Missoni Confessions

I have some Missoni confessions to make. All told, I actually hit 4 Targets yesterday, not to mention a little damage online when the Target site finally resuscitated itself. If I don’t have to set foot inside another Target for three more years I think I’d be OK. But I’ve sorted through my loot and, as promised, here are the modeling shots of the ones that made the short list. Sizing is a bit inconsistent so I’ll indicate which is which. Overall, the quality is akin to the M Missoni line but the general aesthetic is true to the main orange line.

These first two tops are from the girls’ collection. Lil A has the poncho and so does her mom, so I thought why not triplets for the next photo op in NYC? But I’m actually not sure this will ever see the light of day–it is an XL:

I actually love this hoodie cardi; it’s a size L and it fits ok if I leave it unzipped. I found it in XL online so we’ll see how the sizes compare when that gets here:

The next ones are from the women’s line, all size XS. The first cardi is a sparkly one with lurex thread very typical of their main orange label line:

I think this lightweight blue cardi will look cute over a sundress:

These are silky pajama pants that might double as palazzo pants under one of my black slinky Missoni sweaters:

This is the sundress I saw from the door as I was waiting in line yesterday morning–it will definitely require alterations so I don’t have to pinch it in from the back as I’m doing here:

Finally, this last pic captures the extent of my zigzag obsession…who would ever want to match a shirt with a serving plate?!

    hi everyone! thanks for your comments and i’m very happy to hear about some of your scores!

    Lindsay: I did see the b/w bike at one of the stores but it was their bolted down display one. It was so fab, but I couldn’t pull the trigger at $400!!

    You wear it so well! I love the cardigan! I’ve never been a huge fan of Missoni- something about it doesn’t look right on me…

    I thought about going to the pop up store in NY, but I got tied up at work. I was head over heels for that bike it looked wonderful.

    Larkie, I was able to get the silk pants TODAY in NYC. I could not believe myself. So much for telling everyone that I’m not a fan of Missoni until I saw you with those silk pants. I went to Target to pick up house hold stuff; not expecting anything to find Missoni. Then, I found size large silk pants so I took it. DH was like “really? Women, it’s too big on you”. I was like “I’m fat this fits me loose”. This went on for awhile and I decided that I better not take it as it was too big. As I was walking around mopping, I saw the pants in sales rack from the corner of my eyes. I run to the rack and it happens to be size M. I could live with size M as I’m not that small in my hip area (lol). Sorry for the long post. I just want to Thank You for inspiring us to those who are not a big Missoni fans. Now I want the dress, and top!!!!

    I’ve never been much of a Missoni fan til you modeled the hoodie and the cardi (the first of the 2 wins my vote)! Great scores! Rock them girlie!!! Well worth the hectic LA traffic.
