Chic Peek: LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection

Chic Peek: LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection

One of my earliest life memories is this magical day when I was a little girl and my older brother and mother took me to see Cinderella. It obiv was a re-release but to the 5-yr old Alicia is was the newest most magical movie ever and spawned many Cinderella themed outfits for most of kindergarden. Now with the live action Cinderella in theaters, the outpouring of Cinderella collaborations has been nothing but pure Disney magic.  They’re making me just as happy as a 5 year old Alicia wearing those screen printed Cinderella outfits with the matching skirt/leggings. My favorite collaboration has to be the LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection.

Besides being completely inspired by her super fun ad campaign (see here), to her launch event (see here) I went to my local Kohl’s to browse the collection they had in stock.  This collection is perfectly fitting for a modern day princess, clean cut, dainty and girly.

Alicia's Top Picks From The Collaboration

Alicia’s Top Picks From The Collaboration

My top picks from the collaboration are (from left to right), Mesh Back Dress ($80), Organza Bow Back Dress ($80), Foil Graphic Tee ($44) and Tulle Skirt ($64).  The best thing with Kohl’s is there is always a sale going on and coupons/additional discounts so those original prices are never what you pay.

Now if only I could wear a tulle skirt every day of the week!  A big tulle skirt may be a little hard to wear but dressing it down with a graphic tee makes it all the more wearable.  Might just be the perfect pairing for a Easter gathering or a spring fling!  (shoes and watch from my eboutique)

If there were a goddess of fall, this necklace would be her style!  Since I don’t know of one, we’ll just have to do our best and channel our inner fall goddess and plan 2 outfits around this stellar necklace!  Jackie from Living After Midnight and I had no problem with the challenge!

I SO called this one, shades of burgundy, wine, oxblood, etc, being the IT color for fall.  I was claiming it all last year, which means by the time it hit production it is all over everywhere this year!  What’s awesome about these shades are they look good on everyone, reminiscent of fall and a way to wear a bold color without being, well, too bold!

It's All In The Details

It’s All In The Details

I worked the IT color into my outfit in 3 ways:

1.  A punch of color with a statement piece in the mark. Style Goddess Necklace

Luxury retailers love her. If anyone has made her mark, it’s Rebecca Minkoff. “‘I started sewing at 8 years old and was immediately hooked,” she says. “I’ve been designing ever since.”

Her first major handbag hit, the Morning After Bag, is still one of her most popular styles and it led to equally successful ready-to-wear and shoe lines.

What’s next for the unstoppable designer? A collaboration with mark., of course!

Exclusive Access!

Celebrity makeup artist and mark. beauty expert Mai Quynh worked her magic for Rebecca’s show. Get all the details on the look exclusively in Mag 3!  (look for upcoming posts on the Rebecca Minkoff mark. collaboration, including how to get the look done on the runway!)
