When the Zac Posen collection for Target was first announced, there was a gorgeous pink dress, and all the magazines featured it. It was perfect. Floaty and flattering and just a bit edgy. I wanted that dress. I ripped the picture out and kept it in my wallet. I would lie in bed and think about that dress. And as luck would have it, I got that dress.
We happened to be visiting friends in Austen the day the collection debuted, and I asked if anyone minded stopping in the Target on the way home from brunch. When we got there, not only did they have most of the collection, already on display and ready for sale, but NO ONE was shopping it! In Dallas, I often have to go to multiple Targets to get a dress the day a designer collection debuts, and due to their popularity, even if I get there right when the store opens, it’s not a sure thing, so having the entire collection to quietly shop at my own pace was just magical.
I tried on several things. There was a navy blue dress with snaps that made my boobs look like works of art, honest. It was amazing. But not very practical. Mr. Posen really knows how to make a girl look great. But money is tight, and I can’t afford to get everything I want. Oh, cruel life!
But not really. Because I did get that gorgeous pink dress. I’m not sure why it took me so long to wear it. I took it off the rack and admired it often. But I never wore it. I think it might be a case of loving it too much. I was almost nervous to wear it, worried I might get something on it, or snag the skirt. But I didn’t. And I felt SO PRETTY. (Even though not a single person at the office commented on the fact that I was wearing the prettiest day dress ever made. The nerve! It’s OK, I totally called them out on it.
P.S. The day I wore the dress? The kids on MTVs “The City” went to the Zac Posen for Target launch party on the show!
