Yep, that’s right, Mossimo. At Target. I was walking through yesterday, on my way to the Benedryl (for the dog) and peanut butter M&Ms (for ME) and got stuck in the women’s clothing section (which happens a lot). Noticing quite a few things for fall that caught my eye, I took a handful into the dressing room:
From left to right, I’m wearing:
Mossimo women’s v-neck drapey tee | $14.99 + Mossimo leggings
Mossimo printed tunic top | $24.99 + Mossimo leggings
Mossimo twig print sweatshirt | $24.99 + my own pants (Herff Christiansen, not available anymore)
I didn’t buy anything, except I did have the leggings/Ponte pants in my cart up until checkout when I decided not to buy them right now. Because it’s hot. The link goes to a pair of army green ponte pants, which is the same fabrication, different color, and the ones I tried on had the seam down the front-side of the legs, which I really liked. I can’t seem to find that exact pair online. They were great though, I’m wearing a medium, and they’re nearly identical to but less weighty than my HELMUT cocoon leggings from last year (the Mossimo leggings have the same seam going down the front-side of the leg as the HELMUT ones- take a look). I LOVED most of all the way they held everything in. Seriously. I will buy them eventually.
I’ll probably also get the v-neck drape-y tee in a couple of colors; it’ll be good for layering. It’s very similar to T by Alexander Wang, but as you can see on me, it’s not that oversized (I’m wearing a medium), so I might actually get a large so it doesn’t cling to my *ss as much! Overall it’s a great longer-length t-shirt for not a lot of money. I also like the printed tunic I’m wearing in the middle, but it might be just a bit TOO long in the back (can you see in the mirror?) for me. And it has a zip placket instead of a button placket, which is a little weird, and not great for when you’re sitting down. I did like the print though, and the idea of throwing it on with the leggings.
Finally, the sweatshirt. This was the first thing that caught my eye, because you know, I’m obsessed with sweatshirts. I loved the print, the style – it’s “mixed media” LOL- and the fit. I don’t know if I’ll get it eventually though, I have a great Etoile Isabel Marant sweatshirt that fits similarly. And I’m kind of feeling oversized sweatshirts lately, not as “fitted” as this one.
There were quite a few more pieces that caught my eye, but I didn’t have time to try EVERYTHING on this time. If you’re near a Target, I highly recommend going and checking out some of these pieces, and more because there’s lots of good stuff there now.
Have you found anything good at Target recently? Have you bought clothing at Target?
I also know the 3.1 Philip Lim X Target collection is coming imminently, but in principle I’m kind of opposed to those collaborations. I try to like them, but find the fabrications/styles/fit utterly disappointing. And I really really hate it when designers knock off their most popular designs for Target. I love attainable/affordable fashion, I just wish they’d come up with ORIGINAL DESIGNS for their collaborations, not deliberate copies of their already popular luxury products…
