Tucker for Target

Tucker for Target dress, Rag & Bone wedges, Giorgio Armani sunglasses, Banana Republic broach, Michael Kors watch, Forever 21 clutch






I originally heard about the Tucker/Target collaboration from Carrie (the Tucker expert) and didn't think much of it. I've seen numerous other designer collaborations that left much to be desired and didn't have any expectations that Tucker would be any different. But it was. As I cruised up and down the aisles of Target, I was shocked and impressed with the quality, shape, fit, and prints of all the Tucker pieces. What was most impressive (and different from other collaborations) was that the pieces were wearable, current, and almost identical (with the exception of the fabric) to the actual Tucker pieces. I was completely satisfied when I picked up this Mrs. Roper-esque dress and wore it one of the warm Indian summer nights we had recently. I'm already looking forward to wearing it with tights and boots when the weather cools down again.

This is so cute! I actually bought two Tucker for Target dresses and am returning them both... I don't like the material and they wrinkle too easily for me! But yours looks great!

Jessica said...

i think that print/dress is absolutely sweet.

Torrie said...

"Mrs. Roper-esque"... You're funny:).

That's a beautiful dress and color on you - and you got the wavy thing goin' on again (still need a tutorial on that!!:).

Marcie said...

Stunning outfit! I absolutely love the color and how this design flows. It looks comfortable too. I know what you mean about collaborations. They usually are disappointing (Zac Posen for example), but I am dying to try a few of these pieces. Target pulls through again!

PS- Perfect match for the shoes.
