Even though I totally dissed the Zac Posen for Target collection a while ago, did that stop me from going to Target the weekend it debuted? Important thing to note: The stores don't seem to care about their own street dates, and will put out these collections on the Friday or Saturday before they officially go on sale. I truly believe this is why I did not find the Cynthia Vincent shoes I wanted on the Sunday they "debuted." They had already been picked over for two whole days!
Regardless, I was in Target on a Friday for some manufactured reason, and walked through to see if anything was displayed yet, and of course, there it was! As suspected, most of the items were designed for juniors, and some of the items were as ugly as the pictures I had seen. But there were a few cute items, and typical me, I bought probably around 6 or 7 things. In the end, I am left with 3 items. A long party dress which I will wear to the one fancy cocktail party I go to every year, a casual sun dress (the only one that was age-appropriate in length, definitely not as short as the picture below) and a black short tuxedo-like blazer. I think I'm getting much better at self-control!
