Today the highly anticipated Phillip Lim for Target collaboration launched!! Target stores in my area opened at 8 am and they all had lines. I got my magazine, chair and bottled water and headed to my local Target, I arrived at 6:45am and I was the FIRST in line!!! Wooohhoooooo! Needless to say, I was able to get both of the bags that I wanted! Everything was going smooth until the bags ran out, the workers came with more on carts and that’s when the stampede started, people were pushing and shoving their way to the cart before they could even restock the shelf! After that, the bags were gone – only five minutes had passed! By the time I left there was still a good amount of clothes left and I hope everyone got what they wanted! As a shoe and bag LOVER, I will go on record and say this is my favorite collab since Jimmy Choo for H&M! Until the next collaboration!!!!

Loeffler Randall makes beautiful bags! Their Rider bag ( a bag that has straps on its backside to hook onto a bicycle) is coveted by bloggers and bag lovers around the world. I featured the floral Rider bag on my Instagram last week and got so many questions regarding it, leading me to this post today. The rider bag retails for $495 and up, which leaves out a lot of fashionable ladies who can’t squeeze it into their budgets. Buuuuuuuuut-Have no fear, if you’re a fashionista on a budget, you can have a very similarly stylish bag for only $27.80!!!!!
Loeffler Randall Rider Bag available at Zappos Couture.
Top handle bag available at Forever 21.
Unless you’ve been living under a fashion rock, you KNOW about the upcoming Phillip Lim and Target collaboration (If not, click HERE for more info) you must check out the pictures below. Target unveiled the lookbook for the collection and I’m sharing my FAVORITES with you! Like I mentioned in my previous post about this collection, I am ALL ABOUT the accessories! The scarves and bags are pretty amazing and there is an almost identical version of the Pashli bag for $35!!!!!!
I get sooooo excited about these designer collaborations because it’s really a great way for the everyday fashionista to get her hands on designer pieces, and it brings high-end designers into every home. I hear different opinions on this topic sometimes and thought I’d share my opinion. I hold a firm the belief that it’s great all the way around from designer to consumer. Of course nothing in these collaborations is “handmade” or made with the best material money can buy, but sometimes it’s NOT about spending the most money! True fashion lovers know that at the end of the day, fashion is about design and ideas- a particular designer’s artistic spin on a piece of clothing or an accessory. We pay to wear this art and to make personal statements with it! These collaborations use affordable and more accessible materials and mass produce the pieces to come down to a low price point, but other than that you are STILL purchasing a piece of the designer’s art -in this case Phillip Lim spent months brainstorming and sketching this collection-and that my friends IS FASHION!!!!!! As a lover of high- end and low-end fashion, I feel that mixing is the best way to go! I never buy a piece simply because of the designer label and never pass up a piece simply because of the non designer label! Basically, I will wear Louboutins with a Forever21 dress!!!!! In other words- if I love it, I buy it and you should too!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars!!!!!!! September 15th!
