hit or miss-oni.

so...did anyone brave the missoni for target launch?
it's funny how you can get sucked in by all the hype.
i'm not a huge fan of missoni, yet i found myself constantly checking the website last night to see if i could get first dibs on the goods. this is the only time being five hours behind works to our advantage.
it was about 11pm when the first few items became available.
nothing i had to have, so i waited...and waited.
it was about 12:15am when all the products were available, and by 1am, i had successfully added 13 items to my cart. after a final survey of my cart, i decided on five of the items and proceeded to checkout. i filled out my information, found out that the free shipping didn't apply to me surprise!, entered my credit card information, hit the red button, and.....
"uh-oh!"
"oops!"
"a fatal error has occured."
"we are unable to process your request at this time."
at 2am, grouchy and tired, i gave up.

woke up this morning to more of the same...
"our site is really popular today. we are experiencing a high volume of traffic. try again later."
at 9am this morning, most of the items i originally had in my cart were out of stock, and i ended up purchasing only two items.
you would think they'd be prepared for this.

did you get any pieces from the missoni for target collection?
tell me your experiences...in store or online.

tee, miley cyrus x max azria (similar); necklace, blue vanilla)

  2. After hearing about all the crazy stories and mad chaos, we said forget it! Hopefully things will get restocked and go back on sale soon!

  3. I went, but for the price point, and the Target version I just didn't think it was worth it. The little girls, hosiery and housewares were the best in my opinion! I didn't end up spending! I am hoping for a real Missoni scarf one day...so I think I will hold out! :) Oh and I hear, people were loading up just to sell on eBay for triple the price!!! I already see items listed! Crazy!

  4. I have read lackluster reviews on the products, the clothing was acrylic and rayon blended, some items were polyester. The plastic tumblers were painted so I think I may go back once the items are restocked to see what is there. But I am not in dire need of anything, I have some M missoni and Orange missoni items so I am good :D

  5. Your shoes are so effing hot.
    I didn't even try for the Missoni stuff. It wasn't worth the trouble. I figure that I will catch up when I catch up.

  9. Sister, the shoes and the jacket are killer. I love this look! I am sorry to hear about your Target aggravation. So annoying!

  10. I went over my lunch break, and even though it was mostly picked over, I managed to find the one dress I wanted and a pair of shoes. Plus, I picked up a couple of notebooks ( I love pretty journals!) and a skirt and scarf for my daughter. For very little effort, I think I came out ok :)

    I love this jacket with the shorts!

  12. i'm seriously in love with those shoes. i checked 'em out too and almost got them :) i love it with this shorts outfit and that clutch is great!

    i went to target at 9:30am and there was nothing on the racks. it sold out so fast! i did get online early and purchased 12 things. i know, crazy. i just didn't know what would look good, what would fit me, etc. so i just got them and figured i could always return if need be. i couldn't believe the madness though!!!

  13. I wish I could have bought some stuff from this collection, too bad we won't have a target here until 2012, 2013. I absolutely love your jacket, so gorgeous! This look is so great casual chic

  16. Great outfit. Cool stacked kicks.
    I love Missoni and I thought the Target products looked cheap. Everyone's a critic.

  19. This really sucks! I am sorry it happened to you! We don't have target in Bulgaria and I am not a big fan of Missoni so... no I didn't buy anything. I don't like online shopping in general... it takes away most of the pleasure :)

  21. Argh, I hate it when that happens. Same thing happened to me when I was trying to purchase concert tickets once, so frustrating! Puppy <3 Probably going to be a rather large puppy though, if it takes much after the lab.

    I always used to think those shoes looked funny when I saw them everywhere else but you pull them off like nobody's business.

  25. Yeah, apparently Target's website couldn't handle the traffic. I never bother with sales like these. The mad dash holds no thrill for me. If I really want something I'll head over to eBay. And now to the outfit...loving it, LOVING those shoes. Are they Jeffrey Campbell?

  26. I am definitely not a fan of the MFT line, or Missoni, for that matter. I've heard/read tons of stories about the website being hell, and I don't dare go into Target until the hype is over. hahaha. There were some cute pieces I saw online, but I wasn't super antsy to get anything.

    On another note, Bear looks adorable! My best friend has a Chow named Bear too :)

  31. I read in one of your recent posts that you're only 5' 2"? I'd never EVER have guessed that. You always look so tall and seriously, your legs always look so long! I'm 5' 3"-ish and I always think things like, "I'm too short to pull 'that' off." But anyways, I've been inspired by you to possibly try some new things. =)

    Anyways, I love Bear. He's adorable! And you look fab, as usual! I stopped by Target today and mine still had lots of stuff. I picked up a cardigan. I couldn't justify purchasing anything else.

  32. loooooooove your shoes!! too bad that Target does not shipped to Canada:(

  34. I had an interesting experience with this sale, as well. I had been anxiously awaiting as there were a few home items and some clothing items I wanted from the sale. In particular, I really wanted the throw blanket (in either color) but couldn't get my hands on one. My mom tried 3 different stores in our area but they were out and I tried online and they were out. The collection was clearly a hit! That must be very exciting for them. Hopefully they restock it soon!

  35. I was out of town and had limited access to the internet when the missoni line went up. I checked the next day and yes, I experienced the same "oops, our site suddenly became popular..." message. I was able to peruse quite easily when I got in but most of the items I wanted were not available. I ended up buying from the girls' collection. Hope they fit! :))

    Love that jacket and it looks like your long quest for brogues has been successful. It looks smashing on you!

  36. My store wasn't crazed full of insane people so I actually got to look at it all in peace. I ended up with the brown/black open front cardigan, a tray, some bowls, and some socks. I'm satisfied that I got what I wanted. We'll all be sick of seeing it here in the coming weeks - lol!

  37. aww, love sister's new puppy. what a great name. love your shoes again. Really cute with shorts.

    ReplyDelete
  38. OMG first Bear: He is adorable, super cute.
    Now to the outfit: I LOVE this outfit, so absolutely cool and original, I love how you look in it, plus bag is a dream.
