i have always had a relationship with clothes.

Before I get into today's post, I did a guest post for Feast. Fashion. Faves. the other day. It was a dramatic fall makeup tutorial - and I'm super happy with how it turned out! You can check out the post here if you haven't seen it yet!

Now, back to business....

By this point, you all know about the Phillip Lim for Target collection. (And you've probably all added a few of these gorgeous pieces to your wardrobe by now as well!) Even though this is a little bit late, I thought that I would share my experience.

It was very very early in the morning when my mom, my sister and I lined up outside of our local Target store. Despite how early we got to the store, there were still fifteen or so people in front of us in line. We spent the wait looking at pictures of the collection on my sister's phone - and coming up with a strategy. Each of us knew exactly what items we were looking to grab. Me? My mission was the BOOM! sweater dress. It was all I was after!

Once the doors open it was a mad rush of people. Girls were running, grabbing, pushing, pulling, was complete and utter madness! Between my mom, sister, and I, we were able to get a lot of really amazing pieces. I did get that fantastic BOOM! dress - sadly in the wrong size. But beggars can't be choosers. I bought it anyway! Thankfully, I was able to nab (almost) everything that I was after.

Ready to see what Phillip Lim pieces I picked up?

Phillip Lim 3:1 bag, BOOM! dress, sweater, top, scarf, and pajama set. 

First up, this gorgeous mustard coloured bag. It comes with a detachable strap (which I tend to take off) and is super versatile. It comes in such a great fall colour, so I find myself using it an awful lot. Already it has become one of my all-time favourite bags!

Now, for the BOOM! dress - my absolute favourite. I just love the fun, bold design and how comfy and stylish it is. I cannot get over how gorgeous it is! I really wish that I was able to get it in a smaller size, but I am glad to have it at all, to be honest!

Next up? The bedazzled navy sweater! What I love about this piece is how simple it is. It is a super warm and comfy navy sweater, but it has just a hint of fun with the bedaalzed neckline. It's is a great way to stay warm and look great.

The next Phillip Lim item I bought turned out to be my favourite piece - even though I didn't think it would look good on me. I adore the colours, the print, and how comfortable and flattering it is. Here is the stunning animal print blouse!

The scarf had the same BOOM! print that the dress had. I haven't had a chance to wear this one yet, but it's so beautiful that I'm sure I'll be wearing it constantly this fall season.

And the last addition to my wardrobe? The animal print Phillip Lim pajamas! They are super cute and really comfy too. I just love wearing them - they make me feel like a million bucks.

Did you buy anything from Phillip Lim for Target? What do you think of these pieces?

  16. It's a good thing we don't have Target. We do have lots of H&Ms though, and whenever they come up with a collab, things get ugly here! I'm already waiting to hear hat stories will rise after the H&M x Isabel Marant collection!

    You've got some pretty rad pieces there. Looks like you scored quite a lot! I love the anmal print sweater most and of course, the mustard bag! xo
