ELOQUII tassel front mazi dress in red as seen on wardrobe oxygenI saw dresses similar to these on Instagram, but they cost an insane amount of money and anyway they weren't available in double-digit sizes.  I was scrolling through ELOQUII and there is a similar dress, much lower in price, and available in a broad range of sizes.  ELOQUII is constantly adding to their selection and they do such a good job at translating popular fashion trends in a way that is flattering, wearable, not cheap but not overpriced.

Wardrobe Oxygen in the ELOQUII Tassel Front Maxi Dress in redThis is not a dress for a wallflower.  The bold color, the fringe and tassels, the stiffer fabric… it's a lot of dress.  It also garners a lot of comments and compliments. But this summer it has been a favorite.  Many Fridays like this one, I wear it when working from home.  While the fabric is stiffer, it breathes nicely, The dress has super deep pockets so I can throw everything in them to run to get a coffee or pick Emerson up from school.  I shared it on Instagram last week after getting an inced coffee from our neighborhood cafe.

Wardrobe Oxygen in the ELOQUII Tassel Front Maxi Dress in redIt's a surprisingly versatile dress.  Switch out the self belt for a vintage brown leather one.  This winter wear with a fitted black turtleneck and black knee-high boots.  This fall, wear with ankle booties.  I've worn it with tan sandals, but like how the gold ones give it a bit of a dressier feel without making the look overdone or complicated.  This summer I wore it over my bathing suit a couple times when I wanted to look pulled together but wasn't ready to change and get properly dressed.  While ELOQUII shows the dress with the neckline tied closed, I find it more flattering on me with it open.

    The dress is really cute, it’s unusual maybe even goes a little bit on a hippie side and i love it!

    Wow! In that almost profile picture without the sunglasses, you look like a renaissance painting! Say kudos to Karl for me. Beautiful, beautiful image.

    I hope you don’t get offended about my comment. I think your dress has a Russian vibe about it. When I looked up Russian folk dresses I saw why. You were talking about embroidered boots recently. I think a pair of those would do well with that dress. Do you think that would be too costumey for your taste?

    Because I’m so into Halloween, I would buy the real Russian felt embroidered boots, the fancy headdress that goes with the outfit, convince my partner to wear a Russian man’s shirt and boots, and maybe even learn a Russian folk dance or 2.

    OK, so that’s my fantasy and would be too expensive for me to pull off but I like the picture I see in my imagination.

      Not offended at all! As for boots, I’d likely go with a simple black or brown leather to let the pattern of the dress shine (though I do love the embroidered boot trend!).
