What I Wore: ELOQUII Maxi Dress

eloquii floral maxi dress

Gotta love a brand that just KNOWS your style.  Earlier this week, ELOQUII reached out and shared this dress saying they thought it was so me.  Yeah, I do love me a floral maxi dress, and I have many from ELOQUII that I positively adore. And this dark floral maxi dress is a perfect way to ring in fall.

I love a maxi dress almost as much as I do a jumpsuit.  Didn't shave your legs? Throw on a maxi dress.  Summer, pair with flat sandals.  Winter, style with tall boots.  Layer with a leather or denim jacket.  Glam it up with some sparkly jewelry and lots of mascara, or keep it chill with a messy topknot. While I wouldn't wear a maxi dress to most offices, there's few other places I won't wear one.

This one from ELOQUII is stretchy, machine washable, and comes in three patterns (visit the site and you'll see a familiar print – yep I had this same dress last winter in a different floral). It's travel-friendly too (the other dress I had in this silhouette went to LA, NYC, and Charleston with me).

I mentioned in this post that Jenny Bird sent me two pairs of earrings from her upcoming fall collection; this is the other pair I chose.  They are not yet available on the site but stay tuned for they will be soon.  If you sign up for Jenny Bird emails you'll be notified when they become available along with all the other beautiful pieces from this season's collection.

    You’re like a woodland queen in this elegant dress! Eloquii really knows their customer!

    I have actually never had a maxi dress (well, when I was 13 and went to a classmate’s bar mitzvah…and at my wedding, ha ha), but I can’t say I never will. Isn’t it amazing that at this point in time we can wear almost anything at any length??

    Oh, this makes me think of what I call your snow queen dress. That gorgeous red one from some years back!

    Love that dress! The colors are gorgeous.

    I have a question about wrap dresses. Most of the time I can’t wear them in my regular size because they don’t cover my chest well enough. Is it possible to size up so that the chest is covered, or would this make the rest of the dress too big?

      It really depends on the cut of the dress and the fabric. With a dress like this one I think you could size up and it would still work. A lot of true wrap dresses would also work because you can cinch the waist. This dress is quite generous in the bust area (I’m an F cup) and is designed so that those who have a smaller bust it doesn’t look empty.

    You look wonderful!

    Any suggestions for those of us who can’t wear a chest-revealing neckline (surgical scars) but would love to wear a dress like this?
