Who doesn't love designers at Target prices?  (Tar-jhay to the pretentious, hopeful the outfits' humble origins will elude detection).

Target's designer collaborations over the past 5 years have been so successful that Target has re-issued some of its best dresses for a limited time, currently available now.

L-R: Thakoon, Tracy Feith, Alice Temperley, Libertine

Cute and affordable!  Best of all, fuss-free.  Who wants to dry clean in the summer?

I came away with the Thakoon batik dress and the Tracy Feith white, corset sundress -- so Dolce and Gabbana! -- before they got sold out.  Target Collaborations often do, sometimes getting resurrected on eBay.  There are more dresses from Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Jovovich-Hawk ... the list goes on and on.  Beware that some of the fabrics looked quite cheap, so I opted for the weightier, cotton ones.

I also grabbed the floral Tracy Feith below (featured in Elle) -- reminiscent of bygone East Coast summers when Kate Spade or Lilly Pulitzer ruled.  Very preppy with pearls and a floppy hat.  Not that I'd wear it that way.

But what I am really very excited about is the upcoming collaboration with Calypso St. Barths!

As Iman famously said, "I never met a caftan I didn't like."  Neither have I.

Calypso goes live on May 1st.  There may be nothing left by May 2nd.
