3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

August 14th, 2013 | Purse Spotlight

Target is hoping that their new partnership with 3.1 Phillip Lim will pull them out of the collaboration rut. From the looks of the collection, their hopes are well-founded. The pieces that designer Phillip Lim has created for Target are really stunning-bags that look expensive but aren’t and clothes that are chic and wearable. These bags will reportedly retail for between $20 and $50 when the collection goes on sale at Target stores September 15. I’ll definitely be there. You can read more about the collection and see more photos at The Budget Babe.

Anthropologie Stockholm Handbags

June 25th, 2012 | Purse Spotlight

While browsing the sale section at Anthropologie, I came across the Stockholm Tote and Stockholm Shoulder Bag. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a bag that’s interesting and still versatile and I think either of these would fit that bill. The Stockholm Tote is $129, marked down from $248 and the Stockholm Shoulder Bag is $149, marked down from $278.
