Go International and Calypso lines were heavily marked down at Target after a few weeks. I couldn't have been more wrong; I was so surprised that everything sold out, across the country, in only minutes. The clothes aren't really my usual style as I am a little pattern-shy, but I was potentially interested in some of the throws and pillows to liven up the new family room couch. I decided to check the store out at the last minute based on reports from East Coast friends about everything selling out, as well as the website crashing. After all, I'm a total sucker for hype. I knew it was going to be a little crazy at my store as I saw that Racked LA posted a photo of the line waiting to get in, but I went anyway, quite foolishly. When I got there, everything had been stripped clean; the employees had already put racks of regular clothes back where the Missoni had been merchandised. Dressing rooms were empty and clean as well, the only evidence were a few people with shopping carts loaded with Missoni items bartering their goods in front of the cash register. Most of the people clearly were grabbing anything they could to resell; this one dude was holding up a random pair of children's rainboots asking for a trade. A Target store associate said it was 10x crazier than any black Friday she's ever seen.
