Target Go International

Unless you're living under a rock, you probably realize Target re-released 34 of the the most popular GO International dresses yesterday.
Run. To. Target.
That basically sums it up. I don't think most Target stores will get all the dresses, my local one didn't. If there's one you want, they're all online. I will say, my one experience ordering clothes from Target.com did not go well, but I think that was just a fluke. I hope so, anyway. I tried on 4 different dresses and left with 2, and am still thinking about 1. Here's what I picked up:

The striped Libertine. I was iffy on this, but I liked the fit and for $25 I'll figure something out. I imagine I'll put it over leggings, and I'm liking the skinny belt they put with it so maybe something like that.

The floral print Tucker on the far right. I wanted this dress when the Tucker collection first came out - couldn't get it in the store. This lead to my ill-fated Target.com purchase - it never showed up. I tried to come to terms with never owning the Tucker dress so I was ecstatic when I saw it was part of the re-release. My Target had it, and now it's mine! Victory! I also tried on the navy Tucker dress which looks SO gorgeous but somehow looked so wrong on me when I put it on. 

And the one I'm not sure about - the Jovovich-Hawk on the right. When I tried this on in the store, it was like the navy Tucker - loved it, but just not happening for me. I thought it would look completely different belted though so when I got home, I started looking online, and of course it does look great belted. On the model. I'm on the fence but am tempted to go back and buy it now that I've seen it styled. Thoughts?

Have you picked up anything from the Target re-release yet? What'd you get? What's on your list?

I love your picks. I don't see why you couldn't figure something out the with Jovovick-Hawk dress. It's very 70's which is very in right now which might be why I'm kinda obsessed with it.

Glad the striped Libertine worked for you. I think its so cute but just didn't work on my body.

What did you think of the tulle Rodarte dress? I feel like everyone is raving about it but when I tried it on it was plain ridiculous!!

target is so smart though, they really do an amazing job with their cheap end fashion line! I think I'm going to go look, just look, and see what they have but I do already have a few of theirs and I really love them! I just have promised to not shop :)

i loved the jovovich-hawk collection, but i remember the fit for some of the dresses were really weird. like the arm area was really tight.

I can't wait to see you in your new dresses! I ended up with the Tucker ones on the left and in the middle and I'm in LOVE.

I had been living under a rock for a little over a week, so it's been a nice surprise to see these Target re-releases featured on a few blogs. Only, you're the only one to mention that they're re-releases so you get a gold star for journalism because you've captured the sense of urgency! I've seen a few that I like. If only the downpour outside would stop so I can be more inspired to buy some nice springy dresses!

my local one only got about 12 different styles. i picked up the same tucker dress as you, and the rodarte one that kind of looks like black lace.
ps - i got trapped for like 5 minutes in the black libertine dress, and nearly had a panic attack. i can see how it's really, really funny now, but at the time it was terrifying!

ps - i'm seriously considering driving out of my way to try on the pink zac posen. it looks so cute!

Kristin said...

I almost tried that floral Jovovich-Hawk one on...and now I'm wishing I had. Might have to go back to Target! HAHA

I have to admit, I wasn't as excited about the pieces they re-released as I'd hope I'd would be! On the other hand, I love your picks and think they'll look terrific. My guess-a belt is going to be amazing on the polka dot!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

i liked this green/turq color block shift by thakoon. haven't gotten it yet..i'd like to see it in the store and try on. maybe i'll take a trip this week to see if they have any of the dresses.

Valerie said...

I LOVE the striped dress you bought! That one is my fave. I need to go try it on (fingers crossed they have it at my Target). I have that Tucker dress and it's a great one. So glad you got it!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I've been eyeing the polka dot dress for a while now. My Target did not get this collection. What a bummer! :(

Marie said...

I want the first three.:D

Happy Monday, Katie!:D

I thought it was super fun that they re-released, but I haven't decided whether I'll actually pick anything up...I do adore that red floral Tucker dress you picked up though! hope you have a happy Monday! xoxo {av}

Ashleigh said...

Ah! Thanks for the reminder - I nearly forgot! I absolutely love the Libertine dress - so fun! And congrats on finally getting the Tucker dress! Gotta get to Target this week!

shealennon said...

I can't wait to see how you style your dresses! And I think you should go back and get that last one! I might be living vicariously through you--I'm trying not to shop. :(

Christine said...

Love all those dresses! They are super cute. I think my fave is the floral print. Look forward to seeing some pics! Also loving the shoes those models are rockin as well, I am a sucker for wedges :)

Jess said...

yeah I heard about this. Great finds!

Isabel said...

both my sister and i got the tucker signature dress. i hope it fits cause i wont be seeing it for a month or 2 at least since it was shipped to her in nyc. ill be super sad if it doesnt and by then ill be out of luck.

Fashion Therapist said...

I'm pretty sure that I'm one of the only people that was so not impressed with dresses they released. It made me realize why I didn't snatch these dresses the first time and I was bummed that I came out empty handed.

Kaleido Mind said...

def gonna check these out:D i like the ones you got!!

Jenny said...

Totally want to check them out - love your picks, can't wait to see how you style them!!!

Punctuation Mark said...

i need to go and check them out... i loooove target!!!

style'n said...

I got the striped Libertine too! Great price. Got that Thakoon one too and the black/white Thakoon...ok and the floral Libertine (not pictured)Seriously I went a little crazy..I started with 6 and took 2 back : )

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

ok, i just like to point out in reference to my earlier comment, if you go on the target website, and read reviews for the black libertine dress, someone else got trapped in it.
in other words:
I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!

hallelujah.

I picked up the Lace print silkish Rodarte dress, I love the way it fits and I can dress it up or down,

meghan said...

I bought four, including the Libertine that you got. I then returned two because they fit strange. I love the two that I kept. I wrote the Libertine last night, in fact! With leggings...because it's quite short...
