They are a breakout from The Limited. I wasnt sure how I was going to like thier clothing, mostly becasue its so classic and there are not many trendy pieces. I was confident that the quality would be good, since I know what The Limited quality is like. And I was also nervous about the cost... I know that The Limited can be pricey.
So, eloquii had a nice sale (spend $150 save $50) around the holiday time, and I jumped on it.. and then they had another sale - ($20.12 on all sweaters), so I jumped again ... and then they had another sale (all outerwear $49.99) - sad to say, I missed this one. But hopefully my "coat fairy" saw the email I sent him and he will grant atleast one of my wishes... we shall see.
I think the Eloquii line is nice. Its definitely a classic look, similar to a Talbots or Anne Taylor. The few pieces that are considered "fun and trendy" are a not really my choice or taste. I like to stick to the classic pieces and then pair them with trendy (less expensive) items from other stores. The Eloquii line is the perfect choice for the working professional. The choices for classic suit and office styling are really nice. I think that the sizing runs small. I ordered 14/16 for my tops and 18 bottoms, which is what I usually purchase when shopping plus size stores. But I had to return everything and get 18/20 sweaters and 20 bottoms. Still not sure if the 20 bottoms will fit, we'll see. Also, all the sleeves on the sweaters i purchased are short - 3/4 length. I was surprised to learn this, but not to bothered by it.
PROS - I really like the quality. I really like the classic styling.
CONS - I think the sizing runs small. The sleeves are short.
So here is what I purchased in my haul, with small commentary on the items that I have worn:
FA REAAAALLL - this was a beautiful purchase. And yes, the sleeves are 3/4. Basically the pics are decieving, look at how its scrunched at her elbows. This would lead someone to think that the sleeves are long.
I adored this. And when BFF Courtney saw this, she wanted one too.. so when they went on sale again, I snagged her one too. I hope she likes it as much as I do. I want to find a red skirt or maybe my red jeans to wear this with too..
I grabbed this one just cuz it was cute.. but Im still not sure how I will wear it.
Here is what Im wishing for:
I already have a classic trnch, but the quality is not that good. Its stays wrinkled.
I think this one would be perrfect for me.
The jewelry below is pretty self explanatory - its nice! I likey!
