$35 Eyelet Bell Sleeve Dress

Like most girls on the planet, I LOVE Target. I am definitely guilty of walking in with a list and completely forgetting about it after spending a few minutes picking up and analyzing how I could find a need for every item in the dollar section. From wandering up and down the party supply and stationery aisles to picking out another Essie nail polish shade super similar to one I already own but with a cuter name there is no hope of me escaping the store without adding something to my cart that wasn’t on my list. Usually it’s more than one thing but hey, we are all human. One recent find that I looked for every excuse to justify (does adding something to your list once it is already in your cart count?) was this adorable bell sleeve eyelet dress. For $35 I just couldn’t say no considering it looks like pieces I’ve seen for triple that price tag. It would be a disservice if I didn’t get it and share it with y’all, right? I didn’t even try it on in the store, that’s how sold I was on getting it.

After checking out and hanging it in my closet I realized the whole reason Target’s clothing section was knocking things out of the park was because of a collaboration they had with Who What Wear. This dress was part of the collaboration and after looking around Target’s site the other day I saw that not only was it available in white but it also comes in black AND a shirt form in the two color options. I am so tempted to get the shirt but since I didn’t see it while in Target I’m attempting to have a little self control.

Since purchasing this dress I’ve worn it a couple of times and love it more and more each time. I wore it over my graduation weekend to a steakhouse we went to and when I put it on I halfway felt like I should be attending my own rehearsal dinner. Once I got past that thought (definitely not getting married ANYTIME soon) and put on my favorite wedges I realized just how big of a score this dress was. At first I was a little nervous that the bell sleeves would seem a bit overwhelming but if I managed to get out of a steak dinner with a number of sauces not making their way onto their sleeves then I can officially take on the mentality that bigger really is better with these bell sleeves. The eyelet along the top is a fun added detail and was surprisingly good quality as I didn’t get my brushes bristles or my hoops caught in it while I was getting ready. Everything about this dress is a win so far and I haven’t even mentioned the best part (aside from the price, of course). This dress, from Target, for $35, is fully lined! Finding dresses that are lined nowadays proves to be a harder struggle than one may imagine but I was so impressed that this Target find didn’t skimp on that very important detail when it comes to a white dress! While I kept things pretty toned down with the way I styled it it would look equally adorable with colorful wedges or earrings to spice it up a bit.

Since not all Target stores seem to treat their clothing department equally (I’m talking to you home Target) I have included some other adorable pieces from Target’s collaboration with Who What Wear for you to shop online!
