Tucker for Target Button-Front Dress in XS ($34.99)
What I am wearing:
Dress: Tucker for Target in XS (buy it here)
Boots: Aldo (similar here)
Necklace: Lia Sophia - Fancy that necklace (buy it here)
Sizing: I would say even with the smallest size (which is XS), they are still big for petites. I probably tried on 10 pieces in XS and this dress is the only piece that actually fits me well. Some of them were OK and some of them were definitely huge for XS.
Close up of the dress
Material: Pretty much the entire collection made out of 100% polyester. None of the pieces are lined. I guess I kinda knew this when the collection first launched on Gilt.com
Cost: The collection which includes tops, bottoms, dresses and coats. Range in price from $19.99 to $79.99. I didn’t see any outerwear in stores today. I guess that’s not too bad considering a dress from Tucker Collection is selling for almost $500 at shopbob.com
Style: They're OK. For all pieces I have tried on, there wasn’t a piece that I have to have. I do love the bold prints and interesting patterns. Those prints are very unique. I was looking forward to this collection because that’s what I am missing in my closet – bold print and colorful pieces
Verdict: I'll keep this dress since it fits me nicely.
I also brought Tucker for Target® Halter Top in Floral Print home to try with a skirt but it didn’t work. It is pretty long on me when not tucked in. It is also big on me. Therefore, the back couldn’t stay up very well. Although I love the print, I don’t think this top is wearable for me
I tried Tucker for Target® Tunic Dress in Orange on at store and it was big on me. I brought it home anyway to try with a belt but it didn't work, either. It was too big on me. It would be a nice piece to have for Fall. I didn't even take any pictures.
I am a little bit disappointed by this line (especially the sizing). For those of you who are interested in, I suggest you try them on at the store first to get the feel of the material and sizing then order online to take advantage of the $5.00 (use code LBCLM468). This collection will be available through October 17, 2010
What do you guys think? Would you try it?
