Simply Vera Leaves Us Simply, Um, Excited? About Fashion?

This we'll say for wedding dresses: they're predictable, monochromatic garments you buy more on the basis of quality and craftsmanship than fads and brand names — all traits we look for on the rare occasion we buy clothes. Maybe that's why we keep marveling every time we catch a glimpse of one of the hundreds of September magazine pages devoted to Vera Wang's cheapo collection for Kohl's. Or maybe it's because her philosophy, as she told O Magazine, can be summed up thusly: "Let's not kid around —dark colors always take off ten pounds." Or maybe it's because we have never seen, like, texture in one of these big-designer-for-crap-discount-chain lines. Anyway, we have never been to Kohl's, but we totally checked out its store locator today — and that's a step for us! After the jump, some pretty pictures from the O spread.

I actually work at Kohl's and we were all pretty excited to get the new Vera line in. It's definitely not CRAP and looks really nice the way we've displayed it. I got a chance to check out some of the stuff before I left today and it's nice. I think it's great that Vera Wang was willing to risk her image in the high fashion world and step down a bit to pay a little attention to the "little people" and offer her clothes at a more reasonable price. I feel like more high end designers should consider doing the same. I don't see what the problem is at all. Calling it the "cheapo" line is just dumb. Excuse us for not being able to afford $1,000 skirts and $400 sunglasses. Kudos to Vera Wang.
