The current Merona Collection at Target is FABULOUS! I’m going to start out w/the best pieces.
Wait…first of all, I’d categorize Merona as one of the mid-price Missy lines created for and sold only at Target. They have introduced Merona Collection, which has better made, higher priced pieces. The prices are still very low. Walk with me…
First…flashback to the Coppelle paisley san telmo jacket by J Crew from 2008.
Check out the dress in the Merona Collection
Size 4 – $44.99 – 97% cotton, 3% spandex. It’s fully lined, with polyester, of course. I took it back and got a size 2, which fits perfectly! The 4 was a little too big underneath the arms and between the shoulder & waist. What a great, great, dress. I was very impressed.
It is not available on the website in regular sizes. However, it is on the website in Plus Size .
And there is a skirt in the same fabric – $24.99.
Size 4 – The skirt is lined, which is great. The skirt didn’t feel as good fit-wise as some of the skirts by J Crew. Not that I should be comparing, but I can’t help it. I went back to the store to try a 6 and that felt a little bit better. But there is something about it that’s off for me. My junk is in the trunk, not on the side hips. So the back of the skirt kind of poked out in a weird way. I sat in the skirt for a bit to see if it would form to my body, but it didn’t. I was only sitting for a short period, though. I love the print, though. Not sure why my hand is behind my back. I am not holding the skirt.
I haven’t seen these pieces online so far. Only in-stores. I am really impressed w/the execution.Likey? No likey?Chime in…*********************************ETA — How could I forget? They also had a tunic. It was fun, but I didn’t get this one. Very cute.
