I am the farthest youâ€™ll get from a fashion blogger, but with a blog name like Preppy Runner, Iâ€™d be remiss not to discuss two major things happening in my little pink-and-green world.
Letâ€™s start with the good, shall we?
My cell phone came pretty damn near close to blowing up yesterday as almost everyone I know alerted me through texts, Instagram, emails and Facebook that Lilly PulitzerÂ was collaborating with Target.
If youâ€™ve read this blog more than a hot second, you know I have a minor obsession with Lilly and have since college. I love the vibrant hues of the dresses and stores, and I read Lillyâ€™s bio a few years ago when I was interviewing to work for the company and was really into her irreverent sense of playing by her own rules.Â
And because I am a human being on this earth, I also love Target and what theyâ€™ve done for the fashion industry with their collaborations, making more expensive clothing available at a lower price point.
Which means I am already deciding which is the best Target to be at on April 19 (no really, northern NJ people â€” which is the best one for these kind of collabs? Obviously Iâ€™m not going to do this in the city) to get my paws on Lilly for Target. Refinery 29Â reports that the capsule will include 250!Â items, including housewares and accessories, with 200 of those items priced at $30 or less. AND the collection will also include plus-sized items. When I was overweight, I topped out at a 14-16 and was really disappointed I couldnâ€™t fit into my favorite dresses.
LILLY FOR EVERYONE!
In less happy fashion news…
Another one of my favorite brands, C. Wonder, is going under. (Rhyming unintentional.) It was first reported in December that just most of their stores would be closing, but, in fact, the entire brand is done.Â As fast fashion goes, I get a little twitchy and overwhelmed walking into an H&M or Zara, but I felt a little more at home among the bright colors in C. Wonder and knew everything would go on sale basically immediately.
What this means for you? Everything will be on massive sale as they close shop.
Whatâ€™s your favorite brand that you hope collaborates with Target one day? What about the brand youâ€™re sad no longer exists?
