Narciso Rodriquez is an American designer based out of New York, who was the designer of Carolyn Bessett's wedding dress and Michelle Obama chose to wear one of his dresses in 2009 to celebrate Barack's presidential victory. For me Narciso is the designer of an amazing ready to wear collection that I could never afford. I love his clean lines, and modern yet classic take on fashion. So when I heard a collection was coming to Kohl's I was very excited.
Unfortunately all the items I just HAD to try on were not available at my local Kohl's. I mean not one item! But they did have a great selection, so I just grabbed one of almost everything to try one. Judy from Beauty Judy got to see the madness of me grabbing each item to try them all on. I think she was a bit more reserved (read: normal) and only selected a handful of items to try on. A friend of mine came with us and tried on several items as well and she took almost all the photos for me and while they looked good on my slowly dying phone's screen, when I got home and downloaded them more than half were blurry. Grrr. I really am going to throw this phone at a wall soon! (The problem is that everything looks a little blurry on my screen right now, but usually once I download them, they look perfectly fine, my screen is just weird right now so I never know 100% anymore.) So here are the salvageable pics we took last night.
|This dress looked fab on everyone! I think Judy went home with this one. For me here in FL, a long sleeved dress makes it only wearable on the coldest of days, so both my friend and I passed on this one.|
|I LOVED this dress. Everything about it is amazing, I may need to wear Spanx to even everything out underneath, but this dress is worth it! (I always wear form wear under any fitted dress.) But I have many dresses and so this one was left behind. :(|
|Same dress, different color. Ironically wasn't liking this color as much on me.|
|Did I mention the amazing zipper in the back. You can zip it up or down. HOTNESS! Oh I so want the green one!|
|You can see just how thin the material is by the tucked in shirt showing everywhere! Yuck! This would be better if it has a lining.|
|OK so these shoes are Simply Vera by Vera Wang. LOVE THEM! I so want them. But alas they are not in the budget. I'll post about the budget tomorrow, but I just had to post these beautiful shoes!|
