Let the multitude of sparkle-filled gatherings begin, as the holiday season is here. I am a firm believer that every girl should have a closet full of sequins. If you’re planning on going all out for your Christmas and New Year’s Eve outings, I’ve gathered 15 fabulous dresses that will set you apart from the rest.
But first, can we talk about Eloquii’s Noir Capsule Collection and the beautiful Jolie Dress. When Eloquii told me about the collection, I couldn’t wait to see what the design team would slay us with. My mouth flew open when I saw the dress. The black wrapping (sorry gifts for not filming the unboxing) was so luxe and fancy. The dress was absolutely exquisite. The sequin detailing and the sparkle are amazing. A black satin ribbon serves as a bow at the neckline giving the dress a prim and proper feel. It looks like a lot of time and expensive resources when into bringing Jolie to life. The $300 price tag is understandable.
My excitement for Jolie waned when I put her on. She was too tight. I wear a size 16 in Eloquii, I should have gone up a size, maybe even two, as Jolie is cut pretty small. The sleeves were so tight I could barely move my arms. Granted, I have large arms, but the fit of the dress made them feel abnormally so. The dress is also fully lined. Plus size women and lining are like oil and water — it’s complicated. The slim, body con cut did nothing for my shape. My curves look diminished and my body appears boxy. Jolie would fit so much better if it had some stretch.
In the end, beautiful dress. Jolie is gorgeous. She just isn’t one of the best items I’ve gotten from Eloquii. And that’s rare! There are some other pieces I’d like to try from the NOIR Collection like the Tuileries Dress and the Belle Taches Dress. Those two are sexy as hell. Definitely check out the collection and tell me what you think. I am curious for feedback on this capsule.
Jolie wasn’t quite a winner for me, so here are some other amazing sequin dresses that I am excited about too! I would recommend everyone reading this buy at least one of these dresses for yourselves. They are affordable, some on sale (Yay! for extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales) and will make you the center of attention this holiday season.
Go forth and Sparkle & Shine, Girl!
