It's Missoni Time!

Yea, It didn't take me long to break out my Missoni dress.  I am one of those people that have to wear what I bought immediately.  No one else is like that in my house though. 
Thank goodness the weather turned cool this weekend so I could break it out and not have a case of heatstroke!
I threw on a dark gray button down under the dress, but I can see the potential for styling this is huge!
I couldn't NOT pull out the boots. 
 The long medallion just added to the vibe of this look.
I thought I had grabbed brownish tights when I got dressed.
  Looking at these pictures, tells a different story.
 LOL 
They are not brown in the least. 
 I like the dark eggplant actually though.
  A happy mistake.
I got a few nods that I had on Missoni at church on Sunday.
  Husband just kept shaking his head.
One woman I had never met was just as excited that I had scored something as I was.
I see this dress as a future staple in my wardrobe. 
 Good thing I got it before my 100 day detox started.
One day down on that by the way and so far so good.
  I would be in bigger trouble than I could imagine if I was already having withdrawals. :)

Did you score anything Missoni?  Have you worn it yet? 
 Did anyone comment on it?

PS.  for all of you who asked:
yes I can still Christmas shop.
no shopping for myself!

What a fantastic outfit! Love the colors! I wish I would have had an opportunity to enjoy a Missoni piece, but not anytime soon. :(

Super cute, Brett! I didn't get a single item. All of our Target's were sold out in like 10 minutes. They only had baby clothes left. Stupid BABIES!! haha. Just kidding.

You look great. I agree that the eggplant tights were a happy mistake. They look great. And I've always loved those boots. Glad you're wearing them again this fall.

xo,
Tracy

I am loving the maroon tights with that dress, and I think those boots look great.

Spectacular outfit! I love the tights and boots with this dress, and the fact that you layered under it is so smart! You're so rockin' it!

Cutest Missoni outfit I have seen! I didn't even go looking for any at our store. I was there today and saw NOTHING Missoni, not a sign or a zigzag in sight!

You look groovy!! Yeah, baby!

No Missoni for me... I really wanted some of the house stuff, the throw pillows and whatnot.

Glad you managed to score a dress!

Chic on the Cheap

Ok...I am crazy jealous. That dress is adorable!

Deborah said...

Laura said...

You look very chic!

I'm wearing my Missoni for Target cardigan today! But I didn't take pics. =( Oh, well. Next time I will!

I absolutely adore that dress! And the way you accidentally wore the colored tights, I love!

Peggy said...

Yea!! You got something! It is HARD to find anything. I am dying to get the open cardigan that matches your dress! I need a medium and have gone a zillion times to target stalking returns! Haha

LUVIT! I snagged this exact same dress. Isn't it delightful? It's like, form fitting in all the right places. Stylish. Comfortable. A total dreamboat of a dress. I haven't worn mine yet, but after seeing you in yours, I really, really want to.

I adore the eggplant tights with it, too! Nice mistake!
