Anyone who follows plus fashion has been super excited to see Ashley Nell Tiptons JCPENNEY clothing line launch! We've loved her since Project Runway and this is just the beginning of her amazing clothing designs.  I read up on her new clothing line and she wanted to represent Plus size women as well as break some taboo rules. Some rules that the fashion industry and society in general try to define what Plus women absolutely should not wear. The following:  "horizontal stripes, white, bodycon, bright colors, and prints" (refinery29) Ashley quotes on her website

" My collection is an artful combination of glamour and street fashion. I love color and I’m very inspired by curvy women and helping them feel good in their clothes. I want to offer plus size women the opportunity to wear fun colors and to avoid the pit-falls of only wearing black because many curvy girls think it is the only color that is slimming,” said Tipton.
I love this advice! I have always been drawn to color, I think that stems from being an Artist and painter.  I'm going to take a look at a few select items from her collab with JCPENNEY and take a look at some amazing items for sale on her Website.

“JCPenney has given me the opportunity to realize my dream of designing fashion for curvy women everywhere who want clothes that make them feel young and sexy. Drawing inspiration from 1950s bombshells, I chose high waist pencil skirts and paired them with crop top blouses because I wanted to show how every body can rock this combination. Ultimately, the collection is about turning up the volume on your style as well as your confidence. I want women to wear these pieces and feel great about how they look.”-Ashley Nell Tipton

I went into our local JCPENNEY and was excited to see allot of stuff available to try on in various sizes. BOUTIQUE+ is literally my favorite line at JCP currently.

I tried on the following outfits all from the BOUTIQUE+ line with a few pieces of the Ashley collection.

Beautiful Rose and Black Skirt Retails for $48

dont mind the scratchy mirror

This skirt is so comfy, stylish and looks good on my figure. I tried on a 1x as that was all they had left on the rack. I love the feeling of the skirt on my body, and the overall movement and flow. I was worried it would feel heavy but it absolutely does not...what is this witch craft? j/k The Gold Zipper in the back gives it a "Couture" look without being to crazy expensive. (on sale for $27.99 until Oct 20)

Cool Black Moto Jacket Retails for $84

(on sale for $49.99 until oct 20)

This jacket is so freaking epic and badass! I tried a 2x on and felt like it was perfect. It gave my arms room to move and I was able to zip it up with room to breathe.  I Love LOVE LOOOOVE the flowy Chifon hanging down the jacket. In retrospect I should have tried on a different color top and pants with the jacket. But black gives me life. Wishes I was a Goth girl. J/k I didn't really see anything else I wanted to try on...our store had Some items from the Ashley Nell Tipton Collection, not all of them. :(

Other BOUTIQUE+ Items

FLORAL DRESS retails for $68

This dress is a 2x for extra wiggle room for my figure, I think I could have gone down to a 1x for a more form fitting look. Snapchat Crown worthy! Love the look and feel. My favorite detail is the
 see-through mesh detailing in the bottom of the skirt.


One thing I WISH they had in our store is her LIPSTICK print Top and Skirt! The top looks flowy, classic and breathable. You can check them out on the website On Sale now!



NOTE: All Ashley Nell Tipton clothing designs come in sizes 0x-5x
