I was still so exhausted from my Target from Missoni debacle back in September (it literally took almost a whole day to order a skirt and a couple of baby items) that I didn’t even attempt to jump online when the Jason Wu for Target collection went on sale Super Bowl Sunday. As is becoming the norm with the discount chain’s designer collaborations, most of the collection sold out within hours, so when I finally did make it to my local Target this weekend there were only a sad 7 items total left.
But the almost empty racks did contain an adorable navy floral chiffon dress, and guess who has it in her wardrobe? The first lady, who basically put the Taiwan-born, American-educated designer on the map when she donned a dramatic ivory Wu-designed gown for her husband’s 2009 inaugural ball. Mrs. Obama wore the $39.99 dress over the weekend at a press event in Florida.
