Poofy Target Dress

Dresses will be my downfall. I just can't resist. I was looking for a movie theater and couldn't find it in the parking lot. Where the theater is located is still a mystery to me, but there was a Target. I realized the movie was already 10 minutes in and said screw it, I'm going to Target. I was doing my quick round around the clothing section when this poofy dress in the Juniors section caught my eye. I remembered seeing Gigi's post about it and decided to try it on. (You can see how she styled the dress here. Gigi has an awesome blog that I read almost daily.)
This is an XS. They only had a few of these left in the store. Isn't it cute? (Don't mind my bow "leggedness".) Ah. I have way too many dresses, but at $29.99 I just couldn't leave it there. Target does have a 90 day return policy. I kept the tags on, so if by the end of the 90 days I still haven't found an occasion to wear it I will return it. (I also got the shoes. Ahhhhhhhh. I'm bad.)
Twirly, twirly, twirly.

The skirt was so much like a tutu, I couldn't resist doing an arabesque. (Go ahead, Kate, point out everything that's wrong with it. I know my left arm is too high.)

Oh! You can get the dress here. You know you want it!

  1. OMG -- I adore you in that dress! I felt the same way in it. I wanted to do a lot of twirls, en pointe, etc...

    Thanks for the post. Will link it to the post on my blog.

  4. Ooo! I'm so excited you guys commented!

    Gigi, I did get the shoes from Target. They're suede black peep toe. I don't usually go for peep toe, but these were perfect. (Thanks for letting me link to your blog!)

    AppGal, I've been reading your blog for months! I'm so flattered you stopped by. We definitely share the love for Patagonia and Chacos!

  5. I bought this dress for my daughter after reading Gigi's review. She is undecided but I thought it would be nice and different for Homecoming! You look so pretty in it!
