Every once in a while, I will come across an outfit that is simple and just needs a few accessories to dress it up. This is definitely one of those looks for me.
The black dress is from Ashley Nell Tipton’s Boutique+ line at JCPenney. The fabric is so incredibly soft and gorgeous. It almost feels like a really light neoprene or a light scuba fabric. It also has a gorgeous rose gold zipper at the back. It also has pockets and we know I’m a sucker for a dress with pockets! I bought it on sale for about $30. I did get it in a 2x because this collection tends to run on the larger side.
I paired the dress with simple black leggings and black booties. I also wore a scalloped gold necklace and an embellished gold headband. When a dress is simple and beautiful, you only need a couple of accessories to tie the look together.
If you don’t know much about Ashley Nell Tipton, she was the Season 14 winner of Project Runway. I love this show and have watched it religiously almost every season. She was the only person on the show to ever do an all plus-size model collection for the finale. I think she’s an amazing designer and love that she wanted to design for larger women.
