3.1 Phillip Lim x Target Purchases

3.1 Phillip Lim x Target Boom Sweatshirt and mini cross body satchel in yellow, Isabel Marant shorts and sneakers, J Crew hat
I was able to buy my two coveted items from the Phillip Lim x Target collaboration when it launched online around 1am pacific time last Sunday morning: the mini cross body satchel in mustard yellow and the boom sweatshirt. The pieces were delivered on Friday and I love them! Even though I was so close to giving up at several points, it was worth staying up late, pushing the refresh button on my computer, as there is no way I was going to battle the crowds at the stores. The mini satchel is so cute and the pop of color works on a small bag. Love that it's cross body and the quality of the material and hardware is surprisingly good, considering its not real leather. Honestly, the material feels and looks pretty similar to the Pashli messenger bag that I bought (and returned) a few months ago (bought a raspberry PS 1 instead). I'm really glad that I returned the real Phillip Lim as this version is perhaps even cuter and a lot cheaper. I regret canceling my taupe mini satchel order Sunday morning, but as I figured then and still now, I don't need two bags of the same style. I am still in my graphic sweatshirt phase so the boom sweatshirt is a great addition to my collection, alongside the Prabal Gurung x Target and Kenzo Tiger sweatshirts. I like the fit of the boom sweatshirt more than the Prabal Gurung sweatshirt as it is longer in the body and sleeves. I've always been a fan of the Phillip Lim comic book graphic prints but missed out on buying any pieces a few seasons ago so was happy to that Target made a version. As for the rest of the Target collaboration, I am not a fan; I've seen a few pieces in store and I just don't like the fabric or details, just nothing special. Not sure I will buy anything else, even on sale.
