|Pictured: Macy’s Fashion Star Looks, on sale now.|
The three looks from the NBC Fashion Star Show picked by Macy’s are now available at Macys.com. And one is already sold out, the Maxi Caftan Dress for $89.0 by Nikki Poulos. Macy’s buyer Caprice Willard purchased the most items of the night with a total of three purchases from the designers below, which you can see on Macys.com/fashionstar. Below is a little about the looks from the individual designers.
- Sleeveless Halter Dress by Edmond Newton— ($99.00, $110.00) — V-neckline dress, halter ties in back of neck, banded inset at empire waist. Ruched skirt with bubble hem and back zipper. Fully lined hits just above the knee. Colors: Black (ruched skirt with bubble hem, $99.00), and Black/White with Rosettes details (allover soutache rosette details, $110.00)
- Kimono-Sleeve Maxi Caftan Dress by Nikki Poulo priced at 89.00, already sold out. This dress has a V-neckline dress with short kimono sleeves and drawstring at empire waist. Floor length; approximately 40 inches long from natural waist with attached slip lining, no pockets. Comes with matching scarf. Colors: White Eyelet and Geo Print.
- Asymmetrical Jersey Tunic by Lizzie Parker priced at $79.00. This is my personal favorite of the three, because I think it’s the most affordable. This top has a rounded neckline, and is made from a textured knit with asymmetrical ruching at front. Single cape sleeve can also be worn as a dress (a mini dress). The tunic comes with attached slip, which you need because it’s sheer. Colors: Black, Ivory and Plum.
I think the Macy’s garments look great, but the H&M Fashion Star collection really undercuts them in price point by a substantial margin. There are no $19.99 dresses here. What do you think readers? Would you wear any of the Macy’s pieces? The power of TV marketing is great. I’m amazed that the $89.00 Maxi dress already sold out.
