Would Emma Wear It? - Merona Cardigan and Skirt

Now that LOST is over, the Dharma Initiative should set up shop in the clothing section at Target, because there's clearly a strong electromagnetic force at work there. I can't not browse, even if I really only went there for dish detergent.

The bright colors of these new Merona pieces caught my eye, and the whimsical swirly patterns seemed quirky enough for Emma, but may be a bit too contemporary for her style. (Obviously she wouldn't wear the skirt and cardigan together.)


Merona Collection Paige Cardigan Sweater - $29.99



Merona Collection Monica Pencil Skirt - $24.99

So what do you think? Emma-worthy or not?

I think the skirt MAYBE (but it seems a bit short for Emma) but idk about the cardi. I think you're right, it does seem a bit too contemporary for her. It doesn't scream "EMMA PILLSBURY" at me like so many items do.


Wearing the skirt and cardi together would be a recipe for sexy, no? :P

The cardi might be a little much but I can totally see her rocking out that skirt! Perhaps with an insane blouse! Im all for it

Danielle said...

Hahahahahah Teresa! Recipe for sexy: 1 part swirly cardi, 1 part swirly skirt. Mix.

Eh, I'm on the fence. Like Teresa said, it doesn't scream Emma. But paired with the right items, I think she might be able to pull it off.

Emma's just so darn cute and sexy that she could totally pull off pairing the skirt and the cardi together :P

No way - too much happening at the same time and the colors don't match.
Emma can do better than this.

Elissa said...

I don't really like either piece. She seems to like more simpler items. Also, that skirt is a bit too short for Emma's taste.

You know who i could see wearing the cardi and skirt together, complete with the cardigan buttoned wonky?
Brenda Castle. She's just got that kind of crazy happenin'.

Danielle said...

YES! Brenda! You're brilliant!

Teresa said...

HAHA!! YES BRENDA!!! LOL!

vacantmuse said...

i think we might need a Brenda fashion challenge - for all those pieces just a bit too crazy for Emma, but not twee enough for Rachel!
I think my computer might explode if i try and use polyvore at work, but i'll damn well try XD

Danielle said...

That's funny. I can actually see her in the cardigan, but not the skirt. Ah, the human mind...

Permanent Rose said...

Brenda fashion challenge! This NEEDS to happen :P

Emma said...

Brenda challenge? I'm in.
And, I think Emma might rock the cardigan with a yellow skirt.. or maybe the skirt with the insane yellow blouse.. yes?

Jesslyn said...

She MIGHT wear the cardigan. I can see it with other really conservative pieces.

Barbee said...

Funny, first I thought it would be the cardigan, but when I saw the skirt I thought she'd wear it if it were longer...I'm sure she has a fantastic tailor who could make it work. Then again, she might not be ok with anyone else touching the clothes that are going to touch HER skin. I could see her having some decent sewing skills.

Courtney said...

She would probably pull off the cardi with a nice sedate skirt, but I think there are definitely more Emma-esque items out there. Good question, though!!

Heather said...

I think she could rock the cardigan. Am I mad? (In a coma? Or back in time? heh) It kinda reminds me of the Anthropologie Clinging Blossoms cardi. Don't know why.

Adie said...

I think she could pull off the cardi but the skirt is too short for her... to be honest I don't think she's a very swirly type person, more bows and flowers and insane bows.

I think the print is just a little too big. Otherwise, I'd say the skirt if it was longer. I need to study Brenda's wardrobe more!

AmyB said...

Russet JCrew skirt..armani bow blouse...favorite gold Mary janes. Absolutley. I would polyvore it if I weren't bedridden and had a laptop. Get on it Danielle!!

Tracie said...

I actually have that skirt! :) I love the skirts and cardigans they are putting out lately!
