Tommy Hilfiger Prep World Pop Up Shop



This past Saturday morning I went to the Tommy Hilfiger Prep World Pop Up Shop here in Los Angeles (find the online collection here). I really wanted to go the first day but I had to work :( On this gloomy Saturday morning (June gloom is real!) the Prep World shop lit up the day! I went with my mom and I think she was even more excited than I was! The actual shop was SO CUTE! It looked like the perfect beach cottage. Inside was even better! Anchor and whale pillows everywhere! I completely forgot to take photos inside (too busy shopping) but here is a link to some press (here, here, and here).

I bought a men's anchor oxford shirt that I had my eye on as soon as the collection debuted online. I'm sad the small was sold out but the medium will make a perfect beach coverup!


I also bought anchor shorts. I don't usually wear shorts this length but I couldn't resist! I actually have a whole theory on how most bermuda shorts, capris, and cropped/3/4 length sleeves just make tall people look like they can't find clothes that fit BUT we'll save that post for another day.



Anchor and whale pins:


Anyway... the shop was amazing! Every detail was perfect! The sales associates were so friendly and helpful. Many of them work for Tommy/corporate in New York and were lucky enough to travel with the shop. They even gave us signed copies of the True Prep book!

  4. I completely agree about the tall comment. I am 6' and let me tell you it's more difficult than it sounds to find properly lengthed (is that a word?) clothes. Anyway everything is super cute including the whale and anchor pins which I may just have to make a special trip just to get!

  5. So adorable! I love the pictures! I wish they would travel the pop up store around to some other states, so more people would have a chance to visit it!

  10. Oooo, I am so jealous! I've been dying to see the pop-up shop in real life ever since I first heard about it a while back. I'm increasingly impressed with Tommy Hilfiger lately, and cannot wait to see what the brand comes out with next!

  11. I was visiting California...three weeks ago and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Grove and Farmer's Market and too my surprise step into the TH Pop-Up store! I could have lived in it! I wanted a decoy duck!I did not purchase anything, but loved the striped cardigan sported by the salesperson and the gentleman salesman who helped me was very kind and complimented me on my Bass anchor shorts and Lilly scarf sail away scarf! The clothes and accessories were lovely. Did you see the cookies?
