Another Sunday and it is Tall Fashion time!
I am always looking for retailers that have offerings that might suit me, that fit and that are flattering. We also know that I am a size 16, which I dare say makes things even a bit more complicated. My height in combination with my curves is a wonderful combination in my opinion, however it certainly makes shopping challenging.
I came across Eloquii on social media. Eloquii caters to the curvaceous ladies, carrying sizes 14-24. Reading their words, “We know that Fashion and Style does not stop at a size 12” and “It is time for fashion to move forward’ was like music to my ears.
I am fresh off a recent frustrating moment, when I uncovered that a certain large retailer that did a highly publicized collaboration with a very popular High Fashion House, was only going to release the highly coveted pieces up to a size 12. It should not have surprised me as much as it did I suppose. Sadly too many designers still do not cater to the curvier ladies amongst us.
Well ladies, Eloquii has arrived to change that. I was AMAZED with the wide variety of their collection. There is a high rotation of new pieces that are added and I would go as far as saying that you cannot visit Eloquii.com without falling in love with at least 1 piece. Leave it to Bree to fall in love with many pieces that at first sight could work with my tall frame. So off I went to take the plunge and try some of their items.
Long behold, most of their pieces fit me beautifully! Jackets and pants, not so much as I am missing the length there, but skirts, tops and blouses are all winners.
I decided to order a size up from what I normally wear, after reading some of their measurements, and that was a good call. I think I will be an 18 in most of their pieces.
Now allow me to share some Eloquii goodness!
I could not resist this Lemon Lime tulle skirt. It is just so much fun! This beautiful piece gives you a huge splurge of color that will be the highlight of any ensemble. I will have a blast styling this piece.
The Tulle Skirt comes in a whopping 7 colors, including black if you are looking for something less flashy. I am glad this skirt is allowing me to fulfill my childhood dream of wanting to be a ballerina in some small way.
To compliment the skirt, I handpicked this short-sleeved blouse with a gorgeous embellished collar. Look a little closer; the hand-sewn embellishment work on the collar is stunning.
It was a little chilly so I threw on my oldie but goodie faux leather jacket from Long Tall Sally. This look was completed with one of my many personal Shoes of Prey shoe designs.
One thing I caught onto very quickly when browsing Eloquii.com is the numerous matching skirt/top combinations they have. A plethora of skirt/top sets in a variety of colors, prints and fabrics. This is honestly very exciting!
Having to limit myself to one set, I picked this set with the unique print they call Kaleidoscope.
Does it surprise you that I do succeed on occasion with practicing self-control when shopping? The stretchy scuba fabric of the skirt and top allows for a comfortable fit. Wear it together or separately, you can’t go wrong!
One of my recent new additions to my shoe collection are the LTS Castor Leather Boots. These boots are everything and you will see a lot of them the coming weeks!
Well ladies, I hope you love these first looks from Eloquii. I will be back next week with more Tall fun!
