I have never been big on buying clothes at Target. I would LOVE to though since their clothes are cute and the price point is right, but I'm slightly too tall that everything looks like it went through the dryer a littttttle too hot. Lord knows that hasn't stopped me from trying though - I'm constantly hoping that their v-neck cardigans would sit right on me or that I can get their fun patterned button-ups to work on me, but they never do.
I was so pumped when I found this dress earlier in the summer (seen here), and I immediately purchased it in two patterns. At the time, I also tried on a light weight white with black stripes tee shirt dress that I thought would be perfect for the summer - cotton, my favorite pattern, long enough short sleeves - the summer trifecta. I HATED it on me. HATED IT. The fabric was too clingy, you could see my belly button through the material, and no amount of nude underwear was going to prevent people from seeing my butt cheeks. Since I was used to the Target disappointment I didn't think too much of it....until today when I found the same dress in a different pattern. Still has all the things I want, but without all the things I didn't want.
The perfect summer dress....no longer online but probably in stores, so run, don't walk.
