Black or Blue?

When the Stella McCartney for Target collection goes into stores tomorrow should I get the Lace Dress pictured above in the French Blue or the Black? That is the question I've been pondering for a while. The blue is so deep and majestic, and currently I don't own any blue dresses, but the black is more practical and wearable, even though 99% of my wardrobe consists of little black dresses. I guess I'm leaning more towards the black just because I know I will wear it more.

Another dress I quite like is pretty unusually girly for me. The Gathered Silk dress in this soft muted pink is perfect for this seasons big trend of “nude” cream tones (I say the term nude loosely, as I am perfectly aware that not everyone has cream coloured skin that there are a whole range of nude tones in the world) Playing with the tone and matching it with other earthy shades, I can see this dress working well for the upcoming Christmas and New Year party season.

I also love the Printed Bow Gathered Dress as right now I'm into unusual animal prints, and basically anything gathered at the waist is quite forgiving for my figure. I would wear this with some clogs and a big floppy hat down by the pool at the many pool parties I'm sure I'm going to attend up here in Sydney. My life devoid of pool parties back in Melbourne seems so, well, simply tragic now. Haha no seriously, I'm still getting a kick out of the Sydney's lavish launch parties, the Target launch being my favourite so far.

The collection goes into selected Target stores this Friday 29th of October and like I said previously the sizes go up to a 16 which is great for me.

  1. Wow the dresses are magnificent! I so wish we have this kind of designer collaboration in Singapore. No, first bring Target into Singapore then we'll talk about the designer collaboration.

    I think you should get the lace dress in dark blue. It is way harder to find lace dresses in blue than to find them in black and it is such a deep dark blue that it'll go with your normal black things anyway!!

    Looking forward to have you wear it for us!

  2. I would say it'd be so hard to find another dress as nice in such an amazing blue colour. Definitely get the blue!

  3. No! Stop! Get the blue, it's such a lovely colour.

    mmm... the blue and white dress would be perfect for a day on a yacht too.

  4. I didn't realise that Stellar was back again for Target?

    The black is alot nicer than the blue dress.

  5. See, I would say go for the blue! It looks like a nice deep blue that it's something slightly different from the black, but not too drastic of a change!

  6. The lace dress is stunning, I love it in the navy. I also love that gathered stripe dress, so cute.

  7. I remember the last time Stella came to town, it turned ladies into crazyzillas, get in early before the stampede and I would do blue lace, it's a classic.

  10. I tried on all of them today.. the blue is stunning, dark enough to be worn all the time I think it would be beautiful on you. The striped one is my personal fave, just looks soooo good on!
    Pls post a pic when you choose!

  11. Remember it's Target quality either way. I work for the aforementioned store and was up all night setting up the stock... it's not great quality. Check all the hems and stitching before you buy a piece.

  12. I like the lacey dress in blue! I think it gives it a more vintage look. Also, wanted to pop over to your blog to tell you that I featured you on my blog today - http://www.nearsightedowl.com/2010/10/style-crush-hayley-hughes.html

  14. I was a little late to see the blue version of this dress but I did pick up the lighter blue lace top.. pretty well made and fabric seems of reasonable quality.. for 129 bucks you really can't complain.. love to see any pics of what you chose.
