Beer & Bags


Another weekend in the books! While mine started with some afternoon beer at work, that was the height of the excitement. I didn't feel that great so I kept it casual and stayed in Saturday night. The benefit of staying in was that when the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection went live at about 2am PST I was able to snag a few bags. I was prepared to line up at Target Sunday morning but thank goodness I didn't have to!






The bags that we selected were the ones we wanted which makes me super happy. They were both online only (currently sold out) and different from the black and taupe bags that it seems everyone else picked up. I actually didn't realize not all of the purses would be available in-store. Good thing I didn't wake up early to sit outside my local Target for nothing! The only negative about ordering online is having to wait for the shipment. And of course I go on vacation this weekend so my bag will probably show up then with my luck.

Did you pick up anything from the collection? If so, who braved the store? I wanna hear about the experience!

I love both bags! I got a bag from Target but it was in-store. Shopping online is so much easier! Good score!

I got it online too! I got it in taupe, a smaller one than your purple one. Perfect neutral bag (since all my others are pink!)

Ooh, I loooove the purple!

Amanda @ A Good Hue said...

Nice! I totally spaced it this collection was launching yesterday-- I'm working from home today so I'm going to take a break and see if there are any left at the stores around here.

Nikki Mitchell said...

I am dying to get one of those bags. Hopefully when I go in the store today they are still there!

Love the purse you ordered! Unfortunately, I'm unemployed at the moment and am on a 'no buying any clothes' ban until I get one. But if I could, I definitely was lusting after his "Boom" sweatshirt. I've applying for jobs like a madwoman, so hopefully something comes through soon because I really want to buy some new clothes lol. Cross your fingers for me!

So jealous! I slept in & missed out on the bags in store. When I went online, they were all sold out :( wahhhh!

Filiz @ Light and Sweet said...

I snagged the taupe colored one! I really like it but not sure about the cross body strap. Anyone else feel the same way?

Cute bags! I wanted one, but only the tiny ones were left at my Target. I didn't go to until 10:00, so maybe they were all snatched up already. I really love the purple one you got.
