Jason Wu for Target was unleashed to the masses this morning, and by 7 a.m., people were telling me they couldn't order anything online. It was sold out.
Since I was up blogging about my morning paper, I decided to scurry over to the Tar-jaay to see what kind of scene we'd be dealing with in Wilmington. Wouldn't you know it? There was already a line. This picture was taken around 7:30 but there were plenty of people who showed up right before the store's opening at 8 a.m. By the way, it was really fun meeting these girls! Some brought their devoted hubbies (nice!), two - including me - were from Wilmington, one came from Topsail, and two were from Southport. Then we had more people show up, but we didn't get to chit chat.
Surprisingly or not... it didn't seem to be too crazy. There was a lot of fast-walking and quick-grabbing, but all the ladies in line talked about a little shopping etiquette before the doors opened. I think that little bit went a long way. We had a couple of line cutters, but I suppose that's going to happen.
Oh... and for those of you who may not know...Jason Wu was thrown into the spotlight after First Lady Michelle Obama selected his gown to wear to the 2009 Inauguration. He was 27 at the time.
