Hello Southernistas and happy Monday! Here in North Carolina we are enjoying the snow we got this weekend I hope you are staying safe and warm if you are in one the states that got snow this weekend. If you didn’t get snow I’ll be glad to send you what we got:).
So this weekend was my department’s Christmas Party and it is something I look forward to every year in large part because I get to go all out and glam it up and this year was no exception. The first year I went I wore a dress that I had worn to an event honoring my Pastor and I remember all the compliments I received but I also remember how uncomfortable I was receiving the compliments and I was not confident in the dress but that was four years ago and a LOT has changed. I am more confident and I have made peace with myself, my past, and I am in a place of accepting the me that I am now. This year as last year I have Eloquii to thank for my glam look. Before I continue let me state that this post is not sponsored by Eloquii (Eloquii if you see this I’m open to a sponsoring a post) I am just a super fan nay I may say addict of Eloquii. This is a company that gets it when it comes to plus size fashion and if I was wealthy Eloquii would have a large part my wealth. They have done several collaborations and their most recent collaboration is with designer Jason Wu (yes that Jason Wu) and they are still collaborating with Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James brand and I hope it doesn’t end.
So as I was saying before I started rambling I owe my fierce holiday glam look to Eloquii again. I had originally planned to purchase my dress from another company but I went to Eloquii’s website to see their holiday collection and as soon as I saw their holiday collection all thoughts of purchasing my dress anywhere else left my mind. Every year their holiday collection is so beautiful and over the top and this year was no exception! I can honestly say no other company does holiday glam like Eloquii does holiday glam! As soon as I saw this black strapless sequin dress I knew I would be wearing that to the Christmas party. My style is classic and modest so I wore this beautiful mock neck lace shirt I bought from Ashley Stewart this weekend along with several pieces of jewelry. I wore a pearl necklace also purchased from Ashley Stewart and these cute Nine West black pumps. I wore my faux fur to complete the look. When I got to the Christmas party I got nothing but compliments all night.
Enjoy some pictures of the Christmas Party!
Until next Southernistas! Be Bold, Be Confident, Be Beautiful!
