With limited enthusiasm, I browsed the Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse collection at Macy's on Thursday night.  My Macy's store had a very limited selection, as they did with the Matthew Williamson collection.  After skipping over the faux leather high-waisted shorts, faux crocodile vest, and $49 tops emblazoned with the likeness of the Kaiser himself, I got to the good stuff: pretty tea dresses in pink hues and floral prints, signature black dresses, and super feminine blouses. 

In the interest of time, I only tried on three dresses, two of which are pictured.  (The third one was an itchy tweed one which was not flattering at all due to its boxy shape.)

Sizing seemed to run large in this collection, as I tried on size 2 and small.  (I'm hardly ever a size 2.) My favorite piece was the tea dress in Justblush, although the sleeves kept falling off my shoulders, and the length was a bit long for my taste.  I thought the fine net trim along the neckline and sleeves was an interesting touch.

The black dress had shiny embellished buttons down the front, and I found the collar impossible to button so high on the neck.  Although prices are a bit high for what I'd normally pay for a dress, the fabrics were decent, and the two dresses I tried had nice linings, quality trims, good tailoring with sashes around the waist, and flattering/feminine skirt shapes.  Has anyone else shopped the collection, and if so, what did you think?
