All Tuckered Out

What I'm wearing:
*Tucker for Target Signature Dress in Diamond Print
*Forever 21 Elastic Velcro Loop Belt in Brown
*Nine West "Lucero" Pump in Wine Patent (similar here)
*MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Tote in Luggage

Ok, it's official, Tucker for Target is definitely my favorite Target/designer collaboration. I'm usually disappointed by these (I'm talking to you, Botkier, Hayden-Harnett, Anna Sui, Rodarte) but I have much love for the Tucker line. I've always been a fan of Tucker's printed dresses, but could never justify buying one at the higher price point. I love that now I can enjoy a lovely signature dress at a Target price. This appeals to the thrifty bargain lover in me.

I decided to pair this particular dress with a brown elastic belt from Forever 21 (it was under $5!) to give some shape to the blouse-y dress. The wine patent pumps pick up the bits of red in the print. I really love the bird lawn print (see it on me here) but I think the diamond print dress is my favorite out of the whole line. I'm a lucky girl because this dress was sold out at my local Target, and sold out online, and my lovely friend S snagged one for me at hers! Thank you so very much.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was filled with apartment-related stuff, and I'm still no where close to being settled. I did finally grab everything that I had left in my storage space when I first left NYC, which is great, but it was a huge pain getting it all to my new place. I just have to say that I couldn't have done it without M, who was amazing and lugged all of my heavy suitcases and things up 3 flights of stairs, with no complaint. What more can a girl ask for?

On a random note, after watching Mad Men last night, I really want a pen necklace like Joan! Anyone know where I can get one?


  1. I love it!

    Today I'm wearing a Tucker dress too! (The orange floral short-sleeved one.) I agree, it's my favorite collaboration yet! I have two more on the way from my mom, bringing me up to four pieces (so far) from this line!

    You'll be settled in before you know it. I think I could handle a walk-up EXCEPT for the moving part - what a pain!

  2. Would you believe I've never seen Mad Men? I'm kind of dying because it's not on NetFlix either and I really want to start watching it!

    You look fantastic in that dress, so glad your friend picked it up for you! What a great friend!

  3. That dress looks great on you and paired with that belt. I have the purple lawn print dress (like the other one you have) and I've paired it with a skinny belt but I'm going to try it with a wide belt like you did.

  4. Love that dress on you! I tried it on and it didn't work on me at all...I'm so sad!

  5. I love that dress on you!!! Mine is coming in the mail and I can't wait!

  6. This outfit is a winner from head to toe. I got the purple lawn print dress last week and I can't wait to wear it.

  7. This dress is so much better on you than it looked to me on the hanger! I passed on the Tucker collab, but after seeing a few pieces on you, I know I want to go back and take another look.

  8. Love this dress on you. And I agree, this was my fave print out of the whole line too. But I just can't do polyester and I always regret buying things from these Target collaboration lines. But you rock it and are making me re-think my reasoning!

  9. Looks great! You can try looking for a pencil necklace on Etsy! :)

    Just Better Together

  10. I'm so glad you got the dress and it looks fabulous on you!!!

    I know Jessica from What I Wore has a pen necklace ala mad men. You may be able to check out where she got hers from. It's so fun and unique! Totally you.

  11. I love that dress but haven't even been to target to see the line in person- can I ask you what size you are wearing?

  12. Melissa,
    Mad Men is definitely worth watching!!! Season 1 is especially fantastic.

    I will definitely check out etsy!

    I am wearing an XS in this dress, this line runs very large.

  13. That outfit is perfection on you, Rosa. I had to skip the collection since none of the patterns/colors worked for me, but it looks so good on you!

    And yes! Another Mad Men fan. I'd take almost everything Joanie wears, mmhm.

  14. That dress looks really beautiful on you! I love the you gave it some shape with a belt, it's such a simple edit but, makes a huge difference... Good luck settling in!

  15. You look gorgeous, as usual. I was totally going to bypass this line, but after seeing this dress on you I'm going to have to take another look. This dress is perfection on you!!!
