It's a big day at Target. The Zac Posen for Target collection hit shelves today, and as expected, items are flying off the racks. As with most of the Go International collections, there are some big hits and misses, and you'll be lucky to find any size between 1 and 13.
Posen's tops did nothing for me, but there were a couple of skirts that are to die for. I scored this black Ruche Skirt for $34.99, which was completely unidentifiable on the hanger, but an instant hit when worn. In fact I couldn't quite tell what it was on the rack, but it was in my size, so I went for it. Thank goodness I did. I love it!
Another skirt I may purchase online, since I couldn't find it in stores, is the black pleated Tuxedo Skirt for $39.99. The detailing is gorgeous, and it's a thicker fabric that'll be perfect for fall. The Tuxedo Pants ($39.99) were also a hit in my book, with a slim fit and tuxedo stripe down the side, plus blue piping detailing on the pockets.
One item I'm dying to see in person is the Two-Piece Ruffle Dress for $79.99. It's a convertible strapless black dress, which can be worn with or without the ruffles. I'd love to see it layered over a fitted navy top, and appreciate the fact that it's two dresses in one.
Are you noticing a black theme here? I have got to find a way to add some color to my wardrobe!
At this point, it may be best to shop online and return items to your local store if they don't work out. You can also search by zipcode to find out if the item is available in a local store, but you will want to call ahead and confirm. If you do shop in stores, make sure to hit up the clearance rack, where you'll find Liberty of London and Jean Paul Gaultier merchandise marked down by 30 to 50%.
Thanks to NessaLee Style for the heads up via Twitter!
UPDATE: I found the Tuxedo Skirt! It was at a store that told me they didn't have it when I called. But I showed up and there it was. Woo hoo! I am now the proud owner of two Zac Posen for Target skirts.
