I like to dress cute. What can I say, I enjoy wearing clothes that are in style and make me feel like a girl. Since becoming a mother though I feel like I haven’t wanted to spend a lot of money on clothing for myself. For one thing, it often gets ruined, either by my children or my dogs, and it’s hard to justify spending a large amount of money on something that could potentially be barfed on. I love shopping at Nordstrom and J Crew and don’t get me wrong, they do have good deals from time to time, but for the most part I have been finding some really cute stuff at JC Penny lately. What the WHAT? That’s right. JC Penny. I know what you’re thinking…that’s where my grandmother gets her velour jumpsuits and her old lady bras. But, I’m telling you they have really stepped up their game the past few years! I have secretly been shopping there for a while, and I get compliments A LOT on things I wear. Sometimes I offer up where I got it and people are always shocked!
I was in the store earlier this week to return an online purchase, when I spotted a cute white puffer vest. Regular price $40, on sale for $19.99, and they ALWAYS have coupons, so I quickly hopped on my phone and found a 30% off coupon…making it $13.99! I walked by the clearance section and they had several racks of summer items marked down to $4.97! That’s insane. But what is even crazier is that they let you use coupons on the sale items too! So instead of paying a whopping $4.97, it was $3.48. Does that even cover their cost for making the shirt? I don’t really care. All I know is that I got a great deal on 3 items and I spent $21. That’s just absurd in my opinion, but it was too good to pass up!
Here are a few other finds I have recently purchased from JC Penny and I love them ALL!
Back in the day when Jean Claude Van Dam was a popular movie star, my Dad used to call this store Jean Claude Penne, I suppose to make it sound fancier. Well, fancy or not, I have always been pleased with my purchases and I will continue to be a patron. They also have great deals on kids clothing and during the holidays they carry a lot of the popular toys. Some of the stores even have a Sephora located inside, so it’s like killing 2 birds with one stone! You can get your beauty supplies and find a cute shirt or dress for date night all in one stop. I love the efficiency. So, if you are stuck in a fashion rut and don’t want to spend a lot of money, give it a chance! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Oh, and don’t forget to look for a coupon before you checkout! Happy shopping
