Earth, Wind & Fire’s 21st of September has officially passed, and Autumn is here! One of the best seasons, in my opinion, because the chill allows for stylish layers with gorgeous accessories. Sometimes it’s hard to find the jacket or coat that speaks to you. Here are some jackets and coats that are gorgeous and may whisper to you just in time for fall and that fire ensemble you have waiting.
You know, I am having fun, playing around in new styles, shapes, silhouettes, and designers that are catering to the plus consumer and one of those happens to be JCPenney and their latest adventure and dedication to the plus size consumer with Boutique+, a new plus-size fashion line with a chic, contemporary edge, available exclusively at JCPenney, in-stores and online.! With Ashley Nell Tipton as their Ambassador and her own collection coming in the fall, I am so curious and anxious to see what Boutique+ will have for us! So when JCPenney asked me to play in their newest arrivals, I happily obliged to make a look mine!
Now, I am not sure if you saw over on FB, but I had shared the fashion show that JCPenney had last week, with Ashley Nell Tipton and there were some serious contenders for my closet! I will admit, I have not shopped here in a goooooooood minute! So this partnership with Ashley Nell Tipton and the launch of Boutique+ is verrrry smart!
So I chose three faves and I received the Longline shirt dress and black cropped leggings! I also was drooling over the floral jumper, so I went ahead and bought it, because it looks perfect! But while watching the fashion show, I saw that they tied the front of the shirtdress with the leggings, which inspired me! Normally, I would have rocked this JUST as a shirtdress, BUT feeling a bit bold and playful (maybe it is the hair) I made it work for me!
I mean… why not?
I must admit, I did appreciate the true to size fit in a 1X for me (especially across the bust) and the length of the shirtdress! What you do not see is that this puppy has waist high slits, so bottoms are a must!
I paired this with their leggings, which ARE UBER THICK and they hold life in! The finish of these did not feel like a traditional legging, which made me feel comfortable rocking this shirtdress tied up!
However, I can already see this shirtdress with a pair of white shorts OR denim cutoffs for the summer, for one of the many festivals in Atlanta! Woot!
But today, paired with my newest curls and my trusted Smash Heels, I had a lot of fun with this look! I felt sassy, segzy, and bubbly!
BUT, one of the really cool things I appreciate about this collection is that it ranges from a 0X to eventually a 5X online! Pieces are slowly starting to trickle in, and you can scoop up these pieces NOW!
