Kohl’s Giveaway, Fall Fashion for Fashion’s Night Out (FNO)

By  | 
Pictured: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s top.

I’ve heard from a few of you that you live in a city that doesn’t host a Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) for you to participate in.  Well, in the era of Social Media and online interaction, FNO can come to you. That’s why The Recessionista is teaming up with the fashion team at Kohl’s to put together a Virtual Fashion’s Night Out Contest.  Kohl’s set me many samples of their Fall Fashions, and there’s a lot to choose from, with new things from Jennifer Lopez, Vera Wang, Lauren Conrad and many more.

Pictured: Kohl’s Lauren Conrad Mixed Media Top

Some of my favorites this season are the above pictured JLo Purple Beaded Top, the Lauren Conrad (LC) mixed media top ( above in white with black sleeves) and the new Vera Wang dresses.

Picture::Simply Vera Chiffon Dress

Second prize is a gorgeous Dana Buchman handbag. Additional entries will be given for following the social media communities for Kohl’s and The Recessionista.   You can enter anytime between now and Sept. 9th, 2012.  Contest ends at midnight on Sept. 9th.

    I love the Daisy Fuentes line.

    I was just at Kohl's today! They had a special 15% off coupon and I even earned Kohl's cash, which they start accepting tomorrow.

    Thanks for the chance!
