Hi, before we get to the main event, I want to take care of some housekeeping...
1. Don't forget to enter my Liberty of London for Target Pillow giveaway. Rules, etc. are at that post, and I am really excited to give one of you fine, fine individuals this great little piece of home decor. :)
2. There is another fantastic giveaway over at She Hath Done What She Could for an Anthropologie Apron. I am HUGE fan of the aprons at Anthropologie, so I think you all should enter! Plus what a great and fun blog Peggy has...
Okay! Before you get revved up for my IRL photos, go on over to Gigi's Gone Shopping where she not only has IRL photos of many of the Liberty of London for Target items, but she also has an EXHAUSTIVE list (how does she find the time???) of everyone else's posts. Trust me, if you want to see something from this line, you will find it amongst one of our blogs. :)
First up is my favorite print from this line, the Isis print. This is the Liberty of London for Target® Halter Maxi Dress -Turquoise Isis Print and although it is sold-out on-line, you may be able to find it in a store, or at (gulp) ebay (for let's hope a reasonable price). I am wearing a size 6 and I sized it specifically for my bust. I could have tried the 4, but I loved the way the 6 feels, so no second thoughts here. I am wearing the halter on its tightest button, though, and that helps a lot. If it only had the one button, it would have been too loose. So good thinking, and a nice detail for the price.
I am 5'8" and with flats this is the EXACT right length on me. I have an inseam of 34 inches and my outseam (from my very high waist) is 42". I think if you are under 5'6" or have shorter legs, look into the petite option, which yay for you all, is not sold-out! :)
Here is the dress from the side. I LOVE this dress. Pool party anyone with mojitos? Yum. No glasses, though, and definitely a different pair of sandals.
Ah, yes, the insanely popular Liberty of London for Target® Sateen Shift Dress - Yellow Dunclare Print, which is sold-out in all sizes, but not in petites (!!!).
I am wearing a size 6, and it fits just where it should, hips, bust, waist, all great. Zipper is sticky, but I still managed to get it up by myself, but I love Gigiofca's idea of using wax paper to help things along.
And, yes, CW appears to be doing a jig. I tell ya, these kids of mine are something else. LOL.
From the side. A little pooch-pooch, but that is a combo of extra fabric and the angle I am holding the camera. No biggie! :)
Love the fabric, by the way. It is one of the only items in the women's line that is cotton...a very heavy cotton sateen that has a bit of give and seems to repel wrinkles (unlike some of J. Crew's cotton sateen).
And, finally, the Girls' Liberty of London for Target® Sleeveless Woven Dress - Light Pink, you read that right, this is a GIRLS dress. Size X-Large and the fit is insanely good. The bust does up just so (I am a 32 B/C), and the empire waist is exactly where it needs to be (I have a measurement of 30" where this seam hits). The hips are free, so wahoo! :)
It is cotton, lined, and the straps are plaited. Crazy, lovely details for the low, low price of $18. Some of you all may be able to wear a L or even a M! (Wow!)
It HAS POCKETS. 'Nuff said. Liberty of London for Target, you rock my world. :)
Have a nice day. Talk soon.
