ADDICT: J.C. Penney Advertising Like One of the Cool Kids
Feb 12, 2009 - by Amanda Gabriele
I've always associated J.C. Penney with oxford shirts and penny loafers. Why, you ask? Because Catholic grade school required that we wear them. I've never considered the department store as fashionable, but I never complained because a trip to that particular mall meant a trip to Deb. And if you don't remember the glory days of Deb, it was where I bought everything to resemble the style of Cher Horowitz. Regardless, this advertisement for J.C. Penney featuring the Charlotte Ronson line isn't half bad (even though the clothes really aren't that cute). Now if only Deb would come out with a Clueless line, I'd be set for life.
