A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed for People Magazine talking about trends and the ones I loved with eloquii. Now, if you are new to my blog, then you should know that eloquii and I have a long relationship. I loved them when they launched, called them out for their opening of stores without sharing, fashioned an open letter to eloquii, announced their rebranding, and sooo much more. Basically, I care about this brand, as its success at the time meant so much more to the community then just another place to shop.
SO, when they asked if I wanted to be interviewed, naturally I was hyped. ESPECIALLY as it was for People Style Watch online! Talking trends, embracing the new, staring them in the face, I shared a few reasons why I chose each of those looks, how they made me feel and today I wanted to break down each look for your review, as a few of you had asked me about each dress and shoes, and more!
My Style: Spring Trending with Eloquii for People StyleWatch
Like a look? I have hyperlinked it for you! Just click the name or image
Look 1: Floral Print Scuba Dress
I dug the print here and I was soooo curious about this dress. I could see myself in this a few times… but because of the hemline, this is definitely more for play than for work! But I do dig this one! I paired this dress with my BCBG coral trimmed and see through pumps as a neutral… to ground the dress!
Look 2: Classic Seamed Sheath Dress
I chose this dress solely on the neckline. I haven’t seen anything like this! I loved the stair step neckline, playing up the attention to the girls, which I do not mind at all. The length, color, and fit allow this dress to seamlessly go from day to night! Versatile and timeless? It has a home in my closet. Paired with my Sam Edelman cork heels from season’s past, I am ready for spring here!
Look 3: Mixed Stripe Dress
My favorite dress hands down. I can see this living for eternity in my life. LOL. The way the lines play on the curvature of my waist and thighs, heyyyyyyy boo! Add to my ever loving fascination with the black and white spring trend? I am here for all of this! I wanted to see how gold would sit with this, so I paired my Shoedazzle heels with it, for a playful day look… I am not sure if I love it, but at least I have another way to go here!
This look may be familiar as I rocked out with this for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon! They liked this look too and wanted me to share it as well! I was pleasantly surprised with this cut and fabrication, as this dress was my first introduction to the brand since its launch, and I bought it, expedited shipping, JUST so I could report back to you (and of course have a fit for my event!!!)! I paired these heels from Shoedazzle to the mix and this is what I got!
And there you have it!
