There is always one party, every season, that you die to get into. Whether it's due to the notable guests that are set to attend, or the Instagram posts that you know will be worth possibly sneaking into an event for. This year, I was officially invited as a blogger to the Target x Altuzarra launch party, which marked my first year being invited, and was quite a milestone step for my career! Held at a venue on the West Side Highway, everyone who is anyone in fashion ventures to the West Side for a night mingling among celebs, champagne, and clothing.
Target is a go-to store for my age group, and I find myself venturing in there and unexpectedly spending hours browsing through their latest designer collaboration, or picking up some coconut milk ice cream in the freezer section. When I heard Altuzarra was the latest collection to hit the store, you could say I was just a bit excited. Known for being sexy yet sophisticated, Altuzarra impresses the industry season after season. Walking through the line at the event, and getting a glimpse at what is to come before the public does, made me realize how unimpressive this collection is. Instead of being drawn to classy fabrics and stunning patterns, items felt and looked cheap. Maybe it's due to my age not being the ideal clientele for a brand like Altuzarra, though I expected more from Target on pulling a line together that is versatile with age groups. I'd be pumped if my mom told me she was wearing something from a Target collaboration line, yet if my mom showed up in a piece of fabric from T x A, I'd be quite disappointed.
