Jason Wu Madness

Posted: February 5, 2012 in Accessories, Shopping, Wardrobe

Today Jason Wu’s collection for Target hit the stores. I am not ashamed to admit, I was ready to go by 6am but got held back by my family. We got the the Target store by 10am and there was literally nothing – one pleated skirt and a couple of neck-tie blouses but they looked awful and the skirt fit well but was the wrong length – it hit way above the knee but was not short enough to be classified as mini.

To be honest, not everything in the collection was to my liking. For instance those colorful purses are not appropriate for anyone past 15 years of age. I just can’t picture myself sporting one of those, even if I would be seriously intoxicated.

Then the famous cat bag – in my opinion it is a bit wacky and makes me think of a crazy cat lady (don’t get me wrong, I love cats! I mean I am the person who linked the words from the song “Every step I take”, “In the future can’t wait to see if you open up the gates for me” to the death of my cat who passed away few years earlier).
Then the straw bags – I think straw should be used for a basket type bag and not for a sleek elegant handbag. Just two opposing ideas for me. But that’s just my opinion, I am not forcing it upon anyone. Most of the neck-tie blouses were not to my liking as well, the only one I thought was worth any attention was the navy one. Unfortunatelly I didn’t find them neither online nor in any of the stores.

What I really loved was the t-shirts with lace print, navy sleeveless shift dress, all the scarfs (even the one with the abundance of cats:)), the adorable poplin dress with a red stripe, the pleated skirt (I have been on a hunt for one for as long as I can remember). At first I was not sure about the skirt because I didn’t feel the length was right but the girl I met in the dressing room convinced me otherwise. She knocked on the door of my stall to see the skirt and she made me see it was a keeper. I wish i could thank her now, because back then, in the heat of the moment I was not so sure.

Another little thing that found its way onto my heart was the print on the navy scarf and one of the dresses – a small wheel, just like the one on the gypsy flag. At least that’s my personal association.

Below are my today’s purchases from the above mentioned collection. The blue blouse we got for my mother-in-law, the navy scarf for my father’s wife, the grey t-shirt with lace print is for my lovely sister. I wish i could get something for my mother too, but neither style nor sizes are suitable for her. Mental note: to start getting on my mother’s case about eating healthy, exercising and taking better care of herself.

The dress with dot print (reminds me of a gypsy flag) found my husband. When we got to the store, practically everything was gone and this dress was returned by someone and immediately snatched by my awesome husband:))
