Rodarte for Target, Part Deux

Disclaimer: Before you read, know that I love Target wholeheartedly. We’re just not on speaking terms right now.

As you know, Rodarte for Target came out today (was supposed to come out today). I arrived at my Target promptly at 8 AM and not only was it completely picked over but half the line was missing. The second Target I went to had absolutely nothing out yet and had no idea what Rodarte even was.

I should not have been as shocked as I was since it’s happened to me twice before with Target collabs (Rogan and Proenza) but I found myself quite upset. I started frantically calling out to Target employees and 6 out of 7 had no idea what the words “GO” and “International” even meant. I was so perplexed by their perplexity. “Target has a GO International designer every few months?” I kept repeating in a few octaves too high so that it sounded like a question. I was in my own personal hell.

I ended up with a few pieces from the first Target but I’m not totally satisfied quite yet. Where were those amazing tights and that bow belt?!? One employee irritatingly told me that it was only 8:05 AM and they just haven’t put everything out yet. Translation: WE DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU!

I’ll keep you updated as I scour through every Target in Southern California.

Rodarte for Target

In the last few days, new images having been rolling in of the much-anticipated collaboration, Rodarte for Target. But of all the images swirling the interwebs, nothing beats these advertisements I found on the pages of Marie Claire’s January issue. How glorious do these dresses look against a backdrop of wheat fields??

I’ve been patiently waiting for the Rodarte collab since it was first announced many moons ago and now that the collection is finally upon us (comes out December 20), I’m literally about to burst at the seams with excitement! Oh you know I will be that girl standing in front of Target at 6 AM on Dec 20!

The collection is comprised of slip dresses, lace cardigans, lace camisoles, tulle skirts, bow belts, shrugs, and much more. Very whimsical pieces, yet VERY Rodarte! I love when a designer collab with Target truly reflects the designer’s actual designs. Make sense? Basically Rodarte for Target looks very Rodarte! So bravo to Kate and Laura Mulleavy (founders/designers of Rodarte) for making an amazing collection at such affordable price points.

All I have to say is: I call dibs on the black slip dress (second image).
