That being said, I'm as big a Mombie as anyone, and a longtime Missoni-loving-on-a-Target-budget one at that. And so it was that Master P & I sped off in the Trophy Wife Wagon this morning pre-music class to investigate. I returned those ZARA tees, so I had some wiggle room in the Pretty budget for some Operation MILF tees and flats.
To be concise - for once - the collection reminded me of past Target/designer collaborations: (1) the clothing quality is iffy, especially considering the 20-30% markup over normal Target prices; yet (2) there are some darling shoes & housewares to be had:
|Left: "Pasione Train Case" ($24.99) / Right: "Zig-Zag Pattern Flats" ($29.99); both available online as of this writing|
|(Train case interior)|
The clothing I saw, however, included some mumsy, unflattering cuts, flimsy materials and a few technicolor pairings at which even a diehard Missoni fan would raise a manicured brow. For the elevated collection prices, the quality just isn't there.
If you're simply chomping at your Gucci bit to get your hands on some of this collection, head to the shoe & housewares departments; my favorites of what I saw - what was left, that is - included these:
|Left: Appetizer Plates ($2.99) / Zig Zag Rain Boots ($34.99) ; both available online as of this writing|
Did anyone else brave the Target retail danger & live to tell the tale today?
