Reason #6,471, 962,012

...that I love Target, summer and being a girl, (and still not in that order).

Posted by Picasa

I'm loving dresses these days (this is an Isaac Mizrahi if you're wondering, I have no issue label-dropping Target Couture), especially when I find the last one in stock, on crazy sale, and it's in my size. (I'd link to Target, but being such a darling dress and on clearance, it's been wiped off their web site.)

I loved the dress all day, and got a ton of compliments. And then someone asked if I was pregnant.

That part I do not love about being a girl --a big iced tea and suddenly I'm expecting? Women with children should have the decency never to assume.

I almost bought that same dress! I can only clothes shop where my kids can fit into a shopping cart. I find that very limiting!

I had to stop buying clothes (for myself) at Costco, but Target still works - where else can you find such a cute dress and get dog food and kid's birthday gifts in the same trip?

Darlin, I've been eyeing that dress. And I have to say, that dress looks a hell of a lot better on you than it ever would have looked on me.

I'm off to target today, and now I'm excited about it!

you so do not look pregnant in that dress -- which I saw and coveted JUST TODAY at Target. Instead, I got a madras tube top from the Loft (on sale) and indeed, I DO look pregnant.

I would never have thought you were pregnant in that dress!

And, I'm with you. There's something soothing about buying your socks, DVD's, and deodorant in the same store.

That is ADORABLE! I love dresses, too and Summer AND Isaac Mizrahi and of course Tarjay. What I don't love is idiots who ask those questions. jeeeeeez. um, please don't ask until it's incredibly obvious people. AND you SOOOOOO don't look pregnant girl. I'd kill for your trim figure!!!!

Oooh I wanted that dress but just couldn't squeeze into it. Looks super delicious on you though!

Girls, you are so very kind.

Ellie says I look like Alice in Wonderland in the dress, one of the most sincere compliments to come out of the mouth of a 3 (and a HALF) year old girl's mouth!

OMGosh, me thinks some people should think before they speak...
from your pic, you look fit, and only an idiot would even ask that question...
but the, there's one in EVERY crowd!!!

WTF? Did you punch the person in the face? That is my WORST NIGHTMARE....as my weight tends to carry in my midsection!

I think you look fabulous!

What's with disappearing dresses at Target? My wife had me trying to help her call around to find some mysterious dress she fell in love with in an Oprah magazine or something, and she was never able to find it having ever existed online or in stores.
