    Model wearing white dress, stops past the thighs

    Promising review: "Cute back detail, runs a bit oversized because of the drawstring tie back. The straps are removable so it can be strapless.

Overall, it’s a really cute white summer dress." —Target Reviewer

I got my first office job, and my normal day clothes can be quite revealing. This is a perfect piece that balances the chic, still very feminine shape since it shows leg, but the babydoll style of this dress is so cute. The balance between the longer sleeves/covered up chest/babydoll shape and the shorter cut is my go-to for looking cute at work." —Vivian
