Jean Paul Gaultier for Target
I am a huge fan of Target. I can literally spend hours browsing the aisles of Target; especially since they added a huge food section to the store. Today, however, my trip focused on checking out the new Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection. Unsurprisingly, like past designer collaborations, it was "comme ci, comme ca." The fabrics, for the most part, felt cheap and looked cheap. Take the following dress ($59.99) as an example.
It's a cute dress in the picture but when you feel the fabric, it feels like those cheapie vinyl picnic table covers my parents used to use when I was a kid. Plus, you need to be tall for this dress. I tried it on and I almost disappeared. There is a built-in petticoat underneath the skirt and when you put the dress on, the skirt just poofs out. I felt like an upside down yellow tulip.
This disco-era top ($24.99) looked cute but again the fabric was an issue. This top's fabric screamed shiny polyester.
I'm not a fan of prints/stripes/dots/patterns (and yes, I'm rather vocal about it), but this flower-pattern dress ($49.99) looked spring-chic when I tried it on. And it had pockets! I adore pockets! But wearing it would entail me not drinking, eating or sitting. Three activities which I'm quite fond of. Again, the fabric was also an issue. It was thin and pocket/belly area tended to poof out.
