Every competitive shopper has hit a low point in their competitive shopping careers; I am no different. My rock bottom came during last season’s Target Missoni release—- when I found myself in the Target children’s department fighting over a pair of leggings with a woman when it was clear that neither one of us was ever fitting into them. Really, I thought I could pull off a children’s size small. So did she. We both were maybe lucky if we were getting into a kid’s extra large, but this fact didn’t matter at the time. This was ROCK BOTTOM!
After that little incident I had sworn off of Target and H&M diffusion lines—- those lines where normally expensive designers do a limited affordable collection for the mass market. Too much pressure! Too much competition! But just this week Target released pictures of the upcoming Jason Wu line (a favorite designer of one of my favorite ladies Michelle Obama) and after just a peek I knew I have to go back to my competitive shopping ways. After looking at a picture of the scarf from the collection, I think you’ll know why!
Yep— that’s a definite sign from the shopping gods! As soon as I swear off competitive shopping, Target makes it’s next collection cat themed….. This can only mean that I was never supposed to swear off competitive shopping in the first place!
Target’s Jason Wu collection hits stores February 5th. I’ll be there—- and I’m relieved that this time there will be no children’s collection to hit rock bottom with! 🙂
