Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends, are you having a fun day!

Do you remember as a child spending hours outside running and playing games all day long?  Laughing, yelling, sweating and imagining, making up the rules as you went along, just plain fun.  What were some of your favorite games, I remember some of mine were:

Double Dutch

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.

I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads.   I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play!  Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.

I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?

JC Penney was the place to shop when I was in High School, but that was the late ’70’s, now most people think of JCP as a place to shop for bedroom slippers, nightgowns or bedding.  So last month when I went to the Exton Mall and by chance walked through I was surprised by what I saw.  Of course it was the $3/$5 and $10 clearance racks that initially caught my attention (remember this post) but as I looked around I was impressed by other areas including the lingerie, active wear, accessories, and jewelry departments.   Since then I’ve read posts by other bloggers who have had similar experiences mostly positive, and that got me thinking about how we could collectively inform others of the changes at JCPenney.

Unfortunately, we have been reading about their struggle in attracting consumers, the disastrous marketing campaigns and the loss of value in their stocks.  I have to admit that I personally don’t like the “us-vs-them” approach because it seems negative and negativity is too prevalent in today’s society.  JCPenney was established in 1902, and is a company that should be able to weather this storm, I hope their new CEO can create a positive approach in attracting customers back into the stores.

To assist in this endeavor I am starting a #B4JCP Campaign – (Bloggers for JCPenney).  This Facebook page and Twitter account will be a catalyst for bloggers to collectively showcase their fashion finds by posting pictures or just writing about their experiences in the store.

In my opinion JCPenney has evolved to become a more trendy and fashionable place to shop, the store’s layout is boutique-like, pleasant, and not intimidating regardless of your price point.  The layout and flow is comfortable and inviting, not cramped or overwhelming and they have the latest fashions for everyone.

Friday a new line was introduced, Joe Fresh Clothing by Canadian designer Joe Mimran.  There are high hopes that this will help turn JCPenney around, it may, however, I think the current in-store enhancements will assist in that endeavor – they just need to be discovered.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Delaware dodged the snowstorm bullet yesterday, we only got a little rain and heavy winds and today the sun is shining with temps hovering above the 40 degree mark.  Next week’s forecast call for highs in the 50’s to low 60’s, Spring is right around the corner, and more sunlight with the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday – don’t forget to “Spring Forward”.

Today’s outfit includes the color turquoise, a color that I like in clothing but not in jewelry.  Turquoise, The Gem of Native Americans was very popular in the 60’s and early ’70’s,  it seemed as though everyone had a big Turquoise ring or necklace, both men and women.  Sapphire Green is supposed to be the “it” color for Spring, but Royal and Cobalt blues are my favorites as well as the lighter shades like turquoise because of their calming effects.
