Yesterday I stopped by Kohl's to check out their Veteran's Day Sale and was quickly sidetracked by the dazzling selection of party dresses from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. Thanksgiving is already next week (can you believe it?!) so now is the time to start shopping for all your holiday events. Luckily for us, LC makes getting dolled up for the season simple: There's the show-stopping sequin number ($60, was $80) that's still demure enough to take you from a family gathering to a club; a simple little black dress ($48, was $64) with surprise tuxedo-lace detailing on the back; a red dress ($48, was $64) with a sweetheart neckline and just enough lace to keep things fun; and my personal favorite, a creamy gold jacquard party dress ($48, was $64) with a flattering a-line skirt and bow detail on the waist that's so Kate Spade, without the Kate Spade price.
I also spotted some chic blazers in velvet and lace, brocade shorts and pretty sweaters for days you don't want to don a dress. (I went home with a heart sweater, striped dolman top, and a cobalt blouse with embellished sleeves).
There were some issues, however, especially with sizing. I tried on all the dresses to give you guys a better idea of what these look like in real life and found that I took a size 6 in the ivory dress, a "medium" in the sequin dress, a size 6 in the LBD and a size 8 in the red lace dress. My advice: Try these on in person! Happily, most of the dresses were bra-friendly, always a huge plus. Overall I'd say check your store or kohls.com for more options, and make sure you use your Kohl's charge and coupons to get the best deal!
