JCPenney: In the Showroom and On the Street

The JCPenney spring preview this morning was in the same building as the YSL sample sale, so as I walked down 18th Street this morning all I saw was LINE going down the block. Luckily I remembered the sale was happening today, so I skipped the line and walked right up to the JCPenney preview. I'm sure several of us were tempted to crash YSL while there. I was very, very good.

So was the preview. Arranged in several spring tableaus with themes like " bohemian," "seaside," and "clean," the clothes looked fantastic.

That fabulous little polka-dot dress in the back right is by Allen B, and it's so on my list. Come February or March, I'm also looking for these accessories.

If you haven't dropped by JCPenney Manhattan Mall yet, listen to Lisa, a JCPenney shopper and Fashion District designer that Craig and I shot a few months ago for the "Real New Yorkers" section on our website.

Like many Fashion District designers, Lisa shops 34th Street often. Last summer she had only glowing things to say about JCPenney's merchandising and selection. Note her garment bag and fabulous style. As I said on our website, hey, JCPenney, you need to feature Lisa on your website/facebook page!

This post makes me want to get a yellow skirt and wear it with a lavender top. I can assure you that I have never had that want before.

I'm impressed by that yellow skirt too.

la Belette & Wendy - me too! And the brown striped belt in between the two is adorable. Great styling in this preview, the Worthington stuff really surprised me and looked good.
