Adrien: Missoni This.

I didn't buy a single thing from the Target Missoni collection. Not one thing, and I generally like Missoni! Something about the frenzy of it just turned me right off. I decided to wait and then when it sold out instantly decided maybe I just didn't need any of it that badly. I'm glad I waited, because I like this Missoni-inspired dress I found at Ross a lot better than any of the Target collection. Seriously, Ross, y'all:



My only complain is that the cute sleeves are hard to stuff into a cardigan:


Yup, always got to ruin shit up with a lumpy cardigan. (It is cold! I will freeze!)



dress: Nine West (similar)
cardigan: Banana Republic (similar)
boots: Frye Veronica
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar)

PS. I've got a few bags up for sale in the shop...

  2. Now this is adorable! I personally can't stand Missoni but this dress looks really well-made and the zig zags are a perfect dose. It looks great on you!

  3. I totally understand about the cardigan thing. I base most of my shirt purchases by thier cardigan compatibility. My office is ALWAYS cold.

    I absolutly LOVE this dress.

  4. That is cute! I totally need to check out Ross. There's practically one on every block here, and yet I've never even been in one.

  5. That is a really cute dress, and MUCH better than anything I saw from the Target collection. You have a great eye.

  6. I should be honest and say that, while I thought it was cute on the rack, I didn't think it would be flattering on me. Nina pushed me to try it on and I'm glad I did! See? Never hurts to try something on.

  7. I bought a jumper from the Missoni for Target collection (and a scarf) (and some pint-sized jumpers for my daughter) but I haven't worn it yet. You have inspired me to bust it out.

  8. You look so cute! I love that bag. I am dying for something elderberry and kicking myself for selling my turnlock quinn a few years back.

  9. Hey, that's a really nice dress and I love the boots. Unfortunately I can't pull off a dress like that myself.

  10. I kind of hated the Missoni for Target stuff, but this dress is so cute! This is what they should have designed.

  11. I love it! I got some fake Missoni towels from TJ Maxx a few years ago and I will use them until they are rags. Yay for wannabe Missoni.

  13. Love the dress. So who makes it?
    And yeah, the cardigan has to go. It ruins the dress. You gotta freeze instead.
