Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+ with JCPenney

How exciting!!! Ashley Nell Tipton has created a capsule collection for Boutique+ at JCPenney. The collection launches online and in-stores September 6. Boutique+ is a lifestyle collection created for the curvy fashionista. The sizes range from 0x-4x, 16W-30W and up to 5x is available online.

For fall, her collection features looks inspired by 50's fashion. The collection includes slash knee jeggings; quilted pencil and box pleat skirts; cropped cape-sleeve blouses (my favorite btw); boyfriend tees; bomber jackets with sequin details and the classic moto-jacket with an edgy chiffon detail.

I love her bold statement pieces but most of all that she's giving curvy women like myself stylish clothes we deserve and at a great price too! The collection screams #HereIAm.

Ashley gave us an inside look into the inspiration for her capsule collection in her docuseries you can watch here http://bit.ly/JCPDocu2 Break out the popcorn and enjoy the show.

polka dots, dress, retro

Gimme Polka Dots

You either love them or hate them. When it comes to me- I love polka dots big or small. Polka dots are a classic print that will never go out of style. This print was very popular in the 1920's to 1960's from dresses, tops, and swimsuits. Polka dots now aren't all the rage but their definitely a wardrobe must have.

Style Tip: If a polka dress is to much polka dot for you- try wearing a blouse with this print. Pair the blouse with a pencil skirt for a great outfit for the office. If you want a more casual approach wear a polka dot skirt with a denim top- like I wore here

Polka dots are retro and retro is in. I took this retro print and wore it in a modern way in this bodycon dress from Lovesick. This dress itself has a va-va-voom quality so minimal accessories were key. I wore a white belt to emphasize my waist and pointy toe heels to elongate my legs. I completed the look with round sunnies to keep up with the retro element the print has.

Good Vibes

Lately, I've been wearing a lot of dresses. Well, can you blame me it's been like 90 degrees almost every day in LA. Oh, how I can't wait for fall. I had to give my dresses a rest and put on something more casual like a tee and jeans. 

Style tip: Spice up a tee and jean combo with some pumps and an edgy jacket. Throw the jacket over your shoulders for that stylish blogger inside you.

I haven't worn a graphic tee in such a long time. Why not start wearing one with a good message like, this "Good Vibes" tank from Authentic Glam. I love that it's cropped. The sides of the tank are low so I suggest a bralette. Have fun with it- try a strappy bralette like the one I'm wearing or a lacy one. This is not a plus size tank- I'm wearing a large and it fits great!

A pair of jeans is the perfect match to a graphic tee. They're also the perfect match for my shape. I'm seriously obsessed with these jeans. They're stretchy and comfortable. They're also from Authentic Glam and go up to size 15.  These high waisted denims are perfect for ladies with curves.

black dress, forever 21 plus

Cross My Heart

We all love a black dress- it's versatile and you can pretty much wear it anywhere. The little black dress is simple yet timeless. I love that you can dress it up or down. Sometimes you don't need accessories or jewelry to dress up a look- a small detail can just do that.

A little detail goes a long way. It can take a black dress from simple to eye catching like this dress from Forever 21 plus. This dress has a classic flared silhouette but the criss cross detail on the back and shoulders add that eye catching detail.

Little Floral Dress

Is it just me or is this outfit totally 90's. I mean the floral dress and denim jacket is such a blast from the past. When I put this look together I didn't mean to take you back to the 90's- which are totally in trend right now. I just wanted to put on this feminine dress from Forever 21+ and a denim jacket that goes with everything. I was running errands so I wanted to stay comfortable. A tote bag and stacked heel sandals finished the look.
