Foxy in 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target

Fox Print Sweater: Old Navy // Skirt and Crossbody Satchel Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target // Fur Vest: Material Girl via The Hudson Bay Company // Shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction // Necklace: Topshop // Bracelet: vintage

There are few things more mortifying for today's female than to suddenly spot another girl sporting the same clothing item that you are currently wearing. It gets even worse when the other person is about 10 years younger than you and clearly has her parents buy all of her clothes (in my defense, the last time that happened was in Vegas and it was an Urban Outfitters lace top, not some Hello Kitty tee). When I saw Jen Tam of "her waise choice" wearing this fox sweater in this post, I knew that I had to have that geeky fox for my own wardrobe. However, about 15 minutes after I had bought the darn thing, I saw another girl wearing it on the bus I was taking downtown. After scrambling to hide any telltale signs of my sweater that were sticking out of my Old Navy bag, I became deeply contemplative on the issue of how certain items just become too overplayed; which was very saddening since I adore the cute print of this sweater!
On another note, this is the first post in which I wore some of my 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target stash: this skater skirt and the crossbody satchel bag. While the quality of the materials certainly suffered in making Lim's pieces affordable, I did find that the simple yet elegant designs made up for any shortcomings. Also, while fall has strongly made its presence known over the last few days, skirts still remain favourite items in my sartorial vocabulary. As long as I cover up the rest of my body with warmer supplements, such as this faux fur vest, I'm good to go!

  2. Hahahhaaa, that is too funny about the sweater. I have yet to see any fox print apparel in Seattle, so you're still ahead of the trend in my eyes : ) It's so cute, especially with the fur vest. Love the Phillip Lim purse. Such a steal! It's the perfect size and shape and a great staple for fall and winter. I went to Target a few hours after the premiere and all the purses were already sold out! I'm so jealous you got a bag : )

  12. Ooh, I love this bag! I've been looking for a beautiful-quality black satchel for fall, and it sounds like the Philip Lim for Target collection may not be great quality, but I love the designs!
