|My fav looks from Jason Wu's line for Target.|
Jason Wu is a high end fashion designer who shot to stardom when he was tapped to design the dress Michelle Obama wore to the Presidential inaugural ball.
Since I was due for my weekly trip there I thought I'd swing by the apparel department and check it out.
They only had one dress from the commercial at the Target I was at. While I loved the design and shape of it I was surprised at how cheap feeling and looking the fabric was. I know that this is a line in Target and that you "get what you pay for" but you could definitely find a similar dress at a better price (and possibly better fabric) at Forever 21 or H&M. Or for the same price or a little more you could find something similar at Macy's (my all time favorite shopping spot nowadays). Jason Wu for Target dresses range from $30 to $60 with separates running from $20 to $40. Perhaps that one particular dress was a dud, the other pieces could be better?
Oddly enough, I found this pic of Michelle Obama sporting this exact dress from the Target collection! How funny! Looks great on her. Like how she paired a red belt with it and put it over the cardigan. (I know, she looks crazy in this pic. It's actually a screen grab from a video that someone then put along side the Target dress/info.)
Even though my Jason Wu experience was a bust, all was not lost... I found some really cute dresses right next to the Jason Wu stuff by Mossimo, Merona and Xhiliration (regular Target brands). These dresses were all around $20 I think and felt and looked much better than the one Jason Wu dress that I saw.
Check these out. Super cute for Spring and Summer!
