Off the Rack: I Heart Ronson by Charlotte Ronson for JCPenney

Left: I Heart Ronson Chiffon Top, Approx. $21 (not available online). Right: I Heart Ronson Ruffle Dress, Original $44.00; Now $29.99

Recently I checked out the new-ish I Heart Ronson by Charlotte Ronson collection at JCPenney, and I thought it was really cute! Everything was 30% off at the time, with sale prices ranging from $9.99 to $29.99. Very affordable. The quality is on par with Target or Old Navy, perhaps a smidgen better, and the designs have a lot of potential. I think this collection has pieces that would be suitable for women of all ages, but if I had a teenage daughter, I'd want her to wear this stuff rather than Fabulosity or Abbey Dawn. Make sense?

Left: I Heart Ronson Dress, Original $58.00; Now $39.99. Loved the long skirt, since so many "dresses" these days are more like shirts. Right: What I wore while shopping (snuck that right past ya!)

cute cute cute (including the outfit you wore to shop). I have to agree about the short skirts/dresses lately!

I agree with you on the short dresses part, BB. The shirt dress you wore with the gray sweater is especially cute for school or work, but the length is really questionable. I feel that one runs the chance of flashing people with her hooha when wearing that dress!

I definately think this styles are more teenager friendly, but I do like the flowy floral print dress. Nothing I feel like rushing out and buying though. HOWEVER, I am loving that crossbody bag you have on BB. I have been on a quest to find a nice cross body bag and been mildy successful. I can find them, but of course the cost is over what I want to spend at this moment. But, I am in love with your bag, nice work.

I like your bag too. Fossil, is it? And your darling necklace! Is that from Tags and Stones? The featured clothes are cute as well.

Correct, bag's by Fossil via TJ Maxx and the necklace is Tag-n-Stones. Both have become almost daily go-to pieces :-)

I love this line. Almost too much. I want ot buy everything. And probably will if JC Penny's keeps sending me coupons on top of the sale.
