Libertine for Target – Fashion Police opinion


Oh, you have to be kidding me? Is skull-print still not dead? Well, no – not if the Libertine for Target collection is to be believed, anyway. Those skulls just refuse to lay down and die, which has resulted in a bit of a schizophrenic collection, with ladylike pussy-bow blouses, pretty woven shirts – and then a selection of items that look like something you’d wear to go trick or treating. Bat print bermudas, with frayed edges, anyone?

Nope, I’m afraid  I’m not feeling it. When it’s good, it’s really pretty good: the bows call out to my obsession with the things, and the lace-front shirt is going right onto my wish-list because I love the retro geek-appeal of it. When it’s bad, though? Well, those green printed bats are pretty awful, no?

    I actually went to Target yesterday to check it out. Blech. I was so excited about the tie-front secretary shirt, but it turned out to be that blah oatmeal shade that makes me look dead. The only cute thing I found was a navy, silk cami with black lace at the neck and waist. The waist was elasticized, so that the body of the cami was poufy. Could be cute, but not on me.

    I think some of the pieces could look cute, (yes, even the pink skull-print vest!) but those shorts are horrible!
