If you’re into the designer collaborations that Target does, then you probably knew about the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target line that came out September 15, 2013. I was one of the women that stayed up all night to get what I could online and then I went straight to my nearest Target store and waited outside until the doors opened. I haven’t been to sleep in over 24 hours but I can tell you that I had a blast! As soon as it hit 8 AM and a Target employee opened the door, a crowd ran into the store grabbing whatever they could. The handbags were the hottest item and they were all gone within 10 minutes. I managed to order 9 handbags in the wee hours of the morning online but there was only one bag I really wanted out of the whole collection and that’s the “Mini” Satchel with Gusset. Considering I’m a woman that is a huge Louis Vuitton fan, I actually love this bag.
Even though it’s faux leather, the bag is gorgeous. To be in fact it was one of the most popular handbags from the line and when I was at the store that was the bag that everyone kept asking for. The quality really isn’t as bad as some people had originally thought and it’s structured quite well. I love the whole style and shape of the bag. It maybe super tiny, which isn’t always much practical, but it sure is an adorable bag to give your expensive designer handbags a break sometimes. I just got the bag today and I’m already using it tomorrow.
In total, I got four bags from the Phillip Lim for Target line but this one instantly stole my heart. It has a zip closure, can be expanded and closed on the sides and I love the magnetic closure on the front of the bag. It’s a super cool bag and I’m happy I was able to get my hands on one. I know some fashion lovers thought the line “looked cheap” but I disagree. It’s OK to have some expensive and affordable fashion pieces because it’s all in the way you dress and present yourself.
I highly suggest you check out your nearest Target to see if any handbags are left from the collection. They are super reasonable and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
You can check here to see if a Target store near you still has any of the handbags let. The bag retailed for $35. What a steal!
Did you miss out on the event? There are tons of people reselling their TARGET x PHILLIP LIM goodies on eBay.
