Fab Find: Merona Sweater Dress
In the Fall/Winter, I adore wearing sweater dresses. Nothing could be easier than throwing one on with tights and boots. The problem is that I'm allergic to wool, cashmere, mohair and angora... which are usually added to sweater dresses to make them "warmer". So I'm constantly on the hunt for cozy sweater dresses minus these offending fibers.
I've seen this Merona Cowl Neck Sweater Dress on the Target racks for several weeks now, but didn't bother to try it on until this weekend. It fits like a dream, and its blend of cotton/rayon/nylon makes it super-soft without being bulky. Target's web site only has it left in Charcoal Gray (as shown, which is the color I bought) and Hunter Green, but it also comes in a Camel color. If you're interested, check for it in stores, as I got mine for 30% off (whereas the web site still lists this dress as full price). Also: disregard Target's note that this item is "not available in stores". This is probably my BIGGEST gripe with Target's new site; they tag almost EVERYTHING with this disclaimer, and it's simply not true.
