Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
Thank you all for voting last week and just as predicted it was a hard choice, but the winners were the
One pair in this week’s contest is an entry into the Credit Card Insiders Splurge vs Save Campaign.
You all know that as much as I love shoes, I find it very difficult if not impossible to spend a lot of money on them, which is why I love to thrift or pay less!
So without further adieu here are this week’s choices:
Avon Black & White Forever Pumps
Enzo Angiolini Black Pumps
The black and white dress was purchased last summer on clearance for only $8.00 at JCPenney. Another way to save is to wait until the end of a retail season to buy clothes, which is usually a month or so before the end of the actual season so you’ll have plenty of time to wear them.
I added pops of color to the classic black and white combination with an orange necklace thrifted new from Goodwill, orange watch from Avon and a multi-color bracelet.
These black patent leather Enzo Angiolini pumps which I had once seen online for $59.99 at Nordstrom were thrifted from The Salvation Army for only $14.99, so they definitely were a Save vs a Splurge purchase!
Okay which shoes do you choose?
Today, I will be linking up with Whitney at her Personal Style Linkup and Shana at Thrifters Anonymous. Have a great day and we’ll chat tomorrow.
Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
It’s going to be another cold weekend so I’m staying indoors to do some early Spring cleaning…yes, I’m even doing the boring chores. I don’t know about you, but I am super anxious for the warmer weather to get here so I can shed the layers and put away the snow shovel. Even though we have several more months before we get to that point, I wanted to at least get a jump start on it now.
I refuse to let the wintery winds of January stop me from thinking about or even shopping for the Spring season because now is the best time to do so. I recently signed up as an affiliate for Hannah Jane, a new online boutique with some great clothing and accessories at affordable prices. I found a few cute pieces on sale/clearance that I will be adding to my Spring wardrobe, take a look and let me know what you think.
I recently saw a fellow blogger in a classic white T-shirt, so I want to incorporate them into my wardrobe. This Yellow Bubble necklace would be a perfect accessory to jazz it up.
Fuchsia is such a fun Spring color and in jeans it will be great for a casual Friday outfit.
You know that I love all things Polka Dot and this top paired with a Houndstooth infinity scarf would be great to wear on an early chilly Spring morning or evening.
Or would it look better with the red scarf?
You definitely can’t go wrong with a White or Ivory button down blouse and I wish they had this skirt in stock!
I immediately feel in love with this striped comfy, casual knit dress. I could wear it with boots as shown or with pumps to work or even with ballet flats to run errands on the weekend. What do you think?
We do have a few months of cold weather ahead, so I’ll wear a turtleneck underneath this sweater.
AND… I finally found a pair of riding boots in my price range!
The great thing about shopping at Hannah Jane, other than the prices is that they offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50, and a flat $4.99 rate for orders under $50.
If you get a chance, head over to their website and take advantage of the 20% off one item sale and if you sign up for the Newsletter you’ll get an additional discount off of your first order. #winning

I make money on some products and services that I talk about on this website through affiliate relationships with the merchants in question. I get a small commission on sales of those products. That in no way affects my opinion of those products and services.
Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana!
I know that was corny but it popped into my head when I put on the orange belt.
It’s amazing what you keep in your head from childhood!
Belt – Avon // Booties – Unlimited from The Shoe Dept
Cowl neck top – Walmart // Skirt – JCPenney (clearance for $8.00)
What was your favorite “Knock Knock” joke?

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…
Which is what I did at TJ Maxx and Burlington Coat Factory!
Jessica Simpson Wedge Shoes @ TJ Maxx
Floral Dress – $15.00
Black & White Stripped Maxi – $19.99
Unlisted loafers – $19.99
Bandolino Blue Patent Leather Wedges – $19.99
I didn’t purchase, but these Bandolino pumps were so comfy @ $24.99
Leaving TJ Maxx I saw Barbie, a true fashionista, whose skirt and top were purchased at Nzinga’s Boutique. A perfect outfit to wear out and about running errands or shopping (s/o to Steve aka Ken – lol)
Next I drove down Naamans Road to Burlington Coat Factory at the Tri State Mall
Maxi Dress – $14.98
Floral hi-low dress – $6.98
Infinity Scarf $5.98
Infinity Scarf – $4.98
I also purchased a pair of CitiClassifed Pumps ($9.98) and Yellow Evening Bag ($7.98) – I love clearance racks just as much as thrifting!
Next year we will be paying College tuition so there will be no more Back to School Shopping for me, also bittersweet!
Have you done any Back to School shopping or taken advantage of the end of season sales?

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!
The weather has warmed up nicely and today is a beautiful Spring day.
Dress via JCPenney – On clearance for $6.40!

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
clearance ankle strap sandals and wedges
Mossimo and xhiliration Heels
Mossimo Color Block Sandals – $19.99
Lonely Prabal Gurung dress on the clearance rack
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.
Peplum tops are also available in Fuschia, Green, and Aqua
High Waist Pencil Skirt – what color top should I wear with it?
Block 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.
I look forward to reading your posts and seeing your outfits on the Bloggers4JCPenney Facebook page – have fun!
