Jennifer Lopez reveals her secret to savvy shopping on Jimmy Kimmel Live: Bargain Hunting in Style

During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jennifer Lopez playfully admitted her fondness for shopping at discount clothing stores, even though she was wearing a pricey $12,000 Michael Kors jumpsuit at that moment. The talk show host jokingly suggested that she may be spreading herself too thin with her various projects, including her roles in American Idol, the police drama Shades of Blue, and her upcoming Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood.

Jennifer Lopez captured everyone’s attention with her radiant presence while she made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past Monday.

“You do it because there are fans who want to see you, but let’s be real, the money helps,” Kimmel said with a straight face. Lopez, rocking a stunning silver jumpsuit, chuckled and quipped, “I mean, someone has to pay for these jumpsuits, right?”

As the late-night host joked that her outfits weren’t from discount stores like Marshalls, J Lo, in a slightly serious tone, defended herself by saying, “Although I do shop at Marshalls. Why not, right?”

When Jimmy teased that fans must faint when they see her at Marshalls, she claimed she blends in too well to be noticed, stating, “I don’t think you would even recognize me there.”

However, she insisted, “I do enjoy shopping, especially at bargain places. I like to mix things up a bit.” When Jimmy jokingly asked if she buys Christmas gifts from such places to save money on others, she handed him a gift – a peach-colored clothing item with ‘JK’ altered to resemble Jimmy Kimmel.
“It was a last-minute gift,” she explained. “But it was monogrammed. I was really rushing, but my grandmother always taught me to never arrive empty-handed.”
In return, Jimmy presented her with a gift – a mug that read: “World’s Greatest Dad.”
