Right on Target: Black Dresses for Fall

I don't know about you, but I was slightly disappointed in the Richard Chai designer line for Target -- I just couldn't help but feeling like the materials were a bit sketchy, and the items that seemed to be a bit less cheap in construction just weren't "me". For some reason, I tend to like the filler lines a lot better (you know, the stuff they have for about a month before the next big designer line comes out). Last time, I found a great ruffled floral dress in a flattering shape and lovely material -- it looked more expensive than it was, which is a plus.
I needed some retail therapy yesterday, so I popped into Target to discover their filler "Go International" stuff was on the racks, and before I knew it, I had purchased two new dresses! It was one of those instinctual, "I must have it" moments. Those moments can be dangerous! For some reason, I have been buying a lot of dresses. This is odd since I don't wear dresses on a daily basis. My theory is that I have been thinking a lot about my future, my professional demeanor and attire, and all of the conferences and interviews I have in store over the next few years. I think I am storing these dresses up like a chipmunk stores up nuts, LOL ;) Ok, that is sad -- I need to find more excuses to wear dresses!

Here they are in the ads (I will model them at a later date...):

The 1940's, lady-like dress (you can't tell here, but it is really lovely material)


Target, Diamond Dress, $39.99

And the Wednesday Adams-ish dress (really cool, angled sleeves...)

Target, Ruffle Bib Shift Dress, $32.99

Those are some nice dresses. I always like Target online, but I usually find my size all sold out whenever I finally make it to a store!

This is how I shop for clothes - squirreling them away for my "grown up" life. haha.
