FFM's Fabulous Find: Merona Tatiana Mary Jane Pumps in Blush

I recently happened across a Fabulous pair of shoes at Target, while searching for the Leopard print flats that had been discussed on JCA. They are called the Merona Tatiana Mary Jane Pump in Blush, and are on sale at Target.com for $17.49, but were only $8.74 in the store. They are very similar in appearance to the J.Crew Spectator Mary Jane in Dusty Rose, except they are smooth, without the extra detailing the J.Crew pair have. They are a pretty pale pink that looks beautiful with the Chiffon Rosette Tee in Blush, as well as the Jackie Cardigan in Shell (not pictured). They aren't a perfect match, but they do *go*. :) To top it all off...they are comfortable, too!
The Target.com description:

*Build Your Outfit from the Ground Up with these Mary Jane Pumps Featured in Light Pink
*Faux Patent Leather Upper with Thermoplastic Rubber Outsoles
*3.25" Wrapped Heel
*Features Buckle with Flirty Peep Toe
*Tagless Footbed, Cushioned Insole for Long-Term Comfort, Non-Skid Tread on Toe and Heel



Since the new Spring Arrivals aren't online yet, I took a pictue of the outfit I plan to wear with the tee and shoes. The jeans are Gap Essentials (the leg appears wider in the pic than they actually are IRL), and I have them rolled up at the bottom. I am contemplating distressing them myself to recreate the look of the J.Crew Distressed Vintage Jean. The necklaces are the Twisted Crystal necklace from J.Crew, and the 72" Endless Simulated Pearl Necklace from KJL. The bracelet is the J.Crew Rectangular-Link Bracelet, and the purse is from Banana Republic in beautiful Cream colored Leather. I will be wearing Diamond Studs (not shown).



*UPDATE: New Arrivals are now online at JCrew.com, so I created a set on Polyvore for this outfit. I also experimented with distressing the jeans, as well: *Do It Yourself* Denim Distressing .

  1. Cute! I saw these the other day, gotta love Target.

    Did you see the Merona necklaces and bracelets with the faux pearls/brooch (does that even make sense) Very much reminded me of J.Crew and I'm going to purchase the black/red/purple bracelet tonight.

  4. Okay, I need to get to Target tomorrow - I'd go right now if we snowed in under a foot of snow!!!

  5. If you are successful in distressing the jeans, show us pics and how to do it! I am guessing that dragging them around town tied to the back of the minivan is not the best way...
    Love the shoes!

  6. I agree with SallyO - please show us pics of the jeans you plan to distress AND how to do that! I would love to have that look myself. LOVED your blog entry about "shopping your closet". You are such an inspiration! Keep up the great work!

  7. FFM are there many of those rosette T's left in the Orlando store? I would need a S or M, I think I would like the pink. It looks so cute in your picture. I'm trying to decide if I should drive over there tomorrow. Thanks!

  8. Oh I love those with the tee! thanks for the heads up, I will look for them next time I'm at Target

  9. Hi Anon@9:55! Thanks! I really like the tee a lot. I'm not sure if there are anymore of the S and M tees left. The quantity was starting to dwindle when I was there last Saturday. I would suggest calling first thing in the morning. Someone is usually there around 9am, and they'll be able to check for you. The number is 407-226-9732. Good luck!

  10. Hi Girls! I will definitely post if I figure out a way to recreate the Distressed look...too bad my 5 year old can't wear them outside to play. He has 2 pair of jeans that he has perfectly distressed all on his own! ;)

  13. Too cute! What store is KJL? or does KJL stand for something? We must not have them up here in the Pacific NW.

  14. Hi Katrina! KJL stands for Kenneth Jay Lane, and the pearls are currently sold at Bluefly as well as QVC. Have a great night! :)

  19. I looked for these shoes after you mentioned them on Slastena's blog yesterday. What a great find! Also, the great handbag too. I am always looking for alternatives for J.Crew since I can't always afford their prices. Thanks for the bargain hunting inspiration! Off to hunt now!

  20. FFF,

    Is the chiffon tshirt from JCrew from last season? I tried to find it but no luck. Somehow I missed it. Darn!

  21. Hi Three Boy Joys! The tee is from the new Spring arrivals that are available online now: Click Here . Have a wonderful afternoon! :)

  22. Oh...the links still aren't working. Try typing in 13126 in the Search box. That's the item number for the tee.

  23. Thanks, FFM-I know, I was so pleased! And even more pleased when I saw your review last night because I definitely admire your style. :) I may have to try that bag as well!

  24. I love FFM's Fabulous Finds! Great idea. I tried these shoes on and for some reason they didn't work for me, but very, very cute. And such a great bargain. Anytime I go to Target, I always stroll through the clothing & shoe areas juuust in case.
