Like many of you already know, the Altuzarra x Target collaboration launched this past Sunday and let me tell you, my girlfriends and I were waaay more than prepared! Like 2 hours before Target opened kinda prepared. Ok, I’ll admit going that early probably wasn’t necessary seeing as only 3 other people showed up, but hindsight is always 20/20! I ended up getting the 4 pieces I wanted so in the end the 6am wake up call was definitely worth it.
I always love a good Target collaboration because you get a taste of having a “designer” piece for a fraction of the cost. Overall, the Altuzarra collection wasn’t exactly my style as there was a lot of boho inspired pieces. However, you know I couldn’t have left empty handed. I mean it’s Altuzarra!
I needed some new boots for the fall and the over the knee heeled boots were pretty much everything. Along with the heeled lace up booties, I knew I wasn’t going home without either of those pairs. I was also a HUGE fan of the cranberry velvet suit. I was a little skeptical of the quality of the collection, as sometimes the material can be a little cheap. But the items I picked up seemed well made and were definitely worth it.
I was so excited to have picked up the velvet suit that I couldn’t wait to wear it. And I literally couldn’t wait as I didn’t even have the piece for 24 hours before I was wearing it to an event that very same evening. Looks like it was meant to be!
The event we went to was hosted by Canadian department store, Simons. If you haven’t heard of it, they house everything from house ware to designer duds. It’s like the Nordstroms of the great white north! With champagne, horderves, and fabulous clothes; Simons invited some of #yegs finest to celebrate fall fashion for 2014. So fun!
Did you guys snag any Altuzarra goods on Sunday? I’d love to know what you picked out!
