JCPenney Holiday Preview 2010

Some weeks end up being all about one store on Fashion Herald, and this week it's JCPenney Manhattan Mall. Between Nastia Liukin, Aldo shoe collaborations, and a holiday preview, I've been all JCPenney immersed...

Trenches, plaid, layers, tall boots, short boots, god I love the cold weather.

Last week, in sweltering heat, Craig and I dropped by the JCPenney holiday preview. I'm one of those people who is happy to see a table of little Christmas trees covered in gift cards standing next to an espresso bar in the middle of July. Then I know that no matter how disgusting and humid it is outside, the retail professionals will be there to remind us that winter will one day come again.

The home holiday preview did not disappoint, but I'll leave that for Intern Craig to cover next week. Here's a teaser: cupcake maker, OMG, yes.

Check out the holiday evening looks around the fireplace: I adore the glittery whites and the silvers. I want the entire look just to the left of the stockings with the beige top, white skirt, and black booties. That one-shouldered black top is pretty fabulous also.

Back to clothes: I was impressed with the styled holiday looks, above, particularly the evening wear. JCPenney continues improve on their fashion selections each season. There are also quite a few coats I have my eye on, including an aviator (everyone is demanding you get your flygirl on for the fall, ladies) and a faux furry thing. It's practically blue and looks like a cushy throw and I want to roll around in front of little Christmas trees in it.

Happy upcoming holidays! In four to five months.
