The much anticipated Prabal Gurung for Target collection finally launched a little over a week ago and I was beyond excited! I saw the lookbook and fell in love with every look! The Target stores by me are closed on Sundays so the day this collection launched, I woke up at 7 am and tried to order items online. But the one item I just HAD to have - Dress 1 - was already sold out online, by 7 am!
I tried my luck at two different Target stores on Monday and finally got the dress! Anyways, between the stores and the site, I ended up getting these 9 items -
Now onto the items I actually liked. The coral & aqua dress isn't one I had originally planned on buying but I picked it up anyways and it was a pleasant surprise. I love how it fits but I had to get it in size 6. See what I mean when I say the fit was all cooky? I also love the skirt - although the print and color are very conservative, the silhouette is great! The lace-up pumps are also great! So, I'm going to keep those 3 items.
Overall, judging from the items I have tried, I think the collection is almost matronly and not very flattering or sexy. Everything was cut too big (except the white floral dress) and too long! In terms of fit, I feel lit the collection was not designed for real women. I was mostly disappointed about the white floral dress didn't work out because I had planned on wearing it for my birthday next month! :(
Did you guys buy anything from this collection? What did you think about it?
PS - See how I styled one of the pieces from the collection here!
