Missoni at Target (alternately titled: What Hole Have I Been Living Under?)

by | Sep 20, 2011 | Style | 17 comments

Missoni at Target. I’m talkin’ about Missoni and Target dresses, even a Target patio set… but Missoni. Missoni shoes… kid shoes, ladies shoes, accessories, bags and purses. Missoni, Missoni, Missoni.

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!

And I was all, “Miss-who?”

I guess it was kinda a big deal.

I heard rumblings about this on the interwebz. Peeps on Twitter were all, “OMG. TARGET IS DOWN! THEIR WEBSITE IS DOWN!!! IT’S BECAUSE OF MISSONI! MISSSSSONNNIIIIIII!!!!”

People were running around in the streets, tipping over cars… surely the end of the world was…

But seriously. My mind was all… “Missoni? MISSONI? Ur spelin it wrongz, y’allz! It’s M-E-R-O-N-A.”

Oh and, uh… Merona? It’s respectable line-o-bland-wear. We all own or have owned Merona.


So, I initially thought Merona crashed Target’s site. Or was it Mossimo? Oh my.

Maybe khakis were making a big comeback? It could happen!

I decided to click around and get to the bottom of Merona’s sudden fame.

As I clicked around the interwebz the light bulb turned on. I realized there wasn’t a mis-print. It was Misssssoniiii not Merrrronaaaa. “Uh…. HAVE I HAD MY HEAD IN HOLE? WHAT IS THIS ZIG-ZAGGEDY BUHRRRRILLLLLANCE???!!!”

I mean… I am even on PINTEREST, people.

I have good taste!

I have even pinned VALENTINO, people!

I have 53 pinboards and almost 500 pins to prove my good taste!

I’m a division manager in charge of 49 people! I drive a Dodge Stratus!

I digress.

I am not a fashion diva, but I do think I am at least at a level where I would know when something is hot at Target. AT LEAST! FOR CRYIN’ IN THE NIGHT!

I mean really, friends…. IT’S TARGET.  That’s mah hood, yo!

I heard about the long lines – like OUTSIDE OF THE STORE lines – of people trying to get their hands on this stuff.

Missoni ClothesInstead I sat in front of my computer in my 3 -year-old Gap yoga pants… cranked up my Pandora Cake channel, and sipped on my delish home-made mocha… I may or may not have pinned something, just to prove to me I still had cute taste.

Maybe I pinned a recipe, even. A literal ode to good taste, no?

I didn’t go to Target that day.

Things I Don’t Do:

  • Early-morning-day-after-Thanksgiving shopping
  • Big county fairs
  • Food festivals
  • I shouldn’t do the self check-out at Walmart…
  • Pink Floyd concerts at the Rose Bowl
  • Rush on Target for Missoni

Then again, I see a pair of $39.99 Missoni shoes are listed for $129.99 on eBay.

SRSLY? Srsly.

I mean. ZIG ZAGS?! FUN COLORS?! Who can resist? We all know how I feel about colored tights

So. Did you go? Were you in “the know”? Do you have something Merona in YOUR closet?

*Just so you know… I am not being paid to blather about this little union. It just caught my eye. Brightly colored zig zagged textiles will do that to a girl like me.
