Apparently my last post on my vintage Milly dress was well timed, because I realized that the Milly for Kohl’s line is now available (in stores and online)! Never one to miss a designer collaboration with an affordable retail store, I checked it out. Not too surprisingly, many pieces were already sold out in my local store, but I managed to snag the sole remaining lemon dress that I had admired online. The prices for the line are a bit steep, if the pieces are not on sale. However, with the Kohl’s coupons, discounts in the stores, and Kohl’s cash/points, the pieces did become more affordable. And, an important side note, the quality on this line is pretty impressive and generally true to the Milly designer line aesthetic.
musings on milly (for kohl’s)
My verdict on this one: I don’t think many of these pieces will hit the clearance section due to their quality and popularity. If you want anything from the line, grab some coupons online, register for a free Kohl’s cash points card, and visit your local shop/online today!
Dress: Milly for Kohl’s ($35 marked down from $70)
Blazer: Elizabeth and James via Rue La La ($55 marked down from $500)
Necklace: Juicy Couture charm from bracelet and Kohl’s necklace ($5 marked down from $24)
Daytime kitten heels: Aubrey Brooke from DSW ($12 marked down from $99)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Designer collaborations via retail stores such as Target and Kohl’s can be a little hit or miss though, overall, I’m a fan. I prefer to check-out these collections, if possible, in the actual stores to look over the quality and fit of the pieces. With any line that I really have had my eye on, I tend to view the ‘lookbooks’ online via the official press releases. After the release, I will attempt to go to the store the week of the release. With very popular lines, the collections tend not to go on sale. If you don’t mind potentially missing out on a collaboration, I just wait it out and see whether any of the pieces end up on sale. Here are a couple collaborations that are currently available:
2) As with my last post, I actively used the size chart again to attempt to find this dress in the correct size. Victory! Once again, I have gotten the message that online size charts really are your friends. I keep a flexible tape measure in my desk and my purse for this very reason- you just never know when you will need one! You can find flexible/fabric tape measures online and at your local craft store; they are $1 at my local sewing shop.
Anyone else checking out the Milly for Kohl’s line? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so very much- happy mid-week!

Love the shoes! So retro. 🙂
My oh my! Who would have thought that pears could look this enticing? Haha that dress is just amazing; pears paired with navy stripes, pretty brilliant! Your kitten heels are gorgeous and that statement necklace is the perfect finishing touch of glam for this look. Enjoy your day lovely!

They always remind of Ray Rayner who wore them on a local morning cartoon/puppet show when I was a kid.
