Alexander McQueen almost made me late for work today. Actually, I should blame Target for my tardiness (and my big hair – no time for a proper blow dry).
Mr. McQ launched his line for the discounted, designers for all retailer – the buzz of both online and offline fashionistas for months now. So, being a lover of all things McQueen, and an online girl at that, I logged in just after midnight to get my goods. This was disappointing – and not worth the trunk cases under my eyes this morning – as the store wasn’t open yet. Hello, it’s the Internet calling. We never close.
So this morning, doing my best Deitrich in a towel head wrap, I logged in again. Browsed through the whole collection and found my inner discount diva – already envisioning what shoes I’d wear the pieces with…only to come to a screeching halt in the shipping process.
“Sorry, Target doesn’t ship internationally.” Darlings, if you are going to offer international geniuses for sale, you better deliver to “international” destinations like Canada, eh. Guess it’s not design for all of us.
Here are my pics from the collection I cannot have…
I’ll just have to buy the real deal – no one would have believed I was a bargain hunter anyway.
