Liberty of London for Target Reviews!

So I was completely thrilled to hear that Liberty of London was collaborating with Target, and also completely bummed at the same time. Why? Because of course a collaboration I actually like comes out when I am not conveniently located nearby a Target (or two). Luckily I snagged a few items from the website and am on the whole very pleased with them.

This is the dress that caught my eye in the television promos. This pinky/red color scheme is not one I go for often, but I thought it would be refreshing for spring. This halter dress is perfect for spring/summer! I think it looks great on its own or layered with one of my many cardigans. It is easily adjustable thanks to the halter neck tie and the tie around the middle that you can cinch. I just feel very feminine in this dress! I've paired this dress with the Wakana Wedge Sandal from Target, which only set me back around $10 thanks to their BOGO shoe deal. I can see myself wearing this to a summer bbq, a beachside bar, or just running errands around town. 

This dress is the same style as the previous dress but I think it has a slightly more unique vibe due to the print. I love all the vibrant colors in the print and I think it has a more boho vibe than the preppier Martha Grace print. But with this dress I used one of my own belts, the Looping Lanes Belt from anthro, and instead wrapped the tie that came with the dress around to the back and tucked in the ends. 

I decided to play around with this dress and paired it with this faux fur cropped leather blazer from H&M (similar look here) that my sister picked up for $10 at their $15 off of all jackets/blazers sale. This isn't really a "Rosa" look but I'm always up for trying something new. I think it toughens up the dress a bit and would be perfect for a casual weekend brunch date.

Closer look at the two prints.

So these two dresses were the only ones that caught my eye that I could actually see myself wearing. Other items were cute but I know that a simple printed dress is easiest to incorporate into my closet.

Ditsy Tote in Dunclare Black
This tote is currently sold out on the website right now, but I snagged this thanks to a friend who picked it up at her local store. It's made out of cotton and has room for everything and anything inside. I love the black/white print and the slouchy shape. I've already carried this around running errands, and it held everything I needed. Would also be perfect for taking to the beach. And isn't the splash of pink adorable?

I learned very quickly that rain boots are an essential part of any New York City wardrobe. (Those crosswalks can get treacherous!) When I saw these fabulously printed wellies I knew I had to have them! They are a bit over the top girly but I think they will work perfectly for spring showers. 

Last but not least, I ordered a few photo frames to brighten up our apartment. I loved both the paisley and the black and white print. I need to get some photos printed to fill them but I think they will add a whimsical touch. Other housewares looked very promising as well but they sold out almost immediately!!! =( But I'm glad I came away with these. 

Did you score at Target this time around? Any favorites?


  1. I'm so happy to see you review some things from this collection! I thought it was just darling. I got the second dress you have on above, as well as the purple and white cotton one (name eludes me, but it was the more bandeau style one). I also picked up the two tier tray thing. Both dresses look super cute on you!

  2. I picked up the Pink Martha Grace Dress and some others. I live near several stores so I went to two on Sunday and then a third on Monday. I also picked up some mugs, a frame, and cannister for tea bags for my office. Everything seemed so springy!

    The dresses look great on you!

  3. Thanks for the review! I wanted to see these in persos, but alas, I am in Peru. I appreciate the upclose pictures and the details.


  4. gosh target is such an addiction =] i really love both of the dresses that you picked up. they're such pretty patterns. you have an adorable blog <3

  5. I really like the second dress, especially with the jacket. I think it looks very "you"!

  6. Awwwww. DARN.

    I didn't like ANYTHING in this collection. ANYTHING. Until I saw it on you. You just wear stuff too well.

    I really like that first dress. Ok...AND the second dress.

    Those rainboots are pretty cute, too.


  7. Those dresses look super cute! Thanks for the great review!


  8. I could not get those cute halter dresses to work on me. But, I am pleased with the shift dress (in petites, yay). My favorite piece is the garla red tie I got, though. And a shirt for my man that I will have to borrow! :)

  9. that sixty print looks FAB on you. I thought it was too colorful online for me, but you totally rock it! I ordered a few of the petite dresses and it's sitting on my doorstep. It took major willpower to avoid the store and random home items!
