Target x Who What Wear: The Summer Statement Dress

I love a good statement dress. It doesn't have to be a ball gown or a cocktail dress to make a statement - it can be something you can wear any day - as long as it turns heads!

I found this gorgeous ruffle wrap dress while on a girl's day trip to Seattle. We didn't do a ton of clothing shopping - mostly food eating - but we did pop into Ross Dress for Less and Target. Being from Canada, we need to cross the border to get a chance to shop these fine retail establishments (sadly Target Canada had a very short lived time here before pulling out). It actually kind of funny watching us shop in Target. You'd think we'd never been in a store before. We get all giddy walking up and down the aisles, picking out flavours of candy we don't get back at home, ogling over home decor, and piling clothes into our buggies to try on.

While browsing the clothing section, I spotted a clothing collaboration with online fashion publication Who What Wear. The collaboration had all kinds of pretty pieces, but this particular Target x Who What Wear ruffle wrap dress caught my eye. It was long - something I wouldn't usually go for in the middle of summer, but the ruffles along the trim were such a sweet detail. That and the bow tied across the waist. And then I noticed the sleeves: petal-like bell sleeves, how cute!

A dress like this is great to have in your arsenal during the summer. It's a bit more exciting that your average cotton sundress, making it an excellent choice for patio parties and the like. On the day we shot this look, I walked across downtown on my way home and was surprised to receive compliments from 3 separate people on this dress. It really is something unique! It was quite a scorcher that day, but the wrap-style of the dress billowed a bit in the wind, keeping me nice and cool (not to mention giving an awesome 'walking down the runway' look!).

I've linked the exact dress down at the bottom of this post, as well as a few other similar ones in case you're looking for this dress in a shorter style.
