Affordable Designer: Peter Pilotto for Target

by Elle




I love to stroll through downtown Honolulu. I like the blending of old and new, the vintage and the modern.  When I saw this dress from the Peter Pilotto for Target collection, I instantly fell in love with stained glass kaleidescope design. I like how the light blue in the dress fades into the vibrant orange and pink.  It reminds ofme orchids floating in water.  I’m fairly new at following designer collaborations of Target and  H and M, but I always manage to find a couple of pieces from each collection that I can work into my wardrobe.

I am going to admit that adding something designer to the closet for an affordable price is exciting and not to mention, pocketbook friendly.  You can say, like many people, I love designer items, but I am also on a budget. So a girl can appreciated when H and M or Target has designer collaborations that make designer items accessible and affordable for mass consumption. It’s gives people like you and me access to designers, but  it’s also a great opportunity for designers to get exposure.

I’ve been waiting for the Peter Pilotto for Target colloboration for a couple of months now. I definitely picked out my favorite items last month when the lookbook came out. I love the classic and architectural lines of the collection as well as the refreshing kaleidescope prints that Peter Pilotto is known for.   When the Peter Pilotto for Target collaboration arrived two  weeks ago in stores, I decided to check it out to see if the items I picked out were still available. I bought three items from the collection, a cropped sweater, a dropped waist dress and  the dress featured above. I chose pieces from the collection that I thought worked best with items already in my closet. I have to be honest, I had some difficulty choosing among the items that I picked out and finally choose items according to fit and color.

What did you chose from the collection? Let me know.
