Peter Pilotto for Target

I can't even begin to tell you how insanely excited I am at this moment.  It is currently 4:30am and I have been up since 2am.  I could only sleep for 3 hours because I am so pumped up with adrenaline from this amazing collaboration.  I've been infatuated with Peter Pilotto for a couple of years now.  The prints and the color blocking that Peter and Christopher come up with have always been unique and out of this world.  Of course since I am still a young and upcoming fashion designer, there is no way I could ever afford a piece from their high end collection.  Luckily, waking up suddenly at 2am has its perks.  The collection officially launched on Target.com and Net-A-Porter around the time I woke up.  I quickly scored two pieces I'd been eyeing, a crop swim suit top as well as a long sleeve shirt.  The dress I have been dreaming about was there staring at me seductively saying to me, "Buy Me Tiffany." But I decided I had to be a part of the chaos.  I discovered that the Target down the street from my parents high rise here in San Francisco is actually getting the entire collection.  With that in mind, I am going to stand in line at 6am and wait for the doors to open at 8am.  I'm hoping to score my dream dress in the matter of seconds after Target opens its doors.  Thank you Target (and H&M) for collaborating with high end designers so that fashionistas like me can get a little piece of heaven.


                          


So to recap my shopping experience.  I was the only one in line outside the San Francisco City Target at 6am.  I'm not going to lie, I was shocked.  Another girl finally showed up an hour later!  Best part was, she went to college at FIT.  People always say Parsons and FIT students are rivals, but in reality we're all just glad to have graduated our intense colleges alive!  Once the doors opened at 8am there were literally only 10 of us.   RIDICULOUS.  The San Francisco City Target had everything!  After soooooo many trips to the dressing room later I actually ended up walking out with three pieces.  I did get the dress I had been idolizing over, but it was just too poofy for me.  My inner fashionista told me to purchase it, think about it so I could possibly reconfigure it or return it another day.  I also ended up nabbing the color blocked mesh sweater as well as the killer color blocked moto jacket!  I officially now have five pieces of Peter Pilotto and I'm craving for more.
