Rodarte for Target Dress and Argyle Cardigan

NUDE DRESS - Rodarte for Target
ARGYLE CARDIGAN - Old Navy
FLOWER HEADBAND - Just.Lovely.Things
BROWN/GOLD BELT - Vintage (Thanks, Mom!)
BROWN FLORAL WEDGES - Seychelles
EARRINGS - Forever 21
PIGTAILS - in her own creation (a pajama "coat" over her clothes)

 

I picked up Princess Sparkles and another little 3-year old boy, Overalls, from Moms Day Out and was shocked when I saw Sparkles turn to her friend, hand him her lunch box and say, "hold this, please" (actually, I'm not sure she said please, but I'm hoping she did).  To my surprise, he held it for her.  All the way to the car.  Overalls even stopped Princess Sparkles from going near the street.  He was such a little gentleman.

I decided to go preppy/girly (after all that menswear, can you blame me?) for my "What I Wore Wednesday" outfit.  I got this dress at Target a few weeks ago when I went crazy and snatched up as many $10 Target designer dresses as I could find in my size.  I always liked this one in the magazines, and with a little adjustments (AKA cutting those bows off the shoulders), I really like it.  I mean, how can I not?  It reminds me of a ballet tutu and who doesn't love that?

Anyway, it was fun to get all girlied up.  Now all I need is Camouflage to come home and treat me like a lady.  Maybe I can even get him to carry stuff around for me and stop me from doing anything dangerous like going into the street.  You gotta train them young :)  Guess Overalls' mommy is doing a good job!

I can't believe you got so lucky to get FIVE $10 dresses!! I could only find one! =/ You look gorgeous in that super feminine dress.

That is just too sweet! I only wish my little guy treated his girlfriends that way. He's quite the ladies' man at school. They love him, but he chases them around and growls at them. lol

I love that you kept everything soft with that dress; and used the cardigan to dress down the look a bit.

Had my doubts about this dress as too lingerie but you have really put together a great outfit. The argyle is a really original finish and shoes are perfect. Love Pigtails coat with two feet dragging behind. Another original thinker!

That was one of the dresses I had considered buying. Looks so cool on you. Love your daughter making the boy carry her bag. So typical! :)

Bonnie said...

This is the first time I have seen someone wear a Rodarte dress from Target, and I have to say that I LOVE IT.
Now I need a trip to Target.
Where I will also probably buy a ton of other crap I don't need.
Because that is what I do at Target.

I love that dress! I remember seeing it and liking it but wondering if I'd be able to wear it often. But you made it totally wearable for day, I love it!

That is a great dress! Soft and feminine! :)

Hihi Princess Sparkles and Overalls! What a cutie! I hope he remains a gentleman when he grows up! :P
