First Look: JCPenney Launches An Exclusive video featuring Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+™

I remember sleeping with a picture from a department store back to school campaign with two teens looking cute and fashionable in leggings and stir-ups and just the thought of knowing I wouldn’t be able to have that outfit because the teen section of that store didn’t carry anything above size 14. As a young teenage girl growing up in the mid 80’s-late 90’s, the stress I would feel about shopping is heart wrenching to the adult me. I’ve never been the standard straight size, since I was a pre-teens I’ve been plus size. And to this day I still have many vivid recollections of growing up this way and not loving my body or myself.
My childhood memories of shopping consisted of countless hours of frustrating searches for something to fit and God bless my sweet mother, she would do her very best to keep my spirits high. She would always take me shopping for new clothes for back to school and holiday events, but I always felt uncomfortable, because of my size and shape.
Today, things are so different and plus size shopping has changed in so many ways. Brands created just for plus size women and teens have opened so many new doors for us to excited about shopping and knowing when we walk in the store our size will be available if it hasn’t sold out. We are having open conversations with our young girls about positive body images, self-confidence and most importantly self-love. This is why when JCPenney announced their partnership up with the very talented, fearless, plus size designer and winner of Project Runway Cycle 14, Ashley Nell Tipton so many of us were alighted and overjoyed.

Ashley Nell Tipton will be debuting her fall Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+™ capsule collection
at a one-of- a-kind live streaming shopable fashion show celebrating women of all sizes on
