phillip lim for target

On September 15th my reminder alarm went off.  I got on line because the Phillip Lim for Target merchandise was going to be available that day. And I wanted at least one of the bags. It was about 9:30 am. All of the ones I wanted were already unavailable!

I checked Racked to see how it was going in New York. Sold out within minutes! Check out the article here.

Well, I live in Michigan, not NYC anymore so I rushed over to my local Target. Here’s what I saw:

IMG_2262-1When I was paying, the cashier asked me if these were nice bags because the last customer had bought 6 of them! That made me feel better. Ok, so I went a little overboard, but I haven’t bought a bag for myself in ages.  And these are definitely way less expensive. See how I’m rationalizing?

I’ve already used the big tote and the little bag. They are very smart looking don’t you think?

The medium size in taupe makes me feel very Grace Kelly. Sigh.
