All of the shift dresses caught my eye when the first Lilly for Target lookbook was released, and I could not believe the prices. $38? Insane. Especially when compared to the prices of original Lilly, whose shift dresses run from about $178 to $198.
But, out of all of the patterns, My Fans was one of my favorites and I knew I had to have it. This one was an online exclusive so I was determined to grab this when the website went live. Luckily, everything worked out and I was able to get it!
The pattern of this shift dress is so pretty. I love the bright blues and pinks, and anything with seashells is an automatic win in my opinion. The crochet detailing down the front of the dress is also beautiful. But what surprised me the most about this piece was the quality. This dress is so nice for $38. I honestly can’t tell a difference between it and some of my original Lilly dresses made of a similar material. The hem length is also great. I was worried about it being too short considering that I’m 5’9″, but this hits me about mid thigh, which is typically what I prefer.
I was a little worried about the sizing, so I did size up in everything that I purchased. I heard that this was going to be based off of Target’s sizing, and not Lilly’s. Target’s clothing, while cute, fits me very small. I’m typically a four or a six in Lilly, but I purchased this dress in an eight. I’m glad I did because it fits perfectly. It could be taken in a tad at the waist, but it fits well enough on its own.
Also the pineapple zipper pull?! I’m obsessed.
