Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
This week’s “You Choose The Shoes” may be a little bit more difficult because the shoes are similar in pattern and style, however, there can be only be one winner so I am really counting on you for this one.
Oh wait a minute, before we begin, here is the winner from last week’s challenge:
Thank you all for participating.
Okay, this week’s challenge is between Payless -vs- Ross
Because the dress is a simple purple sheath purchased from JCPenney, I knew it needed to be punched up with pops of color, so I added this necklace from Avon/Mark – what do you think?
Last season I wanted these pumps so badly that I drove to two Payless stores to get them. Thankfully, the Exton store called others and they found a pair in my size at the Concord Mall which is on my way home.
Okay, which ones do you choose?
You can see they are similar in color and pattern, but the heels on the Payless shoes are pink and the ones from Ross are gray. Can’t decide, take one more look then send me your choice.
BTW, hubby is now my photographer, which is why I may be smiling more. At first he made me nervous because he would give me these looks when I’d say, “nope, not right, let’s do it again“. However, I do think that he is enjoying himself but I have to watch him, otherwise, he’s focusing the camera on other parts of my body if you know what I mean!
I’m heading over to visit The Pleated Poppy for WIWW!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday
I have been sticking to my resolution of enjoying each day to it’s fullest and not just living for the weekend, however, to be honest, I am looking forward to Saturday! The days are getting longer so there’s more light during my evening commute, but it’s still a tiring commute so it’s only the weekends that I get to sleep in.
Today’s outfit with the exception of the animal print booties was totally thrifted from GW Boutique during their 20% off sale.
I picked up a few turtleneck sweaters even though I don’t particularly like how they emphasis my turkey neck, they do keep me warm. Mustard is one of my favorite colors and this Talbot’s sweater has just the right amount of stretch so I don’t feel like I’m being choked.
I fell in love with this belt but even more so with the price – $1.00 #winning
Just like black shoes, you can never have too many pairs of black pants and these are also Talbot’s. The booties were purchased at the Deb Shop last year at the Exton Square Mall.
So the grand total for today’s outfit minus the booties was $6.80!
Have you thrifted a good deal lately?

Hello Friends and Happy Thankful Thursday
Today’s outfit of the day is featuring a J. Crew Inspired Rosette Necklace that I won in a sponsored contest given by fellow blogger Susan at Charming Lucy. I got home late last evening after attending the Delaware Today Fashion Awards and a package was waiting for me on the kitchen table. When I saw it I immediately fell in love and knew I wanted to wear it before Spring.
Avon watch and blue “stone” ring helps to tie it all together.
Both the knit top and patterned skirt were previously purchased at Marshalls.
RocketDog Peep Toe pumps from The Shoe Dept in the Exton Mall
I am thankful to have received yet another wonderful surprise this week and tomorrow’s post will be a wrap up of my birthday. Linking up with some lovely ladies at A Lovely Blog Hop, come on over and share.
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
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!
Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?
No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!
Sweater and Slacks are both closet staples // Blue Suede Booties – The Shoe Dept // Scarf – Target
These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here. They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today. By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately? If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each! Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains. The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!
Have a good afternoon – Smooches!
