A high end designer/affordable retailer collaboration launched this week that I happen to be INSANELY excited about. Coming from a girl who does not get overly excited about limited edition capsule collections anymore (thanks to a closet full of "ghosts of collaborations past" pieces that I rarely, if ever, wear- sound familiar?), this proclamation should hold some serious weight.
No, it is not Lilly Pulitzer for Target. It is Milly for Kohl's DesigNation. It launched yesterday, and it is all kinds of awesome. Inspired by the technicolor vistas of Capri, the bold, feminine-with-an-edge collection is all around perfection. Nothing is over $100 (and right now, you can score all the pieces for an additional 25% off- nice.)
The stand outs, in my opinion, are the "scuba" pieces- easy to wear dresses and super flattering pencil skirts that feel like lightweight neoprene, resist wrinkling and look polished without being precious or prissy.
This black midi scuba skirt should to be a staple in every closet- I would wear it with a white tank top and a cropped denim jacket. And I am quite confident that this will be my go-to cocktail party dress- comfy and durable enough to wear for hours, when said cocktail party turns into a boozy late night out, as they so often tend to do out here in the 'burbs.
Check these looks out, and shop away!
