Missoni for Target: The Aftermath

Now that the customer-ignited fury of the Missoni for Target failure has finally died down a bit, I feel like it is safe to come out from under my zig-zag printed covers and talk about the collection...

I strolled into my neighborhood Target at approximately 10:30 AM on September 13, the day of the infamous launch. Reports of Target's site crash and vicious comments on their Facebook page had warned me of the Missoni wasteland I was about to walk in on - but, thankfully, Omahans apparently have little to no knowledge of these sorts of things, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a decently stocked store. The homewares and bedding sections had been completed raided, and most of the clothing was only available in an XL, but I was still able to walk out with the flats, a couple of trays, and a cosmetic bag without having to fend for my life.

On the West Coast, my aunt strolled into her local Target and snapped a picture of a plethora of Missoni bedding, which she promptly texted to me. Fast forward to a few days later, and my new favorite family member had sent me my coveted ribbon pillow AND a full Missoni for Target bedspread.
I am grateful that I was able to get my hands on these coveted items, but I know others weren't so lucky. 

What was your Missoni for Target experience? Share below!

Show us the pillow! :-)
I'll have to reveal my loot at one point. Good job with the sheet set!
