Confessions of a Shopaholic

       1 // 2 // 3 // 4
I guess I'll start this post with a little story. My original intent was for this posting to be about my gorgeous new Phillip Lim for Target bag. That was until Friday night. Cue sad music, as you can see there is no photo of my gorgeous Phillip Lim for Target bag. I'll save you a long story and give you the basics. As most of you know those bags FLEW out of the shelves. I was fortunate enough on Friday to see online that the bag I wanted was indeed in stock at the Target not too far from here. I excitedly called, had the girl check using the product number, & asked her to hold the bag which she said was not a problem and took my name down. Then here's where you'll start shaking your head at me. That Target which is about 5 miles away mind you, is easily accessible by car...which since I live in the city I don't have anymore (you're welcome baby brother). So the crazed fashion addict I am decided to spend an hour on public transportation to get to Target. Hello, my name is Faith and I am a shopaholic. Long story short I excitedly arrive at said Target to purchase my coveted bag only to find it's not there. That lovely employee from that morning never actually took the bag off the floor and put it on hold. Leaving it vulnerable and alone on the floor for someone else to buy and take home. We (meaning me and the two employees I dragged into my game of search Target for the Phillip Lim bag) eventually found the employee's note where she wrote down the SKU, didn't write down my name, and therefore ultimately left my bag available for someone else. It was a sad night at Target.

Anyways, I know life isn't all about bags and shoes. My disappointing Target trip at least gave me a little reality check...if my biggest issue is not getting the Phillip Lim bag I want; then I've got it pretty dang good.

Ironically though...today's "back up post" is sharing a few items (bags and shoes) on my New York wish list (see shopaholic). I can't wait to be back in the city so soon & I find that shopping there (even though DC has the same stores) seems to be so much more exciting. I won't be buying ALL the things on my list of course, but I will be keeping an eye out for these fun pieces.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I'm sorry that you didn't get that bag---trust me, I've done this before all too often, stalking the items that I want. Sometimes, I need a check and to realize that I don't actually need the items that I'm seeking.

    1. I've been thinking about the pink as well, but the red is little different than my other makeup! Glad to hear you love it!
