Double-Take: Merona vs. J. Crew's madras mini
As I’ve blogged before, designers are still mad for plaid, and we’re sure to be seeing a lot of it this Spring and Summer. And with warmer weather comes the perennial fabric favorite – madras – which I think is a fun way to inject plaid into your wardrobe without looking too “90’s grunge”.
So I did a double-take when I saw this Merona madras patchwork skirt (shown) in Target’s Weekly ad, because it’s almost identical to J. Crew’s "Oceana" patchwork mini from last year! However, the Merona skirt is on sale this week for just $14.99… which is really a steal, considering that the J. Crew version was probably upwards of $50.
