Phillip Lim For Target Superhero Day & Night Outfits


First of all, let me tell you the story of how my Sunday morning went down.  Of course, we all knew that the Phillip Lim for Target collection was about to debut.  Just like any Target collection, there is no set time for release of online products but regardless, many people stay up until the wee hours of the morning waiting for the release.  Well, 12AM CST rolls around and I’m sitting on Twitter following the #PhillipLimForTarget and OMG, people are tweeting out links!  These are links to items from the Phillip Lim collection on the Target website, I go to Target’s website and do my own search and can’t find a single product except the Preview Collection page.  I have no idea how people were finding these “magical links” but I was so grateful for it.  One by one, the navy tuxedo jacket, the floral blouse, the Boom sweatshirt, the leopard items, men’s collection were being released.  BUT… WHERE WAS THE BOOM SWEATSHIRT AND THE BAGS?  It was nearly 1AM and my eyes had a hard time staying open.  1:30AM rolls around, nothing happens.  A couple of my Twitter friends and I said, what the heck, let’s stay up til 2AM and see if anything is released.  2AM rolls around and nothing happens so I decide to call it a night since I knew I’d be braving the stores in the morning.

To make a long story short, I wake up at 7AM, look at my phone and realize that the Boom sweater and bags were released pretty much 10-15 minutes after I went to sleep. *slaps hand to forehead*  If I had only just stayed up a little bit longer, then I wouldn’t have had to wake up to brave the store, but to the store I must go.  So I get ready and dressed and head to my nearest Target store at 7:30AM.  When I arrived, there was no one there, except when I parked, a girl got out of her car and headed to the door to stand in line so I followed her.  She turned out to be on a US trip from Denmark and she had to get her hands on the bags.  Apparently no one else in my local area knows about fashion, except the next girl that showed up at 7:55AM, 5 minutes before store opening.  8AM rolls around, Target doors open and the 3 of us walk straight to the Phillip Lim collection and grab everything we want (and then some).  I had NO intention of reselling any items, but I merely couldn’t decide what I wanted so figured I get them all and return them later.  I spent a lot of money, let’s just say, but most of it IS going back.  However what you in this post are some items that I’m excited about keeping, the coveted Boom sweatshirt, small yellow mini satchel and the big black tote.

So here we have 2 looks w/ the Boom sweatshirt, a Day and Night look!


For this day look, I went super casual with some track pants (these are SOO comfy), red heels, and the bigger tote.  I’m thinking of using this tote as my new laptop bag for work!






Day Outfit Details:

Sweatshirt: Target
Pants: H&M
Bag: Target
Shoes: Corso Como

And for the Night / going out look, I decided to go a little edgier with this outfit.



Paired with some quilted leather shorts and my fave Zara tribal pumps, the mini yellow satchel is a nice pop of color.






Night Outfit Details:

Sweatshirt: Target
Shorts: Forever 21
Bag: Target
Shoes: Zara
Necklace: J.Crew

All in all, I’m happy with the quality of the bags for the price, I like how the Boom sweatshirt fits (I got a larger size b/c I like my sweatshirts looser) and I still have a few things coming in the mail later this week.  πŸ™‚

A couple of you have recently asked me what I do to edit my photos and create collages and I just wanted to share with you this new free online photo editing program called Fotor.  You can basically easily upload your pictures to the site (you can upload multiple at once) and go through and apply basic edits on them (like crop, rotate, contrast, color, etc). as well as add photo effects, add text, add little picture icons and more!  I also love creating photo collages like for the first picture where I wanted to show off a Day and Night look side by side.  See some examples and screenshots below:



I really like this feature where you can see the Before and After photos as well, it really helps when editing photos to be able to see the differences you are making in the photo.

Oh and one more thing, the winner of the Deerie Handmade giveaway is Emily S.  Congrats girl!  I sent you an email!

    I got up too late during the day to get anything, but I did go to target. They had a couple of clothing items. I’m not big on the clothes, but I wished my local store carried the bags!

  2. September 17, 2013 / 10:36 pm

    I love your photos they are so inspiring! Also fun outfit with really awesome shoes. πŸ™‚

    I styled up till midnight as well and never thought about checking my twitter account. I ordered a few items online the next morning but didn’t get my hands on the large tote in taupe that I wanted. Glad you were able to get everything that you needed!

    Love the bright colors in your top and great way to accent with those beautiful shoes.

  13. September 18, 2013 / 9:39 am

    At least you were smart enough to look online the night before! I woke up early to go to the store! I got four things and am still kicking myself for not getting a bag. That’s what I get for showing restraint! This sweatshirt is super cute on you!

    So glad you bought all those items and I could take one of the mini satchels off your hands πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to get my boom sweatshirt! It’s been COLD in NYC.

    Dang, that is some serious dedication to get the items you wanted! Haha, the only thing I wanted was the yellow crossbody and it was sold out when I went in :(. Maybe I should have been more dedicated like you! I’ll lust after it from afar now πŸ˜‰

  17. September 18, 2013 / 11:39 am

    Omg that boom sweater is adorable. Love the way you styled both looks Sandy! xx Kat

    Great way to wear one sweater. I only got Navy Silky skirt from Phillip Lim collection.

  19. September 18, 2013 / 1:07 pm

    Great looks! I think that sweatshirt is the best piece from that line! It is amazing to me that you are basically wearing a sweatsuit but you look so chic- great job! Also, thanks for the tip on the photo editing site- I’ve been looking for a good one!


  20. September 18, 2013 / 1:14 pm

  22. September 18, 2013 / 1:56 pm

    I never even saw the Boom sweatshirt til now! It’s literally the only thing I’ve liked from a Target collab this whole year. BIG DEAL.

    Unfortunately i had to work and my friend said that by the time she got into the store (she stood in line) they were all sold out of the purses, which sucks because that’s all I wanted. Too bad because I really wanted a purse. Love your outfit and that purse is fabulous.

    Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow and link up for my weekly Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up.

    I didn’t get my hands on any of the items from this collab. I’m semi hoping that people will return things and I can just pick them up at the store later on. I LOVE that yellow satchel. I think it’s my fave from the collection.

    So cute and fun Sandy! Love the looks, and SO smart to grab it all and return later. I didn’t even try to get my hands on anything– I knew our ONE Target close enough to Boston was going to be a miserable sight. But happy for everyone else who picked up such fun goodies!

  26. September 18, 2013 / 4:15 pm

    I totally shopped using the Twitter links! My first purchase was at 8:59 pm PST and my last one at 1:14 am PST. Items have sold out so quickly in the past, so I made individual purchases to get each item I wanted as soon as the links were working. Love the red lips and the chic day and night outfits! You look so pretty! I reviewed the men’s and women’s pieces that my store had for my blog, and I can’t wait until all my orders arrive! Enjoy!


  27. September 18, 2013 / 5:45 pm

    Ah you braved the crowds and got to Target! Lucky girl. You look in you new found finds!

    I love the sweatshirt. So fun!


  31. September 25, 2013 / 5:58 pm

    Want Want want. Want it all! I usually hate sweatshirts but this one is really designed like a traditional one is it? I never thought to style it like you did the Night look, but I love it! Thanks as always for linking up to the Verizon Voices Fashioista Style hop last week.
