Fall Essentials :: Layering with Faux Fur and Phillip Lim

Blouse :: Phillip Lim for Target (here)
  Faux Fur Vest:: H&M (similar here)
Jeans :: Mossimo Target (here) (Splurge pair here)
Shoes :: Aldo (similar here)
Bag :: Phillip Lim for Target yellow top handle bag (Sold Out) (Splurge here)
Necklace :: H&M (Splurge here)

Now that the cold weather is here it is time to bring out those layering pieces. Autumn is by far my favorite season and it brings out the best in fashion layering. As long as you have the right pieces and accessories, layering is not only comfortable it is chic as well. First pick out your favorite faux fur vest, add some patterns such as a floral blouse or polka dots or both in my case to complete your ensemble. Add some accessories such as jewelry, knitted hats or scarves to give your layering some depth then finish off with leggings/ripped jeans and you're ready to brave the brisk air. Here I added a gold tassel necklace and silver ring from Modern Design to complete my look, have fun and Happy Fall ladies!

Out on a Lim :: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Part 1


Shorts :: H&M (similar here)
  Top :: Phillip Lim for Target (here)
Heels :: Zara Spat Heel (similar here)
Bag :: Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel with gusset (similar here)

I have to admit, I did not wake up at 6am to line up for the Phillip Lim collaboration with Target. It wasn't that I didn't want to, I just forgot...

In any case, after realizing my mistake a week later I began my search for the coveted bags. My hard work paid off. I was able to get my hands on a few of the bags from the collection. Most notably is the mini satchel with gusset as seen here. This particular bag resembles Phillip Lim's pashli mini satchel the most which costs about $650. Our mini gusset on the other hand was only $35!
The quality of the mini gusset was surprisingly really nice for a Target product. It's sturdy with all functioning hardware and most importantly it comes with a detachable shoulder strap which makes it versatile as well, always a plus!

Did you ladies snag anything during this collaboration?
