coveting | Eloquii

For 2015, I want to step up my style game.

I really want to hone it and find a focus.  I have always been a bit all over the map, I self confess to being a chameleon, but I really think it’s time to mature my style and wear the things I really love.

I think I did a good job last year, but I want to keep pushing.

For a long time, I was too scared to wear what I craved and opted for safe, fat girl style.  Now, there is nothing wrong with that, it’s just through blogging, I have really found my confidence and I feel like all those things that I would admire from afar and wish I had the guts, gumption and events to wear things to are not so far fetched and not so intimidating anymore.

Which leads me to today’s post.

I’ve heard spades on how excellent Eloquii is and I briefly popped over to the site when they were fresh up.  I had a peek around, found some lovely items, and for some reason, hadn’t returned.

It’s probably because I feel so comfortable with shopping my go to’s {ASOS & forever21}.   But 2014 was so full of new brands launching and myself discovering new designers, shops and brands that it seems completely wrong to keep shopping just the same old stand by’s {even though I’ve racked up massive wishlists on them both recently}.  I really want to expand my horizons, experiment and support new brands as well as some indie designers.

I decided to pop on over to Eloquii and HOLY SHIZZBALLS I fell in love with sooo many items!!

As I said, I want to focus my style a bit more, and part of that is I want to master the art of monochrome layering.  I am a massive fan of Stephanie from Faiiint and she is an all black, head to toe, layering grandmaster!

I know the key to making a full, head to toe, all black or monochrome outfit a success and not just drab is textures and that is what I am after this year.

Eloquii has the tools I need!

I adore the limited palette of items I picked out, everything in black, white or grey.  Some may see this as drab, but I see possibility! You can always throw in one colour and it gives a mighty loud pop to any look.

But I don’t think a pop of colour will be all that necessary as the textures are so perfect.  Laser cut, metallics, fringe, draping,  knits, faux leather, the right mix of these and it will have a hefty impact!

Some of these items are true statement pieces, while others are beautifully rethought basics, which make them look ultra posh.

Eloquii’s price point is higher than I normally spend, but I also look at these as more investment pieces and not throw away fashion.  I truly think I could get a few years worth of wear out of these pieces and not just a couple of seasons.

But they are not without there deals and steals as well! Their sale section is stocked with drastically reduced items, {a few of them are in this list} and they currently have a promo going where if you buy three items, on sale or not, they are giving 50% off!!

I have not had much of a budget for shopping since I left the tattoo shop, but I’m really hoping I can manage to pick up a few items with that 50% off promo soon!

{Edit: some items have sold out already and the links are dead!}

Have you shopped with Eloquii yet?  Or are there any pieces you’re feeling here or on the site?  Let me know!

  1. I haven’t bought anything from Eloquii yet (mostly because it’s so expensive, partly also because a lot of the things I like are different from what I usually wear, which means it’s hard to tell if they would fit without trying them on in person), but I love a lot of their items, and I love the wide range of textures and shapes that they carry.

    I’m particularly obsessed with the Studio Drama Peplum Jacket in purple, the Double Zipper Drape Jacket in pale pink, and the Studio Cage Neck Sweater.

    Good luck getting something in the sale, and I look forward to seeing how you style it!

  2. Thankyou for the mention! ❤
    Yes, texture & layers are my secret weapon! There are so many beautiful pieces here, I love the lace back maxi dress & the faux leather/ponte skirt in particular! Oh, and the leggings & the caged sweater too. I wish these pieces were in my size, I'm jealous!
