Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

My youngest will be entering High School as a Senior which means no more standing at the bus stop in the rain…he drives, and no more back to school shopping…he wouldn’t be caught dead shopping with his mother…besides he has his own Debit Card.

His last year in High School is bittersweet but it doesn’t mean I can’t go “Back to School Shopping” and take advantage of the end of the season sales.

I may not be doing this…

But I can do this…

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

My normal daily commute into work is 90-minutes, but throw in a gapper delay or a car accident and it can easily turn into 2 hours which was the case this morning.  My ultimate fantasy is to have one of those space cars that George Jetson drove…remember that 1960’s cartoon, The Jetsons?

Life is so unpredictable and I was granted traveling mercies for which I am blessed and truly thankful!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

TGIF, this week has been such an emotional roller coaster that I am looking forward to just kicking back, relaxing and reflecting on our many blessings.  I am also looking forward to cleaning out the bottom of my closet and under the beds.  Spring is officially here so now it’s time to put away the winter shoes and boots and bring out the sandals.  I stopped at Target yesterday to pick up a few groceries and of course made a quick detour through the shoe department.  No shoe haul this time but my little eyes did spy several pairs of shoes on clearance that are on my wish list.  I also checked out the the Kate Young Collection, this celebrity stylist’s glam collection includes  jewelry, handbags and shoes ranging in prices  from $15.00 to $90.00.

The only pair that I added to wish list were these yellow cork sandals on sale for $24.99

Good afternoon friends, I just returned from the Exton Square Mall…I know I wasn’t supposed to spend any money this month but … oh well… I broke my fast…couldn’t help it!

Anywho, I had to return a skirt at JC Penney but instead of taking back my $17.00, I gave them an additional $1.00 for these three pieces.

 

Black Peplum Top

Peplum tops are also available in Fuschia, Green, and Aqua

High Waist skirt on clearance

High Waist Pencil Skirt – what color top should I wear with it?

Clearance Sweater at JCPBlock Sweater also available in blue/black stripes

 

I also stopped in at Payless…OMG – that post is coming next but RUN don’t WALK there this weekend, trust me you won’t be disappointed.  Don’t forget to show your AAA card for 10% discount and sign up online for their Rewards Program for additional savings.

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.
