Most of my friends and fam know that I am not a fashionista by any means and that my hubby is my stylist. I do most of my shopping online at Old Navy because I usually have the monsters in tow and trying on clothes with two kids under 10 doesn't make for a great fashion show, it's more like a mommy meltdown waiting to happen. If I have the chance to sneak a few minutes for myself before my commute home from the Upper west side to Queens I hit the usual stores like H&M or Forever21. With wedding season and warmer weather approaching I've been flipping through my stacks of magazines for inspiration, which was when I spotted designer Duro Olowu and his new Jcpenney line that hit stores this month. I just had to share it with all of you!
This Nigerian born, London based designer has created an affordable line that screams everything I love: Bold prints + lots of Vibrant colors! I'm sure if his designs are good enough for first lady Michelle Obama to rock during interviews with Oprah and during press conferences then the rest of us will standout in a crowd & look just as chic at our upcoming events. Here's a few of my favorite looks from the new line and checkout JCP's site for more fabulous pieces!
What do you think of JcPenney's new trendier lines for apparel, accessories and housewares? Do you have any fave's from the statement making pieces of the Duro Olowu line for JCP? Mine is the vintage- metallic one featured just below.
