Did you score any goodies from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection?
From what I saw on instagram and twitter, shopping at Target on the morning the collection was released was reminiscent of Black Friday with crowds, lines and craziness. One of the few benefits of living in a smaller, less fashion-forward city is that there aren't many people rushing out to buy these designer collabs. I made it to my local Target at around 10 am, the Phillip Lim section was relatively untouched and there was only myself and another lady looking at the collection. However, there was not a lot of variety available--my Target only had handbags in black and taupe, did not carry any of the pajama sets, and had none of the clothing with leather details. I made my way to another Target and the scene was basically the same; I found a few more handbags (including the yellow mini satchel that IMO was way too small to be $35) but still no leather or pajama sets.
I purchased 4 items-- the animal print pullover and skirt, a floral print blouse, and a black top-handle crossbody. I really wanted one of the large tote-bags, but I just could not bring myself to spend $50+ for a bag from Target no matter how cute it was. My favorite piece by far is the animal print skirt--I cannot wait to wear it to work, for drinks, on date night, and everywhere else in between. Below are some ideas on how to rock it, dressed up or dressed down!

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collaboration. This collection is super sophisticated, but does include fun pieces in graphic animal or camouflage prints. Above, I have featured a few of my favorite items from the collection. I've budgeted for 4 items from the collection, and I know for a fact that one of them will be one of the handbags (the yellow one is calling my name!)
What items from the collection do you have your eye on?
