(NEW YORK) Why not shop for a cause? For the entire month of February, jcpenney is joining forces with Dress For Success as part of their JCP Cares giving program. The non-profit is known for decking out ladies in stylish duds that are appropriate for the work force. The objective: ensuring women look and feel their best whether they're nabbing a gig, transitioning into a job, or already gainfully employed. How can you contribute? After you've perused racks of jcpenney-stocked duds by the likes of Betsey Johnson, Bisou Bisou and Nicole Miller, or shopped it out online, you can give back by rounding-up your total to the nearest dollar. Makes cents to us!
Also on the jcpenney docket: that hotly anticipated collab with designer Duro Olowu, announced in October; images of the punchily patterned looks rolled out last month, to across-the-web delight of fashion bloggers everywhere. Currently the ambitiously revamped department store is stocked with another buzzy designer on board for a capsule collection: L'Amour by Nanette Lepore, which hits stores and e-comm tomorrow.
