Spring 2013 finds…where?

on February 1, 2013

So I recently went to JCPenney’s to look for comfy flip flops that have better support. I’ve been experiencing pains on my right heel, especially in the morning…the first steps after getting out of bed are not pleasant. My husband had fasciitis plantar a few years back; he says my symptoms are exactly like his. Aging is so fun! Anyway, I had to give in to reality and actually consider wearing shoes with support and cushion..problem is, most of them are hideous. I have a collection of really cute Capri leather flip flops from J.Crew that I adore but they are the worst for my feet….sigh! I did find a good pair of Clark’s flip flops that weren’t ugly (sorry, that’s the best compliment I could muster); we’ll see how they stand up (no pun intended).

The nice surprise though about going to JCPenney’s is the huge array of great new Spring fashion. Also, the store itself looked like it was re-organized…it looked less cluttered and had a nice area of “basics”, similar to what J.Crew and Gap carries but less frou frou. Don’t get me wrong…I love JC frou frou but when my budget doesn’t, this is a great alternative.  So if you haven’t been to JCPenney’s in a while or at all…take a look, you might find something worth picking up.

This MNG brand sweater looks oddly familiar ;)…it’s clearly a dup to the J.Crew version below it – the MNG sweater is $35 while the J.Crew handknit fair isle sweater is currently on sale for $460.

    I love JCP. I like it so much more now that they stopped the crazy sales and merchandise better. Their items are often a great alternative for the high end brands, especially the trendy items that will be so out in a month.

    This is a great post, would you consider reposting to the FB Page – Bloggers4JCPenney – I really want them to succeed and think bloggers would be a big influence.

  4. […] re-discovered JC Penney’s as a source of affordable fashion basics (see old post here).  I usually shop there for household stuff like towels, beddings, small kitchen […]
