Every good diet has a cheat day, right? That’s what I’m telling myself today, since I cheated on my “no shop February” by buying some Peter Pilotto for Target items! And just like a yummy pastry that you enjoy every bite of, this cheat was well worth every “calorie.”
Sending out a big thanks to my fabulous Instagram fashionistas who reminded me that today was the collection debut! I was there when Target opened at 8am and I certainly wasn’t alone.
I added myself to the line outside with about 25 other fashion addicts. Then it was the mad rush to the racks giggling and grabbing! We were women bonding on our shared mission …. “Anyone have a small in the cardigan?” “Anyone see the red sweatshirt?” “If you don’t buy that, can I have it?!”
It was a fun time!
Off to the dressing room with my picks and the lighting sure didn’t help my questionable photography skills.
(I’ll get better!)
This sweatshirt was cute, but not that flattering. (I guess what sweatshirt really is flattering though!)
This was one of the cardigans over a dress.
This dress was pretty, but too clingy and form-fitting for work. A lot of the dresses had a very junior-ish vibe, but there were a few good choices for the over 40 fashionista. And the separates had some great picks! Along with the clothing, the collection had bathing suits, tote bags, sunglasses, and sneakers. I’m not ready to try on bathing suits, but I did pick out some super fun sunnies!
And my favorite purchase ….
… a super soft t-shirt with a contrasting print on the sleeves. Here are some more pics I took at home, playing with my new purchases.
With a moto …
With my favorite red bag!
With my red coat.
Too rainy for outside shots, but I took one under the awning!
And one more!
So, was it worth the cheating? I did restrict myself to two items. The t-shirt was $19.99 and the sunnies $16.99 …. bargains! To me, it was well worth taking a day off from no shopping this month to be a part of this colorful Peter Pilotto celebration!
