First of all, I love your blog and I am so excited to have seen this giveaway! I really enjoyed the video.

I LOVE the American Living Eyelet Skirt, in white. I would wear it to the beach on a sunday, take a walk on the boardwalk and then a big family BBQ in the evening. Paired with a light floral top (like the American Living Squareneck) it is the perfect summer day to night outfit!

I love the Patch Skirt!

I would wear it for a family picnic in the park, or a baseball game! Nothing says summer and American Living like baseball!! :-)
#2 Beth (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 11:26
Okay, so this is probably not what you had in mind when you said "pick your favorite piece" & "how would you wear it"; but I love the PJ section! Haha :o).

I love the American Living Short Sleeve Sleep Tee & Short Robe. I would throw on the short robe over my sleep tee on weekends. On weekends, we like to get up a little later than usual and actually put together a real breakfast (as opposed to a breakfast bar-to-go): Fruit and yogurt, nutella on toasted bread, potato omelet, and so on. There's also the cappuccino, and homemade mango smoothie. And then we take all of this, still in our sleepwear, and sit outside on the patio when it's sunny out. This is such a peaceful, welcome moment that we look forward to after such a stressful week.

And that would be my made for moment :o). Not quite as seemly as, say, real day-clothes, but it's heaven for me!
#3 Claudia H. on 2010-07-19 11:34
AI would pick the American Living Tiered Sheath Dress-Black. I am going to a wedding in November to be a bridesmaid and we are supposed to pick our own LBD and I think this dress is perfect! I would wear it with my Chinese Laundry platform pumps and accent with some turquoise jewelry.
#4 Faith (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 11:58
I'm loving the sweetness of the American Living Eyelet Skirt. I've been looking for a classic white skirt that's full enough to wear on my cruiser. My moment: It's peddling with my hubby to Sunday brunch in my eyelet skirt.
#5 IF on 2010-07-19 12:03
Lady, you knocked that one right outta the park! You look and sound amazing on camera. Well done!
#6 Sally (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 12:11

#7 Athena on 2010-07-19 12:11

From American Living: the Riverstone Hobo in green.

My made for moment: heading to a sunshine-filled park or beach with a blanket, my bulldog and my husband for a Sunday picnic. Since I'm expecting a baby, a fashionable carry-all is a must in my near future! There is nothing like a classic hobo bag in a bold color. cute are you in that video? You did a fantastic job - congrats!

#20 Cynthia on 2010-07-19 13:29
The American Living Tiered Midriff Dress (in White) is cuuuttte! It's a very versatile and simple dress--just my style--that can be easily paired with flats or heels or a jean/leather jacket or a cardigan.

I would wear it on a weekend, no special weekend, just a weekend. One that I could relax on, hangout with my friends, go shopping, or just take a walk through town.

That's my "made for" moment (weekend) outfit.

Thanks for the giveaway chance! Great blog!!

#21 Chuck (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 13:32
My made for moment would be driving the cart for my husband at the golf course.( Don't play myself but love to be on the course, so peaceful!) And I would wear the American Living Stripe Ruffle Top. So cool and comfortable looking and so cute! Put that together with navy blue shorts and a red cap. Perfect!

#24 Kerensa on 2010-07-19 14:15
The American Living Crop Pant would be perfect for wearing out for a fun filled day with family cruising the zoo and hanging out at the park and then at night it could be spiced up with a cute top and some strappy sandals for drinks with the girls and some fun on the dance floor.

That would be my Made for Moment!
#25 AutumH on 2010-07-19 14:15
the empire waist dress in colonial cream looks like a really classic cut. great for the office with a cardigan or blazer, but also nice for weddings with wedges and an updo!

#26 chelsea on 2010-07-19 14:41

#28 Stephanie on 2010-07-19 15:49

#29 Dina's Days (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 15:51
The "American Living Floral Print Skirt" (the one in mostly black) looks like it's made for going from the office to the dance floor... at least my kind of dance floor, where the dances are waltz and swings. Maybe not for the clubs. ;-) That, and the Sleeveless Gingham Shirt looks like it's for looking cute on lazy summer days, relaxing by the pool with a cold glass of iced tea. :-)
#30 Sandra on 2010-07-19 16:19
For my friend's wedding, I'd wear the American Living V-Neck Empire Dress-Eggplant. at work, I can picture wearing this with some boots too.
#31 lise on 2010-07-19 16:30
My favorite piece is the American Living Skirt, which is a black/red multi patchwork pattern, in an A-line cut. It would be perfect for a picnic in the park, and a long walk afterward if worn with just a V-neck tee and some strappy wedges. Maybe some wooden bead accessories to pull it all together.
#32 Jessica on 2010-07-19 16:46
I love the American Living V Neck Dress in Eggplant. I would wear it with black heels and silver jewelry.

The description says, "Go from office to romantic dinner in this flattering matte jersey dress." That's exactly what my "made for" moment would be about. I'd wear it to work on a Friday then head off to a nice dinner with my boyfriend. :-)
#33 Gina on 2010-07-19 16:56
Yay!!! I'm so excited for you! You look fantastic!
#34 Claudia on 2010-07-19 16:58

#36 Nicole on 2010-07-19 18:15
I love the tile print dress. It was made for going to work. I work as a teacher in a summer school and we are the only class with out air conditioning! I need something flowy, sleeveless and appropriate for 5th grade boys lol.
#37 Melissa (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 18:35
I like the American Living Tiered Sheath Dress-Black. It would be perfect to wear to a wedding reception.
#38 Mami2jcn (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 18:36

#40 Ashley B on 2010-07-19 19:29
American Living is made for my EVERYDAY MOMENTS!!! I wear the white peasant top with a dark denim pencil skirt and cute yellow sandals when I take the kids to storytime. (I can't wait to get the madras peasant top for fall!) The linen cargo pants are great for summer parties and casual dinner with the hubbie. I also have the panel sheath dress in black... I'm waiting for a special occasion for that one!

#42 elle sees (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 19:56
The American Living Tile Print Dress with a rugged pair of Boots or girlie sandals would be perfect for a afternoon at the dog park and visit to our community garden.
#43 Gina B on 2010-07-19 20:11
Those linen cargo pants, ruched at the bottom seam are amazing. I like the way they can be brought up to be long or short capris. I would wear them with my new brown braided leather belt, brown gladiators, an orange-striped shirt and a big gold pair of hoop earrings. Perfect for meeting my friends for lunch this summer.
#44 Kat on 2010-07-19 20:19
My favorite piece is the American Living Tile Print Dress and I would wear it with simple, yet chic sandals, for back to school shopping with my nieces and nephew. It could then take me to a casual dinner with friends.

#46 Phoebe on 2010-07-19 20:53
My made for moment involves coffee, but that usually happens in the afternoons for me. My husband and I have a standing coffee date around 3 pm nearly every day and we are often joined by our great friend and her 2 year old daughter, who is our god daughter. It is definitely the best part of my day!

This skirt would be perfect for the hot summers in Virginia and casually having a vanilla latte!|dresses+%2b+skirts&Ne=4294957900+598+5+23+3+29+585+596+593+1010+1011+1031+18+904+949+833&CatTyp=RLE&Dep=AMERICAN+LIVING&N=4294953014&Pcat=AMERICAN+LIVING&Cat=womens&Nao=21&PSO=0&CmCatId=70660|70662

#49 Converse Star 70 (Homepage) on 2010-07-19 23:00
The mock-wrap gathered dress in grape is made for a girls day out! Shopping, lunch and a movie are the perfect outings for this dress, plus its dressy enough to wear out later for a night on the town.
#50 shopfreak on 2010-07-20 00:15
I think I have found a LBD to add to my closet: the Cutaway Tie Dress. Love the gathers at the neckline. I would pair it with turquoise heels and my abalone cuff.

#57 Andrea on 2010-07-20 06:11
Really loved the commercial with the beautiful images of the market. You looked and sounded relaxed and perfectly presented. The turquoise nails with the red espadrilles was a dynamite touch! Congratulations!
#58 Sandy on 2010-07-20 06:23
I really like the American Living Tank Top (in pink). Cute and simple - I would wear it to a summer dinner with the in-laws. It's really difficult to find a flattering tank that you can tuck into clothes for a more polished look. The neckline also lends itself well to necklaces
#59 Jo on 2010-07-20 06:32
Oh, I would love to wear the eyelet peasant top with a wide belt and a long flowy skirt. And big hoop earrings! And heels! Very Sophia Loren!
#60 Ursula on 2010-07-20 07:44
I practically live in skirts during the summer. They're cooler and more comfortable than pants (especially jeans), so I gravitated to the American Living skirts. The Floral Print Skirt is kicky, in its fullness, fresh in its mix of florals, and still manages a little sophistication in its black background.

I'd wear it with a crisp white shirt and red strappy high-heeled sandals to a gallery or exhibit opening. Once a month throughout the summer, our town holds Gallery Strolls. Art gallery owners schedule openings on the same Friday evening. It's a great evening out: seeing new artwork and catching up with friends. I'd feel very cool and confident in this outfit.
#61 Clara on 2010-07-20 08:08
I love the American Living Navy Blue striped top. I think it would be perfect for weekend visits to the Cape!
#62 Megan on 2010-07-20 08:08
I love all of the Peasant tops! I'd pair the white one with the patch skirt and canvas shoes to visit my daughter at college for the Summer parent's weekend.
#63 Sandra on 2010-07-20 08:47
I love the whole collection, but my "made for" moment outfit is the American Living Stripe Henley with the American Living Straight Fit Capri Pant. It is made for playing with my son in the park.
#64 Shelley on 2010-07-20 10:13
The peasant tops and the patch skirts, Perfect for YARD SALES RUMMAGE STORES, FLEA MARKETS.. yep..mmm,sigh, that's what i'd do :-)
#65 Donna on 2010-07-20 10:34
The "made for" moment for me would be the American Living Denim Capri Pant in white, plus my white & blue striped shirt with gold "nautical" jewelery, and my white flip flops with a gold chain across the top of it.
#66 Elizabeth on 2010-07-20 10:34
I would pick the American Living Tile Print dress with embellished sandals and gold jewelry for a late summer/early fall cookout. It would be perfect for a party that transitions from afternoon to night around the bonfire!
#67 AliciaS on 2010-07-20 10:47

#69 Heather on 2010-07-20 10:57
love the American living print short sleve shirt (in black) that has a polka dot print to it. Pair that with the eyelet skit (in white) grab the bradford tote and some esperildas and that would be my go to summer outfit! I can see myself shopping in cape cod, laying outside with a glass of lemonade, a good book and a cool breeze. I can also see the outfit transitioning into a night outfit on the boardwalk or to a summer carnival. Ridig rides, eating cotton candy. just all around american.

#85 Ysenia Ramirez on 2010-07-21 03:38
I love the american living mock up dress in grape. I would wear it to boyfriend's work functions. It's a formal go to dress that isn't in black. So definately will bring some color to me. The color is just beautiful!
#86 alex on 2010-07-21 07:40
Ok, I clearly read your instructions but it's so HARD to choose. I love all of the tops. I'm always in search of a super cute top as I feel like I never have enough. I love the peasant tops and the striped henley's.
#87 teresa on 2010-07-21 08:52
Our favorite activity as a family during the summer is going to the beach - walking on the pier, playing in the sand - it's all wonderful and free! The AL cropped pant in khaki would blend well with the sand, but it'd look fabulous with the black halter top (for more sun exposure) and a cross body bag for snacks for the kids.
Thanks BB!
#88 Cyndi on 2010-07-21 10:39
I live in skirts and dresses in the summer. The American Living Eyelit Skirt is so sweet and would be the perfect piece to wear for my Made For moment -- a picnic in Prospect Park, Brooklyn with a few of my closest friends.
#89 Adrienne (Homepage) on 2010-07-21 12:01
I would love the tiered sheath dress in black! My anniversary is coming up and I could definitely see myself wearing it to a broadway show and then walking with my husband in our favorite place - Washington Square Park. I would accent it with multiple strands of pearls my gold shimmery Hale Bob heels.
#90 Christine Hamilton on 2010-07-21 12:03
I would wear the white denim capri pant and roll sleeve shirt on vacation in August. We're going on a cruise and this would be a perfect dinner outfit for those slightly cooler nights at sea. I would wear it with a pair of bow earrings and blue striped espadrilles.
#91 J.H. on 2010-07-21 12:08
I would wear the black and khaki striped henley with the black pockets and pair it with the khaki cropped pants. I'd probably finish it off with my black flat sandals and dangly earrrings. I love cute but comfortable clothes so it would be my go-to outfit for running around town with my 2.5 year old.
#92 Nicole on 2010-07-21 14:53
I would pick the American Living Tiered Sheath Dress-Black..... So cute! I am currently pregnany so it would be flattering and perfect for a fall wedding we need to attend! I would wear it with some jeweled gold sandals and lots of funky gold jewelrey...and of course my baby bump!

American Living Mock Up dress in Grape. Purple is my favorite color, and I love to find any awesome new purple dresses! I'd definitely wear this to work functions, so I don't blend in with the sea of black.
#95 Stephanie on 2010-07-22 18:08
My made for moment would be a nice get together by the pool and a bbq! I would choose the American Living halterkini and swim skirt and a pair of light blue sandals for a easy outfit for the pool or lounging!!!

I would chose the Mosaic Print Double V-Neck Dress and wear it to a summer concert in the park!
#97 saretta (Homepage) on 2010-07-24 03:31
I would wear the solid ruffle top in grove orange paired with my army green boyfriend chinos, tan wedges on my feet and wooden and gold bangles on my arm. That is a typical outfit for me while I run around with my 2 boys this summer:)

I am, like a few others, a hoarder of Little Black Dresses. I can't get enough of them. However, I've been on the lookout for one that could take me from day to night time with minimal effort. This is where the "Gathered Empire Waist Dress" comes into play. I can top it off with a crisp white blazer or a colorful cardigan, a great statement necklace (J.Crew F `10 anyone?), and a pair of kitten heels and I'm off to work. Once the sun sets, goodbye layers and hello to some strappy heels, smokey eyes, and the boyfriend/ a great group of girlfriends.

Great give-a-way once again!

My Favorite: American Living® 'Bradford' Tote

Doubles as a great catch-all purse AND a summer beach bag.

Clothes dont always fit but a great bag does!
#100 Katie on 2010-07-24 09:11
I love the American Living tile print dress. It reminds me of summer in Greece, but could also work for fall. My "made for" moment would be wearing it on a first date. Easy, breezy elegance. Beautiful.
#101 Joy on 2010-07-24 11:33
The mock-wrap dress in cobalt is perfect for a dinner I have coming up. I also love your outfit in the video. Perfect for the weekends!
#102 Helen on 2010-07-24 12:28
I love the tile print dress! I would wear it with a thick brown belt and wedge sandals to my brother-in-law's rehearsal dinner in August. Easy and casual but still pulled together. So cute.

#104 giselle on 2010-07-24 15:41
American Living Tiered Sheath Dress-Black is my choice!

I need to get some more "adult" looking clothes to network for fancy events during the summer. I think this dress would make me feel sexy and confident. Plus, it look pretty hot at a dinner our with the Mr. Melissa :-)
#105 Mel on 2010-07-24 17:30
I love peasant tops, as they make me look slimmer and can go with almost anything!

My favorite from American Living is the red Print Peasant Top. It can be dressed up with a black skirt and pumps for the office or dressed down with jeans and flip-flops for a day out shopping. It's versatile and comfortable.
#106 Martina on 2010-07-24 18:40
I love the patch skirt, its made for my style! Great job in the video, you are so beautiful :-)
#107 suzy (Homepage) on 2010-07-24 21:12
I would wear the American Living Button Down skirt in black to the office with a knit top tucked in and espadrilles or some killer peep toe sandals. I might also wear it a casual dinner out with the girls paired with a slub knit v-neck t-shirt and flip flops. I might even wear a army green military jacket with it too to play off the buttons. The buttons down the front make this skirt a very versatile and timeless piece!
#108 Heather on 2010-07-25 09:03
I think the American Living Solid Ruffle Solid Top, paired with the American Living Tab Waist Pant and brown belt would be an awesome outfit for the office, especially on a warm summer day!
#109 Ros on 2010-07-25 10:15
The American Living Sleeveless Gingham Shirt would be perfect with my skinny jeans and keds

I think the Cutaway Tie Dress w/Pleats is simple, classic and beautiful. The price is amazing. I will be purchasing it to wear to my SIL's upcoming rehearsal dinner.
#112 Courtney C on 2010-07-25 21:48
I am definitely picking the American Living Gathered Side Jersey Dress in Black.

I have an upcoming internship interview and this dress is definitely the perfect choice. Not only does it look sophisticated and chic, but also it is versatile and can be worn to many other occasions.
#113 Jamille on 2010-07-26 00:30
I love the American Living X-Back Pleated Dress w/Pockets.

I would wear it on my first day of work. After a couple of months of unemployment, and finally getting a job, this is my "Made For" Moment.|70662
#114 Charity S. on 2010-07-26 13:26
I can definitely see myself wearing the American Living Stripe Henley and the Denim Capri Pant with some cute sandals for a casual Saturday. That outfit is made for my favorite Saturday activities: shopping and watching movies.

#116 Anne (Homepage) on 2010-07-27 10:52
I love the American Living striped boatneck top in pink. I would tuck it into highrise white denim shorts, and pair it with navy oxfords, and a navy mini crossbody bag. Last I would wear gold nautical earrings.
#117 Shawna on 2010-07-27 12:00

American Living Eyelet Skirt

I would pair it with a tank top and flip-flops!
#121 Deanna G. on 2010-07-27 22:35
My husband and I finally (after 8 years!) have very similar work schedules, which means we can go on date nights whenever the mood takes us! I think the Jersey Gathered Dress in Eggplant was "made for" throwing on when I need to get fancy, even if it's just to go to the second-run theater or a diner!
#122 Rachael on 2010-07-28 11:40
The American Living mock wrap gathered dress in cobalt with strappy heels and diamond studs for summer weddings!
#123 Cheryl lynn on 2010-07-28 20:04
American Living Gathered Dress-Black Multi Dot paired with a simple cardi belt, & heels for work. And I could match it with a simple clutch for a dinner date.
#124 Naomi on 2010-07-29 22:01
I'd wear the yellow ruffle henley while chasing after my littler toddler. It makes my day when she enjoys our play so much that she giggles.
#125 Fia (Homepage) on 2010-07-30 01:22
My favorite piece from American Living for JC Penny is the black multi-color Floral Print Skirt. It's a great piece that can transition from being paired with a simple cardigan and black pumps for work, to being paired with pink ballet flats and a tank top for strolling with friends and enjoying lunch in the park. The colors within the piece make it very versatile, and the skirt looks like it would make for a great fit on all different body types!

That would be my moment, made for picnicking by the pond!
#126 Brenna on 2010-07-30 11:41
I love the ruffled henley! My Made for moment would be wearing it with my favorite (slightly ripped up) jeans for a cozy Sunday reading the newspaper with a big mug of tea, my doggie in my lap, and my husband on the couch next to me.|tops&Ne=4294957900+598+5+23+3+29+585+596+593+1010+1011+1031+18+904+949+833&CatTyp=RLE&Dep=AMERICAN+LIVING&N=4294953017&Pcat=AMERICAN+LIVING&Cat=womens&Nao=21&PSO=0&CmCatId=70660|70662

I love the American Living Gathered Empire Waist Dress in Black. I'd wear it to my college graduation in September, which is my "made for moment". I'd wear it with a pair of nice heels and a gorgeous necklace. I want to look nice to receive my diploma and remind myself "You did it"! Thanks for the giveaway!
#128 amy h on 2010-07-31 07:31
I really like JPC's American Living V-Neck Empire Dress, and I would wear it to my "Made For" moment: going out for a really nice dinner with my hubby. I'd add freshwater pearls and a pashmina scarf.
#129 Louise (Homepage) on 2010-07-31 09:30
I'm loving this American Living line @ JcP! Fresh, stylish, versitile and affordable! My "made for" moment would be taking a sunset stroll on a warm summer evening with my family!
#130 Amanda on 2010-07-31 13:58
My made for moment... "Rockin It" Either with my family, enjoying the weekend with my family, at work or simply cleaning the house. I always feel happier when I look good. The American Living s/s cardigan, sweater tank top, and denim capri pants help me look amazing and feel comfortable.

I'd choose the solid ruffle solid top in that melon color because of the ruffle and the's amazing. I'd pair it with crisp chocolate cargo pants rolled up to just under the knee and turquoise accessories, like turquoise boat shoes and a turquoise coral necklace.
#132 Jodie on 2010-08-01 00:13
