Five Dresses, Four Spring Trends

On Saturday I told y’all about my mission to score some dresses from the Target Go International Designer Collective. Well, I”m happy to announce that my mission was a resounding success! Not only do I have five fabulous new dresses to get all dolled up in, but I’ll be rockin’ some of the hottest spring trends as well. As much as I’ve proclaimed that I’m not a slave to trends, I’m loving so many of them this season AND the fall season that will be headed our way before we know it!

So, who else bought goodies from the collection? I’d love to hear about your scores! I’ve already started planning where I’m going to wear each frock…a fashion event, date night, Easter…Can you guess which dress is for which event?

    oooo i’m loving the colour blocking trend as I love wearing colour. Suffice to say I wont be buying any as I’m on my ethical fashion mission and we don’t have target in the UK anyway. I adore Thakoon though πŸ™‚

    Great pics! I ended up with 5 dresses..went in at 9 am the place was empty! My sister went in later that day and picked up one more for me. So I have 6!!!! Seriously….I think I might have overdone it and should take 1 or possibly 2 back!!!

    I’m a sucker for a polka dot but the floral number is just too cute for words. It’s probably the vintage vibe that I’m liking so much.

    I hope you are wearing the Tracy Feith for is just the perfect Easter dress for real!
    They are all great finds, particularly love the sleevless color blocked thakoon.

    I had it on my calender, and planned on heading out in the morning… and then found out that Hailey had a morning game, and the rest of the weekend was a party-planning blur. I’m still going to go today or tomorrow (My Target isn’t super busy, so I’m hoping I’m not too late!!)

    Oh, I was loving that Jovovich-Hawk number when I saw it online. There were some cute bits from their collection featured – and the fact that they’re no longer pursuing the label makes me want to snatch up everything available! There was a tan-ish very boho-hippie–cowgirl-looking dress of theirs that I especially liked. (Don’t you love my descriptions?)

    And I think the Tracy Feith is a must for Easter!
