The ladies behind shopping blog WreakHavocNY arrived at the East Harlem Target at 6:08am yesterday for the Jason Wu launch. They weren't the first in line—there were twelve people ahead of them—but they did manage to grab some of the more popular pieces from the collection, including the bag and the nautical-striped top.
After the jump, watch them go through their haul and give away pieces to a few lucky passersby. Or, if you're feeling a bit more cynical this morning, head to their blog to watch clips of shoppers worrying about their safety, defying Target rules, and rationalizing bad behavior.
