Unpopular Opinions

8.13.2011
I'm full of them lately!

I've seen blog after blog raving about the Missoni for Target sneak peek over on all the way up here, but I'm just not feeling it. I'd go as far as to say as it's just, well, ugly. Sure a lot of it's got a chevron pattern, but what doesn't these days?! The color palette doesn't appeal to me in any way either. Maybe it's just me, but I won't be knocking down the doors at Target. No, not even for the bike.

    I'm not a fan. I saw the ad in House Beautiful this week and none of it appeals to me.

  2. The Colors are not me either...

  3. I'm not a fan either. I saw maybe 2 things I would consider, but nothing that screams BUY ME! Sometimes i think people get wrapped up in a label and buy things that really is not even their style. I'm guilty of it!

  4. Whew! Thanks ladies, I was starting to think maybe I was crazy or something lol.

  5. It's just off. The chevron reminds me a little of the new bugaboo stroller blanket, but it's just not as cool.

  6. Huh. Hmmmm. I like it and I don't. I think the wellies are adorable but, then again, I'm a sucker for a patterned rubber boot. The dinnerware? Bleh! I think I'd be nauseas looking at it, definitely not the look you want with dinner plates. The scarves aren't horrible, but would have to be used in moderation.

    Over all, I'm just "meh" on it. I am a lover of colour and pattern, but this doesn't have me excited.

  7. Not that I could afford it anyway, but Missoni has never particularly appealed to me either. I do love though that Target offers these collections from designers that would otherwise be out-of-reach.

  8. I thought the same thing. I usually love Missoni, but am just not feeling this collection. Weird.

  10. Definitely some things are better than others, but still just not anything I'm super excited about.

  11. Yes I agree - it's a great idea from Target, but just not a fan of this particular collection.

  12. I agree! The only part that I liked was the little baby onesie and blanket.

  13. Are we all getting a bit sick of chevron? I think so. It's too ubiquitous now.

    Some items look nicer than others. The gum boots, the luggage, the clothing with turquoise in it...

  14. I agree with you! It got to the point where so many other people were raving about it that I thought maybe I was missing something....but no. I don't like it. Which is just fine because Target does not need any more of my money! =) Except for diapers, of course.

  15. Yeah there were a couple of nicer items - those being two of them! Still nothing that would've stood out to me in a lineup though.

  16. Yeah it's too bad - it's such a great pattern but it is so common now that it's becoming a bit tired.

  17. Is something messed up with the timeline also? I see bathing suits and outdoor tableware and we're quickly approaching Fall!

  18. I agree with you. It's all awful. The bike, however, is too hideous for words (and I'm a serious bike collector, so that's really saying something).
