Bargain Shopping: JCPenney and Forever21

I've been bargain hunting lately, but I've also been returning things that haven't worked out, a la my friend Caroline.  Here are a few keepers I discovered!

You guys, I rock a one-piece.  I love my two-piece swimsuits (even as a curvy girl) but I have this thing for vintage swim silhouettes.  I scored this Liz Claiborne swimsuit for $38 during a sale at JCPenney and I can't begin to tell you how flattering it is.  I feel sexy and va-va-voom!  Even full price it's a steal over my Jantzen Vamp Maillots.

JCPenney, $64 ($38-46 on sale!)

I also found a clearance Duro Olowu skirt for $8 at JCPenney that was perfect for traveling.  I don't think the photo does it justice, because it was much more flared in real life.  It needs to be worn higher so it accentuates the narrowest part of your waist, but I love the length and material.  The elastic waistband (dare I say it!) makes it forgiving and comfy too.

JCPenney, $35

I was in-store at a Forever 21 during a business trip (I know, not online, shocking!) and found some adorable pieces that I couldn't resist.  They all had peplum/peter pan collar/accents that are very on-trend, but also something that I just identified as ME.  Am I getting closer to a personal style?  Maybe!  (BTW, actually finding these pieces online for this post awas nearly impossible!)  The long-sleeve blouse is hands-down my new favorite shirt.  I love it with skinny jeans!
Forever 21 Contrast Peter Pan Collar Shirt, $22.80

Forever 21 Star Print Peplum Top, $19.80

Forever 21 Contrast Peplum w/Neckerchief, $17.80 

Have any good shopping hauls lately?
