JCPenney, Who Knew?

Mommy Chick started the day super early today. She has a job later this morning, so woke up early to prepare. I didn't want her to be lonely, so I got up, too! I'm helping her by planting myself at the boobie buffet. Things like learning lines and blow drying hair are overrated.

Anyway...MC's job today is a little video for a website. The Website Owner People asked her to wear a black suit. During Nesting '09, MC gave more than 50 suits to Dress for Success. MC used to wear a suit for work everyday. I'm her boss now and of course do not require a suit. Still, I have no idea why she purged all her black jackets. She blames hormones.

So I suggested she call Jennifer from Another Online Mom. Jennifer is a complete budge-fashion guru and we knew she could help.

She promised we'd find a cute, affordable black jacket at JCPenney.

You know what? She was right!

MC has not been inside a JCPenney since posing for a family portrait in 1982. I've actually never been there. But we spied some super cute stuff!

MC got this jacket for today in black. It was on sale for $40.

We took a quick stroll through the store for you, and found some cute trendy pieces as well. We love maxi dresses. At first, MC thought this one was a little "Mrs. Roper-ish," but the more we look at it, the more we like it.

We also scouted new arrivals at Baby Gap for you. I'll be back later to highlight some of our fav's and tell you about a cool sale they have coming up later this week!


  1. I have been shopping their for two years now!

  2. Can't wait to hear about the baby gap sale! I hope its after Friday! I find out the sex on Friday and I can't wait to shop.:)

  3. I have been hearing about the great deals at JC Penney's for years and have yet to check it out. I go in the one in Hunters Creek every so often but never make it past Sephora.

  4. I've actually been impressed with JCP's updated sale ads in the Sunday paper! The maxi dress is definitely more Nicole Ritchie hippie chic vs. Mrs. Roper.

  5. My all time favourite place to shop when I visit the good ol' USA...we don't have Penneys up here in Canada :(

  6. The Baby Gap sale is Thursday through Sunday. We'll post on it a bit later.

    I have to admit I was shocked at JCP. There were definitely so many cute things at ridiculously low prices.
