Target dress, J.Crew necklace, and some zebra chairs

May 30, 2012

Random lengthy title, huh.
Okay, so I've finally gotten my phone to connect to my computer so I could share a few more things with you this morning.  
First, remember when I mentioned I never buy clothes or shoes at Target.  I just don't like the fit or quality.  Well, color me wrong, because that same afternoon I bought this neon pink and cream cotton dress.  And I love it.  I seriously have worn it three or four times since.  It's comfortable and easy and goes in the washing machine.  Done and done.  They don't sell it online, sadly, but this black and white striped skater dress was the closest I could find.  Go to your store today and buy it.  
  For reals.
 So I finally got two of my dining chairs painted.  I went with a high gloss white lacquer paint and brown and white zebra fabric for the chair cushions.  I'm in LOVE with them.
What do you think?  Should I have gone bolder?  I'm picturing a really bold and bright colored pillow.  Any suggestions for fabric?
 I feel so bad about my earlier post because it seems the sellers of this gorgeous (and most likely stolen, oh crap) j.crew bubble necklace have been removed from ebay.  Yup, apparentely they do that when you're the chinese mafia pilfering stolen goods for the slave trade.
I seriously feel horrible that I contributed.  But not quite horrible enough not to wear it.
Please tell me I'm not the only one.

  1. I ordered it too, a few weeks ago.

    But - it's a great necklace, and I wear it all the time. Oops.

  2. You aren't the only one!I ordered one last season in turquoise and then recently bought another one in yellow! I love them both and even more since I paid less $20 each for them. Sorry Jcrew...

  5. That necklace is beautiful. I was going to order one, but I guess I missed my chance. I love the Target dress. I actually like Target clothes. What I've bought holds up well, so hopefully your dress will last. :)

  6. Loving that Target dress! Too cute! I like the chairs and the fabric you chose for the seats. Maybe a bold pink or turquoise pillow would be fun!?

  7. First of all, love your chairs! They turned out amazing. I have just ordered the bubble necklace from Ebay. I hope they still ship my order. I do not feel so bad considering I have bought 2 of the J Crew bubble necklaces and the fell apart.

  8. Those chairs!!! They turned out amazing! I want to paint mine SO bad. What paint did you use, a spray paint? Dress is fab by the way. And, don't feel bad about the necklace. You helped out by getting it out of the hands of the perps :D

  11. You tease me with the necklace and no its gone- wah!!! Love the Tarjay dress. I can occasssionally find a few things there. But I agree the fit is usually not the best but for the price you cant beat it! I am always a fan of zebra and glossy white.

  12. If I look half as cute in that dress as you, then I'm getting it!!!

  13. The necklace looks great. We had the SAME thing happen to us! We purchased a K-Cup Coffee Maker on ebay and it was shipped to us direct from Bed, Bath and Beyond. After looking at the receipt enclosure, we discovered it had been purchased with a stolen credit card and then put on ebay to sell! We were able to contact the woman on the other end who filed a complaint. Crazy thing...the seller is still selling. Sad, so sad.

  22. I bought 3 of the necklaces in different color ways. Two for me and one for college daughter because she kept asking to "Borrow" mine.

  23. For the love! I've been watching those eBay necklaces, too scared to commit to one color and then they are gone. There are actually a few left but bidders going crazy over them. DARN IT.

  24. I bought the stolen necklace. Mine has fallen apart 2 or 3 times and I have been piecing back together with jewelry parts from Michaels because I love it so much.

  31. Sweet, where did you find out the information on the necklace? I've just ordered 2 on Ebay.au. I hope we recieve them, but on the other hand I do feel a little bad, if the fact are 100% right.
