I couldn’t be more excited to announce this blogger collaboration I did with Nichole of the fashion blog, A Type of Style, who also just happens to be one of my best friends. Nichole and I have this problem where we have the EXACT same taste in clothing. No kidding. We excitedly texted each other when the Phillip Lim for Target collection hit stores to tell each other what we had gotten and not surprisingly we had picked out the same items. Sigh, we’re fashion soul mates. Even though we pick the same clothes, we don’t always style them the same way, so we decided to show you our perspective on the BOOM! sweatshirt. Hopefully this shows you that every piece in your closet can have great range depending on what you pair with it. Enjoy! (Also, look for more of these collabs in the future!)

AND BOOM GOES THE (3.1 Philip Lim for Target) DYNAMITE!

ImageWatch this first, then proceed to read.

“Paint me like one of your girls, Mr. Roy Lichtenstein” I whispered when I checked myself out in the mirror. This outfit makes me feel like a mix of a Roy Lichtenstein painting, a Piet Mondrian painting, a tertiary color wheel, and a comic book. For my look, I chose to pair BOOM! sweatshirt with an Express quilted leather skirtblue pumps, and a red clutch.

I love the playfulness Lim had with his Target collection. He ain’t scared of shit!


For Nichole’s look, she paired the BOOM! sweatshirt with some faux leather leggingsspike flats, her new House of Harlow earrings (gifted from the genius herself for Nichole’s birthday a few days ago! [Happy Birthday, Nichole!]) and her 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel.



Who can design a collection with a plethora of patterns, a shit load of color and still make it cohesive? Mara fuckin’ Hoffman.

How you can you not feel happy just looking at these pieces? Imagine wearing them! They are fun, vibrant, and just full of energy! Before the show, Hoffman said, “This collection is about straight-up happiness. I know that sounds hippie-dippie, but it’s real.”

I’m totes down with the realness, Mara, totes down.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

3.1 Philip Lim in da (Target) hizzouse!

How insane do I look? And by insane, I mean insanely good! I know I need to work on my model poses, but this cross-legged/awkward smile will have to do until I take some classes.

Sunday didn’t work for me, so Lim was going to have to wait for me until Monday. I prepared for my trip to Target with 2 Uzi guns, a bulletproof jacket, and 1 venti iced vanilla latte (light ice). To my dismay, the racks were filled with an absurd amount of clothing, including the pieces I wanted. Except the purses. Not 1 purse remained. Apparently all of the naked purse ladies attacked the purse shelf and left without any articles of clothing. Nuts. Just nuts.
