small town spoils – bagging a 3.1 phillip lim for target bag

IMG_1757

When Target announced the launch date of the 3.1 Phillip Lim collaboration, I circled it in red in my brain calendar; I’ve been on a hunt for a great taupe carryall for fall and the satchels in the collection fit the bill (and my budget). Squeeze in a trip to Tar-jhay on Sunday, I told myself.

Then Sunday came and went in a blink, as Sundays do best.

I made a quick pitstop this morning between errands and deliveries. Lucky for me, there were plenty of bags left — one of the perks of living in a town that’s “big enough” for the stores to stock a decent selection, but “small enough” that most people neither know nor care that that these babies are selling like hotcakes all over the country. 

For a hot second, I thought about running back in the store and buying them all up to list on eBay. Then I thought, “who the heck do you think you are?” and went back to work.

With a fabulous new bag…

And maybe a wallet and cross-body. ;-)

If too much denim is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

The Canadian tuxedo is a polarizer; folks either loathe denim-on-denim with a deep fiery passion, or pair up their blue jean favorites at least once a week. A chambray top with comfy skinnies is a win in my book.

Britney and Justin ruined it for all of us back in 2001.

1992 called, and it wants its pony back! This was my mom’s go-to hairstyle for me in elementary school, followed closely by the french braid. Of the two, this is the only one I can recreate on my own as a grown-up. Somehow my french braid always comes out crooked and weirdly… inside-out?

Check out Gal Meets Glam’s twisted ponytail post for simple instructions to recreate the throw-back yourself; no informercial “fashion hair tools” required.
