We learned a valuable lesson today: City Target is not the place to count on purchasing your collaboration must-haves. Unbelievably, bags, Boom! attire, and other key items were not stocked at the San Francisco City Target. Serramonte and Colma, on the other hand, received the full line of merchandise from the Philip Lim x Target collection, although it was picked through promptly. By the time we had a chance to check out the selection at Serramonte around 2pm, there were no Boom! items, no sweaters, and two women's trenches remained in medium, but they seemed to run large. The sweater dress also remained but only in large and extra large.
At first glance, we thought there were more bags than expected, but then we realized the Lim merchandise was mixed with various other brands. But check out the photos for what remained, and if you go, let us know what you scored!
