Here's My Milly for Kohl's Review Complete with In-Store Photos and Dressing Room Selfies

Milly for Kohl's

Yesterday I managed to time my son's sometimes-nap with a little shopping trip to Kohl's, where I scoped out the new Milly for DesigNation collection. While my store didn't have a huge selection, I was able to try on a few dresses and assess the quality and sizing. Here's what you need to know: Fit is true to size (similar to Kohl's ELLE brand). The fabrics feel soft and substantial. I had trouble with some zippers but no deal breakers with quality or fit. Be careful to note that some pieces which look like Milly are in fact part of the ELLE collection (like the lemon dress and the matching crop-top skirt sets you'll see featured below). The similarities are...awkward. But if you find yourself preferring some of the ELLE pieces, no harm in that!
