Jason Wu for Target, Toronto Pop-Up Shop

Once I reached the front of the line, staff reminded everyone that each person may only purchase up to 3 items. BUT a limited edition $10 Target tote bag would not count towards your 3 items and you may purchase as many as you wish. Let's not forget, all proceeds from the sale goes to United Way Toronto.

Now let's get to the good part! Clothes! {Click here to view the entire collection for Target}

 The shirt is very boxy, fits big, lacks shape and could be worn best tucked in. 
Many around me were complaining about this shirt's shape. {Available HERE}

 This dress looks great in the photo but also lacks shape. Only thing I like about this piece is the pearl neckline. The rack was full of this dress {Available HERE} 

 This skirt was on my "To Buy" list but once I tried it on, I was completely disappointed. 
The pleats on this skirt are terrible and the band on this skirt was stiff. I found the waist band to small and the thick material made the pleats flare out more. {Right Picture} The thin model looks bloated in the stomach due to the stiff waist band and poorly made pleats. {Available HERE} If you want to look preggo

Many women around me {Thin and meaty} were trying this shirt on and nobody looked happy with it on. It's a boxy cut and the arm holes were too big on most women. {Available HERE}

 I had seen a women try on this dress and it looked amazing on her...She looked about 5'7 and was ultra thin.... I think this dress would look best worn open with a tank top and shorts {Available HERE}

This trench was in everybody's hands, for $45 CDN you can't go wrong. The detailing makes the coat more unique and the buttons say "Jason Wu" on it. The coat is thin and the size runs large, something to keep in mind...the coat flares out at the waist. {Available Navy HERE and Black HERE}I bought this in black.

 For a $20 blouse I am impressed. If worn without a thick tank top {Top right} it has a very nice flow. When worn with a tank top underneath {Top left} it looks boxy. Most women trying on the top complained about the top being too boxy, I personally liked it. I like the shape, neck bow tie and the fine detailing on the sleeves. Again for $20 it's a great blouse to wear alone or under a blazer.
 {Available Navy HERE and Pink HERE}I bought this in navy.

 Save the best for last. I can't believe after all that lining up and madness, the only thing I'm excited about is this scarf! I love it! The material and the pattern, only for $10! This is the only item I know I will get the most use out of. {Available HERE}

Over all the experience was worth the trip downtown but the collection isn't. I over heard many women saying the collection was cheap, poorly made and the sizing was off. I haven't purchased or tried on any clothing from Target so I can't compare it to other Target clothing but I do know it's not something I'd purchase normally. Since it was all for charity my purchase was kinda all worth it.
