Oh, it'll be available online. However, The Target Style FB page has said that they don't have a scheduled start time. Your best bet is to stay on the Target site and have the Target Style FB page up in another tab to keep track of what people are posting.

Got back from my Target run not too long ago. I was only in there for half an hour, which is unheard of for me. There were six other women waiting in front of the store with me, and we were all wanting a bag or two. Luckily, they had enough for all of us. I grabbed the gray satchel and the mini yellow satchel.

As far as the clothes go, they all seemed to be true to size, so yay! (The sizing is XS-XL for everything though, which I found to be odd. I guess they wanted to keep sizing as simple as possible.) (EDIT: I just saw that the flowy blue dress is in traditional even numbers sizing, so I guess that's not everything...) I only tried on four things since my main focus was the bags. There was a long grey tank top with a simple, but pretty rhinestone design on the front. It's a pretty cool basic, worth checking out. I tried on the gray BOOM sweatshirt, which was pretty comfy. Also worth checking out. There was a black, dressy tank that was actually pretty nice. It zips all the way down the front, so it's easy to take on and off. Same with the shirt dress, it also zipped down the front. The fabric for both pieces were very sturdy, not cheap and flimsy at all. I went around feeling all of the other clothes before I left. The skirts and blouses were all that cheap polyester material, so I avoided those. (Although there were also the tanks in that same print as the shirt dress, and they were the same sturdy fabric.) There were a few men's sweaters and shoes; that's really all I remember for the guys.

I took a few pics. All the items I'm wearing are size S. (Please excuse the horrid under-eye bags. That's from four hours of sleep.) All pics belong to me. (Sorry about the size, I've tried twice to shrink them, but they go back to being obnoxiously large.)

I think you look great! i chanced on the Medium poly shirt because i was worried it might run small (like nearly every other target collaboration) and i like poly sometimes because i dont have to worry about putting it in the washer.

love this shot of the yellow bag from vogue.com

I ended up getting the mini satchels in all the colors, the backpack and a couple handbags. I wasn't too impressed with the quality of the clothing, but I never have high hopes for the quality anyway. The bags were pretty good considering they are fake leather. Let's see how they hold up.

I ordered the medium satchel online and it was a pain in the patootie to do so. When I tried to add more than 2 items to the cart, something would disappear out of the cart. I ended up ordering 2 of the medium satchels in black--quite accidently. But am glad I did.

I went to the store and waited in a line of about 100--I was about number 45. By the time I got in, the bags were gone as were the tuxedo pants I wanted. I did get the peplum black tank--I just love how it zips up in the front. It is actually very nicely made.

I ended purchasing the Mens Pique Pocket Tee, Colorblock French Terry pullover and I love the quality of it, there wasn't a big selection in my store but I think am in love with it especially the pricing which was very affordable.

This is the first and last time I will wake up early for one of these collab launches. Target.com's handling of this collab was horrendous. From not giving a clearcut launch time to releasing the most coveted items-- the bags-- at the last possible moment (nearly 4 hours past what many thought would be a midnight launch). I had to rely on twitter links to get the bags I wanted. Links kept changing or coming up with errors. It was utterly ridiculous. It's clear customer service was their last priority. It was more about creating a faux frenzy over the collection.

To add insult to injury after losing precious hours of sleep I went into my nearest target and they had plenty of the bags I wanted.

Awful experience aside, I ended up getting the black mini satchel and the black crossbody. Those were really the only items I wanted so I'm pleased. For 35 bucks I can't complain. The quality is decent, the bags appear to be sturdy and I love the magnetic closures on the front.

I went to my local target on Sunday (Westwood in LA) and found pretty much everything there. There were some sizes that were gone and I didn't see the accessories (maybe they were elsewhere) but otherwise everything was there.

I found only one of the leopard sweaters left and it was in my size, but I didn't get it because it wasn't well made. In my picture, you can see the fabric was not cut or stitched right and fraying. It wasn't like that on the other sleeve, so it was obviously some mistake. Its a shame, the print is cute.

I'm really interested in the sparkle sweater in cream (though there seems to be a lot more blue available on ebay). Has anyone purchased it? Any comment on sizing/quality?
