This post is in collaboration with JCPenney. All opinions and experiences my own!
You all know how much I love clothes, right? If you don't, I'm not sure you're in the right place on the web 😂
Anyway, I want to talk about Ashley Nell Tipton. If you're a fashion reality show lover, you likely know who this winner is! If not, let me just say that she is the sweetest person and a highly skilled designer. A couple of months ago at theCURVYcon in NYC (a trip I have yet to recap because #busy), she was on hand to unveil the #HereIAm video in collaboration with JCPenney. When they played the video, I won't lie – I got misty-eyed. Haven't seen it? Check it out below:
At the event, JCPenney had a Boutique+™ area where we could individualize t-shirts and mingle with team members as well as other bloggers and attendees. Ashley made an appearance and she was swarmed with people because she and JCPenney are doing something we've always wanted: giving us fun and colorful plus size clothes that aren't at an unattainable price tag.
I didn't get a selfie with Ashley, but was pumped to get a photo with plus model Nicole Zepeda, who is probably the sweetest person ever and working the Boutique+™ area.
In the lead up to the launch of Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+, there is a 3 episode docuseries available for viewing. I've embedded them below for easy viewing!
The first exclusive Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+™ capsule collection launches online and in-stores starting September 6, which is also when you can live stream the runway show at noon EST! I know I'll be watching.
As soon as I can get my hands on some of the pieces I'll share my favorite looks. Go get 'em, Ashley!
