Alot of Fashion for a Small Price: All in One Top + Summer Norma Kamali

By  | 

Have any of you seen this little beauty (pictured above) online at your local Walmart store? I’m talking about the All in One $20.00(US) black top from Norma Kamali made for Walmart, that can be worn in a variety of wonderful ways.

Check out the video demonstration below of all the ways you can wear this versatile piece. Seeing is believing. This can be worn off the shoulder, strapless, halter topped and also conventionally with both sleeves on the arms. Imagine that! 🙂

Now that you’ve seen the demonstration, you may want to order one for that casual, chic look for summer. Well, I have good news and bad news. The top is selling quickly at Walmart online, and not all sizes are available. Now for the good news! Don’t despair Recessionistas. A new collection of Walmart looks from NK is on the way. I was in New York two weeks ago and had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Kamali in person at her store on West 56th Street. I got to see her hard at work on both her fashions and her Wellness products (teas, olive oils and more).

She was as charming and gracious in person as she appeared on Bravo’s Fashion Show last week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I really liked her in the role of judge, she critiqued the fashion and the designs, not the people. No one was brought to tears on national TV by “Madam Kamali” as Issac called her. Truly a class act. But I digress, check out what’s about to hit the racks and get ready to grin! Because it’s a beautiful and affordable. Here’s a sneak preview of two of the dresses.

To hear Norma talk about her upcoming affordable fashions at Walmart, watch your local ABC news tomorrow night, (May 28th.) Norma and The Recessionista (yours truly) will be featured in a segment on Recession Chic as part of ABC’s Economic Survival Segment. In the segment Norma notes, “There’s something about the recession and the downturn economy that will not only bring me into this world, but makes us all kind of come together and think of new ways to do things. I absolutely agree. Necessity is often the mother of invention as the saying goes.

I will be talking about a range of great bargains I have found, plus NK for Walmart. It’s a segment you won’t want to miss if you are looking to shop smart and savvy.
