Lim leaves

In December I reported that the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection had cleared out of stores, but was still available online. Now almost one month later, I'm surprised it hung around for so long, but a quick check of their website today shows it's finally gone for good.

I ended up buying more from this designer-collab than I had expected, mainly because of the items I was able to score on sale. Of those items I originally bought at full price, I only kept the green blouse and the large black tote, as I'd used them already. But I had a change of heart on the brown tote and thus returned it, and got a price adjustment for the sparkle peplum top (as well as the floral print one) once they got marked down as they were still BNWT. I nabbed another bag marked down on clearance, as well as this Powerline Dress (shown) for the insane price of just $8.98. And online I got the ruffle tanks in both navy and cream for just $9.44 each.

Has anyone seen the Lim stuff show up at Goodwill yet? I'm sure it will. Meanwhile, the coveted mini-bags are still garnering insane markups on eBay, with this yellow one selling for $224!

I saw some of the bigger bags at Goodwill a month or two ago. They all had the messed up magnet on them though and were $25 so I passed. I have been carrying my yellow medium crossbody bag daily since I bought it the day of the debut and love it--it has held up super good and no problems with the magnet.

Of course I had to look at the $200+ bag on Ebay since I missed them in the store. They are pretty cool, but I think I'll ski[ them on ebay.
