First Look: Charlotte Ronson for JCPenney

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Designer Charlotte Ronson, the twin sister of DJ Samantha Ronson (LiLo's girlfriend), will be collaborating with JCPenney on a budget-friendly collection called I Heart Ronson. The new line will be available starting this February, and will stay true to Ronson's "rock babe aesthetic."

Just when I was beginning to tire of designer diffusion lines, JC Penney went and hit the ball out of the park with this one. It's too cold (temperature-wise) to get genuinely excited about these looks for Spring, but trust me, when February rolls around, I'll be first in line to see the goods at JCPenney--a store I haven't shopped at in eons.

Keep reading to preview first-look photos from the collection.

I'm excited- I just hope with the floaty fabrics and lower price points, we're not seeing too low of quality as well (ala Tarjay with their designer lines.) Can't wait to find out! :-)
