Anything that Victoria Beckham does, I support. She’s a boss lady in her personal and professional life. I mean, she is my celebrity girl crush and on my dream board as someone I look up to. First of all, she’s married to the very handsome David Beckham and they have adorable children together AND she runs her own successful business, what’s not to love about that? I was first fascinated with the diva about 20 years ago with her singing debut of ‘Wannabe’ as Posh Spice with the Spice Girls. From there, her professional life flourished into other directions with modeling and then starting her own clothing line. I’ve followed her journey because I’ve felt like I could relate to parts of her life and quiet, feminine nature. Learning to Fly and That Extra Half an Inch have inspired me to continue following my dreams and were both really good reads!
I won’t lie I didn’t find this news about her collaboration with Target until a week ago from a party with Seattle Blogger Jenn from Hello Rigby. In that instant I immediately opened my calendar to set the time and date to be there when Target opened, I couldn’t miss trying on her collection. These are pieces that I can wear and I know my clients would love to know about. Unfortunately, when I arrived, the items featured at the Target store in Lynnwood were not the favorites I was eyeing online. In fact, the pieces there, were actually the ones I didn’t even care for from the website and I didn’t take the time to try anything on.
A little story behind her collaboration, the items range from $6 to $70 but most are around $40. The pieces I have chosen below also come in Plus Size and there’s a separate baby clothing section you can check out online as well. Her new philosophy is definitely into play here with boyish silhouettes, soft tailoring, and comfort. I didn’t feature any trousers below but she’s loving the loose fit pant with heels in her own outfits and decided to add them to her collection too. The only reason I didn’t choose any trousers on my list below is because I find that Target pants are usually not a reliable fit and if you’re shopping online, it might be best to go with safer items. They’re also probably pretty long and I’d have to get them hemmed, which might not be worth it. By all means if you want to add the trousers to your cart, go right ahead, you’ll get one of her signature items.
I went home to do a little shopping but many items had already sold out online when I got home. Check out my review on what to buy and not to buy below. What are you going to purchase? Take photos of your outfits or pieces and share them online, I’d love to hear your feedback on the fit!
WHAT TO BUY
Jackets are the easiest way to dress up an outfit and bombers are a nice lightweight option for springtime. The reason I chose the mint color over the blush is because my closet is full of blush, mint will be a fun color to play with when dressing up.
For those of you that want to try a new trend in a subtle way, black is always a safe bet. This sweater has the bell sleeve but the is completely black with the white color block hem in white. It’s just a simple classic sweater that’s easy to accessorize by simply throwing on a long necklace or big earrings.
We could all use some more color in our life and this is a great piece to wear casually with rolled up jeans and sneakers or a silk summer pant.
This is going to be so flattering! You can tell the fabric is soft and will easily flow and skim the body. It’s very feminine and can be paired nicely with a colorful pant or a fitted skirt.
WHAT NOT TO BUY
The fabric and retro print together look very cheap. I couldn’t even believe it’s part of her collection because it’s not like her normal streamline styles at all. I wasn’t impressed with this one.
What is that? Some kind of tassel? The retro vibe is off, in fact, the description says those are tulips….
This one I did see in person and it’s so straight and stiff, there’s a similar dress in this same style which I can only imagine fits very much like this one. I almost tried it on but didn’t feel it was worth waiting in line for.
The size of those flowers and the way that dress is structured will make you look completely bottom heavy. There’s no way to remedy the cut, style, or print of that dress. I like the idea of the drop waist but it needs to be in another fabric and come in on the side a little more to be flattering.
