Dress: Jason Wu for Target
Belt: Forever 21
Bag: Jason Wu for Target
I finally got my hands on this Jason Wu dress! Carol was kind enough to pick it up for me at her Target in a size 6 the day the collection launched, but then I saw a picture of my size twin Kathryn wearing the dress in a size 4 and I realized that I needed a 4 too. So I stalked the Target website for days and it finally popped back up in my size :)
Of course I wanted to wear the dress to work the day after it arrived, but I had no clue what colors to pair it with, so it just hung untouched in my closet for a few weeks. I eventually decided to wear a black cardigan and heels with it because that's how Jason Wu styled it on one of those morning shows (well, I doubt that it was really him who dressed the model) and I trust that he knows what he's doing. I actually think it will look even better in the spring/summer with just the black heels and belt and no cardigan.
I also wore tights with this outfit to work because 1) The dress is kinda short, 2) It was only in the 50's outside, and 3) My legs are still super pale, but that was a BIG mistake. The dress clung to the tights like crazy and kept riding up on me all throughout the day. I even had a slip on underneath it, but that didn't seem to help. I tried to hide out in my office all day, but when I did have to leave, I made sure that I carried something in front of me so that no one could see the issues that I had going on. Lesson here? Do not wear tights with this dress EVER or you will pay!
