New dress; green things



I followed up a gorgeous day in Brooklyn yesterday with a visit to Target (which I was thrilled to find - we don't have those in Manhattan!) I took an armload of clothes into the dressing room and did my quickest-change routine ever. A beautiful lime-greenish dress called out to me from the wall, and although it is totally unlike my usual style, I loved it:

It's all cotton, but has a pretty sheen - I think it'll be perfect to wear on one of the billion hot, sticky nights I have to look forward to this summer...


Fitting myself in a dress is a nightmare, and it's one of the few times I wish I was wealthy so I could have all my clothes tailored to me. There are tons of structured, lovely vintage-style dresses in Target now, but sadly, they all fit me from the top, but the bottom is another matter. The funniest dress was a gorgeous little number on clearance - amusingly enough, my head was too big to fit through the neckhole. Yup. I got one big head.


Thanks to everyone who chimed in on the Feeling Stitchy badges! The most popular also happened to be the ones I picked for the blog:

Yay! Hope everyone is enjoying the Spring, and having weather close to the glorious stuff we're experiencing in NY.

You look lovely in that color. You look so much like my friend Floresita that I grew up with, it's crazy.

That color really suits you. I love Target. The fact that it was on clearance makes the whole deal sweeter, I think. : )

You guys are sweet!

Faintastic! What a coincidence! That's just my screen name, of course, but how cute.

vintagekitchenkitsch - it wasn't on clearance, but it was only 24.99! There's a very fancy looking picture of a model wearing the blue version on the website now. Her hair looks nowhere near as messy as mine. :)

Oh, gorgeous dress! The color is perfect with your skintone. Perhaps I should swing by Target...hmm...

Ooh, what a great dress! I've been buying dresses in anticipation of summer too... though I'm not convinced it'll ever come.
