New Spring Looks from Simply Vera Vera Wang

I love Vera's play on proportions and smart color choices in this latest crop of looks from her Simply Vera by Vera Wang collection for Kohl's. She mixes various volumes and lengths, adds a touch of brights tempered by subdued hues, and incorporates some of the whimsical watercolor, painterly prints that are so popular this season. When you add it all up, everything about her collection suggests she takes women seriously. Comfortable, dare I say, practical looking shoes suggest she respects the fact that women actually have places to walk to without pain or breaking an ankle. She's also succeeded in convincing me that an anorak can be both functional and cute. Even the way the lovely models are styled says, "We can think, too." It's just refreshing, that's all. Bravo.

Well put. She seemingly "takes women seriously" indeed! Absolutely beautiful.

Your reviews on her collection always leave me wanting to immediately run to a nearby Kohl's :-) I must visit this weekend.

I like the very first dress, just wish it wasn't so short. I love Vera but her stuff is selling too high!

Here's a pic of me wearing the first dress, maybe it will give you another perspective because I didn't think it was too short (and trust me, I don't wear short skirts!):

As for the're right, they are too high BUT Kohl's is known for great sales. Still, I wish we didn't have to wait. They should just lower everything to begin with.

Well, the model is at least a good 10 or 11 inches taller than me so maybe it will come below the knee on me (I'm only 5 feet). I'll have to go check out her collection tomorrow.
