A big big thanks to Fabulous Florida Mommy for her regular blog feature, "You Look Familiar... Have I Seen You Some Place Before?" I instantly fell in love with this skirt from Target that resembles J. Crew Porcelain Paisley Skirt from 2012. I had regrets last year about not buying that skirt. However, I must admit that I had passed on several opportunities to buy it because of the high price and the material (it is the kind that snags.) The Target version is a more machine-wash friendly material AND it is lined! Plus, you can't go wrong for $22.99.
Given the great price, I also wanted the navy blue polka dot version, which is the same style and brand (Merona). I had seen this skirt in J. Crew Factory but I never fell in love with it -- maybe because it wasn't lined. Skirt lining is not a 'deal breaker' for me when it comes to skirts, but again, I just didn't love J. Crew's version. This polka dot skirt was also $22.99. Actually, it was even less for me because Target had sent coupons in the mail giving me $5 off a $35 apparel purchase plus I took advantage of the 5% off total using the Target card. I'm pretty excited about these skirts. If all this snow in New Jersey melts away soon, I might get to debut one of the skirts next week with a bright colored top (I'm thinking hot pink, coral orange, or almost neon yellow.)
If you like either of these skirts, I would advise you to act fast. They are not available online and the store I went to had a limited size selection on the rack.
Have you bought any great apparel purchases from Target lately? What do you think of these two skirts?
