Victoria Beckham X Target Review

April 9, 2017

Well if you’ve been a reader for awhile, you know whenever there’s a Target designer collaboration, I’m going to be waiting at the doors at 8AM when my local store opens to see what’s what!

I’m super happy with this cute orange “Circus Scallops” top that I got, but there were some disappointments also.

My biggest disappointment is that all of the dresses were soooo short! Come on Victoria, you could’ve put a knee-length, midi, or maxi in the mix, right?

Here’s all my super bad dressing rooms selfies, with some comments on each about fabric, fit and sizing.

This is one of the dresses I had my eye on.  It was way too short, I didn’t like the fabric, and it had bunnies on the collar, which I never noticed in the photo. A big no for me anyway! Wearing size small, which was a little tight across my hips.

This floral dress was made of really nice scuba fabric and a very cute cut, but again WAY too short for me. Small fit, except for the length.

A drop waist dress in black and tomato red. Super cute, but who looks good in drop waists?  No really … I want to know … who?!

Drop waist with lily print.  True to size.

I decided to try a medium dress. The length was a little bit better, but still too short and definitely too big! I really liked this appliqué though and the fabric was nice.

This orange dress had really nice fabric, though the zipper kept sticking.  And it kind of reminded me of the Flintstone’s!  The small was too big on top.

The shirts  all seemed to run really large.  This button down shirt with the bee print was huge and this is an XS!

This navy sweatshirt was super cute and good quality.  Be sure to size down. This XS fits like a M.

Cute gingham top! If they had an XS I would’ve tried it, but the small was way too big.

I wish they had had the full collection at my Target so I could’ve tried on everything!

Oh and by the way. I don’t have any kids to shop for, but I glanced at the baby and girls outfits and they were super adorable.

Did you buy anything, Dolls? Let me know!

    I thought the collection was a bit to whimsical for me .. but glad I got to see these items ‘in action’ on your blog. I do like your first pick ~ the orange top with scallop white edges is super cute.

    Monica.

      I don’t think the collection is particularly pear-shaped friendly, Monica! I know you can relate! 😉

      • Reply MonicaP April 10, 2017 at 6:29 am

        True! Straight dresses and peplum tops aren’t often pear shape friendly. I also really liked the navy top with the applique flowers ~ quite cute !

        Glad you did this post ( saved me time/money 🙂

        Monica.

          Hee … glad to help! The navy sweatshirt was really cute, the material was nice and the applique was pretty. I don’t do much navy, so I wasnt that tempted. If it had been black and white, I bet it would’ve come home with me! 😀

    Love he sweatshirt and the bee top. Will def seek those out! You look fab, as usual!

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 9, 2017 at 3:21 pm

      The sweatshirt and bee shirt were both really cute and nice quality for the price, Rina!

    YOU are adorable! I love you in all of these- even the drop waist. You look fab! XO

      Aww you’re too sweet. Thanks so much, Laura. My dressing room expressions are so silly!:D

    The top you bought is super cute, Dawn!!
    Considering I’m lucky if I measure 5’2″, then I’m thinking this stuff is right up my alley!! I may have to go check it out!

      You know what? At 5’2″ this collection is probably perfect for you, Jodie! OXOX

      It would probably be fabulous on you, Patti!

  • Reply Nicole April 9, 2017 at 5:40 pm

    Be happy that there is a target at all near you! These dresses would be awesome if they would just invest in 3-4 inch more fabric. We don’t run after 4 kids. Thus our legs aren’t able to bear the short length.

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 4:52 am

      Haha …. that’s true! 4 inches of more fabric would’ve totally made a huge difference to me!

  • Reply Sue Burpee April 9, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    It’s odd that the dresses are all so short, don’t you think? Considering that VB always seems to be so chic…and in longer skirts more often than not. And bunnies on the collar??? Really?

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 4:51 am

      Haha .. I know, right? WTH?!!

  • Reply Kaku's Corner April 9, 2017 at 8:25 pm

    I had my eye on this collection and was able to pick up a few things at my local Target. The quality is really good, with lots of nice detailing. All of the items I bought fit my frame, although some may have been a little short but that was probably the look that VB was going for.Also I really wanted the long pants, but the fit on them was poor – loose around the waist and tight on the thighs. Overall I think this is a great collection.

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 4:55 am

      Thanks for the fit advice about the pants! I wanted to try those, but they didn’t have them in our Target. Let me know what you get!

  • Reply Lisa April 9, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    Yes, waaaaay too whimsical… cute “Mommy and me” line… super bummed. I wish she would have done a line that resembled what she actually wears!

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 4:56 am

      Yes, it ended up being big on Mommy & me Easter outfits!

  • Reply Mica April 10, 2017 at 5:15 am

    Oh this is a nice collection! Although it’s a shame you were so unimpressed with much of it, they are very pretty designs! Especially that floral dress! I don’t think it looks too short in the photos, but everyone has a different length they like in dresses 🙂

      I’m sure the dresses would look adorable on you, Mica!!

  • Reply Malia April 10, 2017 at 8:34 am

    Dawn I am so with you on the too short. I’m 6feet tall some of those items were too short to even be tops.

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 9:04 am

      I tried on what I thought we a pretty orange top and it ended up being a romper! LOL. I didn’t even put THAT photo in my blog! Haha!

  • Reply Kate April 10, 2017 at 10:35 am

    I tried on so much and there were plenty of hits and misses. First, I can’t picture Victoria Beckham wearing any of this, so that gave me pause.The patterns and appliques are no “signature” that they’ll get old fast. And, everyone will be wearing them. When you see more than one person wearing head-to-toe calla lilies, you know it’s toast! I found fit issues were a problem throughout the collection. The long black pants were a huge disappointment as they were cut without any room for actual hips-very specific body type only. The matching top was really nice. I too found the dresses to be impossibly short and in particular, the few skirts were insanely short. The lace dress fit well and was long enough, but a mint-green lace dress? I know it’s a near-prefect replica of her expensive one, but the color? Same for the pink damask pieces which seemed very Amal Clooney but felt like cheap tablecloth material. What I did like (and bought)) were the white long sleeve shirt (very elegant), the scarves (nice fabric-could have done without the writing on them), the navy blue applique sweatshirt, and the gingham dress. The sleeeve on that dress are a bit strange, but it’s cute and summery. I’ve ordered two online only pieces (a sweater and a jacket)–we’ll see! Thanks for your excellent review!

      Hi Kate! Thanks for stopping by the blog and the great comment. I agree … no room for hips in most of the pieces! Oh, and yes, I forgot to mention the skirts. So short that I didn’t even try them on. The navy sweatshirt was one of my fav pieces. And my store didn’t have the gingham dress! I wanted to try that on. The pastel dresses didn’t make it to our Target either. And one last giggle for you … I thought I was trying on an orange top, but it ended up being a romper! Soooo short!! lol! I tried it on for a laugh, but couldn’t bring myself to add that photo to the post!! 😉

    I love it when you do a Target review! Wow I think I would want all those cute dresses! I have to go check them out. Peace! Cheryl Tucker

      Hee … aww thanks, Cheryl! The dressing room selfies are always good for a laugh if nothing else! 😉

  • Reply LauriePOP2 April 10, 2017 at 12:49 pm

    Ugh so frustrating! The red looks great in photos. Helps so much to b able to try on in person before buying. Thx for the work!

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 10, 2017 at 1:23 pm

      You’re so welcome! So many people on IG are telling me the orange/red dress looks great on me that I have to remind myself that in person it really really didn’t! 😛

  • Reply Suzanne April 10, 2017 at 4:21 pm

    Been on vacation this week, I was unable to get in and try any of the pieces on so thank you for modeling them for us. I do love a drop waist dress, but what is up with the length of all the dresses? That’s a nonstarter for me as well. I do love the orange top you got I think it’s perfect on you. And the Flintstone dress looks like it had potential. I heard from a few readers that they love the kids stuff so maybe that’s where it was really at with this launch. Thanks for all your photos love him!

      The kids stuff was really cute! The Flintstone dress was kinda fun! OXOX

  • Reply Welcome Objects April 10, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    I agree the dresses were too short! Didn’t even try on the skirts. Even at 5′ 3″ I wanted them to be longer. Here’s how it looks on a petite: https://welcomeobjects.com

    OMG! How is it possible! I am publishing this Friday a post about VB and mentioned that Target sells her collection now. Note: I live in the Netherlands were they never heard of Target. I am sorry. I don t want to hear anything bad about VB!😂😂😂😂

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 11, 2017 at 4:24 pm

      Haha … well it wasn’t all bad! I love my little orange top! And if you’re petite, the dresses are probably the perfect length!

  • Reply Melissa @thekeytochic April 13, 2017 at 6:34 am

    Cute! I feel lucky. I snagged all my favorites online and shopped early Sunday morning. Since I’m petite, I didn’t have the issue with dress length. I tried on some Girls’ pieces, too. Loved the prints for girls, especially the bunny and tea party! The English floral prints and black twill trousers were hits for me. I am excited for my online order to arrive this week. Here’s a look at my fitting room review. http://www.thekeytochic.com/2017/04/victoria-beckham-for-target-review.html

    I think the white long sleeved blouse is exceptional. I also love the scarves.

    Dawn, you look great in everything. I saw it last weekend. It is whimsical but I still think Victoria Beckham is the bomb. I really liked the children’s collection!!! I’m about to be a grandma !! Happy Easter!! XO Debby Allbright

    Such a thorough and wonderful recap of Victoria’s line. Everything of hers I bought I actually ordered online. I have all dresses 3 thru 6 that you tried on. I wish my own Target had the scalloped orange+white top you got though. But I may still order it. You might be quite tall because on my 5.6′ figure all the dresses’ lengths were fine. The asymmetric dress I found it big on top too, though I wear a C cup but it was still too cute for me to pass on. I wish I had seen the gingham top though but I’d probably needed an XS too. I also bought 4 dresses and a set for my daughter as well, a couple of those to match with mine. Overall, it was one of my most favorite collaborations and the dresses were very nicely made for the price of 35-40 bucks each.

    BTW I linked the Calla Lilly Dress and a VBxTarget Dress my daughter wore on your latest linkup, today. Come take a peek. 😉 Thanks.
