Before I begin this fashion post, thank you everyone for all your birthday wishes via IG, Twitter and FB. Truly means a lot. I appreciate everyone of you!!
As I mentioned on a previous post, I recent discovered Kohl’s (a department store similar to JcPenny, TJMaxx, etc) and I gotta tell ya, I’m beyond ecstatic that I did. Like Target, Kohl’s hosts special edition limited time designer launches and houses several designer lines from Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Conrad to name a few. On a random Google search for pajama style charmeuse pants (I was obsessed with a pair of ill-fitting Zara ones), I came across the Narciso Rodriquez collaboration that launched during the holidays. The best part about it is, I managed to find several separates from this special line that can easily be pieced together. Further, they were all on clearance which made an epic haul possible.
Today’s outfit showcases two pieces that I instantly fell in love with-the medallion charmeuse top and bottom. This ensemble worked perfectly for me since I was going for a sophisticated birthday dinner look.
The pants (sz xl) were too big and I ended up having to tailor it a bit myself but will eventually bring it to a professional. I loved the the silky material which mimicked pajamas in terms of the comfort level and the medallion print with the tuxedo stripe. I was annoyed by the asymmetrical tricky collar from the top, which seemed to catch everything. I speculate this top would have worked best for someone who’s less endowed.
