ShopDiary deserves some sort of award for usefulness in fashion blogging. This weekend, their blogger ran over to the Target on Sepulveda in Sherman Oaks, blasted through the Alexander McQueen collection in record time, and then wrote a heroically detailed post about it. She's a short girl who wears a small size, so her advice will be more helpful for the petite among us, but here's what she found:

1.) There aren't big signs for the merch, so you have to hunt for it.

2.) The store had "everything but the black coated poplin trench coat, tattoo print scarf and the leather jacket."

3.) Worth buying: The tiger-print tee (good quality), the Liela tee (soft), and the menswear-inspired cropped blazer and pants.

4.) More questionable: The tiger-print dress (weirdly giant armholes) and the tattoo-print dress (overpriced at $80), plus the high-waisted skirt and the jumpsuit (not flattering, at least if you're shorter than, say, Blake Lively.)

Significant side note: ShopDiary found out that Sherman Oaks had the collection via this very helpful Racked commenter, who points out that it's also at Burbank and Woodland Hills.
