Dress Obsessed: Pretty In Pink

As you know, I loves to loves me some ‘PENNEYS so when I was invited to check out their new customer experience and do some shopping I was pretty stoked. I wear a lot of Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line and ALSO get a lot of my workout clothes there (including my favorite pink Adidas jacket.) This weekend I put on my shopping chanclas and lurked the new changes. In the past, JCPenney was famous for their constant one-day sales, special coupons and discounted signage. This month they introduced Fair and Square Pricing, a new sales structure where no coupons are needed and items are already set at their low, fair price. Right away, I noticed that the absence of discounted signage made everything look more neat and clean. VERY VISUALLY PLEASING. After picking out some items from my favorite Ronson-wear and MNG by Mango to try on, I checked out the shoes section and was happy to find these very Korkease-esque platform sandals at $30, HOW COULD I RESIST? I also found a great pair of black boots with a SECRET wedge for only $15. NOT BAD!

So here is my first outfit made up of JCP finds! You know I can’t deny a pink floral! The dress ($15!) is from Mary Kate and Ashley’s Olsenboye line. You might remember they made the Clarissa Explains It All boots that I wore ALL THEE TIME. BTW has anyone seen the movie Beastly where MK is a GOTHIC TEEN WITCH? It’s been sort of an inside joke slash prank  for Emi and I for the past two years and I bought her the DVD for Valentine’s day. Can’t wait to finally watch this EDGY VERJ of Beauty and Beast (~~tale as old as time~~) I actually wore this outfit to the LA Zine Fair which was RULL COOL and I will talk about in another post(s) since I bought like $60 worth of zines.

Dress: Olsenboye for JcPenney, shoes: JCPenney, vintage coat, knee socks: Target, various jewelry from various places (chola stores), nail polish: Milani’s One Coat Glitter in Twinkle.

Why is my mood ring always black? I feel like Vada Sultenfuss.

FTC disclosure: I was given a gift card to shop from the very nice people at JCPenney.

You are rocking that lipstick, sister. Werque.

What’s even wild is this lip is from the Fafi Mac line! What is this, three years old???

Love how you’ve kind of found your wardrobe groove in JCPenney! The things you pick from there always look great on you.

I never woulda thought those platform sandals could look so cute! I gotta add JC Penney to my list of lurks, it’s been too long since I’ve visited them.

Um, when I saw you in that outfit from across the room at L.A. Zine Fest I thought I might be in love with you. Now that I am reading your blog I can confirm that I am in love with you. Do you and Emi need a third wheel?

P.S., here you guys are on my blog: http://cartoon-heart.com/2012/02/21/l-a-zine-fest/ It was awesome to meet you guys! ❤

I have the orange-y one too! They are pretty colors! Glittery! That was one of the best guest lines M.A.C. did (except for the cheap packaging (sticker labels on lipsticks that easily came off)

9 marie { 02.24.12 at 9:48 am }

Thank you! I know, who woulda thunk???

10 marie { 02.24.12 at 9:48 am }

Vada Sultenfuss was basically my hero growing up. I immediately got a mood ring after I saw that movie and I’m literally wearing one right now. Her influence still holds strong, apparently. Mine is always blue/purple, though…I think that’s good? ANYWAY, I’m digging what you’re wearing, girl!
