Yesterday I was saddened to find out that Eloquii (The Limited’s plus size brand) was phasing out at the end of the summer. When I first heard about The Limited’s venture into the plus size market a year ago I was very excited. Their clothes in my opinion were well made and fit into all aspects of my life, especially work. Plus size women have different styles and want variety in our clothing to fit our personal tastes. To assume all plus size women dress the same is absurd. Eloquii provided another option for quality and stylish plus size clothing. In the end, I really hope another company buys the brand and continues Eloquii. It would be a shame to lose another plus size retailer, further shrinking our already limited clothing options.
Here are some of my favorite Eloquii outfits:
My outfit today is inspired by a comment made by Nicole from A Well Rounded Venture on Monday’s post. Her comment ” I keep hearing people say leopard is a neutral-it must be true!” got me thinking about other colors I could wear my blouse with. I usually wear leopard print with colors like brown, black or burgundy to be safe. I wanted to switch it up, so after rummaging through my closet I decided to wear it with my purple pencil skirt and magenta blazer. I was very happy with this departure from my typical leopard print outfit. I really liked the print with berry colors. Nicole’s comment helped me to break out of wearing only dark colors with leopard print and remix my wardrobe! Thanks Nicole!
Have a wonderful weekend!
