Eliza J Jersey & Print Crêpe de Chine Maxi Dress

Happy first day of summer everyone! If there is one motto I live by it is this: You can never be too over-dressed or over-educated. I am a firm believer in dressing up just for the hell of it. I urge each of you to take some time this week to treat yourself. Whether you decide to go shopping, get a massage or have a lazy night, make sure to make the most of this week.

Last month, I decided to treat myself to this Eliza J Jersey and Print Crepe Maxi Dress from my first Trunk Club. I had asked my stylist to send me the perfect maxi dress for summer. Boy, did she deliver! I love the fact that this dress is not heavy. What sold me on the idea of  purchasing this dress was the pattern and the pink fabric belt that came with it. The belt is in fact removable. 😀


In the beginning of June, I got my second Trunk Club in which I received a new denim jacket that is featured in the image below. It is petite friendly and is very comfortable. I am wearing it in a size small petite. I find that denim jackets are difficult to purchase because they can either be too bulky or feel heavy. This jacket, however, is surprisingly light. Denim jackets are a great investment because of their versatility.


I am wearing this dress in a size 4P. It should be noted that this dress is on the longer side. I did have to wear five-inch heels during this shoot. So keep this in mind before you purchase this dress that you may have to get it hemmed. Even though the dress is long, I do not have a difficult time walking in it with flats. I personally just get nervous dragging it on the ground (it’s just too darn pretty!). Nonetheless, this is a dress that is sure to make a statement. I certainly do not regret getting any these items!

    Hi, I’ve been looking at this dress for a long time and now that it’s sold out need to go with ebay or similar options. I was wondering about the size. I’m a usual 2P, but from the sizing chart would need a 0 for the chest area (but then the waist would be way way way too small) – how stretchy is it and does it run big, small or true to size? Thank you kindly
