Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend. It’s hard to believe but New Year’s Eve is just around the corner so this week on the blog I am going to share some NYE worthy looks.
This post features an amazing dress from ELOQUII. ELOQUII has certainly pulled out all the stops this year in bringing us a fantastic array of options for the holiday season.
And they weren’t shy in providing us plus size gals with all the trendy options that are hot this year from full on sequins to velvet to shimmering metallics, body suits and rich jewel tone hues.
I love that I can go on their site and know I will find something that is fashion forward, high quality and fits well. And they have new arrivals come out every day so there is always something fresh and inspiring.
I am wearing the Studio Lame Wrap Dress. I first saw this dress when I was planning my 5×5 challenge and I had considered it for that but decided that it was so stunning that it needed to be showcased on its own.
This dress is a classic wrap style with a fit and flare silhouette and full skirt. I love the classic style of this dress combined with the twist of this amazing fabric that is so full of metallic goodness and takes on many different shades depending on the light you are in.
I don’t like to wear long sleeves, especially for a dress for a party but the sleeves on this dress are actually very comfortable and not too tight. The fabric is also very light weight so I didn’t get too hot wearing it.
And although the fabric is lightweight, the dress is fully lined providing great coverage. The other detail that they got right with this? The tie at the waist is the proper length for us plus size gals so that when you wrap it around and tie it up, it is even! I can’t stand when this doesn’t work properly.
I am wearing the size 28 and I thought the fit was generous. If you are really small on top compared to the bottom, I would definitely consider sizing down.
To complete this look I had to add some extra special accessories and that started with these amazing sequined block heels that are also from ELOQUII. I am absolutely thrilled with block heels being on trend again because it has provided me with some great options for being able to wear heels.
These shoes are perfect for your party look and will provide you with style and comfort. And the bow detail is just too cute. I am wearing the size 9 and I felt they were true to size. They also come in black.
I wanted to stick to the metallic colour palette so I added this stunning topaz statement necklace that I got from SexyPlus Clothing. With the deep v-neckline I wanted something that was a statement piece but it had to be long and narrow and this was the perfect choice. I then added some simple stud earrings.
Finally I had to add a Lisa worthy clutch and this beauty that I got from ALDO fit the requirements. The gunmetal finish and large assortment of jewels was perfect to stand out against the dress. A perfect red lip was my final touch for that dramatic finish.
I think this outfit is perfect for NYE because it is full of glitz and glam but also understated at the same time because of its classic style. Whether its an intimate dinner with your special someone or a party with friends you will be sure to stand out from the crowd.
