Anna Sui hits Target today... just not at my store

I took a trip to Target today to do a little shopping and to peep the new Anna Sui for Target collection.  The collection has not made it to my local store yet and I doubt if it will because the stores in my area rarely get in the designer lines.  It kind of bummed me out because I was hoping to try on a few pieces. Has anyone seen the collection in person yet?  What do you think of it?

 I did notice that my store is starting to get some fall items, and the pieces that I'm seeing are really cute.  I can't wait until it cools down!  I snapped a few pics of some items I liked.  I didn't take many because a sales associate walked up to me and told me that I couldn't take pics of the merchandise.
 
(l)- (r):  Mossimo Black boho print dress $29.99; Xhilaration cowl neck sweater $14.99;  Xhilaration belted tunic sweater $22.99 
I love this ruffle front blouse from Xhiliration, so I decided to try one on.  It looked okay on, but it didn't feel right for some reason- I wasn't comfortable in it.  This one went back to the rack.
I was going to take pics of this shoe and this one, but that's when the sales associate walked up to me and told me I couldn't take pics of the merchandise.  Oh well.  I ended up buying this burnout graphic tee because I need more tees to lounge around in anyway, but I will definitely consider Target when it's time to start my fall shopping.

The irony of them telling you not to take photos ... somehow things look so much better in person than they do on their website.

I would have never picked out the Merona Vilma Suede Peep-Toe Pumps based on the photo on their website but they are gorgeous. Photo here:http://clothingcult.com/?p=246

Oh and that cowl neck sweater, the one they don't seem have on their website, is cute and I bet I can't find it at the local Target. Sigh...

I made the 40 minute drive to the Target that carried the Anna Sui line because I was searching for a skirt I saw in a magazine. They didnt have it, but the line is very nice but way too overpriced for Target. I will probably buy when it goes on sale.

I got that blue sweater in black, it looks SO much better on than on the hanger. I can't wait to wear it!

^^^ yes.

The reason that you cannot take pics inside of the store is that sometimes their competitors come in and steal their designs, or their setup. Which is ironic because a lot of the time Target's clothing is "inspired" by other designers, especially the shoes. Hopefully the sales associate was nice about telling you that you couldn't take pics.

Hey CC!!

I loved the Anna Sui Collection. Unfortunately, the prices were a little too high for my grad school budget.

The boho dress is on sale in South Florida locations for 19.99. The same dress is also available in a blue print that is a little less Boho-looking. They'd look great paired with a pair of boots, although I'm not sure yet how I feel about boots in Florida. What's your take?

Also, some great fall trends were already on clearance. I scored a great chocolate brown draped jersey skirt for $4.98 and a black military/band inspired jacket for $20.98. I am a little unsure about what to wear with the draped skirt, but I still love it!

@andi: i think that dress would be awesome with boots- just not right now, maybe when it cools off. oh yeah, i forgot it was on sale.

I checked out the Anna Sui collection, and while the prices were indeed on the higher side, there was a particular dress I could not say no to, and it looked like it could sell out so I went for it. It's the black and grey herringbone dress, with velvet trim and studs around the panels. (From the Serena looks) It's a great fit, and with tights and boots, I think I can get a lot of wear out of it. As for other pieces... I'll wait for the sale :)
