Crazy for Missoni








Last night I had dream that I camped outside a Target (and let me tell you, I'm not that girl) and got into a violent tug of war over a zig zagged blender against my best friend the second the doors opened. What in the world triggered such a bizarre dream? Well, the fact that I've been scouring the internet for weeks to get a glimpse of the Missoni collection for Target, and yesterday I finally found it! And while there are (unfortunately?) no zig-zagged blenders, their awesome prints have been applied to just about anything else your heart could desire. Galoshes? Check. Luggage? Check. Patio furniture? Yup. A bike? You got it.

I haven't been this excited about a Target collaboration in a long time, so I have to say good job Target for bringing that fabulous Italian sensibility to America. Let's hope this helps us overcome our overwhelming beige obsession and embrace some of that Italian love of color and pattern! September 13 can't come fast enough. And this might be the one time I'd actually show up at a store before it opens, but hopefully I can refrain from any violent tug of wars.
