Sorry to have such a disgusting title for today's post, but it's TRUE. I have been sicker than Britney Spears y'all, and the only interesting purchase I've made has been Claritin D. Which (thank you crystal meth makers everywhere) I now have to buy at the pharmacy counter. And (thank you prescription drug patent for running out) I now have to pay ONE DOLLAR PER PILL. Which doesn't leave me a ton of money for buying cute shoes.
While I was at Target buying my drugs, I checked out the new Go Target line by Alice Temperley. And I got to tell you, I was not impressed. All the lines are starting to look the same to me - quirky for quirkiness sake - and everything seems to be geared to young adults. As an old adult, I'd like to see stuff made for ME (cuz it's ALL about ME). Which is why I continue to adore Issac Mizrahi. He takes massive risks with some of his stuff, but at least it's never cutesy-poo or precious. And the man can design a pencil skirt like no one's bidness.
Which brings me to my other great discovery (that I actually made 5 months ago. So. Hmm. Sorry I didn't mention it earlier!). Issac makes bridal and evening gowns that are to DIE for. So cute! So classic! So over-$20-so-I-can't-buy-one! But you all can! Check out Target.com and take a looksie at the cuteness.
And remember - this is not haute couture. These dresses are not cut to fit you exactly, so you will need to take your item to a seamstress for tailoring. In short, buy up a size. Or two. You can use the leftover material to make a purse! Or not, whatever, see if I care.
