During my last trip to Kohl's, I made my way to the shoe department to check out the latest from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. I have to be honest, the shoes in this collection are really hit or miss. The tall brown boots, for example, have a crazy high platform that make them impractical for most situations and considering they're not even real leather, they're way overpriced even on sale. The leopard flats, however, for just $18 and change are cute and a good find. A pair of black suede platform pumps looked nice but for the quality, you could do just as well at Target or Payless. I don't mean to sound harsh but I think Kohl's could really work on their shoes and handbags - either improve quality or lower prices. Otherwise, you can do better shopping places like the Marshalls Shoe Megashop or DSW, or brands like Steve Madden and Nine West that offer better quality and better prices. That isn't to say I won't be back - every once in a while, Kohl's delivers something uniquely chic in the shoe department (Simply Vera Vera Wang usually has a couple pairs that speak to me), and with my coupons and Kohl's cash in hand, I might just buy a pair.
