Over the past few years, Target has collaborated with designers to create affordable fashion (and bring in a flurry of crazy, Black-Friday prepped women to kill each other over the one Size Two on the rack). Throughout the last couple of collaborations (Missoni, Neiman Marcus, Prabal Gurung…) I was in the classroom, unable to even connect to wifi and try to order something from the collection. So when Target announced their partnership with Peter Pilotto, I put on my war paint and prepared for total domination.

After calling nearly every Target in the surrounding area to select the one receiving the greatest supply, mapping out my routes and carefully selecting the items I would fight for – it all fell apart. I woke up early, and for once in my life – was actually going to arrive ahead of schedule! But even though I was on my A game, I got lost, met zero Peter Pilotto crazies, and drove to five Targets just to ensure that 70% of the collection really was only available online. Alas, another traumatic Target experience. Next time, I will play it smart and stay at home in my pajamas – fighting the refresh button rather than the rain.

I must admit, I’m thrilled that I trekked to the store and checked out the goods in person. There were a few items I had my eye on, but was not a fan once I actually touched it. Also, I would have bought a size up and was pleasantly surprised when I could go down a size. Bonus! Did you score anything from the Peter Pilotto collection?
