Off the Rack: Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler at JCPenney

Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler at JCPenney

During a recent trip to JCPenney, I finally had a chance to scope out Happy Chic, the affordable home decor line by interior design darling Jonathan Adler. If you love ELLE Decor or Domino, you will love Happy Chic. It's modern, bright and fun. There's bedding, furniture, decorative accents, kitchen & bath accessories and more featuring Adler's unmistakable prints and patterns. The store display at my newly revamped JCP looked amazing - almost like a Bloomingdale's display, without the Bloomie's prices! It's really good stuff, you guys.

Free People's October Lookbook: After Dark

Free People October Look Book

After Dark, Free People’s October lookbook, captures model Ashley Smith playing dress up in sexy bohemian outfits with the great New York City as her back drop. Embellishments such as fringe, beading, velvet, and even coins bring these garments to life giving them just the right amount of that quirky Free People touch. The moody and glamorous feel, captured by photographer Guy Aroch, is the perfect inspiration for a girls night out. The brown LA Nite Tank in the fifth picture is just $20, and they’re simply the best. They’re perfect for layering and they don’t ride up on you. The jewel tones are rich and appropriate for Fall, but will lead us nicely into the holiday season. I don’t know about you, but I’m melting over the fringe floral kimono in the first picture, and it’s just as beautiful in person! Now all you need is a great pair of heels and some red lipstick…is it the weekend yet?
