I have been eagerly anticipating this line for months now so of course I had to swoop into my friendly neighborhood Target the day of its arrival. I was disappointed to find that the store carried only a few of the many pieces I viewed online but eventually realized it was probably a good thing because I would have wanted to buy out the whole of the collection. Here is what I found...
This is a fun party dress but I wasn't absolutely in love with it. The pros: The frilly skirt is removable and without it you have the simple black dress version above which makes two dresses in one. The cons: I know the dress comes in red too, but sadly this store didn't have it. I think I would have liked it even more in that color. I would also love it more if the detachable skirt wasn't sheer so it could be worn on it's own with a fun top.
I was hesitant to even try this dress on because I didn't think it would flatter me but I decided to just for the sake of the blog. Boy was I surprised. This ended up being one of my favorites and the second I put it on I knew I had to buy it. The tye dye print is festive and current and the fit was perfect--hugging all the right places but relaxed enough to dress up or down.
This was another dress I didn't expect to like so much but once I put it on I absolutely loved the fit. I didn't end up purchasing it but I came pretty darn close to. You can't really tell from the photo but the dress cuts off a little below the thigh and from there down is a more sheer, netted texture. That flowy sleeves are that same texture and I think those touches altogether made the dress.
I appreciated the originality of this dress. The material was absolutely beautiful and I loved the zipper detailing. However, I think the cut wasn't flattering on me and swallowed up my petite frame. I could see it being adorable on a non-petite person.
My personal favorite from what they had at the store, this dress is bold and original and oh so flattering. I fell in love with everything about it and knew that if I could only take home one thing, this dress would be it. Thank goodness I found the last one in my size on the dressing room rack!
When I tried this dress on I appreciated even more the sizing on this entire collection. Quite often I find the sizing a little off in a lot of the clothes Target carries but for once I felt like the sizes were consistent and didn't run too large. The top of this dress had the perfect amount of snugness and didn't feel gappy at all. I liked the bottom detailing with the drawstring that when pulled gives the dress more of a bubble hem.
Last but not least I fell in love with this beautiful metallic swimsuit with detachable straps. I can't wait for swim season!
If you're itching to see this collection for yourself (which features more pieces than I had time to try on) I suggest going into a Target store or visiting their website soon. The line is selling out fast!
