So on September 15, 2013 at 4:21am I magically awoke from my deep sleep and checked twitter to see if they released the Phillip Lim for Target collection online and to my surprise they did. I stumbled out of my bed to get my computer to shop my little heart out. I did not want to deal with the lines and the crowds so I thought online shopping was my best option. I knew which piece I wanted definitely (The Boom Sweatshirt), but I was still conflicted on what else to purchase. Many of the New York bloggers that I follow happened to shop the pre collection during fashion week and started wearing their pieces already, and although they looked great in everything (Shout out to Glam Nikki) I wasn’t sure if the pieces I thought I wanted were for me. Plus I’m trying to be a “smarter shopper.” Many of the pieces that I wanted I knew that I wouldn’t get that many wears out of them because of the distinct patterns. I needed to get the pieces that were the most functional for my wardrobe and the pieces that I absolutely loved, not just liked. I also set a specific budget that I did not want to break.
So I ended up choosing four things. After weeks of waiting for my purchases to arrive they finally came last week! I was so excited. Although online shopping is less of a hassle, the waiting time sucks.
Later that day I went to Target with my mother and there were tons of pieces left and in my size. They were all over the place but I was able to see if I missed anything online and I didn’t. I got everything that I wanted and needed, with the exception of one handbag. I was looking for a presentation clicker in electronics and saw one of the workers stashing bags behind the register to purchase later. If she had the bag that I wanted you know I would have said something, but she didn’t so I let her slide lol.
I’m just happy that I can finally wear the things that I purchased and carry the oh so fabulous bags! Ok I know I’m about 2 weeks late, but hey it’s better late than never.
