I Have to Return at Least 2 of These. Guilt. Which 2?

Forces conspired today.
It hit 60 degrees.
We leave for Miami in 3 weeks.
The Target designer greatest hits collection arrived in stores.
All this reminded me of how great summer is, and, in particular, how great wearing summer dresses is. So I went to Target, and I went a little crazy. Yes. I bought A LOT of $40 dresses. Let me show you.
This collection hit stores right as Michelle Obama was wearing a lot of his designs, and this dress in particular sold out before I even had a chance to glance at the whole line online, and it never reappeared in stores.
Plus: It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous mix of prints, and so on par with Thakoon’s regular-level dresses.
Minus: It’s definitely going to be dry clean only. Like hell I’ll have the patience to iron all those pleats.
This line was released before I had any idea that Target was even doing these designer collaborations. Every time I’ve seen it in magazine layouts ever since, I’ve been bummed that I didn’t get it. This dress was the first one I grabbed today.
Plus: Everything here is a plus. Love the colors. Love the print. Love the navy ribbing.
Minus: It’s just the SLIGHTEST bit too big on me up top, and it isn’t something that can be tailored. So, I have decided to get breast implants. Yay!
Model Observation: I hate how she’s standing. And I hate how this was styled with black sandals. All wrong.
This one sold out before I could get to it online, or in stores. It’s such a classic Tucker print. Truly a must-have.
Minus: I had to order this one online because it was sold out in stores. So, waiting. Boo!!
Model Observation: Sassypants stance!
I bought this exact dress in a different print when it was in stores — it’s a blue print with red flowers. I love it, and have gotten SO much wear out of it, it’s totally worth adding a second version of it to my closet.
Plus: I love the black and the big floral print — it’s so different than the blue one I already have.
Minus: Tucker sizing runs small. I don’t particularly appreciate the size I had to buy this one in to get a good fit.
This dress could not possibly be LESS Meredith. First of all, it’s white. Second, it’s fluttery. Very Stevie Nicks. The sleeves are gauzy and sheer. SO NOT ME. That said … I fell in love with it.
Plus: So perfect for drinks poolside at the Shore Club that I just couldn’t resist.
Minus: Super short. I hope everyone at the Shore Club enjoys seeing my ass.
