Loft vs. Target: Toile Print Dress

The Showdown:

Ann Taylor LOFT
I really wanted this lovely Lela Rose dress from her LOFT Collaboration.
Alas, I could not bring myself to pay the $90+ to purchase it though.

(Here is the lovely Emmy Rossum wearing said dress)
P.S. Don't you just love all of these ladies in the Showtime series Shameless?
It is one of my guilty pleasures
and I can't wait for the new season to start this fall.


So when I went into Target a couple weeks ago and was perusing the clearance rack and found this Converse One Star dress for GASP $7!

I immediately grabbed it and headed to the dressing room.

While it is not an exact copy of the Lela Rose dress it does have a similar feel to it
and for $7 I couldn't say no.

I have since worn it quite a bit and it is so light, breezy, and comfortable so I am glad that I bought it.

So, while I love LOFT, my bank account won out in this showdown.

Target you are the WINNER!
