Holiday season is in full swing and thanks to the wonderful team at J.Jill, I’m looking forward to celebrating with an easy and much more relaxed style this year! I recently experienced a unique opportunity to visit J.Jill’s new 3,757-square-foot store at The Shops at Mission Viejo, CA, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I fell in love with nearly every outfit I tried on! To be completely honest, I was unfamiliar with the J.Jill brand prior to my visit, but upon research and getting to know the thoughtfulness of J.Jill’s uncomplicated and ready-for-anything clothing and accessories…I quickly became an immediate fan.
Lets face it, we working women live much more complicated lives than ever before, and when it comes to fashion, not every outfit is as easy to wear when running around in the streets of NYC, or battling bumper-to-bumper traffic in LA. My life in particular is a coast-to-coast traveling nightmare with a few international flights to Asia and Europe thrown in for good measure! So, as much as I adore my couture, runway-ready, stiletto heeled OOTDs, throwing myself into a “luxe, lofty, cozy fabric” and finding that “perfect balance between comfort and fashion” such as J.Jill, is literally a gold mine, especially during this crazy holiday season! That’s why J.Jill’s WEAREVER COLLECTION, intended to simplify my wardrobe and multiply my options (with some sleek wrinkle-free choices and beautiful neutral colors) are a no-brainer FASHION TOUCHDOWN! Score one for J.Jill and another for my cute heather gray winter wear set and black wearever ottoman knit tunic! P.s. these flip-top mittens are also totally iPhone-friendly!
As you know, my motto at KHOLLAGE is to “uncover the art of being fashionable” by kharefully khurating unique outfits, style, and designer finds for a modern woman’s khomplex life. A khind of one-stop-digital-diary-gallery of high-end and affordable pieces for you to lust after while juggling a million other priorities such as school, career, health, and family. As a busy Management Consultant by day and Fashion Blogger by night, let’s underscore that phrase, “for a modern woman’s khomplex life.” Interestingly enough, J.Jill is a unique multi-channel retailer of misses’, petite, tall and women’s original design clothing with a passionately devoted and rapidly growing customer base. They have a single word brand description for their original in-house designs, shopping experience, and fashion…“UNCOMPLICATED”.
Headquartered in Quincy, Massachusetts, what began in year 1959 as one store in the Berkshires is now a national retailer of apparel, accessories and footwear. J.Jill “uncomplicates a women’s life by giving her a stylish, easy, ready-for-anything wardrobe that lets her dress confidently and focus on enjoying her life.” They offer shopper-friendly, guiding services wherever you shop: in one of their 225+ stores, state-of-the-art contact and distribution center in Tilton, New Hampshire, via websites or catalogs.
Another aspect of J.Jill, which I found absolutely irresistible, much like my own fashion and giving obsession – is the J.Jill Compassion Fund, which supports community-based organizations that help disadvantaged and homeless women become self-sufficient. They are dedicated to supporting women in need and the organizations that help them change their lives. Now, in it’s twelfth year, this donor-advised fund of the Boston Foundation, J.Jill Compassion Fund, has presented more than $6 million to over 60 organizations across the nation.
On “Giving Tuesday”, J.Jill committed $100,000 to their Compassion Fund partners – and you can help match that donation by participating in their #JJILL12DAYS giving campaign till December 13, 2014. For every like, comment and share on J.Jill’s posts on Instagram (@JJILLSTYLE), they will donate $5.00 to The Compassion Fund up to an additional $1000,000. Plus, throughout their campaign, there will be six chances for you to win a $150 J.Jill gift card. Learn more or get in on today’s final day to participate!
