I was in middle school during the whole Juicy Couture heyday. I remember I begged and pleaded and stomped my feet to try and get my mother to buy me a Juicy tracksuit, but she put her foot down. (Looking back, I'm thankful - a velour tracksuit? Rhinestones? Words across the butt? Really?) At one point, I saved up enough to by myself an on-sale, last season jacket in a deep cranberry color, and I wore it to death. But then I outgrew it, and by then, the Juicy phase was over and I moved on with my life.
And then today, while shopping for a Mother's day present, I paused by a window so cute and colorful I just had to go inside. And what store, you might ask, had captured my attention so? None other than the JC itself. I haven't set foot in the store in the five-odd years it's been at the mall until today, but boy am I glad that I did. Neon and metallic shorts, lace dresses, Trina Turk-esque shift dresses, and neon and rhinestone jewelry - what more could a girl want? They still sell the tracksuit, so steer clear of those, but they've got some seriously cute stuff as well. And don't worry - all the dresses still come with that cute little j-shaped zipper you loved back in middle school!
