Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl's Spring 2010 Lookbook


Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohls Spring 2010 Lookbook

The Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl's Spring 2010 collection lookbook is out, showcasing designer Vera Wang's affordable collection of contemporary apparel, jewelry, handbags and shoes with an artful edge. Happy colors like coral, purple, teal and yellow play on dresses, tunics and tops, along with floral and brushstroke prints, which contrast nicely with basic blacks. Leggings are always a big part of Vera's collections but there are some cropped pants, jeans and denim trousers to choose from, too. Most of these pieces are already available in stores and at kohls.com, so you may have seen or shopped them already (hopefully on sale!). I love the sequin tank tunic, thought it looked really luxe in person. I'm also a big fan of all the chunk chain jewelry (not loving the cheesy flower jewelry so much). I just wish they'd step up the quality of the bags, considering the steep prices. Which pieces do you love? Keep reading to see the whole collection!

Loved the tan marjoram heels in person! I'm debating if I want to wait for them to go on sale or get them now!

I love all of the dresses. My local Kohl's is usually a horror show, but I may have to brave it for these. Thanks!

I am a huge fan of the Simply Vera line, and the best thing about it, they usually go on sale for really cheap. Add Kohl's coupons in the mix and you're set!

Love the sequin tunic in SAGE.
I wore it to an OSCAR party--its amazing!

That's my favorite piece, too! It definitely looks like something from Vera Wang's high end line.

I usually like Vera's line, but I think it is overpriced for the quality. I definitely wait for everything to go on sale and combine with Kohls coupons, just like Dina mentioned.

i dont know, i expected more. this stuff looks cheap to me. there are a few standout pieces: the cropped techno jacket, cotton leggings, and the cinched back jacket. everything else looks pta meeting gone bad.

oooh, thanks for posting. I don't make it to Kohl's very often cause there isn't one near me, but I might have to go check some of this stuff out.

I personally think these outfits are beautiful! Thanks for posting! XD
#8 Nicole on 2010-03-12 13:46 (Reply)
I love everything shown, but I have to agree with some of the other comments. This stuff is overpriced.

I purchased the oversized sunglasses in tortise today. They were on sale and I paid less than $20.00. They look great will be great to have as an extra pair !

I always have great luck w/ Vera from Kohl's...I get it for every holiday function---it fits well and with Kohl's cash and sales...I usually can get newer-line items for at least 60% off!:-)
