More Rodarte for Target in my grubby paws

The much awaited parcel from Target arrived today! I tried on both the black bow slip dress with tulle and the black lace cardigan but am not entirely sure if I am keeping either. I am a little bogged down with things right now and there's still packing to be done as I am going back to Motherland for vacation tomorrow. So, no pics for now but will update once pics are taken!

Rodarte for Target hits the stores and online

The much anticipated Rodarte for Target collection officially hits the stores and online today! I tried to stay awake and be one of the eager beavers to get first dibs, but my eyes would have none of that. I however did wake up early enough about 8am or so and was able to purchase the items that I want.

I mainly only wanted the black bow lace slip with tulle dress but since I am a scrooge and did not want to pay for shipping, I ordered the black lace cardigan as well. I ordered both in a size Small and am hoping that the dress would fit and be more flattering on me than its nude counterpart.

As for the lace cardigan, I don't think I will be keeping it but we shall see. Estimated delivery date is December 24, which means I get to see it before I leave for motherland! Wheee! Heh.

Rodarte for Target dresses in my possession

After much anticipation of the Rodarte for Target collection, I went to pick up the two dresses that were available at the Target Pop-up Store here in Georgetown this morning. Sad to say, I will be returning both the dresses. I love the lace bow slip shift with tulle dress but the color makes the details too glaring emphasizing how flat I am on the bust. Hah! As for the black lace halter dress, its so pretty and this is my favorite type of halter but I feel the waist hangs a tad high for me. I am still pondering about it for now. Below are pics:

Wanna chime in and help me decide on the black lace halter, pretty pls?

Rodarte for Target available in Target Pop-up Store!

Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Target Corp., the retailer expanding in U.S. cities, opened so-called pop-up stores in three urban centers to generate holiday-season sales and publicity.

The second-biggest U.S. discount chain is running Target To-Gos in New York, San Francisco and Washington today through Dec. 13. The temporary stores offer 50 products, including 99- cent Christmas tree ornaments, Sony Corp.’s PSP Go handheld video-game player for $249.99 and pieces from Target’s Rodarte fashion line that won’t be available nationwide until Dec. 20.

The following two dresses will be available in the pop-up store so I'm eager to pick them up this weekend!
