Earlier today I checked out the LPLP Linea Pelle for Target collection, a cheap-chic line of handbags, belts and bracelets by designer leathergoods brand Linea Pelle. I really wanted to like this line but overall I was disappointed. I hate to say something looks cheap - if you happen to like the collection, I don't want to offend - but Target didn't do a very good job with this line in my opinion. The hobos that I expressed an earlier interest in were featherlight - mind you, I don't need an excessively heavy handbag, but it's got to have some weight so you can balance it properly on your shoulder. That weight also gives a bag its luxe, genuine-leather look and feel, which was so clearly missing from these plastic purses. The bracelets were cool but pricey ($9.99 for two) as were the smaller wristlets and cross-body bag. If you want a fun, cheap purse for spring, you're better off just going with one of the less expensive bags from Mossimo or Merona and calling it a day. I'll post some of my favorites from those brands later.
Have you seen the LPLP Linea Collection in person? What did you think?
