Every Target designer collaboration in the last five years I’ve been pregnant or breastfeeding which doesn’t lend itself to scrambling for quick off the rack pieces in standard sizes. I also had an incident in a Target dressing room which left me skeptical of the quality of their clothing in general. I was trying on a pair of pleather pants (I know, that was mistake one) and as I pulled them up the waist band ripped clear off the pant legs. Not just a little tear; the waist band was in my hands and the legs were at my ankles.
Last week I was in Target shopping for superhero underwear (not for me) and I thought I’d browse by the 3.1 Philip Lim collection for Target. I love 3.1 Philip Lim and this grey sweater dress was my favourite from the Target look book. On a whim I tried it on because anything stretchy has the potential to fit a baby belly and may not be a complete disaster. The dress fit, it was cozy and sans baby in belly it will still make a cute oversized look. The quality seemed good for Target (Bonus: nothing ripped as I put it on) and at such a low price I figured why not?
By the way, the sales people laughed at me when I asked if there were any bags left from the collection.
Going into 31 weeks pregnant and Braxton Hicks has made a return visit. I’m measuring slightly above average so I could be looking at my biggest baby yet (That could mean many things, comfort not being one of them).
I’m loving that it’s Fall and I can embrace the season with gothy touches like my oxblood, Vixen nail polish by Revlon and deep purple lips.
