Jason Wu for Target: Haul, Style & Giveaway

Jason Wu for Target was utter chaos. Or "cows" as my Chinese/Spanish mother pronounces it.  I went to the Target about a mile away from me, got there just as they opened the doors, queued outside for 2 minutes, and finally went inside to find nothing left on the racks... 

So what did I do? I drove 10 miles to find the same result at another Target, but found the following on the racks in the fitting room =D  Unfortunately I couldn't get any bags and choked back some sobs as I saw someone checking out with the bag I wanted :(


The Haul/Review:
Overall the fabrics were pretty reasonable for Target standards. The fit was wide on many of the pieces though. 
I loved this sheer polka dotted blouse but it looks a little wide on me. The black pleated skirt hits right below my knees, so flats aren't an option with this skirt as it would make my legs look even shorter.

My favorite piece that I picked up, it's just my style and the fabric is soft and the blush pink color looks great against any skin color.

I'm returning this dress because it's very unflattering, it's big on me but also the pleating in the chest area gives me saggy boobs and I don't even have boobs to begin with! So back to the store it goes!

The Styling:
Jason Wu for Target top, H&M blazer and trousers, F21 headband, Lela Rose for Payless cutout shoes
See what I mean by wide fit on the blouse
Jason Wu for Target Top, H&M trousers, F21 headband and necklace, Calzado Jazpiel wedges

The Giveaway:
(because I hit 200 followers and wanted to say Thank You yay! I wanted to give away a bag but couldn't get my hands on any...):
I am giving away this Jason Wu for Target rayon bowtie tee (Size: Medium, Value: $22.99)

So lucky you were able to find something in the second store. I found nothing when I went. I have no one to blame but myself for waking up super late on such a day like this.

Instead of seeing an empty shelf/rack like you, I saw a whole bunch of clothes neatly hang on the rack and was so excited until I took a closer look and realized none of the items were of Jason Wu's Collection. It was just a bunch of other brands hanging under Jason Wu's section. =(

Oh well. I hope they restock. I am looking forward to seeing the collection.

Thanks for the review. If by chance, you get your hands on the straw or lace clutch, please review.

I am now a new follower on blogger and twitter.

How sweet of you to do a giveaway! I got the blush dot blouse, and I think I'll tuck it in with something layered underneath to offset the sheer factor. I got lucky, shopped early, and really loved the floral and cat prints. Wrote a review on my blog. Enjoy your purchases!

Yup...this was basically every reviewer's comment on the line...the fit was wide! I do like what you picked up, so will you wear it as is or have it altered?

I admire your fortitude for actually braving the crowds in store for your purchases. I thought the collection was cute but there wasn't anything that I just had to have. I heard the sizing was quite generous.
