I always like at least a few Target clothing items every season, but I’ve found their spring offerings this year particularly enticing. Accordingly, I’ve bought a few items–some in store (two tops), some online (two dresses). Read on to find out my thoughts on each…
women’s printed crepe shell in green/white (floral), $16
I am on a major floral kick these days, which is kind of interesting considering I spent my teenage years loathing anything that even resembled a floral print. Anyway, I really liked the colors in this top, and I thought it was a bit more professional looking than my beloved floral tee. However, I think the colors are a bit too similar to the aforementioned tee. The fit isn’t all that flattering either.
women’s printed crepe shell in drizzle gray (polka dots), $16
Gray is fast becoming my new favorite neutral, particularly for springtime. It looks so lovely with pastels and saturated hues alike. So that was my incentive for buying this top…oh, and I also had a buy two, get $5 off coupon. This is the exact same top as above but in another print, so the fit is of the same mediocre quality. I also don’t like how it’s pretty see-through, meaning I would have to wear a layer underneath. I had envisioned wearing these tops throughout the summer, which is not a time when I want to be layering.
I recently read a review of this dress on Heidi’s blog; she seemed to like her mint version a lot, so I thought it was worth trying. I absolutely love the color–a vibrant rosy pink. However, I did not love the fit. It was much more form fitting than I had anticipated; I would feel self-conscious wearing something like this. The overall fit was also just a bit off. I couldn’t get a picture, but the zipper kind of bumped along my spine awkwardly rather than laying flat. The fit in the shoulders was also only OK. I’m not sure sizing up would solve those problems, so I think I’ll just keep looking. I’m hoping I can get this one in my size during the next flash sale!
To be honest, this dress was a last-minute add-on to qualify for a BOGO 50% off promotion. Again, I liked the floral print, but this time it’s unlike anything else I own. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this dress on. It’s very lightweight and comfortable, and the colors are quite vibrant in person. I also loved that it matched my pink heels perfectly 🙂 I don’t really need this dress, but it’s pretty cute for just $12! Depending on what else I end up buying this month, I may or may not decide to return this dress. It’s a good thing I have 90 days to decide!
