Rompers: My Love/ Hate Relationship

Hey guys! Hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekend so far. Last night I attended my sister’s boyfriend’s graduation party to which I FINALLY wore this Peter Pilotto x Target Iris print romper. Yes, I know, I went ham on this collection, but can you blame me? The geometric floral print of this romper (same print you saw on this dress) is striking and very much in with this seasons bold, modern floral print trend!

As irresistible as this little romper is, it’s a romper none the less and even though this was the first romper I’ve worn that correctly fit and flattered my body, once the wheels (legs) started turning (walking) I was quickly reminded of why I NEVER wear rompers.  See, I suffer from “hungry thighs” it’s a syndrome prominent in Latina women in which the inner thighs devour and store any fragment of clothing they come in contact with. You ladies know what I’m talking about.  That uncomfortable bunching of the shorts in between your butt and thighs that creates the need to stop, squat and pick in the most always unavoidable (non)nonchalant manner.

Knowing this would inevitably happen, I chose the right type of event to don this pretty little thing. A celebratory gathering with chatting, dining and dancing, i.e. minimal walking and mandatory squatting (dancing), yes, this is Miami, squatting is mandatory on the dance floor.

Rompers are absolutely adorable, sexy and versatile for Miami’s scorching hot weather. I really wish I could wear more of them, but for now, my heart is content! I tried something new! Yippeeee!

Thanks for stopping by! HAPPY SUNDAY!

The Holy Grail

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! With a wedding and very special surprise birthday party to attend, this past Saturday proved the perfect day to debut the dress I consider the “Holy Grail” of the Peter Pilotto x Target Collection. The Jacquard Dress in Red Iris Print was the single most coveted piece of the collection, and at 3:00 a.m. on February 9, 2014, when I placed this dress in my shopping cart on Net-A-Porter.com, it took every fiber of my being to stop myself from screaming excitedly up and down the halls of my apartment building like a lunatic!

Just a few short hours later, this beauty was being resold on e-Bay for up to three times its original price of $79.99. I’m not going to lie, had I failed to purchase it directly from Target or Net-A-Porter for its original price, I would have paid double and would not have regret it for a second.

From the eye popping colors; genius geo-floral print; rich textured fabric; playful, pleated, tulle enhanced skirt; and fabulous bodice top. This dress is the most exquisite item to come out of any Target designer collaboration to date!

I went for an ultra playful and colorful spring look by adding blue (faux) suede shoes from Shoedazzle, a light blue clutch from Ann Taylor Loft and minimal accessories.

I wish you all a productive and joyful week!

xoxo
