what i wore - valentine’s day edition.

i looked better last year on heart day. maybe it was because i was going out with a guy i actually liked and care about. sigh. and i’m wearing pink tones. i’m so cliche!

it’s as good a night as any for a drink or two with a girlfriend right?

cardigan - LOFT

tank - LC for Kohl’s

Lauren Conrad original designs? not so much.

sorry to ‘out’ the LC collection at Kohl’s, but the news is that she does not really have all original designs. first i want to say that i do love some items she has in her collection and i own a bunch of them. i won’t stop buying them, but i was extremely disappointed to find a dress on the rack that i own an IDENTICAL copy of from LOFT.

i realize this can be defended with an “inspired by” explanation. but it is still disappointing that the line completely copied off of LOFT. i like my LOFT dress better in the end, a more fitted bottom half. but to exactly copy the top of the dress? really? so sad.

MY dress from Ann Taylor LOFT.
