At midnight last night I was actually in bed *surprise* but awake on my iphone checking the Target website to see if the Missoni stuff was available yet. Nothing so I went to sleepyland. This morning I stirred around 6:40 am so I checked again *I literally slept with my phone in my hand, you ever do that?* and the site was down. I did see an article online about how the Target pop up store Missoni launch in New York sold out in like minutes. Anyone who knows me knows that I only get up early *before 9* for the few following reasons: I have a flight to catch, I am going to Disneyland or Olivia has a pediatrician appt *which tomorrow she has* so I woke up around 9:15 and got straight out of bed because today is Missoni day! I had to go to the post office *which in retrospect, I regret going to first* to send an order of chalkboard signs *etsy shop plug* and mail Carlos & Stephanie’s marriage license *IT’S OFFICIAL!*
So it was 9:59 am when I walked into my local Target. I knew it was a bad sign when there was no shopping carts in the front of the store. Women were literally running in the store. It felt like Black Friday when the crazy people try to buy that one flat screen tv at Walmart for $200. This is what I saw when walked in…
Believe it or not I was actually hopeful when I saw those fugly coats left because behind there were some sweaters. I should have known better cause they were all Mossimo
In the home furniture department…
There was a woman at the registers with a black and white Missoni suitcase and I heard people saying they would buy it from her in the parking lot. I saw about 8 women with their shopping carts filled to the top with Missoni stuff, shoes, clothes, rugs, pillows, frames. They gathered in a circle and were trading stuff among each other. I walked past them several times hoping they would set aside something for me to grab but they just grinned like Cheshire cats with pleasure. They know they hit the jackpot. They pretty much cleaned out the shelves and I heard one of them say, “I grabbed the last blanket out of the Target guys hand when he put them out” Bitch! It was so hard not to grab her cart and run away. I decided to go upstairs to and see what was going on in the childrens clothing section.
Well, hello there!
I know, Missoni cape jackpot right? however they were $43.99 each and all size large in big girl.
It may look like there’s tons of stuff but it is all BIG girl sizes. Now normally I would’ve grabbed everything off those racks so fast and ebay them in a heartbeat, but I spoke to the woman who checked me out told me that even with all the looney business happening today, in a few weeks folks will start returning stuff and it will all go on clearance. That’s when I will strike. Strike hard I shall! But don’t think I walked away empty-handed. I found some treasures in Liv’s size that I am very pleased with.
Liv seems to like her new clothes
I don’t even know if I am ready to take the tags off. It’s like the time when I took my Grandma’s wedding ring when I was in middle school and accidently left my precious heirloom in a soap dish at a Coco’s restaurant in Palm Springs.
Mommy did good?
