My First Michael by Michael Kor Purchase....

From past experiences, I find I will usually find things I adore when least expected. In general, the rule is if I look for something in earnest, it is almost guaranteed I will not find it.While running some errands at the mall the other day, I walked by Micheal Kor and was immediately attracted to the window display, particularly the white dress. Anyhoo, thinking the dress will cost a pretty penny, I just walked by without going in. However, I really liked the dress, so I still ventured into the boutique in the end, just for a look.

I found out Michael Kor offers a lifestyle line named Michael by Michael Kor. Price point is rather fabulous in my opinion, in line with J Crew and Banana Republic. In the end I purchased the white dress and the shorts. The dress retailed at $99 and the shorts, $59, which were quite wallet friendly.  I was expecting to pay $200-300 for the dress and about $100+ for the shorts. The quality is alright, cotton can be softer and more refine but it is in line with the price point.  I am in adoration with MK's casual but still stylish designs. Since summer clothing is quite disposable; this is just perfect. I have not a chance to wear them yet, as I must wash everything before wearing. Have you purchased anything from this line?

  8. I have some shoes from the M by MK, and then a pair of python shoes from his runway line which i got for such a steal, something ridiculous at 70% off. But I've seen his M by MK clothes and it's all very nice especially for where I live. And sometimes I'm bummed that I can't wear his watches because the faces are too big.

  15. I always encourage people to buy good things when they see them because as you say, if you're looking for it you're not likely to find it.

  22. That is a nice and chic dress! I like it too. Mor and more big name designers are now offering affordable clothing lines. I recently bought a Vera by Vera Wang shirt for $60 and the quality is good.

  23. I love the fact that he has brought his clean classic syle down to an affordable line of clothing.
    Still, I dream about the designs that he did for Celine...they were perfection that I couldn't afford.

  26. What great deals! I have never bought anything from that collection, simply because I also assumed it was going to be expensive. But the prices you listed sound very reasonable. I will have to check it out! xoxo
