I Fought the Mannequin and Won

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there!  What a busy weekend I had.  Weekend highlights include: ice cream, napping, dancing, mom-time :D

blue shirt: American Eagle | crochet top: LC Lauren Conrad | jeans: Hollister
shoes: Guess (similar) | necklace: Forever 21

Last weekend I went to Kohl's armed with a bunch of store credit that I've been saving for summery clothes.  I spotted this lovely 70's inspired crochet top from the LC Lauren Conrad collection on the mannequin and, of course, it was nowhere to be found on the racks.  Luckily, the mannequin was wearing my size.  It took about three store employees attempting get it off of her before she reluctantly handed it over (the employees couldn't get the mannequin unscrewed from the display).  I was causing a ruckus!  Good thing I actually liked what it looked like on me or else I would have felt bad!  But I like it and the mannequin got a new outfit to wear since I took her original one.  Kohl's success!

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Haha that happened to me once. It was super awkward, but clothes on mannequins in general are really awkward. Love this crochet top! So it was worth the struggle!

    p.s. I really like those wedges. I feel like those might not make me freakishly tall.
