Love this look? There's more! Head over to Eloquii's Style & Substance page to see all five looks.
One of my biggest challenges as a 5'3 woman is finding items that truly work for my size and as a plus size woman that challenge is even more evident and frustrating. Often times, ordering something online or purchasing clothing in-store means a second trip to the tailor and with that an additional expense. Even worse, I am often left making purchasing decisions, not based on loving a piece of clothing but on if it can be tailored, how many adjustments would be needed and how much extra will it cost me. Oh and if you think that taking up a hem is all that is needed, then I am here to tell you that it takes a lot more than that and sometimes the final product is not as great as you hoped.
So when Eloquii shared with me their thoughts of launching a petite capsule collection I was nearly in tears. The idea of ordering one of their amazing dresses and knowing it was designed to fit my curves and my height was a dream. Early on in the development process I sat down with Eloquii and shared my thoughts about fit and styling for a petite woman. I shared many of the concerns I had and some of the problems I had experiences with their pieces. They took a lot of notes and let me tell you ladies, they listened! A few months ago a went back in for a fitting and all I can tell you is that I could not stop looking at myself in awe at how amazing everything looked. Finally, everything hit perfectly the small of my waist and didn't feel long and overwhelming. I honestly left wanting every single piece from the collection!
So ladies to celebrate the newest addition to the Eloquii family, I took the Eloquii team along with me on a crazy career girl, blogger life, family woman, fun-filled weekend and showed them how their Petite Cinched Waist Faux Leather Jacket paired with some of my favorite petite pieces saved the day! Now you guys know that I am one busy gal, so make sure to head over to Eloquii's Style & Substance to see how our crazy weekend went, which looks I picked and how this hot jacket and this amazing capsule works just as hard as I do.
A special thank you goes out to Trevon James for these beautiful images.
