Mulberry For Target?

Here we are, Monday morning, back at work, and once again wondering where the weekend went. It was not the weekend I expected, and don't worry, I will spare you the details from our misadventures in the North Georgia mountains - but we managed to make the best of it.

Despite a few hiccups here and there, we got to relax, lay around in comfy clothes, watching football, eat too much food, drink one too many Blue Moons, and simply enjoy the feeling of not having anywhere to be for 2 days. I do wish it had been colder - high 70s up in the mountains is just not the same. 

Yesterday was the lunch of  the "Mulberry for Target" collection - and of course, I had to check it out. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but it was definitely more than what I saw.

So, as a heads up - if you were expecting something like this: 



You might as well start saving up because this is what you will get:



HMMM - First of all, I do not like that it says "Mulberry for Target" on the traditional little buckle - I feel like it cheapens the actual bag. I am not a fan of the heart shaped tag - I feel like it makes the purses look too "teenagers" oriented. I think it's a neat idea, and I love the concept - I just wish they hadn't made them so casual looking.

A little disappointed - yes. However, this reinforces the fact that if you truly want something nice, you will have to pay the price. I am still on the search for the perfect black winter purse - and so far, I have nothing. 

I keep telling myself that I am going to France in a month, and it will also be my birthday - so I might just wait till then :) 

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT WEEKEND - HAPPY MONDAY!!!

  1. I was disappointed too! The heart tags are just awful. Better start saving now. You should check out TJ Maxx. They always have super nice Michael Kors black bags.

  4. I know! Sad I mean people will be like 'Oh it's a Mulberry!' Then it says 'For Target' and then you'll see the look on their faces :(

  5. I was so excited for Mulberry for Target. But the collection seems a lot more Betsey Johnson. Whom I absolutely LOVE. But would rather buy her stuff. Just found your blog and love it! I am a new follower.

  11. I love all of Target's guest designer's but I agree - it does cheapen it a little.

  12. Such a shame. One collab I was disappointed with was Tucker. I scored a dress and for synthetic "silk" material, it is surprisingly soft!
