Floral Fresh

2.17.2013


Prabal Gurung for Target floral blouse, BCBG Girls skirt, Luella distressed leather jacket (similar here), Susan Farber bow clutch (similar here), Cat-eye sunglasses c/o BCBG Max Azria, Hue tights, ASOS platform heels.


Last Sunday, Lauren and I -- along with a few of our friends -- woke up at 6am, rented a Zipcar and drove to Target in Queens to scoop up as many Prabal for Target items as we could get our hands on. This was in addition to placing several online orders as a few of the shoes were exclusively online-only. I will be honest with you, I bought five pairs. I know that seems like a lot, and my mother who is reading this is definitely shaking her head. Her last piece of advice was to sell a pair of shoes for every new pair that I buy, but for some reason I find that to be a really hard thing to do. Luckily, the genius of shopping at Target is that I was able to buy five pairs for shoes for under $200.

Sadly, the quality of the majority of the clothing collection wasn't great. Lauren and I both got our hands on the two standout pieces, the tank shown above and in my case a seriously badass sweatshirt with the same jungle print. The shoes were much better quality and only adds to the justification of my insane online order.

Did anyone else manage to get their hands on the Prabal for Target collection? What did you think about the quality?

  1. I don't know this brand, but I like this look. It has something "messy", but it looks really stylish!
    My husband goes crazy every time I buy new shoes, because we haven't got the place for them anymore :D But I just CAN'T sell the old shoes...they are like my beloved babies haha :D ok, that's over-the-top, but it feels like that ;)

  9. I didn't pick anything up for that reason...the quality with the past Target/designer collabs just didn't seem worth it. Glad your shoes were a much better score! Are they true to size?

    1. Yep, they're pretty true to size! If anything you could even go one half size smaller, but it depends on how you like your fit! Good luck! x

  11. Wow! Love how you took the feminine floral blouse from this very girly collection and styled it in such an edgy way! Now I am rethinking the blouse...haha :) I agree with you on the soso quality of the clothes but the much better quality of the shoes (probably why I snagged 3 pairs of shoes and no clothing items). Loving your layered skirt too!

  15. No Target in Scandinavia :( But I do go there to browse and shop when I´m in the US. I love this outfit, the floral shirt balances the edginess of the leather jacket (fab jacket!) and I´m a big fan of the opaque tights. I guess living in a colder country makes this a necessity rather than vanity!
