Today was the launch of Missoni's collection for Target...and I was quite late to the party. The website had overloaded early on, and by the time I arrived at the brick and mortar store everything was either picked over or gone. I made a compromise on a cardigan (XL-more like a coat on me) mainly because I was afraid it may all be gone forever...although I'm sure everything will be restocked and I am worrying for nothing. After all, if there is money to be made, they'll make it. Right?
After leaving Target (and taking a disappointing trip to Lowes) I headed to a couple of Goodwill stores and made out like a bandit! I don't know if it was a morning spent watching video and reading articles on Daphne Guinness or what, but I had clothes on the mind, and it's always better to spend less on more (although I am not about to pretend I have anything close to the style needed to be a part of Daphne's world).
|Horrors! I'm sure this is where all of the pillows I was NOT going to buy were located.|
|So I went to Goodwill. I am mad for plaid-especially preppy plaid from Ralph Lauren...|
|and Brooks Brothers...|
|...and J Crew! Oh my!|
|I also found this semi Missoni-like cardigan at Salvation Army several weeks ago.|
|And the real thing. This is the cardigan I bought today. I REALLY wanted the black one with the white zigzag, but am hoping (fingers crossed) that I can find it in my size later. Somewhere...|
