Mulberry for Target

If you don't know, my other love after makeup is handbags! I am obsessed with bags as much as I am with makeup, so it's no surprise that I was highly anticipating the arrival of the New Mulberry for Target collaboration.

I went to my local Target yesterday to pick up the new Just Dance 2 (which is so much fun btw, you have to get it!), and check out the bags.

I had my eye on this one,

but I was highly disappointed in these bags. Maybe my expectations were too high. I know the point is to give people the opportunity to buy a bag based off the original  designer bags but I wish they would have used better materials to make the bags. This one was super stiff. I'm sure you can break it in after some wear, but I just wasn't impressed.

Also another big downer was the fact that on the turn key lock, it is engraved with Mulberry for Target, I just don't like that the bag says Target on it. I love Target, I'm there all the time, lol, but I don't want my bags to say Target on them. :)

I wish they would have used some kind of faux leather and charged more, which I would have been willing to pay for, but not pvc, which this is made out of.

I don't know, it's a cute bag, but I'm not really impressed. I might regret not getting it later on when it's all sold out! Ha!

Have you all checked out the Mulberry for Target bags? What did you think about them?

I was kind of disapointed too! They definitely could have used better materials. I've seen better looking Forever 21 bags that are even cheaper! I did get one bag (the large black tote with pockets in the front). I kind of regret buying it though. It's cute, and I've already used it as an overnight bag but I think that's probably all I'll ever use it for! I thought it was cute at the time, but now I'm just kind of ok with it. Oh well, it wasn't a total wash!

I have my eye on this one too! I read blogs saying it is pretty cheap looking. I have to check it out myself in stores. Thats a bummer they're not what we expected. :(

@Beautygirl24, I know I've seen better bags at F21 too!

@Miss ♥ Nikka, It is a bummer! I really wanted to love this collaboration but it was a let down! Hopefully they improve the quality of materials in the future. :)
