Target Fitting Room Reviews

Target is just across the street from my house, so I swing by quite often to pick up misc household items. And today, I was hoping to try on the über-licious Lace Bib Slip Dress , but alas it was not in my store. I hunted high and low just to be sure and even had customer service call the other stores . . . and none of 'em had the dress. At this point, I'm convinced it's either all sold out or just an 'online only' item. So I ended up scoping out some other Target numbers. And some of 'em were right on target.

Merona Cardigan Sweater - Black Dot. $22.99 I sized down and I adore this cardi. It made me do the polka dance and yes  . . . it came home with me today. 

Merona Artist V-Neck Cardigan Sweater - Mint Air. Also comes in Chantilly Blue. I tried this on in a size S and it fits TTS. I've been on the hunt for a mint green cardi ever since Anthroholic Kim made mint green a MUST HAVE in my wardrobe. Kim - you're bad for my wallet :)

Merona Artist V-Neck Cardigan Sweater - Natural Beige. $24.99. I sized down and tried this in a XS. I quite like the color and the delicate ruffles. Reminds me a 'lil of a J.Crew cardi. And to all the J.Crewaholics - I hope you're not blanching now :) You probably wanna roast me on spit. 

Xhilaration French Terry Military Jacket - Cream. Tried this Soldier Boy sweater jacket in a size S and it fits TTS. Also comes in black as reviewed below . . .

Xhilaration French Terry Military Jacket - Black

 Xhilaration Stripe Henley Dress - Marine Blue. Comes in several colors - Black stripes, Tapestry and Black - sans stripes. This dress is way too short to wear as a dress, but with jeans or leggings, it's halfway decent.

And lastly, here is my daughter B. She wanted me to take a pic of her dressed in her favorite frock. 

And this is what B came home with today . . . Disney Princess PJ's

And before I bid you adieu, I leave you with this beautiful song from the movie Tangled. I am a total Disnerd and I loved the movie. Finally, the old Disney is back. The music is beautiful, the storyline is sweet and heart-warming, and it brings back memories of the old fairy tales I grew up with (Beauty & the Beast, Little Mermaid, Aladdin). Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore did an awesome job, and their duet still gives me goosebumps. Who knew Zachary Levi could sing? What's your fav Disney movie?


  1. really can't tell those are target dresses when they're on you! Definitely very nice!
    BTW, I can't wait to read your book! I love chicklits!

  2. Gosh, your daughter is so pretty! I can tell that she likes all things girlie and sweet - just like mom. My hubby and I love Disneyland and were thinking of seeing that Tangled movie at some stage.
    Target in the USA appears to do cardis really well. My fave is the polka dot one and the
    Merona one in mint green (the little detail is stunning).

  3. Alright, I really think my local Targets are lacking in the cool stuff category - either that or the good stuff is being swiped as quickly as it is put down!

  4. Love that polka dot cardi! Thanks for sharing!

    I love that polka dot cardi!! I so need to get out to Target!!

  6. OMG if I had a Target across from my house I'd seriously be broke! I'm bad enough with the one that's like 10 minutes from my house. I also recently picked up the polka dot & the mint cardigans. Love them! I'm going to have to go back now and look for the J.Crew-ish cardi...

  7. I love Target and their cardis. I picked up the mint green one last week and I LOVE it! May have to go back and check out the ruffled one now!

  8. I was going to say the same about the Merona Artist cardi...JCrew! I hope you bought it...IN fact, I hope you bought everything there! I think I need to seriously find a Target near me...I would say the polka dot cardi and Disney Princess PJs are the ultimate winners :-) My fave Disney movie would be...Snow White! I liked the über old Disney films where the girls were more plump and the drawings softer <3

  9. I just went to Target's site for the Merona Artist sweater. 100% cotton and machine washable. Score! (I think a lot of the J.Crew ones were dry clean only, which I hate). I really need to get my butt to Target soon.

  10. Oh my goodness Lisa you make everything look so fantastic! And your baby girl is so beautiful!


  11. You look so cute in the Soldier Boy jacket. It has a very Anthro-esque feel, in my opinion. The Merona Artist cardi has such great details along the placket -- just lovely.

    Your daughter is absolutely adorable. So pretty in her new princess pjs. And I loved Tangled -- I saw it with 6 of my friends from high school when I went home for xmas. BF didn't understand why some many women in their mid-20s wanted to see the movies. Sometimes boys just don't get it!

  12. Wow! Abby, Meghan, Shopwithm - Thanks for leaving a comment :) It's nice to see fresh new faces.

    And Abby - I know! Having a Target across my house is like having a liquor store by an Alcoholic! So toxic!!!

    And to all the familiar faces and bloggers - I appreciate all your comments just the same :) Mucha Gracias!

  13. Ack! these are so bad for me. I want every single one of those items you tried on! I'm such a sucker for Target clothing, just because it's so affordable and the styles are just so cute.

    And I had no idea that Zachary Levi sang.. I was surprised to find out that they did the soundtrack together, since in the old Disney movies, the singing parts were always done by separate recording artists. Tangled was such a great movie (my new fave!), I'm such a disnerd too!!! :)
