When I saw the CityChic Open Rose dress in “Fruit Salad” in Gwynnie Bee’s new releases I just had to try it.  Summer is the time of the year to wear all the fun prints, and a dress covered in fruit and flowers is just that.  This dress is available at Gwynnie Bee in several other prints: florals and fireworks and more. While this print may be a bit too wacky for my workplace, I can’t wait to wear it to a cookout or date night.

Wardrobe Oxygen in Ellos denim jacket and City Chic Fruit Salad Dress via Gwynnie BeeEllos recently sent me some pieces and this jacket is one of them.  Not knowing the brand well, I decided to go large with sizes and got this denim jacket in 16.  I should have gotten a 14; while it fits really well in the arms and shoulders, the body is a bit too boxy for me.  I’ll be honest, the pictures I ended up choosing from the ones Karl took were the ones where the jacket looked the best/less boxy.  But I like the shorter length; it works far better with dresses than my J. Crew Factory denim jacket.  The denim is nice – not too heavy, stretchy but so tightly woven it doesn’t look stretchy and it doesn’t stretch out.  I wore their shirtdress (M) and wedge espadrilles in my Strong Women in Fashion post, and as I type this I’m wearing their Off the Shoulder Tee in 14/16 (which isn’t off the shoulder and is made of awesome fabric that keeps its size and shape after being washed and dried).  Expect to see more Ellos on the blog; they have great basics in sizes up to 5X and even wide width shoes, all at really nice prices.
