Dress : Target (Xhilaration Summer ‘11) $19.99

Cardigan : Target (Mossimo Fall ‘10) $10?

Wedges : Target (Xhilaration Spring ‘07) $ inflation-makes-it-irrelevant

Purse : Nine West (TJ Maxx Spring ‘09?) <$20 because that’s my TJ price limit

Instructions for a Sarah-Soon-To-Be-inspired look :

Go back in time at least eight years.  Enter your local Target store.  Collect random items you think you “TOTALLY need” or “could wear with _____ outfit” off the clearance racks.  Repeat quarterly, at the least.  Wear a few items until threadbare, leave tags on a few, and forget you ever bought the others.

(Fast forward to the present)

Impulsively buy a bright, colorful sundress you’d normally never be drawn to.  Leave it in the bag for a week after you come to your neutral&boring fashion senses.  Be too lazy to go across the street to return it.

Notice the ratty purple cardigan you discarded into the heap of clean-but-worn clothes on the floor next to said Target bag matches crazy-Sarah’s fun dress perfectly.  Have an “aha” shoe moment about those red wedges you’ve been meaning to donate for years.

Pair with your buttery yellow cross-body bag – mainly because it gives you full function of both hands and therefor maximum beer-consumption efficiency, but also because hey!  it matches! 

Note that you probably cashed in some karma points on this outfit magic.  Be ok with that.

  1. The outfit looks cute because YOU look cute in it. Thanks for making me laugh. You and SR are my only definite “go-to” blogs — you are both a hoot (and cute) – I’m a poet and I don’t know it.

  2. So apparently I’m a lush and when I hear time traveling, I assume it means blacking out. I kept reading your post for the black out story. Wow, sorry. Cute outfit though! :)

  3. Love it! Totally bought that dress (in a different color scheme) a few weeks ago. Now I’m pissed that it’s on sale…ugh! Oh well. I think I’m going to wear it to a wedding this weekend, too bad it won’t look near as good on me as it does you!
