Remember my post about neighbors? I have quite a few really nice ones.
There's Jennifer. Her house has been deemed as "the party house"...by her five kids. The house has lots of toys, lots of snacks, a sandbox, a grassy place to play, and...a warm & hospitable host.
Also, meet Ashlie. She's super sweet. I can't remember right now, but I think she may be originally from the South (which doesn't surprise me a bit because she totally has that genuine southern kindness going for her).
Finally, you can't enter or exit a room without noticing Katie. She's extraverted and thoughtful. After I had my second baby (long before I even knew her), she stopped by my doorstep and delivered a tray of lasagna.
What do these three have in common? Well, aside from the fact that they're my neighbors, they're all wearing JCPenney in these pictures. JCPenney hooked us all up with gift cards to try out their brand new Liz Claiborne collection.
Jennifer is wearing the V-Neck Christmas Shopping Tee ($19.99) and the Chelsea Jean ($33.00). Ashlie is wearing the Jet Stretch Ring ($12.99), plus a pair of earrings similar to the SW Chandelier ($15.99). Katie is wearing the Sequin Crewneck Cardigan ($45.00).
I think we all agreed that the collection had some cute pieces, but it isn't as "young" or as "fashion-forward" as we had hoped. It's not that we want to look 14, but we don't really want to look 40 either. We're in our twenties and thirties - and we want our clothes to reflect that.
The prices are fantastic though...and gems can definitely be found for the whole family inside the store. For example, I am totally loving this Wool Bib Car Coat ($89.99) from the Clairborne line for men. And that model? Wow - he is somethin' else. ;)
Do YOU shop at JCPenney for yourself or your family? Why or why not?
