I gotta hand it to Target, they know what creates buzz in the fashion world and they know how to keep their cash registers ringing. Unfortunately, they still don’t show plus sizes any love — the latest designer collaboration, Missoni for Target, is epic and amazing and just might change the designer collaboration game in terms of its scope….but it only offers clothing items that range from XS to XL and size 2 to 16. Womp.
I’m gonna have to put the pleated maxi skirt out of my mind, I guess. And those sweaters. And the maxi dress, too. But I’ll still be copping that poncho in XL, though – trust and believe.

Despite the clothing not being made for bellas like me, the Missoni collection for Target really is breathtaking. There are some truly lust-worthy items in the collection. For example!
This tote will retail for $34.99, and in the Missoni for Target lookbook, it’s styled with EVERYTHING. This could be the must-have affordable tote of the fall. And the clutch is super cute, and just $22.99!
You know I love my flats, and how cute are these??? $29.99, baby!
I was very pleasantly surprised by the range of hair accessories Missoni has designed for Target.
Satin headscarves for $14.99, headbands, $7.99.
The bobby pins! Love these! So cute. $6.99 a set.
For the home, I LOVE the espresso set. $39.99 and I can see multiple uses for all of these pieces. How cute would it be to have a tea party with these? There’s an array of very chic trays and platters in the collection.
I want this whole collection of barware. Martini glasses are $4.99, stemless wine glass $4.99, and the martini shaker $16.99.
As a frequent traveler, I was dying over the luggage. You won’t ever lose the Missoni for Target suitcase on the carousel! It’s $169.99, and the travel tote is $49.99.
And of course the bike is the piece de resistance. 3 speed ladies bike, $399.99. This could be the PERFECT replacement for my awesome Kona bike that got stolen. But I’d be afraid to ride it downtown and lock it anywhere, TBH.
This is just a fraction of the Missoni for Target collection, bellas. There’s menswear and home office storage and laptop sleeves and vases and frames! You really could trick your whole life out in Missoni stripes, if you’re so inclined. The collection will be available Sept. 13 through Oct. 22, 2011 at all Target stores and Target.com. And I have a feeling it’s all gonna go FAST.
