Fairy Tales Are True...

Once upon a time, the Spring 2008 collections came out and Rodarte sent tulle dresses floating down the runway. A little while before that there was an epic film starring Faye Dunaway that swept all who watched into a golden world of crime and passion. While the style of the latter could be imitated, clothes of the former were sadly out of reach...and then came Target. An unconventional fairy godmother to be certain, but the type of modern benefactress girls on a budget depend upon.

For this particular little cinder-girl, Chictopia also played a role. It seems that some fashion fairy tales can come true...I'll keep my fingers crossed for those spiked Christian Louboutins for Rodarte.

  26. I just saw the Rodarte for Target collection the other day - I love it! There is one dress in particular - it's similar to yours, but it's light blue. I'm in love with it. I just may have to use my Christmas money, but I do so want a pro-Flickr account as well! Oh the troubles of deciding. :(

    Anyway, I'm procrastinating on my writing, which I really do need to start. Before I leave, however, I wanted to thank you for the comment you left on my blog. I always enjoy getting comments!

    Have a good day!

  31. Seeing you wear that dress in nude is making me wonder if I should have gotten it in nude instead of black?!

    Oh well, I got a couple of pieces from the Rodarte for Target collection and I'm pretty excited to wear them soon! Just trying to think of ways to wear them and stay warm.. its like 20 degrees in Chicago right now!

  53. i think calivintage has this dress, too, but in black -- equally stunning as yours.

    you look like a princess -- very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Okay, yes. This is exactly what I was trying to describe to my husband- I love the Rodarte collection for Target, but on someone else. I tried the pieces on myself and I just couldn't get them to jive. But on you? Perfection. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Stunning dress! You look so pretty.

  56. you are a glorious wood nymph in that dress. I too am kind of in a state of bliss that two rodarte pieces are hanging in my closet...

  57. I got the black one. I think I might take off the bows on the shoulders though, they look a bit wonky on me. I'm thinking of putting snaps on them so I can reattach them whenever I want. The nude color looks wonderful on you! Very fairylike indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lovely pictures and lovely dress!! I love your fun headband too! xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  76. you make this dress look so darling! I saw the dresses Thursday while at Target and I just did not have the money to get one. I am hoping, however to sneak back in for one this week with some of the Xmas money I got.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh you look absolutely adorable. I have the black lace halter dress and I just love it! Your headband is beautiful too.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm glad that dress worked on you, because it looked pretty awful on me. I like how you're pairing it with the crown headband. These photos definitely do look out of a fairytale.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Pretty as always dear =)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh, this dress looks so perfect for you and in this color, especially. I went with the black Rodarte slip dress just 'cause it's a safe color for me and although I thought the nude color was great, I didn't think I could pull it off! You, however, look lovely. Hope you had a good holiday!

  88. Oh -- what a great reminder. The holiday craziness has left me avoiding stores, but I do want to get into Target and see what's left of the Rodarte pieces. Your photos remind me of the fairy tale theme from Vogue's Sept issue that Grace Coddington art directed.
