After giving you a review on the Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+ line at JCPenney in my inside the fitting room post and my at home try on of my order post, today I am styling the pieces I got in a special Lookbook along with a video.  I wanted to join in on the #HereIAm campaign and share something to women that was inspiring beyond just the fashion.  Thank you for being a part of the Designing From My Closet community as I so appreciate my readers.  You are all so beautiful.

The collection designed by Ashley Nell Tipton for the Boutique+ line at JCPenney has been much anticipated by myself and many others.  The line carries sizes 0X-4X and 16W-30W in stores and online and up to 5X available online.

Today I am bringing you another Shop With Me video to show you some of the pieces.  I have also been watching the docuseries of the behind the scenes perspective of how Ashely went through her design process (episode 2 and episode 3) and to continue the #HereIAm campaign.  And yes, I even counted down as I was at my computer working when her live runway show took place.

Fall 2016 Fashions at Working Wardrobes Outlet in Huntington Beach | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

Thrifting and shopping second hand is something I have done for years to supplement my wardrobe.  Not only do I find it enjoyable, I find that this is the perfect way to keep things fresh as well as being able to wear pieces that not everyone else has.  Getting items second hand does not mean you have to sacrifice style or current trends either.  Today I am taking you inside my favorite thrift shop: Working Wardrobes Outlet in Huntington Beach, to show you two looks I pulled together showing some great fall 2016 fashion trends.
