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


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. ;-)

  1. I LOVE that bag!! I’m such a bag whore and I’m thinking of running to Target at Posner Park…right…NOW!!!

    1. They still had several styles left yesterday, Angie! You can check the website to see what’s still available in-store, but I think you’d be safe just taking a trip and seeing what’s there. I also bought the top handle crossbody in black.

  2. You know, I hadn’t really paid much attention to this recent collaboration, but gosh I wish I had because that bag is really perfect!

    1. To be honest, I usually don’t pay much attention to the designer collaborations myself. But the bags in this collection were definitely worth the trip!

    1. Thank you! I’m looking for some fall/winter hats for the upcoming season. I’d never been much of a hat person, but for the last 6 months or so I feel like I wear one every day!

What do you think?
