Rodarte x Target ... New Year's Outfit

Happy New Year!!! Very belated New Year's (Day) outfit post. At what point do you stop saying Happy New Year to people?

Idk if you can tell but I'm doing "2-0-1-0" in the first 4 pics. And I love this headband to death.








The 3 bows on the back of the dress got torn off by accident :( Overall the material is sticky, plastic-feeling, and inflexible, not to mention a very poor fit, but I'm a sucker for anything leopard and don't you just love mini dresses with long sleeves? It's all about legs not cleavage.

Huge oversized bow hair pieces are just killing me too. I wore this huge red hairbow around Christmas, but need more, seriously. Also, in my Spring 2010 trend report, I posted about huge hair bows at Milly, Erin Fetherston, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Betsey Johnson.

leopard dress: Rodarte x Target
silver boots: Forever 21
bow headband: Forever 21
rings: random assortment




P.S. How do people do those really awesome hair toss pictures?!?!?

P.S.S. More obnoxious hair bows. Crave.

  13. haha, yesss BOWS!

    and i totally agree with the legs vs. cleavage thing. all about the legs (and we can get away with it because it's usually hot outside anyway. except now. stupid rain).

  24. Hmm, they seem to be very versatile. Can be combined into more hatlike objects (asos; loove it!) or even worn in the bedroom (hottt)

  32. That dress is lovely. I tried it on and almost bought it but I figured I wouldn't wear it much, hence it wasn't a good investment.

    I love your bow, very big, but you pull it off nicely.

  33. Happy New Year, girl. (I usually stop saying it after, well January 1st, but this is refreshing.)

    You look great and that giant bow makes your outfit. You can't go wrong with a giant bow! They're the perfect ounce of adorable-ness!
