three dollar treat via target

IMG_2616

So there I was at Target the other day…grabbing some groceries, you know, cleaning supplies, etc etc. Well, I stopped by the clearance clothing section (of course), and found this Altuzarra for Target dress on clearance for $13. Sold. Anywho, I was at the register checking out when their machine froze and stopped working. I didn’t really care all that much, but the store was very apologetic and gave me $10 off my purchase. As a result, I figured this dress wound up being a three dollar treat. Ta. Da. Also, it’s softer than my pajamas, and it’s snakeskin print. I mean, really? It’s a three dollar treat via Target.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) If you’re a fan of the Altuzarra collection, or even if you have yet to see it, there are still a LOT of pieces available online and seriously marked down. Go to target.com and enter “Altuzarra” in the search box to find the available pieces. There are still skirts, tops, dresses, and shoes available (when I last checked). I think the quality of the collection is quite good; I got stopped many times about this dress and kept telling people it was from Target. Target is where it’s at, right?! 
2) I went pretty bold with this look, despite the bold print. Sometimes you want to just go all out, right? But this dress could be easily “toned down” with black tights, black shoes, neutral cardigan or blazer, and a neutral scarf. As with many dresses, you could also layer a sweater over the dress and make the dress into a skirt to “tone it down” into a smaller print. 
Anyone else find some pieces in this collection? Going to snag some on sale? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!

feeling so very fall (and cold!)

Well, readers, it’s getting to the point where it’s a bit difficult (read: freezing) to pose outside without Uggs and a down jacket. But, fear not, I will continue to bravely sport my outfits outside as long as possible! I just cannot resist the falling leaves and yellow trees as a backdrop. Can you blame me? My girlfriend and I do get a few odd looks here and there as people pass by as we take the blog photos. It’s all in the name of fashion, people.  All in the name of fashion.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) While it is a bit chilly to wear this outside without a jacket, this outfit definitely works indoors this time of year. Once the heat gets going inside at work, long sleeve t-shirts work just fine indoors. I also tend to wear my flats and heels without socks/tights/knee highs until it gets a bit colder out. I don’t really have a rule of thumb about when I stop wearing bare feet with shoes, but I would say it tends to happen when there is snow on the ground or when my feet get too cold indoors. When I do make the switch over to socks/tights/knee highs, I keep my same summer, spring, and fall shoes out and just add a layer to my feet. Adding a layer is a good general strategy for transitioning clothes and shoes!

2) This long sleeve t-shirt is definitely casual for work, but I dressed it up with a scarf and dress pants.  On Fridays, I tend to wear my more casual tops (this outfit was from Friday). As I’ve posted before, I think you can definitely wear t-shirts and long sleeve t-shirts at work within reason, as long as your other pieces (pants, shoes, jewelry) are more formal.  Wearing your weekend tops with more formal pieces allows you to get a lot more wear out of your “weekend” clothes by wearing them at work.

Anyone else find themselves still going barefoot in their shoes? Wearing t-shirts at work?

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Thanks for stopping by, readers!
