You can clearly see hints of the nautical trend still emerging for spring 2012.  Jason Wu's Target collection definitely reflects a 'sailor vibe' in some cases but there is also a lot of delicate, romantic silhouettes and fabrics.  Very feminine and girly, which is perfect for spring.  The prices are low for a Jason Wu piece as well...obviously.  I am going to go try on all of the pieces above, as long as I can get my hands on them in time.  Collections like these, following the history of Target's guest designers, usually FLY of the shelves (and end up on eBay).  Get there early for the best selection.

As of today's date there is a $5 off $50 with free shipping discount code on retailmenot.com for online Target purchases.  If you shop this collection online be sure to check retailmenot before you purchase anything.


  1. I can appreciate Jason Wu, but I don't think any of these pieces would look good on my body. And this collection will probably be available for all of 2 hours, if that. I went the morning that the Missoni for Target collection launched and it was about 11:00 am (Target opened at 9:00 am) and there was hardly anything left, but the products were all over ebay for three times what the retail cost was. Quite disappointing.

  2. I literally CANNOT wait for the Jason Wu release! You chose such stunning options :) Love your blog...
