Feeling Some Stripe of Way

Striped shirt dress: c/o ELVI Clothing| Jeans: c/o Lovesick, worn here| Straw bag: Vintage| Jeweled pumps: Kelley & Katie, worn here

It’s no secret, I cheer for ‘Team Stripes’ in every single way, all day, everyday! PSA: Diagonal, horizontal, whatever- I’m rocking stripes, and I don’t care whether or not it is deemed so called ‘flattering’ or not on my full figure frame…{insert appropriate emoticon}…

Yes Babes, I love stripes, and although a season change is upon us, I will continue to roll with stripes, in varied colors and in the classic form of black & white :) When ELVI reached out to me to try a few pieces from their AW collection, I was so happy! And wouldn't you know, I saw stripes? LOL!

ELVI says that they: 'design clothes that flatter and enhance the fuller figure - not hide it. At the heart of elvi, our core philosophy is to create statement contemporary fashion that is attractive, accessible and affordable to all women ranging from sizes 14-26. with our focus being on providing exceptional quality, expert tailoring and all-around personal customer experience every time you shop with us.'  Sounds great right?! I thought so too!

To be completely honest, there were a number of standout pieces in this AW collection! I selected 3, all of which will be making appearances here on le blog in the near future- but it would have been easy to select 10 or more... Additionally, ELVI just launched a new collection with Hayley Hasselhoff, it is dreamy!

Now this striped shirt dress is very well made (always a concern I have when trying out new designs), and is totally Fall ready with a color combination of beige, black, and maroon. It has side slits, is light weight, and comes with its own belt. The ease and flow of it is marvelous, I enjoyed wearing it out and about. 

Tip: Size up for added drape & flow, the fabric is very lightweight- you might add a top underneath, rock it with your favorite skinnies, or a tube skirt and open toe booties!

Until next time,

XO
