Is anyone else as frustrated as I am at Target for introducing an out of this world "American Girl in Paris" Jason Wu line and not providing nearly enough stock to suffice? I don't understand that logic. You have customers, who want to buy your stuff, you know there will be more people who want it than product, and yet you proceed anyway? I know, I know you want to create a huge demand. But isn't that only advantageous if you're going to sell things for astronomical prices? In my estimation the only people benefiting from this are those shameful ebay sellers who are now selling the stuff for 4 times the price it was in the stores.
Clearly I've never been to business school.
Also, another gripe I have with this whole Jason Wu debacle is that they chose to release the line on Sunday. Don't they know that I don't shop on Sunday? They should have known this and planned their entire release around accommodating me, clearly. By the time Monday morning rolled around, everything in an extra small was already gone. Boo.
Luckily I snagged this pretty peachy blush colored top in a medium yesterday, and because I'm a seamstress extraordinaire I think I'll be able to make it work. Hopefully.
I still love you, but seriously Target? I call foul.
Okay, I'm done whining...
In other news, I really love this skirt that I found at the thrift a couple weeks ago. It's actually quite twirly, and I felt so pretty in it all day long. Ironically, I like to wear clothes that make me feel pretty. I know, shocking.
Anyways, I have the most fabulous thrift store right near where I live. Just one more reason to love Washington. And there is some lovely petite lady who likes to donate her fabulous clothes there because I am constantly finding all kinds amazing pieces, like this skirt for example, or Banana Republic pants in 00P. I don't know how I've gotten that lucky, but I'm sticking to that thrift store like glue. There you have it. My loyalty to the Goodwill.
