Fresh Look: Swoonworthy and savvy at Kohl's



kohls_0.jpgI used to go to Kohl’s only when I had a coupon, or when they had a fantastic deal on toaster ovens. But lately, I’ve been leaving with swoonworthy clothes that only look expensive.

A-listers Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez, Dana Buchman and Lauren Conrad all have signature lines at Kohl’s, an early leader in wooing high-styling celebrities to design for the masses. On a recent trip, I couldn’t take my eyes off  Lopez’s sparkling holiday line.

A silver sequined crop shrug, originally $84, but on sale for $58.80, captivated me. It was more than I planned to spend, but the piece screamed possibility. Think club night (paired with a miniskirt), a swank date night (thrown over a little black dress) or even a casual dinner party (topping off jeans and a tee).

But right now, I wanted a holiday outfit. JLo’s sequins were the perfect complement to an iconic crimson draped dress by Simply Vera Vera Wang.  Come January, I’d tone the hue down for work with a black or white blazer. And on sale for $34.80, marked down from $58, the price couldn’t be beat. Thanks, Santa Vera!

I left Kohl’s with a bag full of glamor for $100.15. And the cashier handed me a voucher good for $10 on my next purchase, so I’ll be back soon for another fashion-forward fix.
