[I want it, I need it, I can’t live without it. There are so many things on store shelves and racks right now that we want to take home and hang in our closets. Things that are so cute, everyone should know about them. We’ll share ‘em with you here (because we’re that nice), but as far as actually getting them goes….well, you’re on your own with that one.]
I have a shocking confession to make: the dress before you is a maternity dress. And while I fully realize that this is a maternity dress and that’s kind of weird, there is no denying that it is adorable. A super-fit, super-skinny blonde that I know showed up to work wearing this dress and I swear I thought she bought it at Nordstrom. You can imagine my surprise then, while perusing the Target aisles for toothpaste, shampoo, and fake Hanky Pankys, I saw this dress in the Liz Lange Maternity section. Total WTF moment. Skinny girl from work is definitely not pregnant, but was also, definitely wearing this dress. So that got me thinking–if she can do it and look adorable, why can’t we? Who’s going to know?
Let’s be honest–the majority of the stuff Liz Lange makes for target is way cuter than the Converse One Star stuff that they’re selling to people our age. I want cute, cheap clothes too, Target! And I don’t mean the hit-or-miss Go International collection.
Seriously though, if it fits and it’s cute, who’s going to know (or care) that it’s maternity if you’re not pregnant? I never would have expected that this dress was pregnancy-wear, until I saw it with my very own eyes in that section, along with other adorable outfits that almost made me wish I was knocked up. Almost. The Liz Lange maxi-dress features an adorable grey V-neck with braided straps, and an ombre turquoize/teal bottom. The dress is super flattering, as it was created to skim over a baby bump, and the maxi trend is still hot for summer. Plus, you can buy an XS instead of an M! What? Just me? I promise it looks a lot cuter on someone who isn’t pregnant.
I don’t know about you girls, but I’d go maternity for this dress. I’m gonna swing by Targét Boutique and pick one up. It can be our little secret!
