Merona for Target Spring 2011 Collection

Here is a look at Merona for Target Spring 2011 collection. Since Target bought out Zellers, I figure that it's appropirate to do a post on it. The palette for the spring collection is light with simple patterns. Lots of white, olive and khacki colors and and while it is more on the casual side it is still put together.

I have yet to understand how Target fashion is widely accepted and how Walmart gets the shaft. It seems that buying clothes at Target is great but you would never tell people you bought your clothes at Walmart, like you wouldn't tell people you cry after doing it. Even if you cried because you suddently remember how awful The Lion King II is compare to the original, or how you missed Tooney Tuesday at KFC because it took too long, or how unlike Charlie Sheen, your dude isn't going to write you a 30,000 cheque after you have sex with him... Hey, just saying that IT HAPPENS.

  2. I don't really care for any of those looks. It looks boring to me. Summer is happy, I like to wear bright colors :)

  3. These are really cute looks, especially the patterned pieces. Re. Target vs. Walmart: It's probably because Target is often associated with the big-name designers who do collaborations with them and therefore superior design. When was the last time a respectable designer (not a celebrity) announced they were collaborating with Walmart?

  6. Heh... maybe it's the type of style Target carries that Wal-mart lacks? I'm guilty of checking out the Miley Cyrus Max Azria line at Wal-mart but a lot of the clothes Wal-mart carries is just not figure flattering.

  7. I do like the cowlneck top over the swimsuit option - and the denim dress is cute, too. I am a Wal-Mart hater (destroyer of small town America and employees lives), but I don't exactly love Target either! I totally get what you're saying though!!

  8. I just boycott Walmart altogether (mostly because of their employment discrimination practices regarding women) but I also honestly just think the Target lines are a bit more fashion forward than the Walmart ones.

  10. Merona is hit or miss for me. Sometimes it'll fit and look good other times it doesn't. I'll give the new collection a try definitely tho! =)

  15. im not gonna lie but walmart has really pretty dresses for juniors ! i've been tempted to buy some but i don't think i would be using dresses anytime soon :[

    and YES... I do get a little embarrassed about telling people that my clothes would be from walmart... though... i only have one. and i would never wear that shirt at walmart. gawd.. you have a point though... it's OKAY to say that it's from target but walmart is another story XD i officially have a different view about this subject! thanks julie!

  16. I haven't purchased any clothing from Walmart either, but they do have some cute clothing. I am mostly too busy getting groceries to stop and try something on, but I would definitely not be ashamed to tell someone I got something from there. I totally know what you mean about people being ashamed. It is really weird.

  17. That's called excellent marketing and branding! You're right! It's totally the same thing, but all the marketing and branding makes us consumers believe we're cool for shopping at Target. Whoever did that is a freakin' genius!!

    BTW -I haven't been commenting as lately because you don't have the Name/ Address option for your comments and I can't comment without signing into Google (which is blocked at work). Anyways, maybe you can make the exception, just for moi and get the name/ address thingy :)

  18. hehe ,, i wish we had a target ,, seems fun and they do bring cool stuff ,, sigh ,, my aunt went to the states last summer and one thing she said ,," i'd be really happy if we had one target here "

    -__- ,, i trust my aunt's judgment because she is picky in everything ,, and since she enjoyed her 1st target experience ,, i think i would too =D

  20. Possibly the only reason on why people don't want to admit shopping at Walmart: http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/?page_id=9798

    Haha.

    Love the color palette of the Merona collection.

  22. The thing about Walmart is actually so true. These pieces here are alright, I guess...a bit plain. Good if you just need clothes, but not really good to build a fashionable wardrobe.

  23. True, I wouldn't tell anyone about it... even if its Target too. It will just be my only secret... But I see the US is heading into summer wear, while I've seen some autum wear coming out here down under!

  25. I think most of this collection is pretty wearable except for the granny panties...I don't think those will ever appeal to me.
