What Kate Did


I had some girlfriends over for porch drinks and s'more dip last night and neglected to work up a blog post for you all. BUT, I've been meaning to discuss Kate Hudson & Ann Taylor's partnership with you all. Considering she is one of the cutest beings to ever walk this earth, saying that she's helping their image is an understatement. Not that I'm not about Ann Taylor, b/c the past few season's have definitely had some pieces that I love. I just think that their partnership with Kate has really helped get them noticed.


They're also one of those stores that I would have a hard time buying from if there wasn't an incentive, because they're ALWAYS offering discounts (and indeed they are right now too - 30% to 40% off full and sale price). 

Anyway, I do really love that top she's wearing. But would I have ever even seen it if Kate hadn't worn it? Not so sure. And the way Ann Taylor has it shown on their website isn't nearly as cute as the way Kate made it look... Just saying. Probably would have passed.

I know, I know. Deep thoughts for a Thursday. But perhaps I lightened the mood a tad from all the sadness in the news as of late.

S mores and drinks on the porch!?! I want in on that next time! (I promise I will keep my kids and rocks away from your cars ha)!

UH...S'mores? I WANT IN! Kate is amazing and her sense of style has really been awesome lately.

You are right! I wouldn't have given that shirt a second look on their website but absolutely love the way Kate is wearing it. Do you know where the skirt is from? I love the mixed patterns.

I've actually been a fan of their clothes for years but their fit just isn't right for my body type. It's always such a bummer bc I can try on 3 different sizes and none of them will fit quite right.

Ann Taylor diminished their own image several years ago and if you've ever been to one of their outlet stores you would know why. No amount of Kate Hudson would convince me to return.

So THATS why the patterns have been so fun and bright this season!

Totally agree! She makes them a little cooler. I love her and kinda hate her at the same time. She is gorgeous, great style and seems to have a great personality.

I came by to discuss this Kate business and got distracted on your post about Marysia.

Ok yes, I have been following her partnership since it started.

I think they could not have chosen someone more perfect. They have such a conservative "middle america" rap. Like Michigan Outlet mall shopping, but things I have gotten from Ann Taylor I have really loved. I wore one pair of cargo pants so much last year they split right up the middle. (I wore them pregnant and I guess they.. well you know)

Kate is the perfect woman to hip up the brand and make it cool. That girl can make a brown paper bag look good.
