I decided to venture into Kohl’s to return the 4 items from my online purchase. You can see these items from this post. After almost 1 month, I hadn’t pulled out any of the items except the Cafe tint Pleated Skirt. I really liked the skirt but I felt it wasn’t me. Well since I was at Kohl’s, I wanted to try on a few of Lc Lauren Conrad’s latest pieces.
What I’m wearing:
1. LC Lauren Conrad Polka-Dot Ruffle Chiffon Blouse
I’m wearing a size Small. I like how it looks but right underneath that bow is a button. Only where it ties, it is really tight. Not super tight but “Oh no, will I be able to button this shirt tight?”
2. LC Lauren Conrad Floral Accordion-Pleat Chiffon Skirt
LC Lauren Conrad Ruffle Chiffon Camisole
Lovely outfit. This is my favorite fitting. The look is flirt and romantic. Too bad it’s getting cold. I’m going to try pairing this outfit with a cape or tweed jacket.
3. LC Lauren Conrad Polka-Dot Embellished Shirtdress
When I read reviews on this dress, many people said “Cute dress. Tacky Rhinestones.” Yes the rhinestones does diminish the appeal of the dress. It’s pretty cute in the picture though. My main problem was that single button underneath the tie at the waist. I was wearing a size 8 – very fitted but a bit too tight for me at the waist. Also with the size 8, the back was bunching, so I knew a size 10 would not work for my body. Such a shame.
4. LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Bow Sweater
Cute and fitted sweater that I would really like to have purchased. The quality is a bit stiff to me, not as soft as I thought it would be. The bow on the backside gives a feminine, flirty appeal that is consistently shown through LC Lauren Conrad’s Collection.
5. LC Lauren Conrad Lace Top
This is another top that has a tie back bow at the back by the neck. Very stretchy material that is flattering to many body types. I am wearing a size Small and the armholes are perfect and so is the length. I believe I can wear this with a blazer and pants, or even a skirt.
6. LC Lauren Conrad Chiffon-Trim Blazer
I am wearing a size 6 in this blazer. LC Lauren Conrad’s sizing is pretty off throughout her collection. Some I wear XS, S, 6, 8, etc. With this blazer a 6 was pretty loose, but I couldn’t find a size 4 to try on. I do like the style. Many reviews online said the color is not a true pink as shown on kohls.com but more brown (a common problem this year even with different brands). I personally like a deeper pink color but the style of the blazer wasn’t really wowing me. There was another blazer I tried on: LC Lauren Conrad Ruched Boyfriend Blazer, however I could only find a size 8. The size 8 was huge on me. The width of the arm holes were strangely wider than normal. It was a good idea to ruched the sleeves giving the blazer a more casual flair but it didn’t look right with the huge arm holes. I lvoe the color though.
Did anyone pick anything up from LC Lauren Conrad?
I am adoring LC Lauren Conrad’s collection this Fall 2011. It is hip yet with a ladylike flare. I think this collection focused more on a relax style that could be dressed up for special occasions.
I purchased from Kohls.com the following:
LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Sweater – I bought the Doeskin and the Marsala colors. I love sweaters and I love the sweetheart mock neckline.
LC Lauren Conrad Pleated Chiffon Skirt – I purchased it in the color Cafe Tint.
I also used a 20% code I had found – Kohls Friends & Family: 20% OFF with code OCTFF20. exp 10-16-11. Plus I used the link from my Discover Card shops to receive 5% cash back from the purchase. Kohls is also running a special for purchase over $75 to get Free Shipping.
I haven’t received this shipment yet. I will see if I’m keeping any. But I’m hoping everything looks as good as it does online.
I am loving the Lauren Conrad Collection for Fall 2010, only available through Kohls and kohls.com.
Her clothes are simple, feminine, and very sophisticated. And by the price, pretty affordable. Her clothes are priced around $22.00 – $59.00 for tops, bottoms, and dresses.
I think she is doing the fashion thing very well. I think when she first had her line through Bloomingdales, it was way too over priced. The crowd for Bloomingdales are not going to be the demographic that will buy her clothes.
This year the style is leaning towards an English sophistication with the tall knee boots, ruffles and the airy prints. I see this in many stores such as Ann Taylor Loft and Express and The Limited.
