Such was the case when I tried on dresses the other day at where else? Target.
- Merona Women's High-Low Hem Sundress $24.99 This dress reminds me of Lily Pulitzer but more sporty. I like the stripe detailing mixed with the tropical print, this season's most stylish pattern. I also appreciate the tie waist which allows for a more flattering custom fit.
- Xhilaration Juniors Eyelet Shift Dress $24.99 Meet the dress that came home with me except I opted for cream. I have been searching for a white lace dress and thought this was the perfect choice because it can be worn casual or to the office. Despite being a juniors dress the fit is more generous and okay for those of us with hips.
- Mossimo Women's Pleated Knit Dress $27.99 This dress has been on my mind non-stop since I left Target. First, you know I am currently obsessed with leaf print. Second, the gathering at the front is draped so well that the dress looks designer. It would look amazing under a black blazer at work.
- Merona Women's Kimono Sleeve Maxi Dress $29.99 Maxi dresses are officially on my "do not buy" list but this dress may be the exception. The description is kimono but I think it feels a little Grecian with the crossover top and empire waist. What I like about this dress is the hem is not all the way to the floor intentionally so when paired with heels, for once, I don't look like I am prepping for a flood.
The common theme among these dresses is I feel like the quality is exceptional for the price. There isn't any sacrifice when it comes to fit or fabric which is key when shopping on a budget. Add beautiful jewels, a smart clutch and stylish sandals to really escalate the look of each dress.
CCTip: Because not every Target carries the same clothes, they have a wonderful "find in store" button on their website that helps narrow down your target destinations and saves you time searching.
