Dress: Rodarte for Target, Shoes: Bakers, Jacket: from italy, Necklace: Gifted

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well if thats the case...so is this dress.

On one of the colder days while on vacation in Florida, my family and I ventured into Target hoping to find left over Rodarte pieces. I was looking for the dress in my pictures (yes..i'm giving away the happy ending), my brother was looking for the leopard bow backed dress......for his girlfriend.

Like dogs sniffing for drugs, we ran through the aisles anxious to find what we were looking for. I was beginning to feel let down when all of a sudden I saw my brother carrying my dress! The one dress that was left! yes yes yes!

No.No.No...Wrong.

"Well i can't find the leopard dress so I think i'll just get this one for her" he says....casually...as if I would be cool with it.

A few words were exchanged and I begin to excessively pout/rage, whatever you would like to call it.....until I saw the leopard bow back dress hidden behind a rack. I grabbed it faster than you could say boo, dangled it over my shoulder and strutted to the changeroom.....making sure my brother could see me perfectly. I actually had no intention to buy it but...duty calls.

I tried it on and pretended I was going to get it for a solid half hour....until he began to pace in circles around me.

It's all fun and games.... until Rodarte is involved.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

Thanks for your comment, my collection of stupid skirts is getting bigger and bigger...!

See you soon,

Mamie.

Oh my gosh, I know! I saw that dress in Target only once, but by the time I got my money from the car it was gone! I looked at every Target in the area, but never found it again. Glad you got one, though.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
