Open Knit » Dip Dye + Striped Fedora

by dietingfashion on July 11, 2012

After this Free People sweater post, my search for an affordable open knit sweater continued. I noticed this Spring and Summer the whole beach fun with the open knit wraps and shirts are picking up momentum.

This sweater is from LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls and what a beautiful top. The dip dye look is also very trendy and I adore the color. I think this top is also available in blue. The quality is okay. It is a lot softer to the touch compared to the Free People sweater. I have noticed that some threads are knotted oddly with the strands frayed and un-tucked into the stitching. Otherwise, not much else to complain. This sweater is loose fitted just the way I like it. Great with crops and sandals, and perfect for a stroll or playing around.

At The Playground: Minty Jeans, Lace + Studs

by dietingfashion on April 26, 2012

My kids were being so bad today! They would not take their naps and kept wrestling with each other. My 4 year old has an inch scratch on her ankle while my 2 year old has a tiny split upper lip. They are both little girls but love to be rough with each other. This all happened in the name of “Fun.” Yes, they were squealing, laughing, jumping and rolling around. To get them to take a nap, I like any normal mom, bribed them. With a trip to the playground.

Shoes: Banana Republic Wedges (old)

My husband snapped these pictures just for fun. He used his Nikon point and shoot. Not bad picture quality. I miss being able to just put my camera in my purse and go. The DSLR is so bulky.

I did not realize my lace tank has knitted Eyelashes on it until I saw these pictures! It’s kinda freaky.

This bolero shrug came with a Stylekelly dress by way of Yesstyle. I still have not worn the dress. It’s a very simple, chic polka dotted dress. However lately, I only have been going to weddings and I would rather wear something a bit more “Fun.”

Thanks for reading!

Kohl’s Shopping Madness

by dietingfashions on November 26, 2011

LC Lauren Conrad Polka-Dot Ruffle Chiffon Blouse


LC Lauren Conrad Floral Accordion-Pleat Chiffon Skirt


LC Lauren Conrad Polka-Dot Embellished Shirtdress


LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Bow Sweater


LC Lauren Conrad Lace Top


LC Lauren Conrad Chiffon-Trim Blazer

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?

LC Lauren Conrad Fall 2011 Collection

by dietingfashions on October 16, 2011

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 Striped Pleated Shorts


LC Lauren Conrad Pleated Chiffon Skirt
– I purchased it in the color Cafe Tint.

LC Lauren Conrad Fall 2011 Collection

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.
