$150 Challenge: Retro Party Romantic

If you're looking for a dress to get you from Thanksgiving to New Year's and beyond, Target has a black, retro inspired dress on sale. My roommate owns this in burgundy and it's stunning, but it's not so fancy that you can't pop a blazer over it for day. Speaking of work, these t-straps transition nicely from work to play. Add a pop of color on the finger and sleek clutch for sophisticated wow. Finish it off with a bright white coat and textural scarf.

The dress is a little different than mine in the skirt. This is a touch shorter, and the styling at the waist is pleated (it also looks like they ditched the pockets which is sad.) Probably because mine was Isaac Mizrahi and this one is Merona. I wonder if the taffeta that this one is made of has the same lovely sheen that my burgundy one has. I also wonder about the fit. The Isaac Mizrahi was a little too short in the waist, though admittedly, a lot of things are on me. The price is definitely better than what I would have originally paid had it not been on super clearance. Either way, it's a lovely flattering style. I'd buy this dress all over again.
