Off the Rack: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's November Offerings

On Friday I did a little shopping at Kohl's, where all LC Lauren Conrad collection clothing was marked down 35-40% off - meaning most items were well under $50. Had I used my Kohl's charge, I could have gotten additional discounts but instead I used a giftcard, courtesy of Kohls, to purchase an embellished tank top (above) for $36.99. I thought I paid $23.99 until a few moments ago when I checked my receipt for the purpose of writing this post. The moral of the story: Double check prices before you check-out!

Other items I liked included a lace jacket, lace-back cardigan, leather-look jacket (previously shown here), and "granny floral" blouse. A cropped fur jacket seemed to have potential - might be cute with a cocktail dress, or it might look like you've been attacked by a teddy bear. On the rack, many pieces looked lackluster (like the shapeless sweaters) but I recommend trying things on. A shopping buddy of mine observed that the LC collection lacks petites and cold-weather clothing, but if you're looking for a cute top or cocktail dress to wear for a casual night out, you might find some gems. More photos after the jump!

Great post, but what I really want to know if what kind of boots are you wearing?

The chunky knit shawl collar cardi looks delicious! Is it from her line?

I got that embellished tank top and I LOVE it! I used a $10 off coupon plus it was on sale. I think it would look cute with skinny jeans and heels for some drinks with my girlfriends!

I like how you put a belt around the cardigan. Totally fashionable!

I LOVE the 4th outfit you have on, the blazer and the cardigans!

I love Lauren's line. I always find at least one or two pieces that I love. All the items looked great on you!

I have the black tulle skirt you photographed on the rack. I just got it this weekend in lavender, and it was on sale for $13, plus I had a coupon for $10 off. I can't wait to wear it! My Kohl's didn't have nearly the selection of the one you visited. Thanks for trying some of the pieces on; it's so nice to see what they look like on.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that LC Lauren Conrad Henley Set - that would definitely be purchased with the gift card. I really like this brand at Kohls - I bought two LC tops that I just received yesterday in the mail - they are BEAUTIFUL and fit perfectly! And they were on clearance!

you beat me to buying that top! I saw it online a few days ago and was going to head to Kohls to check it out. I love a lot of LC's line, they seem to be pretty good quality and fit well. I would get the grey embellished top and then the Apt. 9 Cheetah Cashmere Cardigan for a little wild luxury. Kohls always has awesome deals so that $100 would go far!

Those cardigans are adorable! I would definitely invest in a few of those. I'd also throw in some of those skinny pants. They're all the rage now a days!
