What I Wore: An ELOQUII Valentine (and a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter Fashion

It's no secret that I have a crush on ELOQUII. For so many years, plus size fashion was devoid of fun. After a short stint as part of The Limited, ELOQUII came back on their own with a mission to make fun and fashionable plus size apparel. And boy do they deliver! Gorgeous color, cutting edge trends, and clothing that celebrates the wearer, doesn't hide her. The people behind the brand are just as awesome – they truly love their customers and want to provide them with an awesome style experience, whether it's with an online purchase or in one of their brick and mortar stores (I'm lucky to live near one of the three ELOQUII stores here in DC and shopping there is such a treat). I couldn't think of any other brand I'd want to wear on Valentine's Day than ELOQUII.

Dress: Lace Fit and Flare c/o ELOQUII (14) | Bag: ALLSAINTS | Shoes: Dune of London

I am attending an event later this month where the dress code is pink and cocktail attire. I asked ELOQUII if I could  have this dress. This dress is just as pretty in person as it is online. I decided to wear it to dinner at Fish by Jose Andres when we visited MGM National Harbor this weekend. I love hot pink with leopard, and pulled out these calf hair pumps I bought a year or so ago. However, this dress would look great with nude pumps, a delicate strappy heel in a soft metallic, or even a pointed toe flat in a contrast color like Kelly green. With the lace sleeves, this is a three-season dress that would be great for Date Night, a holiday party, or a wedding.

2017 was the year I truly fell in love with ELOQUII. Some of my favorite clothes in my closets are from the brand. I wore ELOQUII to Diner en Blanc, wore ELOQUII on television to model for the brand, even hosted an event at their DC-area store. I love that if there's a trend out there I want to embrace (hello pajama trend!), ELOQUII likely has made it and in a way that flatters a curvy frame.

When ELOQUII heard I was hosting giveaways to celebrate you, the Wardrobe Oxygen readers, they were excited to participate. ELOQUII generously is offering one Wardrobe Oxygen reader a $300 e-gift card to have a little shopping spree to treat herself. Offering clothing as well as accessories, footwear, lingerie, and swimwear, ELOQUII can outfit you from head to toe in fabulous fashion. Thank you ELOQUII for this giveaway and for being an all-around awesome brand!

    Their Kady pants are a favorite.

  • Delora February 19, 2018

    I haven’t tried Eloquii yet, but I really need to. I had to buy a new business suit last year, and had the absolute worst time finding anything that fit over my bust in regular stores. Definitely eyeing the Ali jacket, and the Kady pants in the Gena fit (because all my weight is in my belly and chest, and my legs are like toothpicks).

  • BA February 19, 2018

    I would totally get the Grace pointed toe flat (maybe in a few different colors) so I can jump on the loafer trend.

  • Ceyris February 18, 2018

    Love everything about this frock – it has colour, texture, shape and swing. Don’t we all need more of that in our lives?

  • Jennifer February 17, 2018

    I’d love a pair of distressed jeans.

    • Jennifer February 17, 2018

      Their catalogue came in the mail earlier this week. My daughter circled all the things she thought I should order and that she could wear when I grow tired of them. She’s six.

    I would love to try a dress! I have some tops and pants, but I really need a fun spring dress…

  • ErinG February 15, 2018

    The hot pink leopard combo is amazing on you! Honestly, though, I’d prefer to see a lower neckline on the dress… The funny thing to me is that before following your blog I would never have realized that what I felt was a bit “off” was the high neckline with a longer midi hemline! Thank you for helping me hone in on my own preferences!!!

  • Kristin February 15, 2018

    I love the pink with the animal print shoes!!!

  • Misty February 15, 2018

    I love Eloquii, and I am so glad they offer some items in petite cuts. I am a 12/14 and only 5’1 so some of their items run large on me, and I struggle with the lengths. But I would love the polka dot bell sleeve top!

  • Jennifer P. February 15, 2018

    I need some more Kady pants!

  • Laurel February 15, 2018

    Huge fan of Eloquii! Over the past year they have become my go-to for business and casual wear. Can’t say which item I would purchase, because I have a cart full ready to go on the website as I type! Seems like Eloquii always has something for me when I need a fashion fix.

  • Precious February 15, 2018

    I’d definitely start with Studio Tie Waist Faux Leather Dress as it’s slightly tailored but with a harder edge.Which pretty much describes me.

  • Mary W February 14, 2018

    I would order the Lace Detail Sheath Dress. Perfect for so many occasions

  • Susan P. February 14, 2018

    I’d like to try the Eloquii colored work pants you featured in your recent capsule.

  • tonia February 14, 2018

    I would love to try Eloqui! I am looking for a versatile dress and even though it’s hot pink, yours fits the bill! Thank you for the opportunity Allie!

  • Lucinda February 14, 2018

    That pink dress is a great choice for you. Eloquii has a lot of wonderful things. The biggest gap in my wardrobe right now is dressy (but not too dressy) tops. The Belted Short Sleeve Tee or the Relaxed Flare Sleeve Top look like they would be good choices

  • Jenne February 14, 2018

    I love the brocade blazer and the neoprene skirt.

  • Sarah February 14, 2018

    I love their accessories and I’ve really been ogling some of the stuff they have coming out soon, like the polka dot shirt and the red and black jumpsuit. I wish they would open up more brick and mortar stores, too!

  • MHM February 14, 2018

    The striped cutout button detail too is just the sort of thing I’m looking for now that I’m staying home with kiddos but still want to look pulled together (and totally love that dress!!)

  • Kate February 14, 2018

    I have and love their neoprene pencil skirt. It would be great to stock up on more colors–it’s such an easy outfit with a black v-neck sweater. Love that pink dress too, if only I had somewhere to wear it!

  • Sumi R February 14, 2018

    I love the Raglan Wrap Dress in polka dot print! So cute!

  • Michelle February 14, 2018

    This looks adorable on you! What a great Spring dress too. I would buy something green if I won. My favorite color and it looks like Eloquii has a lot to offer right now.

  • Chris Murton February 14, 2018

    I like the Ali Blazer and the Kristen Tunic top. They’d be going onto my list.

  • Susan February 14, 2018

    This is a really pretty dress. It looks like a little too much fabric in the bust? Is that just an illusion in the photos?

    • Alison at Wardrobe Oxygen February 14, 2018

      Yes the dress is a bit big for me. Since working out 14W doesn’t always fit me correctly. Im thinking about getting it altered I like it so much.

  • Shamika George February 14, 2018

    Eloquii is definitely one of my favorites and my mom’s as well. We talk to each other all the time when new releases happen. I love their fun colorful prints and unmistakable Eloquii aesthetic.

  • Jennifer February 14, 2018

    That asymmetrical pleated dress is so perfect for work!

  • Ashley H February 14, 2018

    Eloquii’s work tops can’t be beat. I love the looks of the asymmetric pleated short sleeve top In green – trying to bring more pops of color to my black wardrobe.

  • Krista Alexander February 14, 2018

    I always go black when it says cocktail. I love the pink!

  • Gretchen February 14, 2018

    I cannot wait to wear my sequin dress from ELOQUII to an event next month.

  • jodie February 14, 2018

    I love some of their shoes. I’ve been vacillating on a pair of white booties…and I keep talking myself out of them!! But hey…why not??

  • mami2jcn February 14, 2018

    I’d love the Cross Front Ruched Dress.

  • jo hast February 14, 2018

    Such a pretty shade on you! Happy Valentines day!!

  • Kate K February 14, 2018

    I have just loved their striped dresses lately–I feel like I have far too many striped dresses in my wardrobe already but they are doing really unique things with how they’re patterned and how they’re cut. I’d love to try one!

  • Mary February 14, 2018

    I would love to try some clothes from Eloquii! I have really appreciated you featuring them here!

  • Erica February 14, 2018

    I would buy that dress and slay at a wedding I’m going to in April!

  • charlie February 14, 2018

    What a GORGEOUS color! You may inspire me to walk away from black yet… (maybe 🙂 )

  • Kris C. February 14, 2018

    I would never think of pairing those leopard shoes with that beautiful dress, but it works!

  • Brenda February 14, 2018

    That multicolored striped trumpet skirt is pretty hot. I’d pair it with a tight leather jacket and be ready to hit the town 1980s style

  • Grace February 14, 2018

    Eloqui’s clothes are always what I think of as FUN. I’m old enough to be pretty choosy about trends– but your blog really helps me feel braver about many. 🙂 I would love to win this and be brave!

  • Briana February 14, 2018

    I always default to black dresses, but I love this hot pink on you – Makes me consider branching out!

  • Amy February 14, 2018

    What a gorgeous dress! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, and as we move into spring.

  • Vivi February 14, 2018

    And yes to Eloquii coming into the plus size fashion industry and making a name (and statement!) for themselves.

  • Jenna February 14, 2018

    Eloquii does the just-below-knee skirt so well, and you look amazing in that dress!

    omg you look adorable. the tie back v neck tee is super cute.

  • Becca February 14, 2018

    I looked through some of their site trying to see what I would want to get and honestly I’d have a hard time deciding! I’m really liking all the asymmetrical necklines and details they have on their tops – it makes them interesting without resorting to a loud pattern, which isn’t really my style.

  • Claire C. February 14, 2018

    Really pretty dress ! And, thank you for reminding me of Eloquii – their Gena pant shape is perfect for me. Here’s what I would pick out on their website: Kady Fit Double-Weave Pant – classic color, fabric looks very lush and ankle-length is perfect for me. I’ll pass the Eloquii web site on to others!

  • Fran February 14, 2018

    That dress would be perfect for my neices’ weddings this summer. Those are what I am currently shopping for.

  • Hmacski February 14, 2018
