Spied: Merona Floral Cardigan

I spotted this floral cardigan at Target and it immediately reminded me of something:

Merona® Essential Cardigan Sweater - Yellow - $15.00 (Orig. $22.99)

This sweater was one of my favorite things at J.Crew back in Spring 2009:

It was originally $88. Old Navy had a similar sweater at the time, but the ON version's yellow was a bit too pastel for my taste.

What do you think of the target version? Is it something you would wear? Leave your thoughts below.


  1. Totally love it but I will say the last two Merona sweaters I've gotten have been super poor quality. They used to last a long time but they barely last a few wears now! Buyer beware.... you get what you pay for I guess! :)

  2. I think what "makes" the jcrew sweater is the vibrant yellow color.

  3. First, I love your blog. I have been following it for a while but have never commented.

    Second, I bought this cardigan (paid full price unfortunately) and I love it! I get so many compliments on in. Believe me it looks so much better in person and is easy to mix and match with.

  4. @lisa elizabeth - Thanks for taking the time to comment! And I am so glad to hear a positive review.

    Thanks again, and I hope to hear from you again,

  5. I think I like the J Crew one a little bit more, but if I really wanted it, I'd go with the Target because I can't afford J. Crew YET =]

    Just Better Together is having 2 giveaways!

  6. the target one would be a much better sell if it was worn better on the model.

  7. The Target cardi is a miss in my book. The length of the body and sleeves are too long giving it a matronly feel. And the color is not vibrant enough. Not on my shopping list.

  8. its cute but the J Crew one is so punchy, the color makes the sweater! I am interested in seeing this William Rast for Target line. Have you found any sneek peeks?

  9. hmmm... I agree - i Dont think the target one is bright enough.
    However that being said .. its not worn in the way i wanted it - i wouldn't have worn it buttoned up - but open like the other model
    SO its a probable no
    Good spot however haha!

  10. @Heidi Jo- You are totally right. Why are Target's stock photos so freaking terrible? If I had my way I would overhaul the entire apparel section of target.com, they are doing it all wrong.

  11. Of course the J.Crew sweater has better styling but honestly I don't like the color (or any of the other really bright colors they featured in that line). So, I would say I like the Target one more.
