here we go again. another collaboration with a mid level store to offer us affordable designer fashion.
gosh darnit. this affording designer fashion is starting to burn a hole in my wallet. and also causing major anxiety/stress on my part. i totally missed out on the Dragon Tattoo x H&M line. by the time i got there, they only had a shirt left, which really didn't fit in right lisbeth way. the Missoni x Target line didn't totally blow me away, but i still managed to score a couple of items on clearance and avoided the huge blow out. Vercase x H&M >.< i just didn't bother.. the pricing was still a bit out of my range and everything ran out in my size before i could even get in the store, and now.. there's this..
Jason Wu x Target
:( this is bad. this is really bad. the collaboration was originally announced back in october, but we're just finally getting a real sneak preview now. i want it all. badly. how adorable are those dresses? ugh. both those dresses are listed at $40, and everything else in the line will be under $60. thankgawd i got a target giftcard for christmas and i didn't use it yet. >.< it'll help off set some of the cost.
from what i've seen so far, the line is nothing short but adorable. i can only hope that everything fits well, and the quality is decent. i was really impressed with the level of quality from the Missoni products, so i can only imagine this will be just as good.
peoplestyle apparently has another wu/target ad in their latest edition. i'll see if i can't stop by and pick one up on the way home today and upload a better version.
gosh, that dress looks awfully familiar doesn't it? yep, it kind of looks like this one..
Wu told T magainze, “My goal was not to duplicate anything from my main collection. Instead I designed completely new clothes and accessories that reflect my taste and have a voice of their own.” doesn't mean there won't be some influence right? not that i mind, his spring line looks amazing and i'm giddy with exciting over the pre-fall already. i'm fairly sure that dress will go very, very quickly. i may need to create a priority list on what i want/can find.
a bit about Wu:
