i walked into target the other day for a vacuum. on the way to the checkout line i chanced upon the rodarte for target collection. i never hop on the capsule collection bandwagon; it just feels stressful to try and get your hands on something so many people want, and many times in the past i’ve been disappointed with the lack of “design”. but i took a close look anyway. i would never think to purchase this leopard dress just judging by the photo. and i feel like one leopard thing in a wardrobe is quite enough, but the lace fabrication intrigued me and i tried it on for fun. once i slipped it on i realized no other dress would fit me in the amazing way this one did, and i pulled a switcheroo, promptly reshelving the vacuum.
i wore it later that night and sparked jealousy in the eyes of many beholders. well, maybe it didn’t, but it’s a dress that feels that good! sparkly dresses everywhere were wondering why they aren’t leopard and lace. and the quality of the design and fit (as well as that of the other pieces from the collection) is undeniably exquisite. ladies rodarte, why do you do this to me! i mean, thank you!
on another note i will be interviewing garance dore tomorrow! i’ll see if i can squeeze in some questions about her lover, the sartorialist.
