missoni mayhem

I am definitely a bit blown away by all the Missoni mayhem that took place yesterday. I mean, crashing the entire target website...wow! If target can't handle all the web traffic, then who can? And I am even more blown away by the over 22,000 (when I started this post there were about 15,000) items for sale on ebay! With all the money people are bidding on ebay, they could just buy real Missoni...doesn't really make sense to me? While I certainly was one of the many people excited about the collection (and did order online around 3am) I would NOT pay quadruple the price on ebay...its just not worth it at all. So take your money and go buy real Missoni :) Here are my "real" Missoni picks.

  1. I agree. I was into the blanket for $40 but not for $200! The real pieces are only a bit more with way better quality, colors, and patterns...

  2. I completely agree. The reason Missoni did a collaboration with Target is to bring affordable fashion to consumers. But by people hitting target and clearing the shelves with multiples of every item and putting them on eBay for ridiculous prices, well, it just defeats the whole purpose doesn't it?

    Its just ridiculous. If people were as excited to vote on poll days and get involved more i think our country would be doing pretty good.

  3. its such a shame when this happens completely ruins the opportunity for other people! i do love missoni anyway and am particularly loving the beach towels, maybe for next summer!

  4. So true! I would love to invest in some of my favorite designer pieces...sigh, working on it. xo

  5. I just blogged about what I bought. I agree with what anonymous wrote.

  6. i know, it was nuts yesterday!! i went to 2 targets on my lunch break yesterday looking for that $40 throw and both places were cleaned out. i also checked ebay and was appalled by the $200+ prices. so ridiculous.

  7. ok, I have to admit: I wasn't in love with the Missoni line at Target. I didn't see any of it in person, but when I (finally) was able to see it online, I wasn't blown away. some of it was cute, but for sure not worth paying 4x on ebay.

  8. So incredibly nuts and just a bit overwhelming!

  9. I would definitely rather pay more for the REAL Missoni!! I think it's incredibly selfish of people to buy up more than their fair share just to sell it on Ebay for 3x's what they paid for it. Incredibly selfish. It makes me so mad... I didn't even bother with it when I heard it was such mayhem. Turns out they're restocking all the Missoni by Friday.

    Much Love,

  10. Ha ha my thoughts exactly. The cashier at our Target said people were buying up things in the thousands of $$! I have to imagine they were the eBay sellers and those looking to sell/send to Asia. I'm sure you could get a lot for it there!

    I've got my REAL hand towel, and a pillow and a bowl. I think i'm good!

  11. What I find hillarious is that for the past 2 seasons HomeGoods, HomeSense (in Canada) & Marshalls have ALL had 'real' Missoni home stuff - Robes, blankets, towells, sheets and I have seen it WAY reduced on mega clearance!!! People went gaga for the Target version because why?

  12. Really nice design for these patterns,and delightful colors

    Check out my blog if you have the time :D

  13. I'm jealous that you were able to shop on the site at 3 am :) I haven't checked out ebay since right before the sale...I can't believe how many items there are! So I guess my plan of selling some of my stuff on ebay may not work out after all!

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! i'm obsessed with the target missoni collab.. i want to get knocked up just so i can get the missoni bugaboo collab stroller HAHAHA.

  15. Impossible to get it!!!!!!!
    I went to the store to times!!!

    great shops!!!




    ps: ill be following youre blog!!!!

  16. Mayhem is the right word. I'm not sure if I love the decor or the clothing designs more. They are all great! :)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I would love for you to stop by again soon! xo



  17. Target gets a new shipment in very soon! I've been calling every morning at eight to see if it's come in. I got there at noon the day it came out and the place was wiped clean. oh well...


  18. Love your real Missoni picks, by the way especially the butterfly towels!


  19. I am in total agreement! If I'm going to splurge, I'm splurging on designer!
