Hype That Was Hella Hairy

Yes, I obviously fell prey to Missonigeddon yesterday and I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like it.

People were dragging 2 and sometimes 3 carts around while on the phone to a cohort at another store discussing which items they need MORE of to make a set of 12.  I saw Kathy as I just wandered around the store wide eyed..she seemed to share my sense of shock about the whole thing!

I got there about 8:20 and I didn’t see a single person in the store that didn’t have hoards of Missoni in their cart.  No one was buying toothpaste that morning (except me), and there were several items I never saw.  Either my store didn’t stock it, or it was already sold out.

I got a couple of votive holders, which are gorgeous when lit.


And apparently, the hottest item in my cart was a pair of these, since several people ogled them and asked if I was sure I was going to get them.

The dressing room was kinda hilarious..everyone was coming out into the aisles modeling their wares for each other since every rejected item had a line of people waiting for a turn to try it on…

The staff was truly shell shocked.  They just kept saying over and over, “I had NO IDEA it was going to be like this…”

Yes, my friend, I’m sure when you walked into work this morning, you had no idea that as you frantically unpacked boxes, there would be a platinum haired, diamond encrusted vulture standing on top of you waiting to snatch it from your trembling hands.

They clearly hadn’t been mentally or physically prepared for Missonigeddon.

Don’t even get me started on the prices this stuff is selling for on ebay.  Capitalism can be very ugly at times.
