, people are very civil in my city. I tip-toed-into the store where a few other shoppers were, as we courteously assisted each other to exchange complimentary remarks of ‘oooohh oh, how cute!’. I even offered to assist the Target employee with the signage visuals for set-up since I vividly remember the fond and horrific memories as a visual merchandiser myself. At one point I even had the entire dressing room to myself!
Lesson: The designer launch was a two-fold experience of an exhilarating online shopping experience for some that fostered a sense of community versus an in your face, hands on retail shopping experience-definitely not for the faint of heart.
Anyhoo…I’m kinda tired as I am writing this sooooooo without further adieu, here are my finds from Target! I’ll do a review in two days for Target Tuesdays when I actually suggest how to style the outfits to your own liking!
