During all the big sales for the 4th of July last week, I took advantage of a coupon from JC Penney which was $10 when you spend $25 or more. Of course, I’d been shopping in the store a little more often than I usually do, knowing that there was no possible way to fit anything else in my closet, including another skirt, but I went ahead & checked out the store anyway. I’d been very successful in finding cute a-line, pencil, or sateen. This skirt by east 5th popped out at me, especially since I’m trying to get away from the darker colors.
It was originally priced at $36.00, but was on sale for $19.99. I picked up a few super cheap clearance items to make my coupon eligible. These items included a graphic printed floral skirt with some illusion ruche details & a black scoop neck pullover, both under $7. When I walked out of the store, the super long receipt read “You saved $69!” I couldn’t believe it. Aside from that, at the bottom of it, there was a provided website address where I cold fill out a survey about my shopping experience & get a 15% off coupon for my next purchase. I’m super stocked b/c I also know that JC Penney often has sales where you get 15 % off just for using your JCP credit card, so that’s already 30% off & all I have to do is show up for the sale! If you’re a skeptic about all this sale stuff & think JC Penney is just for frumpy old ladies, well, you’re wrong. With brands like I Heart Ronson, Nicole Miller, Mango, & a.n.a, you definitely can’t go wrong!
Even though I’m a skirt-aholic, you can find just about any & every stylish design of a well-structured skirt at the store. If you’re looking for a reliable black pencil skirt, or need something floral & whimsical like this one, check out their entire skirt department. I don’t think I’ve ever walked in there when there wasn’t a sale going on.
I’m looking forward to wearing this skirt not jut for the color, but b/c even though it’s a seriously bold floral print, I could try to pair it with some black opaque tights & suede peep toes. Also, I have a pair of pointed toe pumps in the same teal color in the skirt. If I find the right olive-green cardigan, it could make for a well-coordinated look. Any suggestions on how to wear this skirt? Have you had any super crazy fashion finds at this store? Leave some comments! Happy Styling!
