My JCPenney Experience

If you follow me on Instagram or my Facebook page, you might have seen that a little while back I got to head to Texas to the JCPenney headquarters. I haven’t really talked about why and I’m so excited to share more with you today! A little bit ago I was chosen, along with 4 other super amazing bloggers, to be a JCPenney ambassador and work with them for the next 9 months or so! I am so honored to be working with such a great company and today I wanted to share a little about my trip and about more about JCPenney. JC Penney bloggers Going into this event I was excited to work with JCPenney even though I didn’t know much about the company. I have some history with the company, as I think we all do in some way; they’ve been around since 1912! I bought 3 out of my 4 prom dresses at JCPenney even after trying many other stores. My great-aunt worked for JCPenney for 20-something years and just recently retired. She loved her experience there and couldn’t say enough good about the company. Oh and I just found out – no joke – that James Cash Penney is an actual relative of mine! How random and cool is that? This is an ancestor book that belongs to my maternal Grandmother. I still need to make the exact connection, but he’s some kind of far removed cousin or uncle. JC Penney is my ancestor I am so impressed with this company in so many aspects. They did this immersion event so that the ambassadors could learn more about them and let me tell you, it was a brilliant idea. After those couple days at the Plano, TX headquarters, I am a believer. I want to tell everyone, everywhere that they need to shop at JCPenney. They impressed me on so many levels. Everyone I met within the company, and it’s a big company, talked about the same ideals. Customer first, great quality, great prices, making sure to ‘fit’ their customers in these areas too, and trying to get people to see that these truly are the values of the company. Everything shone through as they spoke and you could tell that they meant it. I found it interesting that a big corporation could truly care about the customer. They want to provide good quality, stylish products at a great price. They strive to take care of customers the way they themselves would want to be taken care of. And it shows through! The store that was founded by Mr. Penney was originally called the Golden Rule Store. And that foundation is still alive and present today.

I love the concept of the fit. They want to ‘fit’ their customers. To have stylish home pieces that are beautiful and work practically in your home. They want to provide good quality jeans for the mom who is buying her 5th pair this month. (Gosh I can relate to that!) You know what else I love about this? That throughout the offices and stores the models JCPenney has chosen were all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors. It’s kind of a refreshing change from the photoshopped thighs of other models to make them even thinner that you continue to see out there, know what I mean? From home to fashion, they try to create pieces that will help add to what you have, not make you redo an entire wardrobe or room. I think this is remarkably practical and thoughtful for such a big company to do. So often it’s put upon us that to be ‘fashionable’ you need all the new things. JCPenney is teaching us and helping us to be fashionable by adding a few pieces here and there to round out what we have. Feels good to have a company looking out for you like that. We also got to do a little shopping! Don’t you want to see what I got? I know, it was definitely a fun part! **The first two pictures were taken by Jenny Starkey Photography. Thanks Jenny!** JC Penney Tank top My shopping mission was to find clothes that work for my traveling lifestyle. Because do you know how hard it is to pack your whole wardrobe every year? It’s tough. So I was searching for shirts & pants that would be light weight and still cute. I definitely nailed it. This tank top is a new favorite. I have to try not to wear it! It’s comfortable, cute and perfect for summer! white JC Penney shirt I bought the shirt in this picture while there as well. It’s a light weight white shirt that’s a little see through. It’s perfect because you can tie it to the side or just tuck in the front and it goes with pretty much everything. I need more clothes that go with pretty much anything. JC Penney outfit This was taken in the hotel just before leaving for the airport. I couldn’t even wait to wear my new clothes! These are some JCPenney soft pants that I bought. They’re perfect because they are super light and airy but also comfy — my kinda clothes! I paired it here with the tank shown above because it just worked for travel day but they can be worn tons of ways. I even wrote a post about it! jc penney jumpsuit When we were in a session talking about the upcoming women’s fashion, they mentioned the jumpsuit. I just fell in love with the options and new I had to grab one for myself. When I found this jumpsuit by Bisou Bisou, I knew it was the one! (It’s on sale right now!) It’s soft and slinky and perfect for summer. You can also throw a blazer over it, a colored one would be so cute, and wear it in the winter! I plan on getting a lot of use out of it. This one chosen by the People StyleWatch editors is great with really pretty side details. To sum it up, you guys, it was great. I wish you all could see or talk to me personally because sometimes it’s hard to relay a passion for something through typing. But really, I couldn’t say enough good things about this company. I hope that if you don’t already shop there, you go give them a try! But because being a part of the action is always better, we have a video of a trip to share with you! We had a mini camera crew following us around the entire time (kinda like celebrities! lol) and they put together a fun little video for each blogger. Here’s mine!

    I was just at JCPenny this past weekend looking for a new bathing suit while I was on a mini vacation. I was so suprised to find they had tops sized and built like bras. I need a lot of support for my girls and it was on clearance for on $14.99! So I will be going to my local store and looking for more.

  2. Bri D. July 2, 2014 at 7:20 am #

    I love JC Penney! If I won the gift card, I would go shopping for new jeans. 🙂

    Every single August, I go to JCPenney & JCPenney.com to shop for my daughter’s Back to School clothes, like my mom and grandma and aunt did for me!

    I always love shopping for clothes at JCP. A.N.A and Joe Fresh are the best brands there!

    When rumors were swirling that they may not survive the financial meltdowns, I once tweeted that if everyone in America would spend just one dollar at JCPenneys we could bail them out of their financial debt. The thought of the store not being around when my girls are adults was breaking my heart. JCPenney IS Americana in its purest form. It is a staple department store in American malls. It is not just a store, but a lifestyle. Their catalog kept me up many nights circling my Christmas wish list items. As a child my family could never afford to shop in department stores, so JCPenney trips were always a treat-something very special was happening if we were at Penneys, and I continue to have that feeling every time I go there. Something special always comes from my Penneys trips. In a pinch I needed a wedding dress and went nowhere else but JCPenneys, with literally MINUTES to buy a dress and knew I would find the perfect one there.. No one could believe I bought my wedding dress on a clearance rack 4 minutes before the store closed. IT was beautiful. I bought my prom dresses there in high school and it will always be my go-to for special occasions. Every Military US Marine Corp ball gown came from Penneys. Even when I lived in Africa I knew I would find something online at Penneys and had no worries….and I must say, I was the belle of the ball(s) every time. As I slowly evlve into a more grown up version of myself, I continure to reinvent my wardobe. My latest conquest is the Worthington Section in the JCPenney store. It is my dream selection for creating my new look. Mixing in some basic elements from a.n.a., classic staples form Liz Claiborne and some trendier Joe Fresh and MNGO pieces would create the perfect “adulthood” wardrobe, while still being on point in the style department, and having cash leftover to get my hair done in the salon!

    I would definitely buy myself some new everyday summer sandals. Mine are falling apart and I haven;t found the perfect ones to take their place yet.

  9. Katie July 2, 2014 at 1:56 pm #

    I love the video!!! Great clothes too! I think I would love some jeans and just pants in general. JC Penny always seems to fit taller woman which most stores don’t.

  10. Lindsey July 2, 2014 at 3:10 pm #

    I love JCPenny! How cool to be an ambassador! We have ALWAYS gone there. As a kid, mom always took us there for literally every occasion; most especially back-to-school shopping. Of course, this carried down and I shop there all the time too. It doesn’t hurt either that my JCPenny has a Sephora in it! 😉 I definitely wouldn’t say no to $100 for new shoes!! I can never turn down shoes! haha I love the jumpsuit you got! I have been so wanting to try one, I just haven’t found the bravery yet. It looks amazing on you though, I may just have to finally get one for myself!

    I LOVE J.C. Penney! In fact, I was just there earlier today and bought some a.n.a. Boyfriend jeans and two Worthington cardigans, so reading this post today was like kismet. I love their new rewards program (they give you cash back to spend in store, online, or by catalog.) Every time that I hear something about their struggles, it seriously breaks my heart. I’ve been shopping there since I was a teenager buying up their supply of Arizona jeans, and even earlier than that with my Mom. Their prices can’t be beat, especially clearance items, and especially since their store reboot, their clothes have just been on point. My favorite lines are a.n.a., Joe Fresh, and Bisou Bisou, but I love the entire women’s section. Needless to say, I would find so many great things if I won this contest! I’ve been blabbing on forever, but I love this store, and it deserves more attention and more shoppers.

  31. Brittany t July 3, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

    I love jcpenneys! I’d prob shop for a new purse or dresses! I also love how great quality their clothes are and when I find things on clearance!

    I shop at JC Penney because it is the only place I can find the jeans that will fit my 7 year. They always have the husky sizes available in their brand name, Arizona. They fit and they last a long time.

In your article I love the cute women’s styles, and the real life normal looking woman models! Seriously, Penny’s really hit on something there. I saw some nice stuff in those photos so now I will go up the escalator in the mall and take a look.
