I have been passionate about Rodarte since I first set eyes on the first collection of theirs to reach the internet. I never dreamed I would ever be able to afford something the Mulleavy sister’s designed. Of course, now thanks to Target it is accessible to many (stateside that is, I’m afraid, though it is also all over eBay now). I actually got my Rodarte for Target dress through Chictopia’s Rewards (awesome!) and I’ve been seeing a lot of other Chictopians snag Rodarte pieces as well. It seems I am not the only one passionate about this collection, makes me feel as if I have some kindred spirits out there. So I thought I’d feature a few Chictopians wearing their Rodarte for Target pieces.
Showgirlgodzilla got the classic striped tee and showed us four different, equally stylish ways to wear it.
Calivintage snagged both the blue and black dress and looks effortlessly amazing in both.
Valncami- looks ethereal in her mustard, yellow bow dress.
Darling Darling got the faux fur vest and created a wonderfully, eclectic ensemble with polka dots!
I snagged a Rodarte dress through Chictopia’s Chic Rewards (awesomeness!) and decided to pretend to be a fairy princess for the day…
While this does mean a lot of people will have the same pieces…does that really matter? I think it’s the way we wear our clothes, how we style them that set us apart; not where we shop. I think these pictures express illustrate that thought beautifully. A cohesive collection was made for Target; all the pieces “went together” in a sensible pattern. But take the clothes away from the collection, let 5 individuals stye them and you get five diverse looks that have very little relation to each other. Are we all whimsical/silly? Are we all modern/edgy? Everyone has their own look, unique to them.
Again, it’s not where we shop, or if we own all the same pieces, it’s how we wear what we own.
