I love walking into a preview and being able to immediately eliminate the sense of wonder, if the items on display are affordable or not. With a JCPenney event, I relish the fact that they all could be mine! With eyes wide open, I drank in the lineup of brands, largely exclusive to the retailer at the preview, feeling each for its tactile quality and perhaps even sliding an arm or two into a light weight, svelte spring jacket or two.
Nicole by Nicole Miller, Liz Claiborne, I Heart Ronson, and Call It Spring are a few of the brands whose pieces I’m most looking forward to seeing in-stores in the spring; how about you? See the slide show above for some of my most coveted pieces from the preview, along with a few items to surely put a smile on your face (hint: one of the items involves a larger-than-life fancy drinking vessel…).
