Newest Target Collaboration...

To those who follow the Target collaborations, the boutique shops opened today.  I am focusing on the apparel and accessories from The Webster, a chic shop in Miami.  First of all, I anticipated a reaction like the Missoni and Jason Wu collabs, so I got there early.  The parking lot had a smattering of cars.  I walked in and there was no one looking at the new pieces.  I was actually able to shop without bumping into wild women with their carts filled to the brim and the dressing room with a line that snaked into the maternity area.

I was underwhelmed by the offerings.  There are a variety of prints and colors and solids in the dresses, tops, and  bottoms. Sizing for women, petites, plus, girls and infants.  There are a few pieces for men.  A wider selection is posted on the website and many items are available as of this writing. Some pieces are online only.

Now for the pieces that I liked.  A neutral striped plaid dress was my favorite.  The fabric feels good though it is 100% polyester with a partial lining in polyester. Sometimes polyester gets a bad rap. The elastic in the back of the waistband has zig-zag stitching that makes it interesting from the front and the back.
There is a cute sweater set that caught my eye in pink and melon and navy.
In addition, there is a dynamite print "robe" in the sleepwear section that could easily be worn as a wrap tunic with the navy slip/nightgown underneath.
Some of the pieces are definitely influenced by the tropical vibe. Accessories include a selection of scarves and totes and jewelry.
