Tracee Elliss Ross Collection for JCPenney

When I heard that Tracee Ellis Ross was doing a clothing collection, I was ecstatic before I even saw the promos or campaign art. To me, Tracee Ellis Ross is a modern-day fashion icon. She takes risks with her fashion without ever being distasteful or clownish. From Girlfriend’s to Blackish, Tracee’s fashion sense has always been on trend, but timeless. Not only does her fashion sense have moments of playfulness, so does her personality. “Everyday Joy” is the running theme of her collection at JCPenney and it accurately depicts the essence of what we all love about Tracee, her joyful spirit!

Tracee thought of “Every Body” when it came to the design of her collection. The sizes range from Small-3X and yes curvy ladies, it’s standard plus size, not junior plus size. There is a price point for every budget ($17-$74). Her collection contains business and casual pieces, dressy pieces, a sequin party dress and night clothes. It also offers houseware pieces and accessories such as scarves and handbags.

When her collection dropped I headed straight to my JCPenney store. There were still some items in stock, but most of it was gone. I tried on two of the dresses that were left in plus sizes: The Glorious Elbow SleeveFloral Fit and Flare Dress in (2X) and the Glow Short Sleeve Reversible SequinDress (2X). I loved the first dress that I tried on, the Floral Fit and Flare, it hit me in just the right places and the print was so vibrant and beautiful to me. I ended up purchasing this dress.

The sequin dress, I did not have so much luck with this dress because I am short and stout it looked  more like  a costume on me and less of a wearable dress, the shape wasn't flattering on me. I could realistically see myself wearing this dress anywhere, so I did not purchase, but the video below shows me trying it on in the dressing room.  I saw Tracee in the pink version and it looked so comfy and fun on her, she was able to pull it off being slender and tall. With all that being said, the construction of the dress was immaculate and I was very impressed by this. Both dresses were lined and had quality sturdy material.

I went online and saw some other dresses and I purchased the Illuminated Long Sleeve Velvet Bodycon Dress. This dress is EVERYTHING!!! It’s cut just right, hits at the waist and doesn’t make my belly the star of the show.  The color is beautiful and rich, perfect for the holidays, but could be worn way past December. As you can see in the pics I felt beautiful in this dress!

I hope this is helpful check out the links within the article, they’ll take you to the site to purchase if you love what you see and want to try it out too. Thanks for reading beauties!!!
