THIS is how I do designer shopping.
Sunday, Feb. 10
7:00 a.m.: Wake up.
7:45 a.m.: Pull in to Target parking lot
8:00 a.m.: FIRST one through the doors
8:20 a.m.: After snatching up my size in every item of the collection, I’m on to the fitting rooms. (I can tell the attendant hates me, I have about 21 things in my cart)
8:40 a.m.: My amazing boyfriend holds my coffee while I try on each shoe in the collection
8:50 a.m.: Call my mama—who is also currently shopping the collection at a Target in Orlando—to make sure we both got all the pieces we wanted. We often divide and conquer in situations like this.
The Prabal Gurung collection for Target sold out almost completely in one day—like I imagined it would. I learned my lesson with the Missoni collection in 2011 that crashed Target’s website. So, I took necessary precautions to ensure I’d get first pickins.
The Prabal Gurung “Love” collection was bright, colorful and feminine; flipping through the pieces got me so excited for spring! The collection’s full of gorgeous details, but the most appealing detail–the price tag. I love that Target brings such fabulous designers and their creations to us “regular people” at realistic prices.
Here are the pieces that managed to make their way into my closet:
Sweatshirt in “First Date” print — $29.99
Tee-shirt with sheer shoulders — $19.99
Lace-up pumps in black — $39.99
Peplum tin “Floral Crush” Print — $29.99
