3.1 PHILLIP LIM for TARGET: MY SHOPPING LIST


I am clearly infatuated by the bags!  These satchels are definitely something that the business savvy gal should have within her closet.  Although the satchels all have similarities, I've got my eye on all three listed to the left.  The Mini Satchel (First photo to the left) is considered priority. . . at the top of my list!  I'll say, if I can not get my hands on anything else, just having this mini would be so gratifying.
This PJ set is amazing. 
I actually have a pajama set smilar to this from Target (Not Phillip Lim, obviously).  Perfect for Arizona weather, keeping cool as a minimalist, I love floral + there is a dust bag included? WIN ;) There's just something about a dust bag that makes a purchase feel that much more 'worth it'.  There I go again, my obsession with detailed packaging.  I'm that girl that is purchasing the pieces simply because the packaging is nice. 

This is going to ba an amazing collection and I can not wait to get my hands on these pieces.  I don't believe I've ever anticipated the launch of a target collab as much as this one.

TIPS:
With many other Target/Designer collabs, you'll have to make sure you're one of the first in the store if you plan on getting your hands on the good stuff.  I remember making it into the store in the late evening on the day of a collection launch and was left with picked over pieces that were two sizes too large *WOMP WOMP WOMP* I've got it all planned out this time around.

Which pieces are you most excited for within this collection?

YARN TWISTS INSTALLATION + MY LOVE HATE RELATIONSHIP W/ THE STYLE


COLOR'S USED: Black Brown: Red Heart's Toast Yarn / Blonde: Red Heart's Wheat Yarn

It took about 7 hours total to finish my hair, the wrapping was a crazy tedious process, which I don't believe I'd be able to go through again any time soon.  The end product was completely amazing , nonetheless.  Being able to have some lengthy hair laying over my shoulder's felt good.  That is, until it was my run day. . . I've recently gotten into running regularly (which is completely amazing for me because I am far from being a runner) I am so proud of myself for it.  However, figuring out how to style my hair for my run was a pain, finally I got it to stay up in a ponytail.  The ponytail felt like it weighed at least 10lbs.  My poor neck, that was the hardest run ever and guess what. . . these little faux locs were out within 4 8hours later.  

I tell you, I am uber excited that I am finally getting into running and I will let nothing hold me back from it, not even that super fabulous hair style.  We may meet again in the future. . .

NOTE: 

  • When installing this style, keep in mind the weight of them.  Make sure you grab sections around your hair line that are large enough to hold the wrap.  This isn't the style to stress getting the braid exactly on your scalp, that will definitely cause you some discomfort.
  • Be sure to moisturize your natural hair really well. Use a moisturizer and lock it in with an oil.
