Missoni Madness!

So I'd been seeing those fun Target commercials highlighting the Missoni collection; opening day was Tuesday. I figured I'd stop by and browse. I do love me a zig zag, and Missoni is all about the zig and the zag!

I got to Target at about 8:30 am, thinking I was early. Boy, was I wrong. By the time I walked in the store, there were tons of ladies (mostly young) in line at the cashiers with piles (PILES, I say!) of Missoni goodness in their carts. I made a loop through the store, only finding the Missoni dregs. There were very few garments left, though I did find a black and white zigzag top in my size. Even the housewares and decorative items had been picked clean.

However, I did score on a Missoni tie for hubby. I don't often buy him clothes - he has very good taste and knows what he likes. So I was taking a chance, but he loved it and wore it the next day to work, getting lots of compliments.
It is a nice pattern, isn't it?

I heard that the Target website was down all day Tuesday. I also heard that Missoni for Target items are now being sold on ebay, of course at elevated prices.

It's just as well I saved my money. I'm going on a bus trip with our quilt guild tomorrow - off to Atlanta! We're going to a quilt show in the morning and a quilt shop in the afternoon. Can't wait!

Love Dad's tie! I doubt Tommy would want to wear one, but Dad definitely pulls it off!

レイバンのサングラスを生活の不可欠品と考えている人もいるでしょう。特にアウトドアの活動をよくする人にとってはもっともそうでしょう。もし、釣りや山登りのために、サングラスを買いたいなら、レイバン wayfarerのなかに一番人気あるのレイバン RB2140がお薦めです。
