Peter Som for DesigNation at Kohls Fab Five + Giveaway

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.

Have you seen the new Peter Som for DesigNation collection that’s available exclusively at Kohl’s?  The line is inspired by St Barths, and is all kind of easy breezy, which is perfect for Spring.  There are about 50-ish pieces in the line, ranging from tunics to tanks to dresses.  These are a few of my favorite items from the line

Eyelet Tunic

I am mad about eyelet.  I have been lusting after an eyelet peasant top for about three or four years, but they’re kind of expensive.  I keep saying I’m going to make one, but I never do. Now I can just zip on down to Kohl’s ad get one for a reasonable price.

Recently, as part of my ambassadorship with Kohl’s, I had the chance to sneak preview the new Peter Som DesigNation collaboration, that will be available exclusively at Kohl’s.  Inspired by St Barths, these pieces are flirty and fun with quite a nautical flair.

What’s in this Peter Som for Kohl’s Sneak Peek?

First up was the black and white dress.  This is the type of dress that can take you from day to  night, and back to day again.  Pair it with a blazer for work.  Lose the blazer and add some sparkly jewelry and a pair of fabulous heels to hit up happy hour or for dinner with that certain someone.

As you may have heard, pink is like the IT color for spring 2014.  If you’re not wearing pink, you might as well be wearing a potato sack.  Recently, I had the chance to head over to Kohl’s to see what they had in the way of pink clothing and accessories for spring.

How to Wear a Statement Necklace

Disclosure: How to Wear Statement Necklaces is part of an advertorial. pixel How to Wear a Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces have become so popular in the past year or so.  One of the questions I hear most often is – “How do I wear a Statement Necklace?”

It’s really not that hard!  A lot of it depends on the style of the necklace.  For a necklace like this one, which is loaded with fabric rosettes in various colors, I would pair it with a solid colored top.

I would wear this with a white or black tee or tank, denim capris, and sandals.  For a slightly dressier look, I might switch out some black or khaki pants and a wedge or a heel.

I am a huge fan of indie and artisan goods.   Indie jewelry artisans, small bag or clothing designers, artisan foods and cosmetics – I love them all.  One of the biggest problems with supporting these smaller companies is the ability to actually find them.  They don’t generally have large budgets to advertise with, and if they have a website, it’s possible that you could never find them.  It becomes frustrating.

There’s a new site out there to help us – ShopFunder.  ShopFunder has compiled a ton of great indie and artisan companies all in one site.  Each company has a storefront that displays their wares, or you can search by whatever items you’re looking for – like necklaces or clutch bags. As if that wasn’t enough, a portion of all sales go towards charity.  You get to shop small, indie brands and do something good for charity at the same time!?  Pretty great, right?

how to wear cuff bracelets How to Wear a Cuff Bracelet

When I was a little girl, there was nothing I loved more than a cuff bracelet.  Well, maybe my stick horse, since that thing went everywhere with me, but as far as accessories – had to be a cuff bracelet.   Now, I know you’re thinking to yourself “um, hmm…well, that’s different.”  Yes, yes it is.  But with good reason.

I was moderately obsessed with Wonder Woman as a young girl, and she had these awesome cuff bracelets that allowed her to do anything she wanted.  And growing up in a very “female empowerment” environment, I was always led to believe I could do anything I wanted.  Add in that three to four year old logic and you can see what led to the obsession with the cuff bracelet.
