Happy Zac Posen Day!


Did you know that yesterday was a holiday?! Well... Not exactly. But it was pretty close! Zac Posen's line for Target officially launched yesterday and I couldn't wait to get my hands on pieces I have been staring at for forever! I awoke like a kid on Christmas morning at 6:30 am so that I could head over to church after my shopping extravaganza. And I wasn't the only fashionista awaking early to get Zac's highly coveted pieces. I waited in line with about 15 other women (young and old I might add!) as we anxiously hoped the Target employees would open the doors early. No such luck - but it was like a free for all frenzy once our feet hit that linoleum as we made a beeline for the racks. I grabbed that red dress I've been dying to get, a few tanks, and some more dresses. One item I saw that surprised me: The long gown Claire Danes was spotted in at Zac's launch party a few weeks ago.

The gown's length, the mini train, the cut-out detail in the back. Love! However a hanger mis-hap forced me to forgo this gorgeous dress. Hanger said Small, garment was actually an X-Small and by the time I went back to the rack they were gone :( Guess it wasn't meant to be!

After trying on all the items there were only two pieces that I absolutely loved and thought were great. That ruffled 2 piece dress really shocked me as the underneath garment was actually a fabulous well constructed cocktail dress with a great fit. I love the attachable ruffled skirt - very feminine. I'm still a little nervous about the red as I own nothing in this color. How? I have no idea... But I think I'll learn to live with it. The 2nd item I snagged was the pink tiger print tank for 16 bucks. Those were the pieces that I knew I just had to have. I also have read about a few ladies picking up a cute scarf in the same print as the long dress above - Jealous! Maybe I'll come across it over the next few weeks.

Did you pick up any Zac Posen pieces? What did you think? Were you overwhelmed with excitement or less than thrilled with the frills? I'd love to know! Happy Monday! xoxo
