Tucker for Target is not for me

aka. Another Disappointing Shopping Trip

Yesterday, I popped into my local Target store and was beyond thrilled to see that the entire Tucker for Target line was on sale (in the $15 range) as well as a few other pieces that I'd been craving. So I snatched them all up and quickly proceeded to the dressing room.

First, I tried on Tucker's Signature dress in floral in two sizes (M & L). Both sizes hung from my body like a sack and the sleeves could have come down to my wrists. Overall, it was not flattering and not for me.



Next, I tried Tucker's Signature blouse in Cream. This blouse also did bad things to my pear shaped body. Since the blouse is so loose and drapey, it made my smaller top half and waist look larger and gave me an overall boxy look. If only it came with a waist cinching belt.

I found the lacy skirt that EVERY fashion blogger owns (I'm talking about you Blue Collar Catwalk and Keiko Lynn), however when I tried it on it clung to me in all the wrong places (bum, thighs, panty-line, ACK!)

Finally, I tried on a Mossimo floral western shirt in navy and quickly discovered why it was on clearance. The snaps didn't want to snap and the material felt cheap, so it also ended up back on the shelf.

Needless to say, I left the store with nothing.
