Plus, two comments from readers:

Kate recommends this top from the Victoria Beckham x Target collab: "For me, this piece as a hit! Lightweight but substantial, classy, elegant, but different, too. Good fit everywhere and long enough to wear with medium-rise jeans. This is a piece worth stalking. How its under $30.00 is beyond me!"

Meanwhile Kara echoed a common sentiment among readers: "I was not impressed by the fabric quality. Everything was pretty much double knit polyester a la 1978 and grandma's cruise collection. If you aren't a size 6, everything is going to make you feel bigger as the drape is extreme."

Have a great weekend! xxBB
