Since today I took a short trip to Bellingham, I figured I would stop at Target to see what the fuss over the new Altuzarra collection was about. This store didn't receive all the pieces, I was disappinted to see. For example I didn't see the Faux Fur Crop Jacket in Black. I was particularly interested in checking out the Altuzarra for Target Trench Coat with Back Detail in 'black,' since I am looking for a new trench coat this fall. I am trying on size M here, one size larger than I normally wear. This coat is cute, but was too flared at the bottom for my taste (so much so that I couldn't fit it in the photo).

The other item I took to the fitting room was the Altuzarra for Target Jacquard Pencil Skirt also in 'black' and size 6. Teh fabric is similar to the one of the coat. The gold zipper at the back is exposed and looks quite cheap, in my opinion. There is a front slit on the left sie that is quite deep, so not suitable for wearing it to the office (at least not in my office).
What else I saw:
Altuzarra for Target Button Down Dress (light blue/white/natural)
Altuzarra for Target Python Pencil Skirt (natural)(similar to the J. Crew's, but darker)
The pieces could have been amazing had they been made with better quality materials. The dresses were poly, while the ankle booties were polyurethane. How about you? Did you see this collection at Target? What did you think? Please share.
Hope you had a great weekend, and have a great week ahead, everyone!
