All about Anna…

As we count down with anxious anticipation for Anna Sui’s line to debut at Target on Sunday, Target.com has added some preview pics and additional information. Check the site for availability of Anna’s line at your local store, as not all Target outlets will carry the collection.

Also: if you’re lucky enough to live in (or be visiting) NYC today through Saturday, you can shop the collection early at Target’s Pop-up Shop (54 Crosby at Spring St., 11am – 8pm each day).

I work down the street from the Pop-up Shop. It was pretty impressive! 3 floors and each floor had sections devoted to the Gossip Girl inspiration. There were mirrors hanging everywhere and the walls had hangings made of deep purple cloth. They even had live models lounging around dressed and made up to look like each girl.

Normally I find that Target runs a bit large, so I tried on an XS dress and top. I found that this line is a bit more true to size and I could have gone with a small. (I should have brought one of each size to the dressing room.)

Overall I wasn't too impressed. There are a few cute pieces. In my opinion most of the clothing has either a weird color scheme or strange shape. Many of the items were black. The neckline is high on the majority of the line. I'm a curvy girl and this looks strange on me, so automatically I avoided 75% of the collection.

I didn't end up buying anything. Yes, the prices were low for a designer but it's still Target. I'd rather wait for the sale if I'm going to buy clothing from there. Otherwise I'm taking my money and heading to Loehmann's, TJ Maxx, etc and getting the real designer deal for less.

Cents, thanks for your review! That's too bad you didn't like anything enough to buy it, though.
