Ok y’all…quick show of hands. How many of y’all watch Project Runway every season in complete amazement of how they can create designer gowns out of bottle caps and fishing twine? Meeee!!!!??‍♀️

Alright, next question. Raise your hand if the last time you shopped at JCPenney, you wore a child’s 6x and they had the giant catalogs? Meeee!!! ??‍♀️

Well I’m here to tell ya…JCPenney ain’t ya mama’s store no more! They have a ton of cute and trendy clothing that is priced soooo right. I’m talking $20 and under for most items. I’ve found a ton of outfits there lately, so imagine my surprise one day while I was online shopping and found out about the JCPenney/Project Runway Collaboration!!!

About the Collection

JCPenney teamed up with Project Runway in 2017, hoping to capture the attention of the H&M and Zara demographic. With this collaboration came contemporary, chic designs with the budget friendly price tag still intact. Women can shop this collection with a budget of $100, and leave with bags full of modern, sleek, from work-to-happy hour looks.

I’m sharing a few of my purchases from the collection below. I really like the idea of capsule wardrobes, where I can easily mix and match, so you’ll notice I stuck with a black and white theme. Don’t be alarmed: the collection is also packed full of color!

One of the key things that I love about this collection is that many of the pieces truly do seem designer, cutting edge, and well made. Kudos to JCPenney for bringing fashion to the masses in an affordable manner!

My favorite out of the tops I purchased is definitely the Strap Blouse with High Low Hem (2nd look). This top is perfect for the office, but snazzy enough to hit the town, thanks to the cut out detailing in the back. The knot front top is also great for work, and is a good change of pace from the classic button down white blouse. My least favorite is the V-Neck tee. I fell in love with this top when I saw it online, but was a little disappointed in the cut of the v-neckline (it has a very “rough” edge as though I cut it myself) and the fabric feels a little cheap. This shirt would actually be perfect for the gym. I do really like the trendsetter tape detailing on the back though!

All in all, I really like the collection, and I’m planning on ordering more pieces. I’ll link some of my other faves in the widget below so you can shop as well!


See you next time!
