I have been on the fence about Phillip Lim since he hit the fashion scene in 2004. Not sure on what side I sit at this point but I have to admit that there are a few things that I have liked. This past season Phillip did what every up-and-coming designer does-- partnered with a big box store. No, not Target, but rather what I consider to be the most boring store of them all-- the Gap.
The designs were actually nice and I even considered pressing the checkout button on Gap.com . Upon consideration, however, I thought it was silly to spend $78 on what is basically, a white Gap shirt. Much rather have a white Miu Miu or Prada shirt if I'm nearing the triple digit price tag. (I love the spandex in their material.)
Time as passed on and Winter has turned into Spring and Spring into Summer. Now that $78 short is 7 bucks at your local Gap. For that price, who can say no? Online however, there are only two styles left and the price is far more at almost $30. Either way $7 or $30, the shirt is a good deal. I hope you agree.
