Hello readers! Sorry I had to take a little break from the blogging world to tie up some work and personal items. I hope you missed me, for I missed you!

Today’s look is quite a…uh…looker. (Forgive me…I’m shaking off the dust that’s been clogging my blogging brain).

A friend of mine I mentioned in an earlier post, Sara, gifted me with some wonderful pieces from her closet that no longer held her interest. After sifting through her gift bag, I chose a few pieces to make my own – one of which is this lovely tiger print dress.

It’s a Phillip Lim for Target and I must say…it’s certainly attention getting. It was part of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection which debuted mid-2013.

Hence the title of my post….the question is: Is it “Bam!” as in…”in-your-face fabulous”! or is it too “Bamm, Bamm”? As in Barney Rubble’s son from the Flintstone’s.

Let’s hope it’s the former and not the latter! Judging by the feedback I’ve received today I think it is (hopefully)! I must say I’m quite impressed with the fit and feel of the dress. It’s comfortable and fits true to size. I think it’s a flattering cut too which I was worried about since its quite form fitting. Overall, I’m pleased with it! 

I kept the jewelry very simple; just a pair of simple stud earrings. And I paired the dress with brown, coppery Steve Madden heels. I didn’t want to add anything to the dress as I felt even the slightest addition could throw the look over the top. …and into Bamm Bamm territory.

I wish this were something you could purchase now or that I could even find a comparable dress for you in case you’re interested in the look. The best I can do is point you in the direction of eBAY and wish you luck (click here). Actually, if you enter into your eBAY search filters, Phillip Lim for Target, you’ll come up with quite a selection. I’m thinking of purchasing the A-line skirt made out of this same fabric from the 3.1 collection if I can find my size on eBAY. Maybe you’ll see it in future posts! 

I’ll just pretend I’m Pebbles when I wear it – she did always have the cutest little dinosaur bone accented top knot! Xoxo…Cortneybre…
