Not very long ago Eloquii announced they’d be adding sizes 26 and 28 to their collection. Being a size 28 myself, I can tell you there was much rejoicing. At first, they only made a few basic items available in these sizes, hardly enough to make a whole outfit. Since then, their selection has grown in leaps and bounds. I was stoked when my blogging buddy, Lei-Loni from Clothe Your Curves, shared their brand new Extended Sizes Lookbook on her Facebook. I already have a couple of the midis pictured, and it was cool to see different ways to style them.

In the above picture, the model and I are wearing the Studio Midi Skirt in two different colors. I totally love the citron yellow, so I was pretty bummed that it was out of stock in my size at the time of this post. Hopefully they’ll restock it soon because it’s the perfect summer color. Another issue I found with the lookbook is not all of the garments pictured, such as the Moto Jacket, are available in extended sizes. For someone like me who is a smaller size on top, that’s not such a big deal, but if you have a larger bust, that’s something to think about. All things considered, I really love the edgy way Eloquii styled this skirt, and I wish I knew where they found the cute ice cream clutch! (See my outfit post wearing this midi skirt here.)

eloquii-lookbook-collage-2Recently, I wore the Fit and Flare Midi in an outfit post, and it looks like Eloquii and I had the same idea for styling it with black and white. With both outfits, my take was a little more retro, but that’s just how I am. As much as I dig novelty prints and all that is cute and kitschy, sometimes I prefer a sleek, sophisticated outfit, and Eloquii hits the mark with that. Also, I like the length of their midis. Since I’m tallish (5’9′), midi skirts from other places often hit me at the knee (or even shorter). The calf length of the skirt is perfect for my height, but you may want to hem it if you’re not as tall. (See my outfit post here.)
ELOQUII Plus Size Studio Mix Tiered Dress
As cool as their lookbook is, some of my favorites pieces didn’t show up in it, such as the above Studio Mix Tiered Dress, so its worth checking out their entire extended size collection in sizes 26 & 28. Even still, it’s pretty awesome to see someone closer to my actual size model their clothing. I may even branch out from their midi skirts and try out an actual dress now that I have a better idea of how they would fit me.

Also, don’t let the prices scare you from trying out their clothes. I can speak to the fact that these are investment pieces you’ll wear for many seasons which are easy to coordinate with other garments. PS – Eloquii often has HUGE sales! Currently they’re offering 40% off all original ticket dresses and skirts, as well as 25% off all other original ticket items with the code LOVEMAY.

EDIT: I found out the model in the lookbook’s name is Sarah Conley. Check out her fabulous blog, Style It!

Totally Random Outfit | Mixing Prints and Texture

*This post contains affiliate links. If clicked and a sale is made, I receive a commission. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that make Super Style Me possible!texture-fullHello and welcome to another exciting outfit post! While I’d like to say I spent a lot of time and consideration picking out what I’m wearing here, these pictures were more of an excuse to play with my new toy, a Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR FX lens. I’m far from being an expert photographer, but I love fashion pics with blurry, or bokeh, backgrounds. After doing some research, I found out that this was the right lens for the job. It makes the outfit pop, don’t you think? I also have been relentlessly chasing my friends’ pets to take pictures with cool lens effects. Turns out, dogs really don’t like to stay still…

texture-mid-rightAll things considered, this outfit was a happy accident. While I’ve played around with print mixing, texture is new for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered this Eloquii skirt, but I figured what the heck since it was on sale. Textured fabrics, like tweed, have a reputation for being heavy, but this skirt has some sheer elements which makes it wearable in the spring.

texture-mid-skirtSolid colors are perfect for wardrobe staples, but textures add that little something extra. Who says your go-to pieces of clothing have to be flat and boring? The checkerboard pattern in the skirt mixes well with the polka dot top – another one of my not so “basic” basics.

texture-medThat day I felt like a little kid who was allowed to pick her own outfit for the first time. “I want to wear pink and polka dots and gold and sparkles!” is something I could imagine my four-year-old self saying. Some things never change!
