It’s below 40 degrees outside, and you have a social gathering attend to. Instinctively, you grab your warmest of sweaters and puffy scarves to try and muster up the perfect look. As you take a look in the mirror, you realize that you look like a snowman because you are drowning in many layers while all of your friends sent pictures of their sexy/trendy outfits that are also winter ready!

YUP- This is the story of my life!

Luckily, we have 10 style bloggers who serve as style inpso experts! Not only are they beautiful, but they don’t let the freezing temps effect the sexy/trendy sizzle they bring to the winter!

7 Jackets that Did Not Come to Play this Season!

pLUS sIZE jACKETS

The jacket gawds finally heard our cry! Plus size women everywhere are gonna be snatched when it comes to the jacket department. I know it’s been a while since I’ve since I’ve done a round-up of any sort but when you see these jackets, you’ll understand why I came our of hiding. Finding jackets online was always my problem-child. When your arms are about 19 inches in circumference, attractive options start to dwindle. So, I gathered up ten jackets that possess the ultimate “it factor.” In December, I am going to feature TWO of these jackets on the blog so you can have a point of reference. Maybe three if they are on sale ;).

Here are the top 7 who made the cut!

DOUBLE-BREASTED LONG COAT from Lane Bryant

It’s not every day you get to live out your Oliva Pope dreams but this jacket it makes it seem like such a reality!

Studio Neck Tie Fit and Flare Coat from Eloquii

Who said you couldn’t wear bright colors in the winter? This jacket also goes up to size 28! A big win for me because I don’t like feeling stuffed in my jacket!

SHINY QUILTED PUFFER WINTER COAT from Ashley Stewart

If you are looking for ultimate warmth, this jacket should suffice!

Joanna Hope Boucle Cape by JD Williams

When I saw this on Meaghan of Little Lime Dress’s Instagram, I knew I had to get ASAP!

Excelled® Belted Boucle Wrap Jacket – Plus from JC Penney

I love this jacket because it would go perfectly with my work outfits. This will be an everyday morning to night type of jacket.

FAUX FUR TRIM PUFFER COAT from Avenue

I had to bring it back to the puffer coat because living in New England, sometimes these wool jackets aren’t enough. Plus, the fur trimming keeps my ears warm lol!

Outlander Tartan Coat from Torrid

Tartan jackets are always winning in my book. Now that I am in grad school, I am getting nostalgic about my Catholic high school years! I love the pattern and colors!

So what do you think? Did you find a jacket the peaks your interest? I tried to find jackets that went up to size 32! So hopefully if you take a look at the stores, you will find the perfect one!

Until next time,

Ashley Nell Tipton for JCPenney’s Boutique+

Happy Friday Family!

New York Fashion Week is in full swing and all the fashion industry’s best and brightest are putting their best foot forward. One designer that is making all headlines this year is Ashley Nell Tipton. If you watched Project Runway Season 14, Ashley Nell Tipton slayed every design challenge and that ultimately led her to being the winner of season 14. As a plus size woman, I cheered Ashley on throughout the entire season. Not because she was a plus size woman, but because she understood how to make clothing that looked amazing on plus size women and straight size women. She really put us on the map!

Last Tuesday, I had the honor of attending Ashley’s début capsule collection with JCPenney’s Boutique+ line! JCPenney’s Boutique+ is a plus-size lifestyle collection created for the fashion conscious millennial shopper. The brand was conceived by a dedicated team of design, trend and product experts whose focus is to ensure the looks of Boutique+™ complement a curvier shape. Boutique+’s line ranges from sizes 0x-4x and 16W-30W and are available in stores and online. Ashley’s capsule collection was a perfect addition to JCPenney’s selection of clothing dedicated to us! With 50’s inspired looks, mesh inserts, and lots of hip hugging action, you can tell this collection was not only made for us but it’s on trend with straight size options. Talk about a WINNING!

The best part of the fashion show was seeing so many of my favorite body positive advocates on the runway! Familiar faces such as Tess Munster, Essie Golden, Frankie Tavares, and Sabrina Servance, showed us the versatility in Ashley’s capsule collection with JCPenney.

Here are a few of my favorite looks from the runway:

But my favorite look of all was the Wildflower Short Sleeve Scuba Dress. Tinder Badhesha rocked this dress!

Guess who rocked it well too? YOURS TRULY!

I am more of apple/pear shape, therefore I shy away from dresses that bring attention to my midsection. But this is the first body con that I’ve felt comfortable wearing–as you can tell I don’t have many bodycons on my blog. I am wearing a size 3x and I’m a size 22 in dresses– this collection is definitely true to size.

What do you think? Did I slay?!?! For more hip hugging action, you can size down. This dress is only $ 39.99 in-store and online now! If you get something from Ashley’s capsule collection with JCPenney and decide to post them online, use hashtag #HereIAm! This collection truly emphasizes why our size shouldn’t define us. Instead it highlights why we are just as beautiful…no matter what we wear. Thanks Ashley!To get your hands on these amazing looks, head to JCPenney today!

 

Until next time,

Char!
