For a lot of us fashion enthusiasts, September 15 2013 was circled, starred and impatiently awaited. The Phillip Lim for Target collaboration was to be launched. So I got my tush to the store at 8am on a Sunday morning to get my hands on the most exciting pieces of clothing/accessories since the Garden of Eden ran out of leaves. 

Okay, maybe that’s too much. But I was very pumped. Lo and behold, I got my hands on a lot of goodies, which I’m sure everyone and their mother are going to be debuting out of their closets in the next few weeks.

But I was also pleasantly surprised with Target’s own collection, which had prices that even ran above Phillip Lim’s. They really seem to be stepping up their style game and I think they could soon be ranked right alongside the other fast fashion places we’re used to - H&M and the like.

It’s been a short summer. Not enough time to decompress and soak up the heat around me. So sooner than I expected, fall is around the corner. It’s quickly becoming my favorite time of the year. It’s a time to hit the refresh button and hope for better things ahead. 

Wearing a lace skirt that I bought around a year ago for the first time. Back then, I purchased it without trying it on, and sadly soon found out it didn’t fit me. I could barely get it past my knees. So it makes me pretty excited to see that all my blood, sweat (mostly sweat) and tears have been paying off. :)

Here’s to more new old stuff ahed! It’s almost fall, after all.
