If you haven't heard by now, Ashley Nell Tipton, the winner of season 14 Project Runway, has paired up with JC Penney. She is their first brand ambassador and has collaborated with JCPenney's Boutique+ line to create some fun and funky pieces that totally represent her and her style. According to the press release the collection "challenges the rules of full-figured fashion by offering sophisticated silhouettes and trendy touches that appeal to millennial shoppers. JCPenney is the first and only national retailer to feature Tipton`s designs.” Boutique + line is designed specifically for us plus size gals with sizes offered in 0X-5X and up to 30W! With pieces ranging from $20-$125, you can defintiely find something that fits your budget. Today marks the official launch of her collection which can be found in stores and online as well as a runway show at the Manhattan Mall location in NYC. I'm loving her 50's inspired pieces, whimsical tops, fun skirts and one of the trendiest pieces of the fall, her sequins bomber. There's alittle something for everyone in this collection. She's definitely brought her passion and impeccable style to this collection and I couldn't be more happy with it.
The minute the collection hit the JCP's website, I literally went ham, filling up my cart with my favorite items. It was so hard to narrow down my choices because I wanted everything. I was able to get it down to pieces that I knew I would get the most wear out of. As well as things that will be versatile and timeless. There was no doubt that the Sequin Bomber and Leather Pleated Skirt were going to be keepers. As I mentioned, bombers are super trendy for this Fall season and Ashley hit it out the park with this one. This nostalgic varsity jacket just screams "Pink Ladies" from Grease, but super chic. The sequins sleeves take this jacket to the next level of fashion fabulous and with the cute accent pins on the jacket give it a modern twist.
Leather pleated skirts are a staple in my wardrobe, so this beautiful blush pink was a must have. It's classy, sophisticated and totally my style and pair with her "Love you" graphic tee tone down the look making it fun and functional.
If you're in the NYC area today, head down to the JCP in Manhattan Mall area for the runway show and shop the Ashley Nell Tipton collection. Or you can head over to their website to shop with the Boutique + collection currently 40% off!
