When I was a tween in Long Island, there was nothing like a back to school shopping trip to Roosevelt Field Mall. Fashions and bargains abounded and although a run through of JC Penney was always part of the ritual of finding treasures for the school year, I always left the store empty handed.
What a difference several decades has made as this mid level department store chain has learned a lot from it’s nearly 100 years of operation. Now the store features great options courtesy of the lower priced point lines of Nicole Miller, Bisou-Bisou, Charlotte Ronson and Allen Schwartz and by shopping online and entering the code SWEETS4U will save you $10 off of a $10 purchase until 10/28/09. Some recommendations for your luscious pear shaped body including this great and affordable look from C. Ronson:
My favorite piece of the ensemble is the Ombre sweater. Because the dye goes from light on top to black on bottom the color fade provides the necessary palate for a best Pear Shapely optical illusion. Additionally the belt tie is sure to show off your little middle.
I think this sweater would provide you a perfect opportunity to show off some Hurricane by Jane jewelry, especially the pieces that integrate gold filled and sterling silver metals. My styling recommendations include the Boxer Earrings ($51), Circle Choker in the Gold/Silver combo ($47) and the Lock-Her Bracelet ($58(.
Let me know if any of the jewelry interest you and I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.
The Armani Exchange website is offering an automatic 20% discount on purchases over $100 plus free shipping (expires 10/26/09). Combine it all with the additional code of “EXTRA10” and you can save another 10%, thus making pieces from this line affordable. My favorite item for a pear shaped body are the Marled Wrap Cardigan ($88):
The topper is 100% cotton and comes in an array of neutral colors. With a belted waist, a wide shawl color and a length that won’t cut your thighs visually in two, it will balance out your fabulous figure.
A pop of color from a classic ribbed t shirt ($22) will bring some fun into the mix:
Plus buying both pieces together will bring your total over $100, ensure you get all the qualifying discounts. With your spare cash, visit Hurricane by Jane and buy an affordable and adorable pair of handmade earrings to mix with the ensemble, like the Swingtown Earrings ($32):
The complete look will be just devine!
