Kenmore Elite Top-Load Washer and DryerWhen was the last time you looked at your washer and dryer and thought, “Wow…gorgeous!”? Thought so. One glance at the Kenmore® Elite washer and dryer changes that in an instant. These sleek appliances are absolute stunners, thanks to their polished ginger hue and streamlined silhouettes.

As anyone with a penchant for glamour and elegance can attest, though, what’s inside counts, too - and that’s where these standout appliances really shine. The high-efficiency top-load washer signifies the return of quiet, effortless cleaning, and takes the guesswork out of washing even your trickiest garments. The built-in Smart Motion Technology system creates a customized cycle for everything from your most glamorous dresses and crisp office essentials to soiled kids’ clothing and your plushest comforters.

Even better, the stainless steel drum is a spacious 5.2 cubic feet, which means more room for you to fill it to capacity. That means less laundry in the long run - and that means more time to tend to your packed schedule. Not to be outdone by…well, itself, this powerhouse is also a serious energy saver thanks to its Save Energy+ feature, which reduces water and energy consumption on select cycles.

Measuring an extra-roomy 7.3 cubic feet, the matching dryer offers the kinds of options women truly appreciate. It treats garments gently, using automatic Sensor Dry Technology to determine how wet each item is. You can also dry noisy sneakers in peace and keep your sweaters and delicates in flawless condition by using the included drying rack.

It even saves you unnecessary trips to the dry cleaner! Just use the innovative Steam Refresh feature to rejuvenate your best suit the night before a big meeting, or revive a fabulous cocktail dress for an impromptu dinner party. Where has this been all our lives?

And forget about complicated buttons and dials that look like something from a spaceship. Both machines feature user-friendly panels that are a dream to navigate. Laundry suddenly seems less like a chore and - dare we say it? - a whole lot more enjoyable.

L.12.12 is the ultra-hip code name for the original Lacoste polo shirt, invented in 1927 by René Lacoste as a comfortable, breathable new tennis uniform. 83 years later, this timeless classic is a favorite on and off the tennis court, coming in colors to suit every mood for men, women and kids.

As part of American Living for JCPenney’s “Made For” campaign, we were asked to create an outfit “Made For” a specific moment of our day. Like most women, we wear many hats, so wearing clothes that “do it all” is essential. Our clothes need to be stylish, comfortable and versatile enough to take us from morning to night and everywhere in between as we get our kids ready for school, head out for a business meeting, run errands and sometimes attend an evening work event or social gathering.

As you’ll see in the video, we consider a dress to be our wardrobe’s MVP (most versatile piece) - it’s the quickest way to get dressed in the morning, looks instantly polished, and can be dressed up or down with accessories and layering pieces. Check out the video above to see how our American Living dresses help us “do it all” throughout the day.

Now, here’s the fun part… we want you to share with us your “Made For” moment and select a piece from the American Living collection that you would wear for your moment in the comments section below. We’ll select our favorite comment to WIN a $250 gift card from JCPenney! You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize of a $1500 JCPenney gift card! The deadline for entries is 11:59 EST on July 31, 2010. (check out the official rules)

The video series is sponsored by JCPenney and produced by Style Coalition. Check out our YouTube channel to see all the Made For moments in the video series.
We were recently asked to test wear a superfine wool t-shirt from Ramblers Way. Despite the promise of “next-to-skin softness”, we were somewhat skeptical that a garment made of wool would resemble anything akin to a t-shirt. Created by the founders of Tom’s of Maine, we were lured by their dedication to responsible and sustainable wool production methods, made in America, and intrigued to see just how soft and fine wool can be.

Not brave enough to test out the wool briefs they offer, we opted for the Women’s Next-to-Skin Scoop Neck Short Sleeve Top (Long) for our test wear. Much to our surprise, the wool t-shirt is truly as sleek, sexy and soft as they promised. In fact, if you didn’t know it was wool, you would suspect the t-shirt was made from silk or cotton (making those wool briefs seem not so crazy anymore.) 

The t-shirt is thin enough to wear as a base layer under clothing and the breathable wool naturally repels odors and wicks away moisture, so it’s perfect for wearing any time of year. And most importantly, it is machine washable.

They offer many 4-season base layer options (including the aforementioned underwear) for men and women at If you’re still a skeptic, they’ll even send you a free fabric sample so you can feel for yourself just how soft wool can be.
