Do I dare say it?

Let me let you in on a little secret of mine. I have had a girl crush on LC (Lauren Conrad for those of you living under a rock) since the Laguna Beach days. Okay so being that my girl crush has been going strong since 2004, I guess it could now be considered an obsession. However, that makes me sound creepy and I'm girl crush it is.

Anywho, I have been hearing great things about her clothing line that is sold at Kohl's. I figured I would go give it a looksie even though I am poor and have no cash flow to spend on clothes. But, what else was I going to do for the half-hour I had to kill before I had to pick up Mr. Pickle from BART which is so conveniently located right down the street from Kohl's.

My first visit to Kohl's and first experience with the Lauren Conrad collection was not what I was expecting. First of all, everything in the store was pretty well organized and there were sales associates available to assist you.

Side Note: I hate going to some department stores (which shall remain nameless) only to have an arm full of clothes and not be able to grab a tank off the rack because the straps from the surrounding tanks and those stupid hanger straps are all caught up in the hanger of the one shirt you are trying to pull from the rack AND to top it all off, there is no one around who is willing and able to help you get the shirt or offer to take your items to a dressing room so you can continue to shop. I know, I have obviously spent way too much time shopping at Nordys. Okay, rant over.

Once I found the Lauren Conrad collection, I was pleasantly surprised that there were some great options to choose from. I was expecting items that would satisfy a tween's fashion sense and sizing that was fit for little people (which obviously I am not). I found several items that seemed to be cute but not young cute and a good combination of playful and mature. In addition, I was able to find my size and when I got to the fitting room was definitely surprised that the fit was true to size (IE. Large is actually a Large, not a Forever 21 Large that would fit someone that is normally a small). It looked like I had just gone through Lauren's closet and was trying on some of her clothes :)

Although I was unable to purchase anything, ran out of time before Mr. Pickle called and said he arrived and was waiting for me and the line was loooong and I have no money as previously mentioned, I will definitely be visiting Kohl's again to get me some fits.
Are you familiar with the collection? What are your thoughts?

These are just my honest opinions, I wasn't compensated in any way for posting my opinions.

I stopped by Kohl's awhile back to check out her line but either I wasn't in a shopping mood or I didn't see anything that caught my eye. But she does make some really cute stuff and I totally get you for the Forever21 stuff Target is even worse at times! Don't worry though I LOVE her too.
