13 May Spicing Up My Life With Victoria Beckham for Target
I’m a mom. Therefor, you have five seconds to guess where my happy place is. It’s a magical land where I can silence my preschooler with popcorn. Where I can grab a birthday present and a side dish last minute because I don’t have my shit together as a person. Where I can score an entire outfit plus lipstick plus avocados and make my husband regret sending me out for avocados. Target is my zen–my loud, crowded zen. But one thing I never usually get too excited about are Target collections. Cuz fat.
Now, I am kind of an in-betweenie at Target. I can shop the larger straight sizes sometimes. With collections however, unless they have designated plus sizes, I’m often out of luck. Usually it’s because these designers have a personal vendetta against stretch. Sometimes they just have a low-key vendetta against fats. SHRUG.
But not Becks!
The Victoria Beckham plus size collection, which is almost identical to her straight size selection, offers up to 3x and 26. Even this is limited in terms of size inclusivity, I know. But I was pleasantly surprised to find out that some of these pieces ran 1-2 sized bigger. I had to buy this skirt in a 1x when I am easily a 2.
I really loved the loud, citrus-y mod vibe of some of these pieces but the pastels were also calling to me. Mint and blush ughhhh. So good. I’ve also been on a pink kick so I pulled the trigger real quick on these shorts.
Yet, what is the ultimate test of a collection? It boils down to one question–does it have a goddamn romper?
With scallopsssssss. It’s like she knows my weaknesses–dayglow and scallops!!!
*harps and choirs*
Pleased. I haven’t been this stoked since the Who What Wear line and I hope she continues with it. Plus, there is a legit void re-interpreted retro in plus sizes. Other retailers commit too heavily to the aesthetic, which can look costume-y at times. Nothing cheesy about these pieces. I’m sold. 10/10 will buy again.
