Plus Size Style OOTD: Stripes and Ruffles from Eloquii

Eloquii is absolutely KILLIN’ IT in the plus size market! Every month it seems like they are coming out with a dress or a jumpsuit that I absolutely must have! I am so so so so happy that we have such a high-quality, on-trend option that consistently puts out amazing, innovative and stylish clothes for plus size women. This is just one of the adorable dresses that came out this summer: The Studio Striped Ruffle Dress. Psssssst-It’s on sale right now!

French Flair from my Gwynnie Bee Closet: Eloquii Hi Low Skirt

It’s been a while since I posted about my love for Gwynnie Bee and what an awesome resource it is for plus size fashionistas who want variety in their closets! But I thought it was time to feature it again, since there’s so much happening over at the “hive” and they are turning 4 years old! A ton of new lines have been added and the Gwynnie Bee selection is out of this world! {Check out Gwynnie Bee Here, if you’re interested!}

Eloquii is one of their recent acquisitions, and I am thrilled, since that line is on the pricier side, and I love having access to so many of their fabulous pieces for one monthly rate. This allows me to play around with many different looks and take chances with my fashion, without the financial investment…and without taking up permanent space in my closet! Here’s a recent example of a fun outfit I put together with the Eloquii Slick Scuba Hi Lo Skirt from Gwynnie Bee. It’s got a ton of French Flair, n’est pas?

The scuba knit fabric of this Eloquii skirt is heavier and you can definitely tell it’s higher quality. The under skirt is shorter, and the front panel is split to reveal flashes of your legs underneath — so it’s modest, but with a hint of sex appeal. Oh, and of course…for all of you pocket-lovers out there, there are pockets at the hip. Eloquii always runs small (I learned that from trying on so many Gwynnie Bee items!) so be sure to order a size up!

Outfit of the Day

The worst part about living alone is that I don’t have anyone to take my picture! πŸ™ So…I know these pictures kind of suck, but it’s the best I can do at the moment. Oh, and ignore the weird date stamp, I took this picture on Wednesday, but the timer on my camera is way off.

So…here’s me at the end of a very long day. But, I love my dress so much, I had to share. The long peplum is on-trend right now, and the graphic stripes are also in line with some of the architectural details that I’ve seen in the fashion mags lately. The detail at the bodice is my favorite, and the way the stripes interact is very flattering. I hate that I don’t have a pic of the back-it has an exposed zipper! Anyway, let me know what you think. I’ll try to get my camera act together, I promise!

So anyway, I did end up going to the Akira Plus-Size Fashion Show last night…and it was actually pretty fun…if ultimately a gimmick. I’ll post pictures and give a full report soon!
xoxo
