I had to go to Target today to buy some clamp lights. As I was walking in, I was somehow drawn to the accessories section, where I saw some nice looking leggings (or I thought they were). I was looking at them and noticed missoni written on the tag. It hit my mind that Target was all crazy with the 'Missoni for Target' thing!
So I started hurrying around trying to grab what was left in the store.
The Target I went to is always pretty empty. Luckily, a lot of missoni stuff there were just all over the place (unlike other places where people fight over anything missoni). The only thing that was bugging me was my mom and dad waiting on me, so I was rushing myself around the store.
Here's what I got.
I love this ad. I didn't notice the shoes, but when I first saw this I definitely thought the hosiery was pretty cool. The very leggings I was drawn to were the last black pair of these tights!!! Yay!!
They only had size M/T left, which I don't mind. As long as my legs fit in there, I'm fine!
I love tights/leggings/stockings/hosiery (whatever you wish to call it) during the winter because I tend to wear a lot of skirts.
These are 16 dollars and I think out of everything I got, I love these the most.
They are sooooooo thick and soft! If only they had more blacks and browns, I would've stocked up on these in a heartbeat.
You can see the missoni signature wave on it.
Stretch, stretch, stretch!! See how thick it is? :) Oh my, can't wait to wear these!
Next are shoes.
I tweeted asking my followers if I should buy them and most of the replies were "No." Even with the majority of the people saying nay to this, I went ahead and bought it. I'm not a huge fan of suede, but the fit was surprisingly comfortable on my feet and I wanted to bring it home and see if I really didn't like it.
I do have to say, the quality isn't that great. But, for the cheap 40 dollars price tag, contrary to the popular opinion, I don't think it's all that bad. M Missoni (the lower end of the brand) itself has some pretty bad quality products (for the price you are paying!) in their line, so considering that these products were framed to fit Target's affordable price range, I'm not surprised that the shoes aren't the best in town.
So back to this lady again.
She's wearing the shoes and they look great on her!!
Here's how they look like in real life.
I think it's just enough of the accent waves.
You can wear it to anywhere (work, school, church, library, dinner, parties..) and it won't look too overly done.
The label inside. You can see how easily the suede collects dirt. This was the only pair that was fresh and clean.
hehehe.. I tried them out. I think my right foot isn't fully in! It's past 4:00 in the morning and I'm lacking effort here, haha.
Nice thick heels for added comfort.
I'm still on the fence about the shoes, but we will see. If I were still in New York, I would have returned these in fear of them splitting open while walking. But since I'm in Texas and I barely walk anymore, I might just fancy these and keep them as a souvenir. Or, be slick about it and sell them on ebay with added premium when everything runs out of stock. :p
The next two are things I got out of practicality.
First is the barrette.
I have my hear twisted up 99.9999% of the time, so this is going to be used until it breaks! :)
10 dollars for this.
And since I travel a lot, pouches always come in handy.
I got this for 12.99.
The fixtures are nice, the zipper is extremely smooth, and it doesn't have a cheap vibe. Everything is put together nicely at a very nice price!
The inside looks like this.
I could put my makeup or personal stuff in here when I travel! Yay :)
So what do you guys think? Should I keep the shoes or return them? Anything else I should get my paws on? (I'm planning to make a second round with plenty of time to browse).
