Roadtest: How A Rodarte For Target Dress Fits (We Tried It On)

If you’re planning to go one of the three Target pop-up shops Friday through Sunday to get your hands on the first Rodarte for Target pieces, we’ve got the scoop. The pop-up “shop” is more like a window shop–you can look, but you can’t touch, and the shop is outdoors.

Rodarte for target black halter dressAs we previously reported, this blush pink dress, shown above, and a black lace halter (at left), were offered, , along with a black sequin ribcage dress, and two bow headbands. So taken with the blush pink lace, chiffon and tulle dress in its vintage style ($39.99), I bought one. But it’s hard to figure out what size you can’t even touch the item.

I usually wear a size 4, sometimes size 6. I went for the small, but when I saw someone else take a medium out of their bag,  I re-thought it. I got the medium, and turns out, they do run a little small. It’s made for someone with a small chest,  as the slip on it is very tailored at the top. I would have tried the large, probably. And it’s prone to major static cling–you’ve been warned.

A tip: don’t forget to check your bag to make sure you got the right item (everything is already “wrapped” in  red and white candy cane striped bags, but can get mixed up easily)–and of course, dress warm–preferably in UGGs or a very heavy scarf.
