Winter wish list

September 26, 2011 Leave a comment

I stopped by Nordstrom today with my mom. She had to pay her bill, and I really wasn’t looking for anything in particular to buy. But of course, it’s next to impossible to walk through that store and not find something I want; today I found three.
I know fall just got here, but here are some things that are already on my winter wish list:

And…. I am pretty sure this will be on sale tomorrow morning on Hautelook… I’ve wanted this since the first day I saw it a few months ago. Of course, now that it’s on sale, I am totally broke. As usual.
Thanks for the shitty tips at work tonight, people. You’re really not helping me reach any of these very important goals of mine.

Missoni Madness

September 14, 2011 1 comment

Legendary Italian fashion house Missoni brought their eclectic and colorful patterns to Target today in the form of sweaters, scarves, totes, shoes, and pillows, just to name a few pieces. The entire 400-item Missoni for Target collection, the chain’s biggest limited-designer collection to date, was intended to be featured at 1,762 Target stores in the U.S. and online from September 13  through Oct. 22.

Turns out, shoppers today were met with what Target is calling “unprecedented” demand. By the time I hit up my local Target store on my lunch hour today, I was shocked to learn that the entire line was gone already. Yes, gone. Sold out. Snatched up by eager shoppers that waited in line outside before the store even opened at 8 am.

“There might be a few shoes left, if you’re lucky,” I heard an employee tell some other ladies. Naturally, I bee-lined to the shoe department to find this cute little pair of shoes sitting alone on the shelf…and they just happened to be my size 🙂

As I walked around the store with my precious Missoni find safely under my arm, I watched as fellow shoppers aimlessly wandered around with their jaws open, chatting on their phones in disbelief that the entire line was already sold out. Employees compared it to Black Friday. Even the website crashed: “Woof! We are suddenly extremely popular. You may not be able to access our site momentarily due to unusually high traffic. Please stay here and we’ll try to get you in as soon as we can!” the site said all day.

Although I’m disappointed I wasn’t able to get some most of the items on my Missoni wish list, I feel lucky to have at least scored my suede shoes and this cute little cereal bowl:

Items have naturally already hit eBay… I’m going to attempt to resist the urge to buy anything else, although I was really hoping to score a Missoni candle, scarf, makeup bag, and throw. Check out my Missoni wish list below:

So…what do you think of the Missoni for Target collection? Was it worth all the madness? Were you able to get your hands on any Missoni today? 

>>1-2, 3-4

fun with my iPhone :)

For all of you proud smartphone owners out there…. check out this awesome website! They seriously have some of the most original and unique covers I’ve ever seen. And if you just aren’t satisfied with one they’ve got, you can make your very own by uploading your own art. They have a lot of music and art-inspired cases; needless to say, this is the one I picked out 🙂

How cool is it?! This is one of the five pre-created No Doubt cases they have. I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the endless possibilities of creating my own, and for the sake of instant gratification, I just went ahead and ordered this one because knowing me, it would probably take me weeks, if not months, to perfect my very own ND-inspired case. Anyway, this is my latest purchase, and I can’t wait ’til it comes in the mail!!! Check out some of their other cases that I thought were (almost) equally awesome:
