Hey Skorchies-Terr Cacilia here.
As soon as I heard about the Ashley Nell Tipton holiday collection at her capsule collection show in September my fashion radar was up!
The end of October brought the release of this holiday collection for JcPennys Boutique+ (You can shop the collection here!)
From the start I was blown away by the collection as a whole but there was one piece that stood out among the rest- a pink faux fur coat.
I initially saw this coat on Ashley herself in the promo images released for for the collection- and I knew I needed to have it in my closet.
The site referrers to it as a “Long Sleeve Poncho” however I would classify it as the most fabulous coat known to mankind.
With a price of only $125 how could you possibly say no?
With sizes ranging from 0x-5x this coat is perfect for many plus size frames- for me personally I picked up a size 4x because I love when a warm coat still allows me room to move.
I styled this shoot channeling exactly how it made me feel- like a total bad bitch. (que some Rhianana playing in the back round.)
A few things to consider when purchasing this coat:
- This coat appears to be about 3 different shades or pink in this post alone-and the JcPenneys website image does not do it justice at all. I think lighting has a lot to do with it- the coat I have in my possession is a cool pale pink with beautiful blending of a more pigmented warm tone pink through out.
- This coat is pocketless and I wish it had some hidden pockets in the lining-pockets are a MUST.
How I styled This Look:
-Black Cage top from Society+
-Skirt/ Shoes from H&M
-Matte lip color Marshmellow from ColourPop !
While my styling may seem unconventional to some- this coat symbolizes so much more than just warmth during the colder months.
This coat is proof that attainable HIGH FASHION exists for plus size bodies- we are worthy, and willing to wear FUN and FASHIONABLE clothing.
Thank you Ashley for helping make my closet a little more fabulous.
