Hmmmm...cute items but I need pieces that will be able to hold up after a spin in the washer machine.

Zara. Mango. JCrew. Urban Outfitters.

Hmmmm...even better but I need to be able to pay my rent and electricity.

So where is my happy medium? It took a while for me to find a store that offers quality clothes at reasonable prices, but I eventually came around to falling back in love with an ol' faithful department store buddy...JCPenny.

Yes ma'am. Don't knock it till you try it. I was able to score three pair of pants, two blouses and a blazer for just under $140. All dressy casual pieces.

For now Liz Clairborne, Worthington, A.N.A. and Bisou Bisou will have to do.

Where do you like to shop for quality yet affordable pieces?
