Jason Wu for Target: Front Flap Satchel + Pictures

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been so busy with job searching and school and everything. However, I was able to get the Jason Wu for Target bag! It was such a hassle. It was pretty chaotic on Target's facebook page. Random people were posting stuff like "OMGGOTTHEKITTYSCARF WHEEEEEEBLAHBLAHBLAH" even when theoretically, only 3 dresses were online. Luckily, I go to a school with an excellent computer science program. My friend wrote a piece of code for me in Perl and it basically sifted through all of Target's links until it found the bag. I'm so glad she did because then I was able to buy the bag at 2 am. Everything was officially open at 3 am. Everything also sold out when I woke up again at 10 am. As of right now, you can't buy Jason Wu for Target online. Well, at least I can't for some reason haha. 


Moral of the story: Be a CS major. 




 I really dislike how in all the lookbooks, this bag looks like it's made of white and black pleather. It's actually white canvas and black pleather. I mean, all the other bags were *clearly* not leather. Why was this one photographed to look like pleather then? 


Verdict: I like, but I don't think that it was worth 50. However I'm not going to sell it on ebay for like 200 dollars. I think that it's ridiculous. Honestly Target, you need to make a restriction on how many people can buy in stores and online. It stops vultures from buying everything in the store and then selling it for 4 times the price on Ebay. The whole fucking point of these "X designer for Target" lines is so that it's affordable for everyone- not for those who wait in line at 8 am and then buy out the entire corner of the store.

I totally agree with you! They need a better system for these designer releases, almost like black friday!

I agree w/everything you said! It's too bad they charged THAT much for a bag. $50 is not affordable for Target, even if it's a designer collab and the quality isn't as great as what you see online. And online vultures, I know!!!! It's ridiculous how many things on eBay are overpriced!
