For Spring and Summer, I am really into patterns and prints. They are bright and make a bold statement. I usually have a very ‘black’ wardrobe with fun accessories to snazzy it up but I found this dress at ahem, TARGET and I couldn’t say no!
During this time of year, my closet is challenging. I want to purchase spring looking clothing however, my skin practically goes all vampire when it hits the sun (and not the cool, glittery Twilight way). So, my fix is to transition my colorful clothes with some winter time pieces. This helps break up the white girl look but also makes you look like you’re not a tourist at the beach… um, I saw at least 3 tourist wearing pastel colored booty shorts this past weekend. Not a good look for winter skin coloring.
This dress has so many different patterns going on and it’s super flattering in all the right areas. This is one of the designer brands that came into Target- Peter Pilotto. I really love the floppy skirt. Used together- the use of the red, black and white combo is a very dominant color choice so it gives the dress a nice girly touch.
Let me tell you something funny about designers at Target. Mom and I LOVE them. They have had a few huge launches like the Christmas time launch (previewed during Revenge one night) so we were there at 8 am. You know who else was there? No One! It was so sad that we came running in asking where the new Christmas designer branded items were and… we were the only ones there.
Oh well, y’all don’t go shop there on designer reveals and leave all the Brian Atwood leather elbow length gloves for me.. I’ll gladly take them all!
Ok, so back to this fabulous dress.. the pattern is very cool and pops! It’s made very well with a black slip underneath as well as a key hole in the back. It came with a color block belt which I thought was a little much so that’s why I switched it to brown.
I love a cool pair of shades and I had to show you these funky, chic ones. They are from Madewell in Charleston (just opened 2 months ago!) and I love them. They don’t have that extended nose piece so when you swoop them onto your head, it doesn’t get caught and rip your hair out. You know what I’m talking about…
This was a personal style blog so I did have a mismatch of things but I will tell you, this dress is on CLEARANCE at Target so you can get it at a good price.
Unfortunately, the others are slightly older: Ann Taylor Cardigan | Betsey Johnson Knee High Socks | Target Wedge Boots
