20 Years Old & Still Playing Dress-up

I'm twenty years old today. I guess I have to remove the "musings of a teenage fashion blogger" bit from my header.


The other day I was doing some last minute Hannukah shopping at Target when, lo and behold, the Rodarte collection was already on the racks! I didn't have much time and I was supposed to be shopping for other people, but I managed to snag a skirt. I think it's quite beautiful. Clearly lingerie-inspired, and the way the tulle hangs over it is raggedly floaty enough at the hem to give off that Rodarte vibe. A pleasant surprise!


I also tried on the coral-colored slip dress, which I thought was fantastically gorgeous, but alas it is meant for someone with a smaller chest. The lace-print dress was nice, just not very Rodarte-ish nor especially flattering in fit. The lace cardigan was pretty, if you can deal with the fact that it's scratchy. As for the stuff I didn't try on, I'm kicking myself for leaving behind the yellow skirt, the legwear was not present, and nothing else really did it for me. And that's my take on the whole thing. Still, I liked the collection a lot more than past designer collections for Target, and I really love my new skirt.

God, I can't believe I'm done being a teenager. It's about time.

that is such a beautiful skirt. did you happen to see the black slip lace dress? i would love to have that dress in my closet, but i hardly ever go to target.

I positively adore that skirt! I think I'm going back to try on that slip dress..kind of ran out of time today, unfortunately. And the dress I was most excited to try on, the blue swiss dot dress, was no where to be found! Must order online. Now.

Happy New Year!

I stumbled across your blog looking for a pixie haircut... just wanted to say that I really like your blog. A lot of fashion blogs seem to be imitating each other, mimicking the saccharine, vacuous (often condescending) way of talking about fashion, but I just wanted to say that I like how distinct, accessible and intelligent your writing voice is. Its refreshing and charming.

Nice outfit!

You are very cute in those pics. Happy 20 and welcome to the "melancholy 20's"...

Webmistress said...

Love the outfit and there is nothing wrong with playing dressup at any age, we have to look our best when out and about...so trying on a dozen different looks is much needed. Style changes constantly so you have to keep up.
Great blog by the way, you will have to come check us out too - dont forget to leave a comment.
