When I was seven, I had a pink Esprit sweatshirt that I refused to take off. It was huge, and in the winter I wore it with jeans and in the summer, I think I convinced my mom it was alright to wear it with heart-print tights and sneakers, and that's it. I was an early scenester. I suspect a lot of girls have the same memory - their Esprit sweatshirt that defined being a girl. Whether that memory is enough to generate a comeback is hard to say, especially since the rest of the brand's clothes seem inspired by The Hills girls. Esprit's heritage shirt sells for $19.50 at all Esprit stores, and their website. It doesn't come as a giant pink sweatshirt... yet.

Jason Wu for Target Fallout: 11,000 Items Currently on eBay and Two Re-Sellers Buy Out the Entire Collection in a Miami Target (We've Got Video)
Well, that was fast! Since going on sale at midnight on February 5, Jason Wu for Target has almost completely sold out--and over 11,000 items are already on eBay. Though this time the online launch went a little smoother than Missoni for Target's infamous site meltdown (but not without a few hiccups--read our first account later today), items still went lightening speed quick. We checked this morning and there is currently only one item still available online--this pleated blue top. Brick-and-mortar didn't fare much better, with most locations selling out of some items within minutes. But the worst story we've heard of yet is the midtown Miami store whose complete stock of the collection was bought by a couple with the intent to resell, as the video below, sent to us by a tipster, shows.
