A minute before doors opened, I got out of my car and claimed my spot as #8 in line. We respectfully walked toward the collection like non-crazy, normal people and began making our selections. I was delighted to find that a couple bags in each color and size were available. I snatched up both gold versions and tried to decide which I was going with. I ended up choosing the mini satchel. Here's what else I brought into the fitting room:
Silky Skirt -Animal Print $29.99, size 14
This was adorable. I didn't expect to like this skirt as much as I did. It was way too short for work, and the zipper stuck a little; but if I had a place to wear this, I would've absolutely bought it. As you can see, the silky material has some wrinkle potential, but if that doesn't bug you, it's a very fun skirt that I thought was pretty true to size.
Long-Sleeve Blouse -Floral Print $29.99, size large
Since this was one of the items on my wishlist, I had high hopes for this shirt. The print may be a bit much, but the silky material felt like it was high quality. There was a stray thread sticking out on the shoulder, but nothing a scissors can't fix. I liked the longer length so that I could leave it untucked over skinny pants or tucked into a skirt. Although I hesitated at the bold print, this one went home with me.
Sparkle Sweater -Navy $39.99, size large
This sweater was so ridiculously soft and comfortable. The rhinestone detail at the neck was also a cute detail that makes this not just another sweater. And it looks adorable with the printed skirt. The shape was not flattering on me, but if you're in the market for something like this, I highly recommend it.
Ruffle Tank -Navy $26.99, size large
Originally, this top wasn't on my radar, but the more I saw it on people, the more I realized how versatile it would be in my own closet. Perfect for work. It's also a nice, silky material like the floral shirt and feels high quality despite a stray thread. This one ended up coming home with me, too.
French Terry Sweatshirt -Boom Print $29.99, size large
I kind of expected this sweatshirt to me as comfortable as the Prabal Gurung for Target + Neiman Marcus one was, but this one definitely did not live up to the Prabal Gurung one. Cool design, but not for me.
Sparkle Dress -Black $49.99, size large
This dress looked très horrible on me, but I wanted to try it on just so that I could review it. The straight silhouette is more appropriate for basically anyone but pear shapes. But hey, the dress has pockets, so that's a nice perk.
Shirt Dress -Floral Print $39.99, size large
Finally, the shirt dress, which was also on my radar. Pros - I liked the more fitted waist. I was expecting it to be a straighter style, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was more shape to it. It also has a zipper instead of buttons, which is kind of cool. My problem with shirt dresses is button gape, which I wouldn't have to worry about with a zipper. Cons - Once I got it unzipped, I had a hard time getting it zipped back up. Also, the hemline was kind of weird to me - weird in a way that made the sides stick out off my hips in an unflattering way. The material is substantial and very nice quality, though. Even still, I passed on this one.
Other items that were in the store but I did not grab were:
- Green long-sleeve blouse, which looked gorgeous
- Navy silky skirt
- Black sparkle peplum top
- White ruffle tank
- Navy and green pullover
- Gray sweater dress
- Blue sparkle dress
- Gray sweatpants
- Both of the scarves, which also looked nice
So, what did you guys think of the collection? Did you get everything you were hoping to get?
