My Lunch Break with Jason Wu

I wish I could have lunch with Jason Wu.  I am just happy enough to wear a dress from his new line at Target.  I actually was on a lunch date with my husband in these pictures {thanks, hubs, for snapping my pics}. We rendezvoused at 11:30 AM at one of our favorite local Mexican eateries.  It was worth every single calorie and fat gram...chips, salsa, queso, jalapeno ranch and a big, steamy, greasy plate of cheese enchiladas!  I needed a serious siesta after that treat.  

I must admit, that I was one of the "crazies" that hit my local Target store {okay, two Target stores} bright and early on Sunday morning to snag up as much Jason Wu for Target as I could. I am not exaggerating, it was all gone in a matter of minutes. You know what I mean if you were in the stores that day. I was lucky enough to grab a few dresses and a black pleated skirt.  I am sure you will be seeing my purchases in future posts.

I replaced the black tie that came with the dress with a thin, pink leather belt.
One of my favorite, cooler weather looks...tights with black ankle boots.
I kept my accessories to a minimum.  I didn't feel like I needed too many extras.



Dress:Jason Wu for Target | Cardigan:Mossimo | Tights:Forever 21 | Boots:Payless  
Sunglasses:XOXO | Necklace & Ring:Forever 21 | Belt:Target
Watch:Fossil | Bracelets:Vintage from my Grandmother

If you missed out on the Jason Wu goods, there's still hope!  I heard, from a reliable source, that Target is going to slowly replenish their stock online this week.  I am almost positive the actual retail stores will not be receiving any additional merchandise.  So, be sure to check online to see what's been added.  I must admit, there are a couple of items that I still REALLY want.  Fingers are crossed that they will be available soon!!

Cheers to Mexican food, the person that invented queso and Jason Wu for Target!

The dress is fab! I had some friends who went but everything was gone already.

Make sure to read the new "rules" for WIWW. Not really rules but I'm asking people comment on at least two posts (main post+ 1 other) now.

Jane said...

I'm impressed that you snagged a Jason Wu x Target piece! My Target was cleaned out. :)

Marionberry Style said...

You look gorgeous!! Love this dress. I don't think it makes you a crazy person for going to 2 Targets (Um...maybe I only say that because I did too....lol!) but this dress makes it worthwhile :-)
And I am obsessed with how you paired it with leggings and booties! So perfect!

The dress looks fantastic on you! I love how you paired the cardigan, tights and boots with the dress.
I got two shirt's from the collection and I'm waiting on the black pleated skirt to come in the mail. I had to check the site numerous times before the skirt was restocked.

If I would have known how cute that dress would look on, I would have bought it. I had it in the dressing room and it just wasn't looking right on me. You look great!
