Yesterday, Zhenya and I got our butts out of bed to head to our local Target to shop the Adam Lippes collection! I’m so glad we did, because there were definitely a few keepers, a few more items I still want! Check out Zhenya’s post about the collection, and here is my review of what I tried on and kept! I’m trying to be better about calculating cost per wear, rather than focusing on cost at the time.
First up, this gorgeous blue painterly plaid blouse! I really liked it, but then when I saw the back of it, the longer length and pleating, I LOVED it. It is super comfy and soft too, a great blouse that I can wear with jeans, paired wtih a midi skirt, underneath a cardigan or blazer. A very versatile top with a fun pattern, and the sleeves are flattering for anyone. Definitely something I’ll wear often!

Next up, a long vest with a super chic pattern. I just wanted to try it on for the sake of trying it on, but I absolutely LOVED it. Super comfy and I know that I’ll be wearing this probably once a week come winter – the pockets are soft and chic too! It comes with a felt belt, but I can easily switch it out with a more dressy belt if need be.

Then the one clothing item I really really wanted from this collection, the shirt dress! It can also easily be worn as a duster (thank you for the correct terminology Zhenya – thank God for true fashion friends)! Sadly, even though I loved the style, and the comfort (same material as the blouse I got), I just didn’t see myself wearing this piece very often. For the sake of my budget, I sadly said no. But – who’s to say I won’t get it if it is still available and on sale in my size!

My top priority was getting this cute Adam Lippes dog treat canister to store Emma’s treats! We already have one, but it isn’t as cute and chic as this one. It is made of ceramic, but doesn’t have a rubber seal (someone asked me that yesterday). There was no question about this one for me, it was coming home! I shared a picture of Emma on Instagram, who behaved long enough to get a couple treats out of her new jar.

Thanks Brooke! Emma says thank you 🙂
RachelSeptember 28, 2015 at 10:18 AM
I am one to shop based on wear for the money lately too rather than price so I totally understand your purchase here of cute pieces. What a sweet dog jar.
RachelSeptember 29, 2015 at 7:45 AM
Thanks Rachel! I honestly felt so good about my purchases after I checked out, instead of feeling guilty. I think that’s how you should feel every time!

It’s super cozy too!

I had never heard of this designer. I love that grid print blouse and especially the gorgeous sweater coat – great price too. I might need that one lol.

Love that first shirt!! I might need to run to Target and see if I can find it! – Svetlana @<a href="https://lifewithasideofwine.com/">Life With a Side of Wine</a>

Great pieces for fall. So glad you got the plaid sweater dress.

That best was definitely the standout piece for me! I was so impressed with the fit and how quality it was for the price. I’m so excited to wear it when it gets colder. The weekender bags were so amazing too! I’m surprised the bags weren’t scooped up in this collection. I love the cozy shearling on them! <3
RachelSeptember 29, 2015 at 8:06 AM
I know right?! I was like nope, this looks like something I had from Forever 21 a couple years ago and didn’t have the quality but I felt the pockets and liked the style so tried it on. IN LOVE, and yes I can’t believe the quality for the price!

I’m kinda in love with that vest. I’m glad you got it, looking forward to seeing it styled.

Thanks for this, I’m hoping to get to Target this week to check out the collection! The painterly plaid blouse is high on my wish list — so pretty and it looks great on you.
I love the print on the weekender bag but I wish it was a little bigger and not as boxy. Old Navy has a similar one and I think I might end up with that version.
Rachel's LookbookSeptember 29, 2015 at 12:44 PM
Absoultely! Go find it! I usually don't like the way boxy tops look on me, but the back + sleeves I think would flatter anyone, and it's just a super cute style!

Love this collection. Definitely good contrasts with all of the pieces!
Closet FashionistaSeptember 30, 2015 at 10:02 AM
Ooh! So many great pieces! I love the layering vest!

Don’t know how I missed this collaboration, but I’ll be headed to Target for sure! Love that blouse!

I think you made a good call not buying the shirtdress. I wanted to love the vest but it didn’t love me.
Hope to see your Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
