I gave in to the Missoni for Target hype. I showed up at my local Los Angeles Target at exactly 8:08 am on the day that it launched, and everything was already sold out! Women with one or two cartloads of stuff were standing on the sides sorting out their goodies before checking out, while the desperate, envious latecomers stood and waited for them to give something (anything) up.
I played it calm amidst the chaos. Besides, I wasn’t going to stand there and wait for the psycho, selfish hoarders to sort their pile and give us their rejects. Honestly, you know it’s a madhouse when these crazy women just empty racks into their carts so no one has a bite of the apple. I hope Target regulates next time. Especially since most of this stuff ended up selling on eBay for way more than they were worth!
To cut my rant short, I left after 5 minutes of observing the aftermath. I went home, logged in to Target.com, and scored these pumps, a pair of knit zig zag shorts, a pleated maxi, a men’s scarf for my BF, and a set of 8 tumblers!
Then the site crashed, and I felt lucky to have gotten most of the things I liked.
I love happy endings.
