Did you get any of the Missoni for Target Collection?

Did you get your hands on any of the hot Missoni collection? I was in Target at 8:30am and they had already sold out of most items except for a few glasses and scarves. I saw  people with carts piled high with Missoni that I am guessing they are planning to resell.

Bummed the items I wanted were already all gone and the Target website has been down all morning due to heavy traffic. I am sure Target Execs are doing the happy dance this will be an early Black Friday for sales, just hoping the release more items for the rest of us!

 

Did you get anything?  Does it frustrate you when all the items are sold out early to people buying them strictly to resell? Come join the discussion

Hot Fellow Shoppers Make You Less Likely To Buy.

New research shows that when you feel unhappy about your body while trying on an outfit in a store and you see a hot customer or salesperson wearing that same outfit, you are definitely less likely to buy it.

ScienceDaily (our go-to site, of course) reported on the new study, published in the Journal of Consumer Research. The authors of the paper write:

“If [the low self-esteem customer] sees a dress on an attractive consumer in the store and is trying on the same dress herself, as she looks in the mirror she now thinks to herself, ‘That dress is really cute and stylish on me, but compared to her, I look terrible!’”
Makes perfect sense to us. When we try on a pair of jeans that only sorta, kinda fit us and we see a super cute girl waltz out of the dressing room with wearing the same jeans to perfection… yes, we will definitely hang that denim back on the rack.

Does the same thing apply to sales clerks, who are essentially hired to look good in the clothes? The authors of the study say “yes,” questioning whether it’s even a smart idea to have to salespeople wear the store brand clothes– especially, we’d add, in a place like Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch where the sales kids are basically swimsuit models.

Then again, the study highlights, the findings only apply when shoppers have low self-esteem to begin with. If you love your body and feel great in it, seeing a lithe 15-year-old salesgirl in a size zero version of the dress you’re trying on won’t be so bad.

So what an easy fix — just have great self-esteem!

Or, you know, do what we do and go shoe shopping. You can never feel fat in a good pair of shoes.

What do you think does shopping with “hot” friends slow you down? Does a beautiful sales clerk make you want to slink out of the store? I would love to hear your thoughts come join the discussion.
