I can remember the day Ashley Nell Tipton won Project Runway season 14. It was like she won for the entire plus size community. I smiled so wide with such pride knowing a woman who looked just like me won making clothing …for women like me. Naturally I was ecstatic when I found out Ashley would be collaborating with JCPENNEY and their Boutique+ Line. Their collaboration meant a plus size line that would be stylish affordable and provide a great fit.
The first exclusive Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+™ capsule collection launched online and in-stores on September 6. From box pleat skirts; cropped cape-sleeve blouses and a sequin bomber jackets I was in 1950’s heaven. Elements like lipstick prints and bold horizontal stripes gave the collection a ready to wear-modern twist. Sizes ranging from 0x-4x in store and up to 5X online and 16W-30W are available right now in stores and online.
I was invited to attend the Fashion Show in New York City on Tuesday. So many beautiful plus size women graced the pop up runway in the middle of 34th street! Now that’s how you make a statement. Watching Ashley give such a heartfelt introduction I truly felt her desire to meet the needs of the everyday plus size woman.
Take a look at some of the images from the show and don’t forget to head on over to the site today to grab some of your favorite pieces!
I choose to combine the bomber jacket and the quilted skirt with kicks to create an effortlessly chic and sporty look. I am pretty much obsessed with the rose gold details on both pieces. The pins on the bomber gave my ensemble such a playful appeal. JCPenney is currently having a super sale so don’t miss out. `
I waited after the show to snag a picture with the designer wearing a full Ashley Neil Tipton Boutique+ outfit. We both gave our best #HEREIAM smiles.
