Let's get fresh

So a lot of the style blogs I read on the reg are written by Canadian women. (Okay, 1 2 3 of them, but they're also three of my faves and biggest influences.) Anyway, one thing they all have in common, besides being classy and stylish and just all-around awesome, is that I've noticed the brand Joe Fresh on each of these gals' blogs. I've always thought those pieces were pretty cool, be they sweaters or accessories or what have you. I even have a shirt that Sydney sent me in a bloggy exchange that I love. But I've never really been able to shop the store itself, as I'm not a fan of online shopping (nothing fits!) or driving to NYC/New Jersey/Canada just to shop one store. So. No Joe for me.

Until now. (Cue evil laughter.)

Yup, Joe Fresh is coming to JCPenney, adding just one more reason to the ever-growing list of reasons I need to start shopping there again. Seriously, why am I not shopping at JCP?

Ok, that sounded a bit commercial-y. And I promise I was not sponsored by Joe Fresh or JCP to write this post...I just did a little pretend-shopping today and picked out some items and got really excited about sharing them. Because this is a style blog, so it's normal. Ish.

Finally, a floral that doesn't make me wanna cringe. Dare I say it, but...floral is growing on me. What??

Don't worry stripes, floral will never replace you. Layering, the same goes for you.

Because holy schniekie I've been looking for a great pleated skirt for ages.

The big question here is, if I buy these, will I actually be brave enough to wear them?

What about you guys? Anything on the JCP/Joe Fresh site piquing your interest?

In other news, I might be a tid bit absent this week. I'm working on a freelance story with a tight deadline, but that's okay because THIS ONE IS ABOUT FASHION, Y'ALL! That's right. Someone is paying me. To write. About clothes. Am I in heaven? It's quite possible. Don't worry, I'll be sure to link up when the story's live :)

  1. Okay, I am so dumb. I think I saw a Tweet that Joe Fresh was coming to JC Penney, but I recognized it as Joe Boxer and was like "well, another reason not to go to JCP." But Joe Fresh, yes, I definitely will take a peek.
