Wallpaper

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: c/o Karen Kane
Belt: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden

(Hello, awkward hands!)

I was recently sent this gorgeous wallpaper print skirt by Karen Kane and I absolutely LOVE IT. The fabric is so soft and stretchy, and feels like I'm wearing pajamas, and the wallpaper print is just so pretty.

I was actually introduced to the Karen Kane brand last year when I entered a giveaway for a $200 styling session AND WON. A Karen Kane merchandiser flew up from the Bay area and we chatted over coffee about the company before browsing their selection at Macy's. I was surprised to learn that the Karen Kane brand is still a family-owned business, with Karen herself overseeing all the designs. Not only that, but a large percentage of their clothes is manufactured here in the states, which is awesome.

During that shopping trip, I picked out a skirt, a striped tank top, and a little black dress (see the skirt + tank here), and over the past year, they've all become some of my favorite clothing items. Really, I'm not exaggerating!

Karen Kane has a large selection of casual and dressy offerings, available on their online boutique or in department stores nationwide. I hope I'm not sounding like an infomercial, but seriously, they have amazing customer service, great clothes, and are made in the USA. I hope you can check them out! :)

  5. That's an awesome skirt! I was excited to hear about Karen Kane being made in the states - I recently read "Overdressed - The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion" and though I can't completely give up the crazy budget friendly buys, it was very eye opening. They were one of the companies mentioned as offering quality goods made here! Woot, Karen Kane!

  13. That's awesome! I am a sucker for bargains so I'm drawn to cheap mass-produced crap, but slowly trying to shift my focus to good quality & ethically produced clothes that are bought at a discount. I'll have to check out that book! :)
