ADDENUDUM: November 7: I actually went to Kohl’s today to try on clothes from the Narciso Rodriguez collection. Note that the dresses are made from a polyester/spandex blend and that they are not lined (not surprisingly, of course). I was not in love with the fit - for me. I’m a petite and rounded dewdrop. If you are slender or a fabulous hour-glass - and like a lycra-like stretch - some of these dresses might work for you.
I was flipping through the November 2012 InStyle (great issue!) and was inspired by two components: an ad (of all things) and an article on slimming dresses. Kohl’s is now doing what Target has so successfully been doing with their limited designer releases. Narciso Rodriguez has paired with Kohl’s for a November 7 release on some bright color block dresses. What caught my eye is the above dress with the black side panels. That was the ad. Then, as I continued flipping, I came upon the “Your Look” segment which focuses on “Insta-slim dresses.” Always a good thing, I say! Featured are contrast panel dresses with vertical lines along the sides or down the front, narrowing hips and flattening/flattering tummies.
Yup, I am going to stop by Kohl’s on November 7 to see if I can snap up that cute dress.
