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.)
Recently, 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.)
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.
What are your favorite outfits from Eloquii’s Extended Sizes Lookbook? Let me know in the comments!
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!
