As I type this, I am hyperventilating through a brown paper lunch bag in anticipation for Sunday’s launch of the Victoria Beckham x Target collaboration. I am certain I will immediately regret writing this article upon completion because I fear you will all congest Target’s website on Sunday and ruin my chances of snatching up the clothing items I need way more than you do. Victoria Beckham is my spirit animal. But since all is fair in love and fashion I shall continue.
Every morsel of my being has patiently waited for this time to come ever since my girl Posh made the career switch from pop star to fashion designer. We all knew it was coming. We watched her contemplate on what to wear in Spice World, debating between “the little Gucci dress, or the little Gucci dress”. We saw the iconic lace-trimmed slip dresses she often donned, a style that has made quite the comeback in the last couple of years. Her loyalty to Manolo Blahnik pumps and oversized gradient sunglasses is unopposed. With her eponymous fashion line came luxurious minimalism, and her second line Victoria, Victoria Beckham brought more flirty, playful designs into the world. She won the Best Brand award at the British Fashion Awards in 2011 and 2014, and even opened an amazing flagship store in London which I, of course, have become no stranger to on my visits to London. Each time, though, after carefully studying the gorgeous designs in awe at the Dover Street location, I leave empty handed, as the hefty price tags are as grand as the garments they’re attached to. Victoria Beckham’s collaboration with Target is the answer to my shallow-pocket dreams.
There’s not much more to say because in my eyes, everything this woman touches turns to gold. I should mention that nearly every item is under $40 and comes in a wide range of sizes. I’ll keep it simple. Here are the six key pieces that I absolute must get my hands on from the VBxTarget collection. Will I purchase the other items too? Obviously. But these are the pieces I will throw elbows for in store. Shop all styles in store or from Target.com on Sunday, but only after I’ve purchased everything first, okay? Thanks xoxo
