I am one of those fools who paid the $800 odd dollars for a Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel bag. In my defense, its one of my favorite bags and I have worn it more times than I can remember, which means that the bag already paid for itself (?) -This is how I justify expensive purchases to my brain-.
I have never been exposed to one of those “designer collaborations” for Target as I don’t live in the US, I am more of a …. for H&M kind of girl, but this collaboration got my attention… So Phillip Lim, aka one of my favorite designers is doing a collaboration for TARGET and of course, all of us outside of the US get to stare from the distance. What got my attention the most is how similar the bags are to “the real deal” and most of all, that the ones for his target collection will go for around $35.00 dollars (?!?!?!?!?!). Ok, the quality might vary a lot, who knows, they seem pretty good on the images if I should say so myself, now the only question is; Would you still save for the real -and $895- deal, or does the Phillip Lim for Target do the trick?
If you live in the US, lucky, lucky you…
