Remember I told you a few weeks ago that Ashley Nell Tipton, the Season 14 Project Runway winner, has partnered with JCPenney to create a collection for their Boutique+ line. Well, it’s finally here and I am LOVING it! If you were as excited as me, you probably caught the live stream of Ashley’s fashion show during New York Fashion week and got to see firsthand how her collection is full of sassy, classy and unique styles. From pleated skirts, matching crop tops, sexy pencil skirts and super edgy leather jackets. She is providing us plus size women with never before seen options, like this matching set covered in lipstick.
I instantly fell in love with this set. I think because it dared me to try something different and step a little out of my comfort zone. And isn’t that what fashion is all about?! Testing the waters, stepping outside the box and trying new styles. Well I’m here for it! This set was made PERFECTLY! To start the crop top was cut just right, you can tell that Ashley thought about how high women would wear the matching skirt and cut the crop top just enough to show a little skin and still keep it classy. The material was super light and flowy and I love the cape sleeves. The skirt hit mid-calf, zipper closure and the material was a thick scuba like material. I liked this material because it kept my skirt in place instead of blowing in the wind. Because this set was so bold I decided to keep my accessories very simple. A chunky nude heel, a small gold clutch and a simply gem necklace that I hit underneath the color of the shirt for a dash of chic-ness.
Now not only is Ashley’s collection full of great pieces that you can mix and match to make your own but it is also very affordable! And as you know JCPenney always comes through with online and in store coupons! Can you believe this matching set was only $51? Talk about shopping on a budget.
