Target Promotion: *15% Off* Saturday Only

Happy Weekend Everyone! I wanted to let you know that Target is offering 15% off on Clothing, Baby stuff, Home Updates, and more with code XAN6PTS9 at checkout. (A lot of the merchandise on the website qualifies for FREE SHIPPING on orders of $50+, too.) The offer expires TODAY though, so shop quickly if you plan to take advantage of it.

Target continues to offer some really great clothing pieces at decent prices, not to mention some really great *look-a-likes*. I've blogged quite a bit about my Target finds and thought I would share some of my clothing picks for the promo, as well as a couple *review recaps* with you. :)

First up:
***The Merona® Elbow Sleeve Shirtdress from Target retails for $24.99, and comes in size XSmall-XXLarge. Specifics from the Target website:

* Sizing and Fit: Women Sizing with a Classic Fit
* Material: 97 % Cotton, 3 % Spandex

I purchased this in Black, size XSmall and absolutely love it! It is extremely comfortable to wear, and I really think it looks and feels more expensive than $25.

Here it is on me:

This is how I wore it on 6.12.10 for our trip over to the beach:

The Details:

The Merona® Shirtdress also comes in a color called LT OD, which is an olive/*army* green IRL. There is also a Shirred-Waist Shirtdress in Brown (aka Khaki), as well as Brown Dot. I'm not sure why these colors have a different name, but from the online pic and description they appear to be the same as the Elbow Sleeve Shirtdress.

(In the picture above, I removed the black tie-belt that came with the dress and replaced it with my J.Crew Roughed-Out Leather Belt, similar here and here.)

*Converse® One Star® Bengal Stripe Dress in Blue and Antique Grey. I have this one in Antique Grey. It's a great little day dress and very cute IRL, too.
*Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Scallop Hem Dress. I have this one and get tons of compliments every time I wear it.
*Merona® Sundress in Ebony Print. This one also comes in a Blue Print as well as Plum and Pond Green
*Mossimo® Black Crossover Empire Dress in Navy. It also comes in Ebony, Aqua, Purple, and Spanish Brown.

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.

*Merona® Women's 3/4 Sleeve Flower Cardigan Sweater in Lilac. It also comes in Yellow and

*Mossimo® Black Striped Boyfriend Cardigan which comes in Navy/White Combo and Oatmeal/White Combo

*Mossimo® Black Bermuda Short 
*Merona® Denim Jacket

The description on the website reads:

* Sleeve Style: Short Sleeve with a Kimono
* Back Style: V Back

Here it is on me in the XSmall:
I love this comfy and casually chic. I fell in love with the Lemlem® Lucy patio dress the moment I saw it but just didn't love the price, so this is my less-expensive alternative. The fabric is incredibly soft and the overall silhouette of the dress is flattering to all body types.

*Chandelier Turquoise Bib Necklace. I saw this in the store the other day and it is quite lovely and very flattering on the neckline.

 Have a beautiful and blessed day!



  1. FFM- A day late, but the Lands End Canvas stuff looks great. I ordered a bunch of things and bought a bunch of things in their store in Oakbrook, IL. Its so cute--its in Sears, but you feel like you are an actual store. I just wish they would have done more styling suggestions in the store.

    This really was a test line and I am sure more goodies are headed for the fall. I enjoy reading your blog. Keep featuring LE Canvas.

  2. Hi,

    I went to Target and bought the black shirt dress when you first posted it. You look so adorable in it! I also found the Steve Madden leopard sandals like you showed, even though they were from last year. I have shopping resources! :) I'll see what else I can find on the 15% off. Thanks for showing us your cute ideas! Alie

  3. Thanks for posting this! I am going to give the black shirt dress a try, along with a couple pairs of flats.

  4. You always look great. Thanks for sharing irl pics. I have the black shirtdress as well & agree that it's a great piece. I ordered the maxi dress you featured and a tote I've had my eye on. I can justify yet another tote w/the 15%. ;-)

  5. as if I needed another reason to run to Target :) THanks FFM.

  6. Those fabulous Palani sandals that sold out earlier this spring are back in both natural and black. They are a great buy full price, even better with 15% off!

  7. Thanks for posting pics. Will try the black dress too :)) Happy weekend FFM! You really are FAB!!! :)))
