Stella McCartney for Target Part II

January 24, 2011

And after a brief pause, here is the second half of my haul from Target Australia. Part I is here.

I had initially overlooked this Silk Gathered Dress in black (I have too many LBDs) but Megan picked it up for me after she saw it in person. I love it as well and the gathered details at the bust is gorgeous. 

Next up is this lace top which I believe is the bestseller from this collection. It runs even smaller than other pieces from this collection and if I had known about the fit I would've sized up. But it was nothing short of a miracle that Megan was able to find it in a small size and in my preferred color (white) on sale. 
Talbots has a lace top for Spring 2011 that looks incredibly similar to this Stella McCartney for Target one. Here are pictures from the promo campaign. (The winter lace top in black is now on sale, see it on Cee here)

Lastly, I got the Tulip Skirts (seen with the lace top above) in white and french blue. I think of all the pieces that Megan picked up for me, I was least impressed by these skirts. But it's my own fault that I ended up with two of them. Megan had warned me that the skirts aren't flattering and might make me look bigger around the hip. But the waist fits really nicely and I am sure I'll find a way to wear them in the Spring.

  1. I do think the skirts will sit better and drape more nicely once you steam the wrinkles out (especially the crease down the front). I have pretty curvy hips and the tulipe style made me look even curvier and my tush look big!

    It's interesting that the skirt looks shiny in your pics- it didn't seem at all shiny to me in person?

  2. elle i am in love with that lace top! its absolutely gorgeous on you. i want one now! lol

  3. Thanks for these reviews! I actually have my eye on that Talbots top - how come they don't pull an Ann Taylor and do 20-40% off new arrivals?!

  4. @Lisa - respect the shoes Talbots go on sale pretty quickly actually if you are willing to wait! :) I bet it'll be at least half off in a few weeks. :)

    @Ping the good thing about a lace basic is that everyone has a similar one! :) I'll let you know if I find any on sale! :)

    @Megz haha I am so lazy, I meant to steam the wrinkles out but just couldn't find enough strength to do it after work.

  5. I like the bust of the LBD too, but from the picture, I'm iffy about the bottom.

    A while ago, Charlotte Russe and F21 had this particular white lace top that was spotted on lots of (non-petite) bloggers. I should have hunted it down, b/c now seeing this one on you, I'm in love w/a white lace top even more.

    mb Megz is right. just iron out the skirt and see the fit afterwards.

    Wow what a great line! why didn't they release it here in the US of A?!!

  6. Aiya! I thought the part 1 reveal was amazing, but this blows that out of the water! Love, love, love the gathered dress and lace tops on you. It fits and looks so much better than Talbots, imo.
