JCPenney Discover Spring Style Event




Last Tuesday I attended the JCPenney Discover Spring Style event at the Lincoln Center in New York City to see highlights from the upcoming spring fashion collections. Celebrity designers in attendance included Cindy Crawford (Cindy Crawford Style), Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (Olsenboye), Michele Bohbot (Bisou Bisou), Charlotte Ronson (I Heart Ronson) and Nicole Miller (Nicole by Nicole Miller). You could tell that the crowd (myself included) was thrilled to see Cindy and the Olsens briefly introduce their collections before models took to the runway to showcase the latest trends: Modern safari, brights, florals, lots of denim and bold accessories. Celebrity hoopla aside, I think JCP offers a lot of affordable, stylish pieces to get excited about this season. My favorite piece was a pink dress with a giant side ruffle, hands down! What do you think about the latest spring offerings? Have you shopped JCP yet? Keep reading to see all the looks!

Such a flashback... I used to wear the same outfit with the flowery dress and denim vest in the 90's!

Do you have the details on the graphic print/watercolor dress? (5th from the bottom.) I'm not crazy about most of it, but I WANT that frock! :-)

I love JCP, aside from their awesome sales the quality of the clothes they carry is really good. I also love their shoe selection, I can always find something really cute and comfortable.

I'm pretty sure I wore that denim/floral dress combination Easter 1992, but the some of the other looks are really cute!

Love the animal print outfits and the outfit with the turban/headwrap. Are those from the same collection?

I love the thought of jumping into Spring clothes, I'm so over the New England winter! I never think to search JCP but ironically I just received an email announcing a coupon, thought I'd share with everyone. 2CASHIN is the coupon code gets you $20 off $100+, $15 off $75+ or $10 off $50 or more. happy shopping.
