Exciting news! London-based designer Karen Millen is launching the new 2012 collection for this fall! I went to the store located at the 900 Shops (the only Karen Millen store in the Chicagoland area and one of two in the whole midwest!) for some VIP goodies and a look at the new line. For this collection, Karen Millen has gone for a more edgy vibe, as opposed to the girly look it is known for. While the new look is bold, it still has a feminine flare that will leave you with a flattering look pleasing to all (the manager said that they’ve had moms, daughters, AND grandmas all walk out with something!) Talk about a great variety. I had the opportunity to try on some of their cocktail dresses myself, finding that London sizes indeed run small here in the US, about two sizes smaller to be exact. Nevertheless, the 2012 collection is a must see for sure and is perfect for any upcoming event whether it be sorority rush, a wedding, date night, or a night on the town.

There were many shoes that had a matching clutch to go with it! How convenient!
