So anyone who knows me well, knows I love Victoria Beckham. So…of course when I found out that she was creating a line for Target, I created a list of favorites. However, I didn’t hold out much hope for getting anything based on the Missoni and Lily Pulitzer debacles. For Lily Pulitzer they were actually kicking things out of my cart as I’d load them. So if you’re thinking I woke up at 2 a.m. to order stuff, you’re wrong. NOTHING at this stage in my life is more important than bedtime sleep. I get up for kids who are sick or have nightmares only. Ha! However, I was pleasantly surprised when I was eating my cereal Sunday morning before church that they had things still available. I quickly ordered my top four items: the shirt you see me wearing above, and these three dresses:
You can see them better here:
And then I headed out to Target after church and lunch and picked up a pair of pants, my Mom also grabbed a pair, and I got a sweater:
So after getting all of our loot, and trying everything on, here’s my “in my opinion” analysis:
Dresses: All winners. I can easily wear the two black ones to work, and the floral is a great Spring dress for outings. Lovely fit, especially the ruffle knit.
I’m planning to pair the dresses with a low wedge, a flat, or a heel.
Pants: Weird fit, both my Mom and I are returning them. They were too large in the waist but tight in the thighs, and almost too high waisted.
Sweater: So cute and fun for Spring, and so incredibly soft. Yes, it’s a girl’s shirt, I got an extra large.
Shirt: Obviously I love it, since I’m wearing it, ha!
And finally I couldn’t help picking up this:
A paper doll book! This is for myself, I loved paper dolls when I was a little girl. My plan is to actually take the pieces apart and put it in a matted frame in my office at work. I’ll be sure to share when it’s completed! You can find all the pieces in the collection here.
