Playing Dress Up/Review: Who What Wear collection at Target

Ladies, Target has a new collection out  called Who What Wear and it's a winner. The quality is actually really great and the prices match up reasonably! The whole new collection actually mixes and matches well, pretty much any piece you buy you can pair with at least two or three other items. Matter of fact, I wish the whole collection was in my closet right now!

There are some downfalls, as with every collection. This one in my opinion seems like they could've added in a few smaller sizes for the petite. The trench vest I had assumed came in XS so when I tried on the small I put it back after because I thought I could find an XS online, but it's not the case, only S M L in this one. It looks so cute but it could definitely be one size smaller for sure.

Anyways, let's get on with it! I tried a few pieces. There was a LOT of clothes so I only tried like 14 items because I have baking to do too people, lol. :P

Playing Dress Up:

 $36.99 Women's Rib Sweater Midi Dress. 
Size S
 I love the Olive color, comes in black too. 
It's very on trend right now and can be dressed down & up. Fits like a glove. TTS.
I would buy it on sale.

Midi Shirt Dress Convertible Sleeve $36.99.
I'm not so sure about the length on me. I usually like midi dresses but this seems a bit too long. Could it be the sneakers? lol! The dress quality is great and is a soft denim which is awesome.

Midi shirt dress with convertible sleeves $36.99
Same dress different color story. Love the black! Still long, but could look great with heels. Just beware, anyone shorter than me (I'm 5'3) this would be a long dress, I mean it's practically at my ankles, actually I think its' the angle. Online the picture shows it's right below the model's knees. #shortgirlproblems

Skinny Crop Pant $29.99
Button Up Blouse $24.99

Pants: Size 2 Olive (also in black) I love! TTS and fit so good. They are really just the perfect pant. They remind me of a few I bought in the past from Gap.
Blouse: Size S. Half tucked in. So pretty! You must have one in every color (This one is in black and white only. While the button down version  comes in 7 colors/prints) in your closet! I was talking to Tracy about this blouse and we both agreed that this is very similar to the popular Lush v neck blouses at Nordstrom. Very versatile.

 Tucked in and proper.

Bateau T Shirt $19.99
Tee Size S. I love this tee too, very comfy and cute.
The length is a bit long. but I usually do a half tuck anyway so it's ok with me.
And I'm really loving the olive color as you can see!

Slim Boyfriend Denim $34.99
Trench Vest $39.99
Wearing head to toe WWW.
Jeans: They say slim boyfriend fit, but on me they just look like they don't fit! 
I'm not comfortable with that and I like boyfriend jeans. I'm wearing a size 2.
Trench Vest: I really love it but like I mentioned before, I wish it was just one size smaller.
The inside of the vest cinches but doesn't really hold the cinch unless you were to knot it.

Maybe I should just get it and try to shrink it! :D hah!

Button Back Tank $22.99
Wrap Front Culotte Pant $29.99 
 Tank Size S. The tank is fun yet classy. 
Reminds me of past designer target collabs, I think it was Philip Lim.
Pants size 4: or pants meet skirt. Its cool, but I don't feel like it was fitting me well. Too tight in the waist and it seems to pull to one side, since the zipper is at one side of your hip instead of the back. I might suggest trying a size larger, but I didn't have time. I really like it, so if I see it again I'll try a size up. Let me know in the comments if you try it!

Silk Peplum Blouse $24.99
 I should've went for xs in this one, it's roomy in the bust, I'm cinching it to show what an xs would be like. Just a very pretty blouse! 

Lace Tee $22.99
 Love the lace shirts, it comes in white too. It has a lot of stretch.
And would look cool over a tank or with cute fashion bralettes if you're daring! 
Keep it sophisticated with these pants or with a midi skirt.

Lace with a close up of the pants. You can see how the crotch seems to be pulling to my right.

Peplum Utility Jacket $39.99
 Super cute coat! Great price point and the jacket you need to transition to spring & summer.

All buttoned up. Flares a little in the back. FYI the sleeves roll up/scrunch up with ease.

The one piece I really wanted was the belted bag in red or black but they didn't carry them in-store store. I'll have to check again or hope they restock online. *Update: you can buy them online right now.

Check out the knotted belts in the middle! A must have!

What did you guys think? What did you get or is on your list?

My friend Tracy's Notebook of Style has an AMAZING review on her blog post too.

Adam Lippes for Target Review! Playing Dress Up!

The Adam Lippes for Target "Mad for Plaid" collection launched in-stores & online today! 
Plus sizes are online only. 

So there was no one shopping! This was the first time in collab history where I walked in 20 minutes after opening and shopped the whole collection with no interference. Not one person. There were limited sizes of each item on the floor, two of each size. The only things I noticed missing were the tumblers! I suspect not enough customers were informed about who this awesome designer was. Either way, the items were decent quality and a lot made of cotton, clothing ran large, flats were tts and too pricey for what the Target customer usually spends on clothing.

 Here I am trying on the hidden wedge pointed toe flat. These have the same feel from earlier collab shoes from Prabal Gurung for Target. Not sure how comfy by the end of the day but felt good, just stiff. A dust bag is included which is a nice touch. I'm also wearing the men's plaid checked beanie for $14.99, I got for the hubby but I have plans to steal it from him. And the backbacks were my favorite. So so cute. As you see in the pic above the inside of the bags have a nice gold designer label that reads Adam Lippes for Target.

 The Pillows were plush and the blankets are not worth it. Better to wait for a sale.

 My favorites men's piece, besides the beanie!

 See nothing missing...just tumblers! 

 Looooove the weekender bag. I want it..$49.99 is pushing it for me since I spent so much on the LcRunway collection at Kohl's this month. But I may splurge anyway. It's one of those pieces you will use forever.
 The other side. Everything on this side was nice quality too. the third shelf is all dog stuff. The bar sets were manly chic. Seems perfect for a bro kind of household. If that makes any sense. It's beautiful though.

 Bags and Shoes! Can never have enough. My least fave bag was probably the smallest, the tan bucket bag. Just too small for anything. If you are going for the bucket bag, I say the black and white, its roomier.

Playing Dress Up:
I had to size down to XS on everything. It's very long and runs big. I'm 5'3 for reference and usually wear a Small in tops/dresses at Target size 26 in pants.

 This was cute untied at the waist on me. When I tied it up it just felt like a bathrobe w/out sleeves. I'm not sold, but for clearance I would consider it.

 This one is my favorite clothing item. I don't mind the long armpit holes, I thought it would bother me but it looks cute with a tank top or long sleeve under. Its 100% cotton too. $39.99 was just a bit too high still. But if I hadn't already spent all my shopping money this month I'd be all over this since Adam Lippes makes great knits.
 Aye yi yi. It's really long and wide and well like a Mexican poncho blanket. 
I don't like the details at the neck..cheapens the look somehow. However it is very soft and warm. 

 This dress looked great on a few instagrammers, I think I'm too petite for it. 

 The pants I love! 
There's a cute checked pattern on the side and drawstring. 
Very comfy and slim fit.

 I don't care for the top, it feels too masculine. Maybe with a skirt instead. the cuffs were interesting, but I don't like the neckline. Also its very long like a shirt dress. Is it a shirt dress? 
That would explain things! :D
 Nah. This is a popular shape for coats but a few people can pull it off. 
I ain't one. It's so big on me! It is really soft and very light yet warm.
 Yay bags! Not my favorite one as previously mentioned.
 Perfect size with handle too.
Weekender be mine!

What did you think of the collection? Did you end up shopping in-store or online?
I'm waiting for clearance but I did buy the beanie :D!
