LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Rocks the Dots Review

This post contains affiliate links and I may be compensated if purchases are made by clicking links. 

LC Lauren Conrad and Disney have teamed up again at Kohl's, this time for a collection called Minnie Rocks the Dots. Sounds cute, right? Who doesn't love Mickey and Minnie? After seeing a few pieces online, my curiosity got the best of me. I paid a visit to my local Kohl's on a quiet weekday morning to style some looks for this fitting room review.

Here's a closer look at the details, which are exactly what you'd expect to see from a collaboration between Disney and Lauren Conrad: hearts, Minnie Mouse-inspired micro prints, flouncy bows, and Peter Pan collars. The color palette consists mostly of red, navy, and ivory, making it easy to mix and match the entire collection.

In The Fitting Room

For reference, I'm petite and weigh 102 lbs. I'm wearing size 2 in the dresses and XS in the tops. Side note: since I always get questions about my shoes, my heels are from eBay, and you can shop a similar style under $40 or this high-heeled style by Sole Society for under $70.

The polka dot dress runs true to size and has a tailored waist with no stretch. If you're curvy, I advise sizing up on this piece. The center back zipper is much better quality than previous LC collections, and the skirt portion is lined. There is a ruffled placket in the front and the knee length makes it perfect for the office or for a party. This one is well made and looks more expensive than it is.

The collared top runs ever so slightly narrow in the hip area compared to other tops in the collection, and the button closures on the cuffs can be tricky. It's comfortable, medium weight rayon, and I think it would pair well tucked into A-line or pencil skirts.

The collared tunic is lightweight (and slightly sheer) with an oversized, stretchy fit and jersey construction. The hem is longer in the back, and the collar is a cute double layer scalloped style.

The printed tank top has an easy fit, runs true to size, and is lightweight. It's polyester, prone to static cling, and the one on the left is the most sheer. I envision this tucked into skirts and layered under a blazer for a more polished look.

The graphic tees are oversized and lightweight, with a longer hemline in the back than the front. The one on the left is the most sheer, and the texture is a multi-flecked/nubby rayon/poly blend (almost like linen but less prone to wrinkles). My favorite is the striped version on the right.
