Celebrity stylist George Kotsiopoulos kicks off Kmart’s stylish contest. Want to win $500? Yes, you do!
Sofia Vergara often wears her, Sofia by Sofia Vergara brand on Modern Family. So you’ve seen how fun and chic Kmart clothing is, especially under bright studio lights!. Now you’ve got a chance to style your way into the spotlight with Kmart’s first ever Money Can’t Buy Style Remix Challenge. You can win $500 by entering!
The other night fashion editors and bloggers gathered at Skyline Studios in Manhattan and were offered a challenge: Create an outfit around a Jaclyn Smith Utility shirt ($14.99). There were racks and racks of shirts, dresses, pants, jeans, shorts and jackets. All stylish and all Kmart. And yes, there were accessories, scarves and bags to add more pizzaz too. On hand was celebrity stylist and fashion expert, George Kotsiopoulos (you might’ve seen him on E!’s Fashion Police) to give style advice and chat about fashion and Kmart.
The event was fun and nerve-wracking. We were told we could style two outfits, but only one would be photographed by renowned fashion photographer Chris Heads. The pressure was on to create something that reflected your personality and looked chic too. Did I mention we were being photographed by a famous fashion photographer whose neighbor is Kate Moss? Really,why would anyone be nervous?
I dragged a million things into the dressing room and settled on the below outfit. I was going for an outfit that could be worn doing almost anything on a sunny weekend day.
Here’s what I wore, Jaclyn Smith Utility shirt in rose, Sofia by Sofia Vergara high-low dress ($23.09) , Jaclyn Smith floppy hat ($6.59) , Bongo Earrings cut-out fish hook gold/orange ($7.99) Sofia by Sofia Vergara cast ring ($10.99) and Jaclyn Smith women’s T-strap Marilena ($14.99).
