Skirt: Kardashian for Sears
Well, I'l start off by saying that I really considered not writing the name of my skirt. I really did.
You see, I''m one of those people who when the Kardashian line for Sears came out said "Skanktastic!" Well, a couple days ago I ate my words. (Well, at least two other ladies in Fairbanks did the same.) We were at Sears scooping out the great clearence when I saw something shocking. It was the most lovely shade of pink. It looked feathered. It was so far from skanktastic. It was in the Kardashian section.
Myself and two other lovely laadies were ohing and ahing over this beautiful skirt, all making our snarky comments about how shocking it was to see something so PRETTY and well made by the Kardashian brand. (BTW, you ladies were hystarical!) So, after all this, I decided to give their clearence items a try. It was much the same that I saw when the line first came out, cheaply made, over priced and skanky. But there were a few gems. This skirt, a lace blouse and of course, the beautiful feathery-ish skirt. (I'll try to wear it this week, it really is pretty. And after all the coupons and sales, I got it for super cheap.) So I've learn, at least try some once or twice, you never know.
Which brings me around to something else. In the style blogging world you see a lot of H&M, Anthroplogie, Urban Outtfitters, The big three(Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic) Forever 21, J.Crew and Target. I tried to think back, but I haven't seen any Sears stuff. At all.
And that my darlings is a shame.
Sears is one of those places known for washers and stuff, but they have some great clothing finds. UK Style by French Connection is a fab little line with nicely made on trend items and basics. They have a misses and a plus section for this line and the plus line is beautiful. Usually the plus lines are just big, billowy sacks, but there are fantastic tops and dresses by the UK Style. Another fun line is the line by Sancturay which has great fitting jeans and a very boho look. I've found awesome, cheap shoes at Sears that have lasted over six years so far. And there's the Kardashian line, which has some hits and misses. (That's a more spendy line, only hit it on sale or clearence.) Sears always has sales going on and good coupons so look for those and their clearence ROCKS. I have a lovely beige shift dress that I got for $2.99. The juniors area, however, is scary. Very teenybooper. Watch out.
So, after writing a book, I will say that Sears did not pay me for this. (I woldn't mind though!) It's just one of those really under rated places that you can find great, fairly cheapish, decently made clothing items.
Whew! I'm all tuckered out. So, do you ladies have any unknowish places you like to shop for great little items?
