Yes, the things we do for fashion, like waking up very early in the morning hoping to score a few items from the Phillip lim for Target collection. I said thank you to Target for giving the opportunity to a broke girl like me to wear something designed by Phillip lim.Now that I got that out of the way , let’s talk about my little shopping experience.
I woke up Sunday morning with a huge migraine, and yet that would not stop me from getting ready and hitting the road. With the help of some Tylenol, I was able to finally get out the house and got to the store right on time. Before I left the house I was telling myself ” I live in a small town , and I am sure no one really cares about Phillip lim“. I guess I was wrong because when I got there , there was about 30 people on the line already. I was still not worried because 80% of those in front of me were men, so they won’t most likely be interested in dresses or purses. I was WRONG. As soon as the doors opened these men ran in the store and literally picked up the purses by 10s. I swear within 10 seconds all the purses were gone. I stood there mouth opened looking around and asking myself “what just happened ?”Anyways I proceeded to go grab a few clothes to try and this animal print dress was one of them. Now you might be wondering , If you could not get a single purse then where the heck did you get the one you are carrying in this post ?
Dress, Bag: 3.1 Phillip lim for Target | Blazer: Forever21+ | Shoes: GoJane | Sunnies: Ebay | lipstick: Wet’n wild 911D
Although I was disappointed for missing out on all the goodies, while making my purchase , one of the managers told me that there is a store about 20 minutes from us that had a few purses left. I was not about to drive all the way there only to be told that they are all gone again. I went home , took care of my business but kept thinking to myself what if ? what if ? what if ? I finally decided to try one last time and drove to the next town and guess what ? they still had some purses left at that time of the day. Everything I got was given to me by someone who changed their mind about purchasing the item. I hold on to as many as I could and started sorting them out. I ended up home with 4 purses because this girl right here ^^^^^ could not decide which ones to keep. As I am typing this post the last 3 unused purses are staring at me and each one is telling me “keep me ! Keep me ! no keep me !. Now I wish I just stayed home and had never went back to Target. I am glad I got some stuff but seriously this whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth. Please remind me not to ever ever feed into this kind of fashion hype again. Target should really have some kind of restrictions on how many items you can buy at once, but then again they are in the business of making money.What is your take ? don’t be shy please share how you really feel about all the high end designers collaboration with Target or H&M ? Did you go shopping on Sunday ? did you get anything ? Are you one of those who really don’t care ? comment below.PS: I love the dress, it has a lot of stretch. I am wearing an Xl. The dress looks and feels just like any $30 dress would.I won’t recommend putting it in the washer it might just wash out.
