I wasn’t mad about Jean Paul Gaultier’s line for Target when the lookbook was released online. When the line arrived in stores, I had to peruse the pieces in person. I officially concluded then that the collection wasn’t for me (though the trench coat was great).
However, I was intrigued by a quite shapely JPG dress on the 75% off rack last weekend. Of course, items on clearance racks are always more appealing than when seen full-price. One of the remaining two dresses was miraculously in my size, so I trotted off to the fitting room with an armful of similarly discounted, non-designer-for-Target, merchandise. Once on, I loved the daisy-print dress even more.
Suffice to say, I am delighted by my Jean Paul Gaultier for Target $14.99 purchase. The flirty full skirt makes dancing and twirling seemingly appropriate, and thanks to the streamlined bodice I can model my shoulders and back without exposing too much skin. It’s an easygoing number that was simply too pretty (and too cheap) to pass up. Worn under a belted jacket, it could be even more exquisite. In my suitcase I will gently pack away my find should any honeymoon-related activity, if deemed suitable, shall arise.
