Jason Wu for Target: Wu Hoo!



 Jason Wu is said to be the designer of this collaboration, but we all know it was really the mischievous little furry sweetheart (see ad campaign below) that put his paws on the finishing designs.

Ok not reaaally, but Jason Wu, self proclaimed "cat person" got his inspiration from this little cat character. The collection itself is deigned with Parisian influences and a little bit of whimsy! Jason Wu has been seen on the most fashionable, from Michelle Obama to Blake Lively. Not bad.

I was looking forward to Jason Wu for Target just as much as I anticipated the Missoni for Target Collaboration! I was so happy about how things turned out last time, with my stores location and the overall quality of the merchandise, I knew I had to do it again.  Each piece from the collection was under $50.

I of course had my eyes on the prizes, but with 15-ish people ahead of me in line, I had no chance at scoring the Milu tote bag that I had been coveting since day one. Why only five totes Target? Why?!



Alas, I will live. Having my own mews (muse) cheered me up! Take a look at my kitty The Cookie next to my Jason Wu dress.



Just like the commercial!






I did end up scoring the Sleeveless Pleated Shift Dress in Blush Stripes that was also on my list. It's super cute and will look so good this spring and summer wearing it out and about around the Bay Area.  I imagine wearing this at the beach, Marianne's ice cream in hand at Santa Cruz, or sipping wine in Napa Valley paired up with a hat.



I also was able to get my hands on a Collared Cap Sleeve Pleated blouse in red that was returned to the rack after a few minutes. I love it! And for $26 that's a steal. I will be color blocking it up with my Tiffany Blue belt and my red flats. Shown here:





All in all a sweet Target shopping trip. I just wished that they stocked more of those tote bags.

I love shopping sprees and peeking into other girls shopping bags. Did you brave the Jason Wu fiasco? What did you score? I'm dying to know!
