I was fortunate enough to attend the 2016 AMAs as one of the #KohlsVIPs. They didn’t ask me to write this. I just wanna.
Award shows have always been my favorite thing to attend. There’s always a fun, yet frantic energy that’s infectious beyond proper explanation. That doesn’t change when it comes to getting dressed for the main event either.
This year I had a combination of things I needed to look fabulous for. Kohl’s extended the gracious opportunity to attend the awards in a very big way. We’re talking full styling by the ever-talented, stylist to the stars, Negar Ali Kline. Not to mention the on-air coverage of the entire group’s experience which translates to “more outfits, yo!”
I thought I’d share some shots I snapped of the amazing pieces they gussied me into.
#KOHLSVIPS BUMPER FILMING + PERFORMANCE REHEARSALS
Saturday was the day left for casual, yet funky and camera ready. We had the chance to sit in on performance rehearsals for the wave-making Green Day performance, Award of Merit recipient Sting, and the wildly entertaining Bruno Mars. Here’s how damn cute I looked:

Sunday was the big day and boy oh boy was it big. There were lots of bits I’m sharing over on YouTube if you’d like a play-by-play. Negar kept it simple and so 90s for me. This sweater dress was mega comfy. Especially since it decided to rain all day. I was nice and toasty, cozy. Plus I got to wear a choker. I haven’t worn a choker in over a decade. Bonus level points, indeed. Here’s how fabulous I looked:
