Tangerine Dreams

It is really all or none with me.  I think I have one top that is orange, but now that it's being seen everyone I have made several tangerine purchases.  Darn those subliminal messages.  Anyways, this post actually is giving me a chance to review a piece from Eloquii.  This is the first piece that I have purchased.  I love this dress in particular. It's easy to wear and make for a great spring/summer frock.  It's good quality, pretty much what you would expect from any major retailer.  The fit of this dress is on the large size.  The lining and be a bit snug, but I always cut out the lining of garments.  They just end up being constricting and unflattering.  I ordered a size 20. I could have easily ordered one size down.  I always order big for fit purposes, because I can always go to the tailor.

The only thing I that I didn't like about the dress was that the back was supposed to have a bow on the back at the nape of the neck, but there are just buttons.

  1. You look great! I bet there's a way you can add a bow, maybe get some silk fabric or something.

  4. Very cute! I'm a 14/16 & have unfortunately found that Eloquii just runs too large for me to wear. It's really a shame because their stuff is so cute, & I'm usually too big for straight sizes.

  13. The dress is so adorable, you truly look like spring! I was interested in your comments about lined garments - I look for things with lining because I find that it makes my items fall better/smoother. Except in plus size garments, the lining is sometimes cheap or the wrong fabric for the garment so then I have to cut it out and wear a slip, which annoys me. Any suggestions? I love the tailor too, by the way - sometimes just a little stitch makes something picture perfect!

    1. Hi Juliette, I dont really have any other suggestions -- if the lining is in the way I cut it out and wear my own undergarments underneath, which I guess serves as lining.
