I started working for Karen Kane a few months ago. As you can probably imagine, the best part of working for a clothing company is the clothes! After working with samples day in and day out, I was eager to get my hands on a few pieces of my own. Working at the headquarters in Los Angeles, I’ve seen the quality and care that goes into each piece we ship out. Can you believe almost all of it is made in sunny California?! When our newest collection, “Melrose,” finally arrived, I had a chance to purchase my first few looks, and I felt like a kid on Christmas morning!
Therefore, for my first post, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my “Melrose Must-Haves” – the pieces I can’t live without!
- Button Up Blouson Sleeve Shirt – 2L25186W
I consider my style to be a little more laid back, so when I saw a blouse I could dress up or down, I knew it would be my new obsession. My favorite part of this shirt is the color. This particular shade of coral (which we’ve been calling “salmon”) is warm, but not too bold. I also love the fact that this shirt is machine washable. For a girl who uses the dryer to get wrinkles out, it only helps that my new favorite top is perfectly wrinkle resistant!
- Contrast Maxi Tank Dress – 2L13084W
I have some mad love for maxi dresses, but I actually don’t have as many as I would like. They are super easy to throw on and go! I absolutely love how the color blocking creates an illusion of a print and sets it apart for your basic black dress. Also, the rayon/spandex fabric is amazingly soft and lightweight, which makes for a great look…whether it’s casual or more dressed up for the office.
