bunny dress

bunnies 001


I was so happy on Friday when I got to wear this dress that I had picked up the week before. I just love the pattern and full skirt, they both made me feel like kid. But in the 13 going on 30 kind of way - a kid that got to be all dressed up and rock some sexy shoes! (is it bad that I put my shoes on and then only painted the toenails you could see?)

Even though I love this dress and have already planned a couple of other ways to wear it; I do have to say that it reaffirms my feelings about Target (and Kohl's) clothing - you get what you pay for. This dress is fun, and I really do like it, but the fit is jut slightly off in the straps/bust (now, I only half blame the stores/makers - being a size 0/2 and 5'8, I'm not exactly average), and the material is a stiff rayon. I will say that I picked the bunny dress over this one because it has cotton lining, though I'm considering going back for the other one as well. I love a good deal, but I am also looking for quality pieces that are made well with nice, breathable fabrics. Basically, I want it all - for a great price!

I will say that I will buy cheaper (both made and quality of fabric) items when I know that they are trend pieces that might go out of style quickly. What do you look for when you shop? Do you spend a little more on styles that are classics over trends?

  2. I'm a bargain hunter! I rarely pay big bucks on things, only when they are really really perfect. And I'm so picky that this rarely happens. I also found that a lot of pricy items are knocked off faster than you can say "oh that's expensive". Even the mid-range stuff. The art in all of this is to find pieces that don't look as cheap as they are, haha. Oh, and I don't thrift. It sounds nice in theory, but I just can't bring myself to like it :-(

  5. So I'm clicking through your blog, and thinking, "Wow, this girl is super cute/stylish/sweet", and then I'm thinking, "Wow..that looks familiar...". Dude. Your Reston is MY Reston. Well, actually I live in Stering, but I've been working/playing in Reston for years. (I worked at the J Crew on Market st. all through college...)

    Sooo--Hi Neighbor/friend! We should get together sometime. I promise I'm not a creeper. :) (Although, that sounded creepy...darn it!)
