Growing up in New Jersey, the land of diners & malls, shopping was always a big part of my socialization. Black Friday was an annual tradition with the women in my family, and my best friend and I could count on more than one visit a month to one of our local malls. So when Target started popping up all over the state, it quickly became our go-to for regular shopping trips as there was practically one in every town.
Target was the first brand I remember offering a designer collaboration, and as a budding fashionista I was so excited to get to shop “designer for less.” But collection after collection was a huge disappointment, as almost nothing ever fit my chubby adolescent body. I settled for accessories and prayed for weight loss so that I could finally fit into the clothes I wanted.
Well, years have passed, and both Target & I have changed our views on bigger bodies, as finally ALL the Target designer collabs that are part of the 20th anniversary collection are available in size XS-3X!
I’m so excited to FINALLY be able to buy some of the pieces I lusted after for years!
