STRICKEN! # A McQ for Target

I am super stricken here, people! Let me preface this by saying that when I found out about the Alexander McQueen for Target line a month ago, I was pretty stoked. So I looked up the looks, and became a little disappointed. There was nothing -- save for a gorgeously punky grey patterned dress -- that I was excited about buying.

I visited my local Target today and decided to give the collection a once-over in person and was irritated to find that none of the pieces were for sale at my Target. So I got home and looked it up. There is ONE Target store in my metropolitan area that is selling it -- which means that by now everything is sold out. The grey dress that I so coveted is already sold out online, and considering I wear the most average size and have only one store to shop from means I will have to go without.

Why do you tease us, designers?? It is utterly unfair that because someone doesn't live in the top 5 most populated cities that it is somehow assumed that they don't own a TV, a computer with internet access, or have access to a bookstore with a newsstand. Oh, or like fashion. Or know who designers are. Whenever I tell people where I'm from, they ask me if I lived on a farm. WHAT?? I've never even been on a farm in my life. It is so stereotypical to judge those that don't live in NYC, L.A., Chicago, Miami, etc. as being dumb hillbillies who wear overalls and chew on grass. I have a basic right to love fashion, and I think that designers need to pull their heads out of their butts and put these capsule collections in all stores. Don't even get me started on H&M. At least I live in a big enough city where ONE Target gets A McQ. We have 3 H&Ms but I never set eyes on the Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Roberto Cavalli or Comme de Garcons collections.

Rant over.
