Window Shopping: Kmart Round Two

June 10, 2011

Today I had to run some errands out of town, and there happened to be a Kmart nearby so I stopped in to do a little browsing. I actually went in to see if they had a fedora similar to the one from my first Kmart window shopping adventure, but no luck in that department. I did find some pretty jazzy stuff though:

This Kmart sold cosmetics…I don’t know if they all do or not, but since it was in the front I decided to have a look around. They didn’t have very many brands, but they did have one that I don’t normally see: Jordana. I don’t know where Jordana is usually sold, but I’ve never seen it before. These summer- perfect nail polish colors caught my eye immediately, especially the coral-orange one in the center:

I think these were under $3 each

I actually ended up getting two Jordana products to try, and I’m already in love with both of them. I got an Easyshine Glossy Lip Color in Watermelon Juice, and a Blush Powder in 18 Touch of Pink. The lip product is similar in concept and packaging to the Covergirl Lipslicks, but I really like this better. It definitely has more of a tint than the Lipslicks, but it still feels light, almost like a tinted lip balm. Also, it smells like watermelon…I don’t know if this is just because of the name of this particular color, but I love it.

The blush is what I really love because I have a hard time finding a natural looking blush for my skin tone. Darker corals look out of place (especially if they have gold shimmer), and very light pinks (which are normally perfect for pale ladies like me) don’t match my natural flush.  This one happens to be perfect, and it is actually pretty pigmented for how cheap it was. I am thinking about going back and buying it in more colors.

Next up, I stopped by the accessories area. They still had the army green watch that I featured in my last Kmart post for $9.99 (which I considered, again). But what I really wanted were these cat-eye (ish? kind of a blend between a wayfarer look and a cat eye look?) sunglasses:

These were $12.99…also note that Kmart carries some rather questionable merchandise (see NASCAR sunglasses label in the lower right corner. hehe)

This studded tank top was on the sale rack..and wasn’t in my size. To bad, because I would have snatched it up in an instant. Wouldn’t it look gorgeous with army green/olive high-waisted shorts and some rich brown and bronze accessories? I’m thinking yes.

This next thing may not be of interest to everyone (especially if you live in Cleveland—er, sorry?) but I had to include it. My family and boyfriend are big Red’s fans, so I thought this would be cute to wear to a game instead of the typical over-sized shirt. I would wear it with black scalloped short-shorts to girl-it-up a bit.

Also dug this perfectly draped crop top. It would make the perfect bikini cover-up.

I’m always drawn to basic Ked-like tennies, especially these chambray ones, which would look awesome with a short floral dress and a fedora.

Last but not least, I found these really adorable sandals. Perfect for walking around campus in the heat.

I also checked out Kmart’s website ( you should too – they have a special Kmart Fashion section) and found a bunch of really cool and inexpensive things and decided to make an outfit. The point of these “Window Shopping” posts is to reinforce the idea that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have nice things, so I figured a full look from Kmart would prove that. That doesn’t mean, though, that you shouldn’t mix and match from different places, this is just to prove a point (and show off some more awesome Kmart merch).

1. This maxi dress has moved to the very top of my summer wish list. The pattern is so amazing…I really can’t believe that it’s from Kmart (and only $18!!). The print is very chic and summery – perfect for an evening dinner or for a cover-up at the beach.

2. A double looped and long chain necklace in gold gives a breezy bohemian effect, while still adding an element of glam.

3. This bikini is adorb. It’s a  UK Style by French Connection.

 Also, did you know that Sophia Vergara (from Modern Family) has a clothing line coming to Kmart this fall? I will definitely be checking it out –I have a feeling there will be lots of curve-friendly items.Moral of the story? Stop by Kmart the next time you pass!
