In the dressing room – Target

November 10, 2014


First up, please excuse my eexhausted face and bad hair. I spent all weekend in bed not being able to keep anything down! I’m also in the process of trying to find a hairdresser in Melbourne that won’t charge a fortune to do my hair. If you know anyone, let me know! Anyway, I had to duck out to get some groceries and had a quick look in Target. Two dresses caught my eye and I just had to try them on!

First up, this gorgeous ORANGE draped front dress, the colour was so beautiful! I was a little unsure of what the fabric would be like on, its very light and I thought you may have had to wear a slip underneath. When I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised that you couldn’t see any of my underwear underneath, which was dark, it was super comfy and breezy. This was the size 20, and it fitted me perfectly. It was also available in black.


Second was a structured white and black patterned strapless dress. Another one that jumped out at me. Sadly, it looked totally different on me, then it did on the hanger. I’m not sure if it was because of my body shape or if this particular dress was faulty. When I got it on, it really ballooned out at the pockets, and looking at the way it was sewn at the side, it felt like it was sewn wrong. I’m not sure. It was such a beautiful dress, if only the sides/pockets didn’t sit the way it did. It would have been okay if you walked around with your hands in your pockets all the time! Again, this was the size 20.


What do you think?

  • That’s such a pity about that white dress (isn’t that annoying?! I’ve had that happen to me, too!), because the print is so lovely and it’s a great length! I *love* the tangerine number for its colour, too, but anything with a high neckline looks pretty terrible on me personally, so I tend to stay away.

  • I kind of like the weird shape thing the white dress is doing at the pockets – it’s very Comme des Gar癟ons. Anyway my cheap hairdressing tip in Melbourne is Biba Academy. They have two locations – the city and also Fitzroy. Haircuts are $25 (or cheaper if you see a promotion on their fb page) and colours aren’t pricey either. Biba’s main salons win hairdresser of the year awards all the time, and the students are trained by the very best. It takes a little bit longer than a regular salon but is so worth it for the price and quality of cut I think.

  • I actually totally love the shape that second dress has!! It’s a wee bit avant garde with the exaggerated hips! I think it looks fab on you, I’d buy that in a heartbeat!


  • Orange is a good colour on you, though I’m not so keen on the shape. Pity about the floral one because it looks so good in the promo shots, but an entirely different dress in real life. I guess the pocket thing is kinda cool if that’s what you’re looking for, but it does look a bit like you’ve turned the pockets outside in! I love ‘dressing room’ posts like this, don’t know why they excite me more than seeing someone in an outfit anywhere else!

    You should check out Wildilocks in North Melbourne (on Victoria St just up from the market)! They’re an alternative-y salon and the only people I trust to bleach my hair. They also do special effects colours cheap as well. Defs worth checking out!

    That orange dress is so gorgeous. I love orange but it makes me look washed out, but it suits you beautifully.
    And what’s with the pocket-region on the strapless dress? I’m pretty sure you picked up a dud there. Something definitely looks wrong!
