@KmartFashion Remix Challenge: The Look For Less


Last week I hung out with noted stylist George Kotsiopoulos at the Tribeca Skyline Studios in New York. ICYDK, Kotsiopoulos is an editor, fashion consultant, stylist and television personality. You may also know him as a co-host of ‘The Fashion Police’ on E!. We spoke about his personal style, he always thinks a tie is a good idea (I don’t think we’ve seen him on TV without one). He hosted an event with Kmart an invited us to remix our looks. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised to see trendy (and well priced) pieces available.

For this style challenge I chose a maxi dress and a button down shirt for layered versatility. I had just purchased a coral maxi dress from Nordstrom from a popular designer that closely resembled the dress I found available at the Kmart event for a fraction of the price.

From there I gravitated towards colorful accessories: a Lucite coral & pink bracelet, bright pink cross body bag, blue flat sandals and a big hat (I like to think of them as an SPF-booster)…and the eye glasses/mustache necklace combo!

Once I was done it was off to shoot with fashion photographer Chris Heads.

The final look is an easy breezy summer look I love & live in. I added a whimsically printed button down shirt to wear over the dress. Its nice to be able to add sleeves especially when you’re in the midst of summer heat and then you run into an air-conditioned destination…brrrr.


I am obsessed with this necklace its one of those pieces I’ll wear out everyone will ask about.


The fashion photographer, Chris Heads, encouraged my interaction with the accessories.
