It’s been a chilly winter here in the ATL. I’ve worn more sweaters this year than the last two winters combined. I guess it’s a good excuse to wear this adorable sweater dress though, right? I’m not a huge bell sleeve fan, but I can handle that they aren’t overly huge on this Eliza J dress. (Bummer it’s sold out, but this grey one is almost identical!) I like that the sleeves hit at my wrists instead of going any longer.
I’ve tried to wear these over-the-knee Vince Camuto Madolee boots as much as possible. They are actually comfortable, probably due to the lower heel and the chunkier width of the heel as well. I got these last summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale – yes, that long ago! – and now they are over $100 off of the retail price. If you have been eyeing these, I do recommend them. Just a few things to note: 1. My calf is about 15″ and these are a perfect fit. They get too tight if I try to wear skinnies with them, so I stick with leggings. 2. Size up. I always wear an 8.5, and a bunch of bloggers said to size up a half size and I’m so glad I listened. 3. These are the Foxy color, which look SO different on Nordstrom’s website. They look brown on the site and you can see they are more of a gray.
I stalked this Eliza J maxi dress last year. And I’m so glad I did…I got it on the Von Maur sales rack for a whopping $47! Virtually free, right?! I love maxi dresses, and this one checks off tons of my favorite things – belt, pleats, color, floral pattern, fun neckline. There are so many Eliza J dresses that I have on my wish list. They are just so feminine and girlie – just the perfect maxis. Let’s look at some of the great Eliza J options out right now (click on the picture for more details)…some of these are already on sale! If you have a baby shower, wedding, or any event where you want to look your best, her dresses are great!
Oh fit and flare…how I love thee…let me count the ways. This style of dress is by far my most favorite. It flatters almost every figure, and I love the way it fits my body type. I am always drawn to the navy and green combo; it’s been a favorite of mine for a long time. So when I saw this at Nordstrom’s big sale a few weeks ago, I knew I had to try it on. It ran small, so I had to order a size up. Of course they didn’t have the larger size, so I had to order it from another store. But, I love how Nordstrom will ship it to you for free!
Thought I would pair the dress with my absolute favorite brown sandals, which I may add that I have had for six years now. They go with so much! I remember my momma buying me these for my birthday one year. What a great present that has lasted so many seasons now! Gotta love great gifts like that 🙂
