What has 2020 opened our eyes to? That the world can quickly change before you even realize it. That the pandemic can really screw the world if we don’t take it seriously. Oh, and that lousy fashion sense from Target can become viral because of how absurd our situation is now.
It’s the #TargetDressChallenge trend that people are having fun with. Let’s face it – Target doesn’t have the best fashion sense. But they’re mostly affordable and aren’t bad for emergencies. But these long dresses went viral when someone pointed out how it could be the last thing you wear in this world.
“Target has decided if we’re gonna suffer a pandemic, we might as well look like we just lost the farm after locusts ate our crops.”
Thanks to that, people think that’s not bad! ‘Little House on the Prairie’ is a new trend that people did not see coming. If we’re going to be isolated from each other, we might as well make the best out of it, right? You’re going to love what people do with these dresses.
“My poor girls are terrified of this dress and ran away screaming, so I had to substitute. Including an earlier photo that shows I do indeed have chickens.”
“As sexy as Robert Plant wearing a blouse in concert.”
“‘Barefoot with a chicken’ and showin’ a little skin. The hat doesn’t match the dress but the Coors bottle does. Amazingly, he saw the dress hanging after being washed and came up with the idea himself, no inspiration or alcohol or coercion needed!”
The little girl in the farm.
“Journal entry 324: another day in the life on the homestead while on lockdown.”
“Made myself a new apron and a bonnet. Recently the town accused me of witchcraft and only spared my life because they believe I can conjure up some cure for this virus. At least now I can fly my broom around in peace.”
“Alright y’all, confession time! Lol.. I really like the “TARGET DRESS”… And, I personally think I rocked it…”
“Day 313 without toilet paper… When you’re bored during a pandemic and you have the best boyfriend model ever.”
While the trend began when an Imgur user roasted the dress’ design, it has set actually raised the sale of this sale in many Target joints. Multiple people have confirmed that they couldn’t get one for their own since the challenge went viral. Several people have resorted to finding similar designs not from Target to compensate it.
“I can explain! Some people in one of the most fabulous chicken groups I’m in caught wind of it and ran with the idea!”
“The two aught two aught year of our Lord hath vexed me.”
“I am vexed, I say. The earth has been salted, the chickens refuse to lay. Donkeys born without a tail and other such ominous signs. But Providence has left me my solitary sister in poultry. And we stubbornly refuse to yield. So let the year two aught two one breathe it’s impotent fire. I stand or squat ready.”
“It’s day 329 of the great plague. The Target Mercantile has blessed us with new fabrics to enhance our pandemic fashion.”
“I feel Margaret got a little bit risky in her decision to flaunt that racy lace seam. After all, we are modest women out on the farmstead. Unwanted stares from the menfolk are unholy. Supplies were getting scarce. We needed to venture out for food. Trudging uphill, both ways in the snow as our ancestors once did. Margaret was able to keep us safe with her trusty 22 and her deadeye for shots. We were able to make dinner from an elegant goose that will feed the kin for a fortnight. We shall milk the goats (oops they’re boys) and churn some butter and feast. Lastly, our local gymnasium allowed us to get some physical fitness in to keep up our health and our spirits.”
Little baby greeting the winter.
Ain’t a farm without the chickens, right?
If you didn’t know what people meant with ‘Little House on the Prairie,’ then chances are that you’re a young millennial at the oldest. The show aired in 1974 and finished its last episode in 1983. The story revolves around Charles Ingall’s family, who manages a farm in Walnut Grove in Minnesota.
“Good bye ’20, fling that sh*t behind you.”
“Quarantine day 329: Pa said if this winter holds out much longer he’ll need to butcher the hog… I don’t reckon I’m ready to say goodbye, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a hankering for some fresh bacon.”
Chickens are getting popular as well.
Oops, I guess you caught me.
“I had no problems looking this mean and crazy, but Meliyah had a hard time not laughing.”
“We really wanted a Holy Bible for the shoot but roads are bad and I couldn’t get one from the dollar tree. If you notice Meliyah’s leg bleeding, well she slipped and fell during the shoot and the blood looked good so we rolled with it hoping to give a more true to the times feel. Gilead won’t be taking over this damn homestead anytime soon!”
“Between the pandemic and kidding season, life definitely hasn’t felt that far from these. My whole family thinks I’ve completely lost it (and maybe I have), but I surely hope this makes someone’s day.”
“No chickens were harmed during this photo shoot.”
“The world needs MORE laughter and less sadness these days. Every bit helps.”
“From my husband Matt, ‘We have been seeing these funny target dress challenge shoots, and she gave me that LOOK. At first, I laughed when she and our boys suggested it, then I was like, ‘You know what!? The world has seen so much sadness and really bad stuff this year, my family has suffered some serious losses this year, it will make my boys laugh and maybe someone else. Plus, I love using our little farm for the shoot and making my photographer wife smile, you know? And, the boys are going to learn to make pillows out of the dress fabric when we are done—we all win. If you can make someone laugh or smile, why not!?’”
“Sometimes, you just need a snowy day, a good friend to agree to shenanigans and partake in a good.”
This trend may have been set into motion with rumors of a reboot in the works. The TV show was based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s novels. Deadline reported that Anonymous Content, Paramount Television Studios, and Friendly Family Productions are working on a one-hour dramatic series adaptation.
