So. Phillip Lim for Target. The lookbook for this collection is mind-blowing. While there have been certain pieces from other Target collaborations, I’ve never loved an entire collection as much as this one. Perhaps it’s because it’s work appropriate while still being stylish. Also, it has PJs. This collection comes out on September 15 and you best believe I will be at my local Target, elbowing bishes for the items I want. Below are the items I’ve got my eye on, keeping in mind my P333 mission of buying items I LOVE (which can really only be determined once I’ve tried them on and/or felt them up) and fit into my style.
My “run for them and trip people if I need to” items are the Trench, the Satchel, and the Sparkle Sweater. I’ll certainly try anything on that I like the look of in store, because these collections always go on sale after a few weeks. I wouldn’t get that leather jacket at $249, but $125? Definitely maybe! And of course, I could try that sweater on and look like a massive blueberry, or the crotch of those pants could hang too low, or the fabric on the sparkle dress is awful. But having a plan of action is better than walking in blind and then buying everything. I’ve been there, I know.
I’ve mentioned that I am going to stop buying clothes from Target, but I’ve found that the designer collaborations have a higher quality of clothing because they have a brand name on them, and those designers aren’t going to put out clothing of an awful quality. My Prabal Gurung skirt is from Target and it’s held up remarkably well, where as my Mossimo jersey maxi dress died after one go in the washing machine. There have also been items in Target Designer collections that have seemed really cheaply made, including items I drooled over in the lookbook, and I’ve bought them anyway. No more!
