I'm in the market for a new dress that's versatile and contemporary, something I can wear to a number of social functions, that would carry me through the spring and maybe longer. The first I heard of this website, Elloquii was on "The Today Show" and I immediately visited the site and found it was by "The Limited". I browsed around and found several dresses that were appealing and attractive for my needs. I saw the headline on the site that said "From chic office silhouettes to evening standouts, our plus size dress collection delivers head turning style." And I was hooked!
First off, I was searching for a classic, simple and elegant dress that would go from morning to night with a minimum of effort. Maybe a bolero, jacket or a dressy cardigan sweater, jewelry and pumps or sandals would change the look that would be ideal for work or dinner. A transitional dress in a neutral color or maybe a black/white print - I wasn't quite sure but when I see it - I'll be in heaven! The site offered exactly what I was looking for and they called it "Desk to Dinner". It was great! The range of sizes, colors, fabrics and silhouettes in a-line, sheaths, shifts and strapless by body types were more than I could ask for. I really liked the variety of these lovely plus size dresses for all occasions - business to cocktails to weddings.
There were two I was especially fond of that would be perfect for my needs. One was a black/white printed sheath in a silky fabric with a cap sleeve. A dress that could go from the office to cocktails or a special dinner. The other also, printed but striped with a boat neck and long sleeves. Problem was, I really liked them both - so comfortable, flattering and modern with an easy lightweight feel and fit. I also saw several others that were so pretty and feminine and I'm planning to pick them also. I was so happy to have found these updated dresses for any social affairs.
Draped Print Sheath Dress
The silky fabric, draped neck and graphic print make this the perfect office to evening sheath dress. Belt up for added punch. Fitted. Cap sleeve. Draped neckline. Falls to above the knee. Invisible back zip. 100% polyester. Machine wash.

I happened to watch the Today Show recently and they had a segment on plus size clothing. Some of the stores I had never heard before so I was intrigued and began to visit some of the featured sites. One website that caught my interest was called madisonplus.com. Here, I browsed the site and found a beautiful selection of plus sized dresses - ranging from bridal dresses to cocktail dresses, proms, mother of the bride, casual wear, business and that's just for starters! I had a wonderful time searching the site for a cocktail party dress I was attending. Some of the prices were very reasonable and the quality and construction looked quite nice too. I loved the variety of fabrics, styles and colors that were available for any occasion - day or night.
Since I was looking for a cocktail dress, I saw several that would be an answer to my prayers. I was set on a black dress since black is always flattering for a striking silhouette, nevermind it can go anywhere and everywhere. Believe me, I was not disappointed. Some styles included sheaths, retros, lace, v-necks, ruffles, sleeves, cap sleeves, prints, jacket dresses, one shoulder and everything in between! I had so much fun browsing that I had to get back to my original purpose.
Two dresses in particular caught my eye. One was a stretch knit by Kiyonna with a lace overlay that fit like a glove, a satin sash and sleeves, a scalloped neckline and a black or purple lining. I liked the skirt with a little flair and swing that was comfortable and easy to wear. Classy and timeless this vintage number was a winner with a little sex appeal as a bonus! The length was perfect not too short or too long. This was definitely on my to buy list. The other was a sheath, cap sleeves and a ruffled neckline from Xscape, that was very flattering in a taffeta fabric. This dress also came in colors of red and pewter, so that was also an option. I loved them both and could not make up my mind. Both, smart and sophisticated, black, flattering, tasteful and I could probably wear them time and time again. What's a girl to do? Buy them both!
