This definitely was one of the most anticipated collections….
Phillip Lim for Target!
The official launch was today, September 15th. Stores opened at 8am and Target left everyone up in the air about the actual time the collection would be released online. I followed #PhillipLimforTarget on Twitter starting at 11pm and it was the best decision ever! Pieces slowly started to become live even though the website home page was not showing it but these people provided links so you could instantly access the merchandise. I was able to add a few things to my cart and leave them there until the purses, which was the 1 item I absolutely needed were available. The taupe Mini Satchel was the first purse released and I instantly added it to a few other items I had stored in my cart and checked out. Since Target offers free shipping with a $50 purchase I figured just to check out and go back and place another order if and when the other items I wanted were released. At 4am the full collection was LIVE! Some people literally stared at their screens and refreshed their computers for hours but luckily… I was able to get some sleep and set alarms to get up and check every so often. It paid off since I was able to purchase everything on my wish list.
Here is what I got:
Here is a look at some of the other pieces in this collection:
Were you able to pick up some things from this collection?? If so – what was on your wish list?

All the bags have sold out but there are still some cute things available.
looks pretty cool. I like some of the items.
Makes me wish we had Target in Ireland- some great pieces! Celine-esque handbags are gorgeous ♡
Check ebay – they have a lot of pieces and even though the prices will be higher, some of them are reasonably priced. I absolutely love the mini satchels because of how Celine-esque they are. I love the Celine but there’s NO way I’m paying 3K for a purse.
Great idea, will definitely check out ebay! As gorgeous as Celine handbags are, they’re not quite worth taking out a car loan for 🙂
I’m so happy to see this post. I’ve been wondering what the items would be like! I adore your choices! Also, I hope you will post some photos of yourself using/wearing them so we can see the finished product modeled 🙂
I absolutely will! Since I ordered online, I’m excited for them to come in so I can see what they look like in person
I went in-store for this (8:05 and I snagged the last mini satchel, LOL) and I can say that the quality was pretty impressive! You know, for the price point.
I’ll have a post up tomorrow AM bright and early, but I bought the same mini as you – in taupe – and the floral print peplum top (insanely flattering, with a VERY cool closure!)
I *really* wanted the cami & tap pant set, but that wasn’t even on the floor at my Target. Will wait to see if those and the $19 tanks go on sale; those were the two lower price items I really wanted.
I just saw your post and I’m even more excited for it to come in now! I also wished it was slightly larger but the other bags were def. too large to be my day to day bag. The color is pretty awesome too.
