The Like in Zac Posen for Target

I had been waiting all week to attend the Zac Posen for Target Launch Party at the New Yorker Hotel. The party from 8-11pm kicked off the 24-hour shopping event, in which doors opened to the public from 11pm on April 15th to 11pm April 16th. Upon arrival, attendees were given feathered masks and a polaroid of themselves during a quick photo opp. Racks of clothes were spread out on both sides of the venue on the first and 2nd floor.

Since I was too busy shopping and trying on clothes before the dressing rooms filled up, I missed Zac Posen's arrival and the influx of celebrities including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Selma Blair, Ginnifer Goodwin, Parker Posey, Mena Suvari, Michelle Trachtenberg, Olivia Palermo and Kelly Bensimon. Also spotted were Coco Rocha, Alek Wek, Joe Zee, Patricia Fields, Theodora and Alexandra Richards.

I absolutely love Zac Posen for Target! The XS fits me well, but what looks like a cute and flirty mini dress or skirt on a model, looks more conservative on me because it turns out to be a longer in length. Which is why I didn't buy the convertible dress, or bother to try on the floral print brocade dress which I absolutely loved. I did end up buying the pink sailor dress, pink/tie-dye pleated tie top and multi colored and black braided belts. Too bad I wasn't taller. The safety-pin print gown was gorgeous.

Even though I had gotten there early, everyone was making a mad dash to grab everything they wanted to try on in their size. It felt like I was at a sample sale - shoppers reaching for the same item and or waiting for you to put it down.

It's amazing that the clothes on the racks managed to stay intact while guests enjoyed drinks and hors d'oeuvres. The Like put on a great performance and DJ Kid America spun some great tunes upstairs.

As I left at about 10:30, the public line to get in and shop at 11pm was well down the block. I couldn't even see the end of the line. Zac Posen for Target launches on Sunday, April 25th at Target stores and at I definitely am considering buying more of the collection so I may find myself at Target next Sunday morning!
