Zac Posen for Target: What Did You Buy?

Zac Posen for Target: What Did You Buy?

The Zac Posen for Target collection went on sale late last night, and by this morning, a few of the items were already sold out! I try not to get caught up in the shopping frenzy, but honestly, who am I kidding?! Target knows how to get a girl excited and I am powerless to resist. So what did I buy? Well, this morning I didn't actually get anything because the item I wanted most—namely, the tuxedo blazer—was not yet available online. But when I returned to my computer this evening, the tuxedo blazer was up—YAY!—so I bought that for $49.99, as well as the black ruched skirt ($34.99), and the tie-dye tank dress ($29.99). Not what I'd consider the "standout" pieces by any stretch, but I went for items that I felt I would actually wear —pieces that would work with my figure, my style and my budget. I hope they fit, and if not, I can always return them! So. What did YOU buy?
