Target Dress

Ashley Target DressI wouldn’t normally get excited about a simple dress from Target. But…it’s from TARGET! For the past dozen or so years, I have only been able to buy clothing at Catherine’s. Now, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with their clothes per se. They have good quality and a nice staff but the selection at times is a bit more frumpy and “preschool teacher”–hardly “hot mamma.” Very rarely can I honestly say that the piece I’m buying is truly something I like if I had more options.

Yes, the dress is from the large-sized section of Target, but it’s the first time I have been able to wear something that didn’t come from Catherine’s for longer than I can remember. More clothing options, here I come!

      Ashley, I totally know where you are coming from…and consider this….Target’s plus sizes tend to run on the small side, so there you go…your NSV is doubly great!! You totally set the bar and keep me inspired..Yay you!!

      • Thanks Liz! You have a point they do run smaller. :) Most stores do unless they cater exclusively to plus size woman. I hadn’t thought about that.

    • Thanks Debbie! I can’t wait to be able to wear some of the active line clothing out there like REI and Eddie Bauer. And on the other end the really nice ones from Ann Taylor etc.

  2. You look beautiful in that dress! Awesome NSV!
