Proenza Schouler @ Target

this is a close-up of the silk dress i got yesterday at target. that's right 100% silk and an intense, beautiful color too. it is proenza schouler (for target, that is). not only it is gorgeous in color, i think it looks good with my hair and my skin. i am growing to like the pairing of orange (again my hair, a notebook, a golden retriever) and jewel tones (a la this dress).

above photo is fuzzy on purpose, but here's a better look at the dress.

as everyone says, target is really changing retail - i think they are one of the only chains growing their apparel business due to partnerships with small designers like Proenza Schouler, Behnaz Sarafpour, Paul & Joe. they are onto something here. Also, if they are GROWING b/c of sales of well and creatively designed clothes from independent designers - then it must mean the American public is interested in this sort of design. whether we all knew we (coast dwellers and middle of the country folks alike i imagine) were interested in it to begin with or not.

now of course my dress will probably fall apart after one wearing, but i have plenty of fancier, less well designed dresses, that I've worn only once. i look forward to seeing target's next partners.
