The Merona® Collection *Kendall* Embroidered Dress from Target

Happy Friday Everyone! I have another dress option for you to see from Target. It's the *Merona® Collection Kendall Embroidered Dress which retails for $39.99 and comes in numerical sizes which I believe to be 0-18, although only sizes 2-14 are available online right now.

* Closure Style: Zip and Hook Side Closure(s)
* Hem Style: Finished Hem(s)
* Garment Detail: Fully Lined, Front Darts, Embroidered Detail

Here it is on me in size 2:

As with most items at Target, this dress is so much prettier IRL than it is on the Target website. I love the color...Black and White together just happens to be one of my favorite color combinations. The dress is cotton and the weight of it is substantial, yet the fabric still feels soft to the touch, making the dress comfortable to wear. The embroidery is absolutely lovely, and the dress is completely lined, as well. This one can easily be dressed up with heels, or worn more casually with flats...another perfect little dress for summer.

A big THANK YOU to laurie_miw who let us know that there is a 20% Merona coupon in both the May InStyle and May Real Simple magazines (may be in other mags as well). The online code is MRNADSP. I did a mock checkout and it worked for me, so hopefully it will continue to work for others, as well. :) 

Several more Black and White dress options:

What do you think about the Kendall Embroidered Dress? Have you seen it IRL? Do you already own it? Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. :)

Have a beautiful and blessed day!



  1. I love dresses from Merona, they really are great quality for the price. I got the white eyelet dress, and the olive green shirtdress a while back, and love them both. There is a 20% Merona coupon in the May InStyle, and Real Simple magazine (may be in other mags as well). The online code from mine is MRNADSPT that someone may be able to use. Target is also having a "buy more get more" right now. The Kendall looks great on you!

  2. Thanks Laurie! I just updated the post with the code you shared. :)

  3. Looks so pretty on you especially with those fab arms!! Reminds me a bit of this Abigail dress I got at Target a few months back!

  4. Thanks Peggy! I remember when you got that dress...what a fabulous deal! Your Target has such amazing markdowns. :)

  5. Very pretty, now I wish we had a target as well as J Crew.

  6. Just wanted to say that I LOVE the IRL pics. They are so helpful since most of the times items fit/look different than the online pic. Keep up the FAB blog FFM!

  7. You look adorable! I love the little keyhole neckline. And I agree with you that a lot of Target pieces look better IRL than on the website -- I wonder what they're thinking when they shoot those product shots!

  8. very pretty! thanks for the nice review :)

  9. Very pretty. My sister got a Merona maxi (lined cotton & not a jersey knit material) in red & white which looks amazing on her. I would have passed it by in the store, but it's so pretty IRL.

  10. Very pretty,I love the little keyhole neckline.

  11. Bad Target photography strikes again! I wouldn't ever had looked at that dress (online at least), without seeing your great IRL pics. It looks so adorable, thanks for sharing!
