Disclaimer: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Kohl's. I attended a live event and received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Last week, a few lucky bloggers and I got to not only check out the Peter Som for Kohl's collection before it hits stores, but we also got to chat and mingle with Peter Som, himself! The world-renowned designer brings a breezy effortless style to the collection, inspired by one of his favorite vacation spots, St. Barths. Personally, I was completely blown away with this collection. I loved not only the quality of the fabrics, but the wide range of pieces in the collection available sizes XXS to XL.
At the event we were asked to take part in a fun styling challenge by mixing and matching pieces from his collection with other items found at Kohl's. We created outfits reflecting the latest spring trends and other occasions such as Brunch and Mother's Day. Stylist Mary Alice Stephenson was also on hand to give tips and suggestions if needed. I found styling outfits pretty easy, although I wish we had more time to pick out the other Kohl’s pieces. (Scouring through an entire Kohl’s store is not as easy as it sounds!)
For the challenge I used my favorite pieces from the collection like the Striped Romper, Motorcycle Vest, Striped Fit & Flare Dress, and Postcard Halter Maxi Dress. Here are how my outfits came out. Tell me what you think! (Peter’s favorite outfit was the orange romper.)
I must say this was one of the best events I have attended so far! I love that Peter was so sweet and down to earth and stayed with us the entire time. We even took a group selfie with him a la Ellen. It really was a fashion moment I’ll never forget. Thanks for the fun night Kohl's and Mom Central!
The Peter Som Collection is available online starting today, and April 10 in-stores.
