3.1 Phillip Lim x Target Launches this Sunday + 5 Tips to Shop Online!!

As many Fashionistas have already heard, the designer collaboration of 3.1 Phillip Lim with Target is almost here!! The online shopping launch (which will also include online exclusives) is rumored to commence sometime after midnight on Saturday night. On Target's Facebook page they actually responded to a customer asking what time the collection would launch online and Target responded "be sure to check back in the wee hours of the night"..umm..that's not a good sign. I'll still be glued to the computer for most of the night starting at 9pm since some of the previous designer collabs did launch online early..although I'm not getting the same feeling for this massive collection, but I don't want to take any chances. I will be posting to my Facebook page as soon as it becomes available to shop online.

While I really want every handbag in the collection, but if I am able to purchase even one of the highly coveted bags I will be a happy shopper! The mini satchels are at the top of my list and the pretty floral blouse too, thanks to blogger buddy Franci at The Fashion Palate for reminding me about the ballerina style sweater (almost identical to one Target is selling by Xhilaration from my post this week).

What's on your wish list?
5 tips to shopping the collection online:
+ Make a "must have" list of what you really cannot live without..hey, this is serious business!

+ Purchase the Handbags FIRST! The bags will be the first to sell out.

+ Place your order! Do.not.wait. *Remember Target has free shipping with any $50 or more purchase and free shipping on any order if you are a Target cardmember.

+ Order two sizes of your favorite item if you are unsure. Target returns are super easy, just return the size you don't want to any store and remember to bring your packing slip and the bag it comes in.

+ Place multiple orders. If you have a list of quite a few items, order your favorites first, then go back to browse the rest of collection stress-free.

 The Collection is shown with ideas of when to wear each item.

 Preview the Target Collection here on their page.
