Haute or not? Steve Harvey Women’s Collection

The Steve Harvey Women’s Collection debuts at K&G stores today.  I heard all about it via his radio show this morning as one of his daughters promoted the line (I kept waiting for someone to yell “Think like a man; dress like a lady!”).  The collection, which include accessories, hosiery, separates and dresses (in solids and prints composed of polyester/rayon/spandex blends), are sold for $49.99 or less.  The line is marketed as “fashion that works for the office and beyond” to women sizes 8-24 who want look fabulous on a budget (which is commendable), but I don’t see anything particularly special or inspiring about the pieces.  You can purchase a silky secretary blouse with a necktie, a nondescript pencil skirt or a paneled dress from Saks to Macy’s to Forever 21 right now.  And the double breasted belted jacket should be avoided at all costs.  However, I did appreciate seeing the pieces on “real” women; winners of a model search were styled in some of the pieces and are featured on the website.

Personally, I’ll pass.  But I wonder if we’ll see Mrs. Harvey wearing it?   And will you be heading over to K&G to check out the line?

“The BU Collection is about self-empowerment, self-realization, and becoming the ultimate you.  In a world that is obsessed with the cult of celebrity, the BU Collection challenges you not to aspire to anyone else’s greatness, but instead, strive to reveal and ignite the greatness within you.  The BU Collection gives you the tools and the wherewithal to become the best you, the ultimate you…simply put, BU.  Within all of us, our blood runs the same color.  It is our humanity that makes us interconnected. Signed, Blair Underwood”

The line, which features multiple button, pants style and pattern options, is priced at $99.99 as of today and appears to be part of “Buy 1 Get 2” sale…do with that what you will.
