Hello Fashion Lovers!
This post is dedicated to one of the ubiquitous fashion lines designed by a celebrity for the discount department stores like Walmart, Kmart, Target, and Kohls. The vast majority of these lines are crap and should not be bothered with unless for the most trendy and fleeting pieces. It really is shocking to me some of the garbage that modern celebrities put their name on, like cheap fabrics, gaudy colors, poor tailoring, and styles that don’t flatter anyone’s figure. Often such clothes are ill-fitting and uncomfortable.
There are always a few exceptions to the rule however. The LC Lauren Conrad line exclusively for Kohls is a tsunami of pretty in a sea of fugly clothes. Prior to my current visit, I hadn’t been into Kohls in a really long time, but I planned a visit when I saw what looked like a fairly stylish and affordable tank top from her collection online. I was pleasantly surprised by the really nice collection she presented for spring/summer 2011. The clothes are modern and romantic with a lot of color, flowers, and charm. There is something for everyone in this collection: the hippie girl, the glamorous diva, and the everyday blue jeans and t-shirt type of girl.
The highlights of the collection are the tops and dresses. There are more than several lovely shirts in the collections but I am call attention to three of them. The blue Floral Braided Camisole ($36 full price) is elegant, flattering and beautifully constructed with braided T-straps. This is probably my favorite piece in her collection! I tried it on and it looks just as good on me as it does on LC! I also really like the white and black Smocked Camisole ($36 full price) because the lines that naturally flatter and slim the torso. The Butterfly Ruffle Tank ($34 full price) is super cute for day with a pair of jean or khaki shorts. Several dresses in the collection are really nice; I especially like the Floral Tiered Maxi Dress ($60), which is much when prettier worn than on a mannequin.
There are a bunch of really nice-looking pieces in the collection on the Kohls website that were not available in-store. I highly recommend taking a visit over to the Kohls to see this collection.
