VBxTarget Plus-Sizes

I'm pretty sure you've read enough Victoria Beckham for Target stories to fill your quota for the year, but I hope you can read just one more! I've seen and read a bunch of interesting commentary about the collection over the past few weeks. People either absolutely loved it or hated it and I can honestly say that I for one loved the collection!

I was In being honest I purchased  13 pieces from the collection and kept 10 of those.  Being no stranger to shopping Target collections, half of the excitement for me is the shopping. When I found out my local store was carrying the plus-size collection my excitement and planning went into over drive.  I went in with a plan for how I wanted to shop. I joined forces with Pepper of Pretty Plus Pep in creating a strategy to make sure we got the items that we wanted. Pepper and I spent the night across from the Target, and made a slumber party of it. That was the most fun I have had getting ready to shop! I wasn't sure how this collection was going to go, cause I've been on the other side of selling out and that wasn't happening to me this time!

Even going in with a plan, there were still a few surprises thrown in for me. One was I fell in love with a few pieces that I didn't expect. This skirt was defiantly one of them. When I was in the dressing room, I saw it on another customer and ran out to grab myself one. In person the fabric was so amazing and it fit so well I couldn't leave it on the shelf. Honestly it looks like it cost way more than it actually did. The other surprise is that those 3 pieces that I returned were in my top 5 list of things I wanted, but unfortunately they just didn't work for me.

I purchased a 3x in all dresses, 2x in tops and a 26W in pants. I do have to have some alterations done to the bust of several of my dresses. They were cut on a larger bias than I expected.  I have a bigger mid-section so I always purchase for that and get it altered. I got this skirt in a 26W and probably should have done a 24W, but I had the waist taken in and that fixed my problems with the skirt. This look was honestly my absolute favorite thing I purchased, which is surprising since I had no plans on buying any of it.

I hope Target continues to put plus-sizes in stores, I hope they expand it and put them in every store! I had soooo much fun shopping with my fellow fashionistas, in store. And everyone women deserves the shopping experience!

Did you buy any pieces from the collection? There is still some online. Below are a few of my favorite pieces! Also my friend Gavyn from The Curvy Cutie did an amazing Haul, you should check it out!


Thank you for reading!

  1. I really wanted that orange one shoulder dress but, at 5 ft 8 with some hips, it was too short for me. I wound up keeping the hot pink tank and slacks. I really wished VB would have offered versions of the simple tank and shift-style dresses she's so known for.

  2. You look so elegant! I didn't get any of the pieces (forced shopping hiatus, LOL) but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it. Can't wait to you style the other pieces - either in another post or on instagram. Your style is just cool - chic and classic with your own flair. Love It!
