After bringing home a quiet extensive amount of Philip Lim’s collection for Target Sunday morning, my first thought was – I have to clean! I know you are probably thinking, you should’ve been celebrating, because you were one of the lucky happy shoppers. Yes, there were so many negative reviews and opinions, that I know were experience and not collection related, but I am not going to focus on that! So yes, I did clean, organized my clothes, threw out an idea for other Minnesota Bloggers to organize a Clothing Swap (let me know if you are interested)! Did laundry, laundry and more laundry. Went through my mail, my email, my magazines (most of which ended up in the recycling anyways!), cooked…
And finally, finally at about noon, I put some of it on! And loved it…
Boom Sweater – Philip Lim for Target, Green Button down – Philip Lim for Target, Mini Satchel in Taupe – Philip Lim for Target, Jeans – Express, Boots – Mossimo
Yesterday was an amazing, emotions filled day, I can’t even describe what a fashion collaboration hype can do to you! Was it worth it? I think so!
Me personal opinion on the bags is – they are good quality, very well made (unfortunately in China, but that’s where all of Target’s stuff comes from). The little metal hooks that attach the strap to the mini satchel are the only thing that look cheapish, but that’s just their color. The mini satchel fits a large wallet, the front pocket is perfect for your iPhone. I tried putting my Nokia Lumia 928 in there, and that wouldn’t fit! Plus car keys, a small makeup bag or kit. I can definitely compare it to my vintage Coach cross body that you see in a lot of pictures when it comes to what it can fit!
Now for the clothes – I know a lot of people were complaining and saying that the clothes were poor quality, the stitching was off, etc. But the pieces that I got all look well made (for Target – and that’s the one thing I think people most often forget, that it’s TARGET! It’s not the same manufacturer who creates for the designer, and even if it is, well, they won’t be getting paid as much!) I absolutely love the Boom Sweater! It was one of the things that I really wanted, and couldn’t be happier to get! Can’t wait to style the skirt and the other bags for you!
