On the greatest day of the year, My Birthday May 4th, it only makes sense that an indelibly iconic collaboration between one of my favorite hangout spots Tar-jey [see also: Target] and the world's designer inspirations and Italian luxury brand Missoni, would announce their lovechild collection Missoni for Target available in September. Coincidence?! Hardly.
I thrifted this Missoni-like skirt during my giant Salvation Army haul (here) and have been pondering ways to work it into my wardrobe. It mimics the popular Missoni chevron stripes - which is basically a fancy way of describing a repeating "V" pattern - into which they are known for weaving several colors. Since it's too big for me to wear as a skirt I decided to try it out as a strapless dress below. I tried to give it some shape by cinching the waist with the second addition to my slowly growing thrifted tassel-belt collection, a mix of neon and metallic chord; the first was a giant magenta tassel belt (here).
To pay homage to the many looks of Missoni from seasons past and present I incorporated this thrifted light blue lace jacket by Poleci and thrifted jean vest that reminds me of their dusty blue pale looks from the Spring 2010 mens and womenswear collections, and a thrifted brightly dyed woven raffia purse by Bequizo International that could fit right in with the bold neon brights from Spring 2011. The thrifted rings are my everyday staples and the shoes are Tods's.
