Behind the Scenes: America Living for JCPenney Video Shoot by Style Coalition Still Photos

In June 2010, JCPenney invited 10 Style Coalition bloggers to share their favorite moments and the outfits matching them, as part of their "Made For" campaign. Earlier I shared with you a short teaser video introducing each of the bloggers who participated, and now we have behind-the-scenes still photographs from the video shoot which give you a much better look at the clothes! I am honored to have been included in this group of fashionable, successful women, each with a unique style that's all her own. Many of the items used in the shoot are still available in stores and online at JCPenney, like my linen/cotton cargo pants (on sale for $39.99).

Click through to see all 10 bloggers rocking pieces from the American Living for JCPenney collection along with items from their own wardrobes! (Shown in alphabetical order)

I'm glad that they reached out to some other bloggers. Bloggers who personal style appeals to a broad range of women; and not the same tired-ass, overhyped blogger all the mags features over and over again! Kudos to JCP!

I had to go get those cargos!! Of course they are supposed to be cropped but on those of us who are fun-sized they hit the ankle.
