How We #XOQ: Jason Wu x ELOQUII edition

As you know, we love sharing our customers and friends’ amazing #XOQs in our different styles. And of course our new Jason Wu x ELOQUII holiday collection is no exception. We asked two of our friends, Thamarr from Musings of a Curvy Lady, and Emily of Fashion Foie Gras to wear some pieces from the collection and caught up with them to hear about their experience. Read on!


THE ELQ&A: Thamarr

What are the three words you’d use to describe your Jason Wu x ELOQUII pieces?
Timeless • Feminine • Sexy

How do you feel in the styles?
I feel all of the above.  But also wearing these pieces makes me feel confident and beautiful. It means so much to me to have a designer create works of art with my body type in mind.  It makes me feel that I matter in the fashion world.

What is your favorite element of each style?
I'm a girly girl and a bonafide Francophile so I love all of the tulle of the Point D'espirt dress.  The tulle is lush and the little tine polka dots are darling and beautiful nod to the French name of the piece.

The Sequin Wrap Gown is just flat out stunning.  I love that the sequins don't catch on to anything -- don't want to lose a single one of them! The sexy peekaboo slit is perfect.  It exposes just enough leg without being too much and will make it easy to dance the night away. 

How do you recommend styling the different pieces? How did you style yours?
One of my favorite things to add to a special occasion look to give it a little edge is a moto jacket.  It would look so great with the Point D'espirit Dress.  The juxtaposition of the tulle and leather is perfect.  If you're not into leather add a cardigan and a belt for an exaggerated fit and flare look. 

I would add a freshly pressed white man's shirt to the Sequin Wrap Dress.  Just button up a few and tie the ends in a bow and pair with Abba Kitten Booties for an elevated casually chic look. 

I styled my pieces very simply by adding a bold red lip, loose soft curls, simple jewelry and black sparkly pumps.  The dresses are so beautiful I wanted them to be the main attraction.  

     

Where would you (or are you) wearing your Jason Wu x ELOQUII styles this season? 
I'm plan on wearing the Sequin Gown to a Murder Mystery Dinner Party.  That dress is definitely a character.  I also have a winter wedding to attend the the Point D'espirit dress will be perfect for that. 

 What are you grateful for this year?
I'm grateful for so much but definitely my health and family.  I am also grateful to my friends that are like family and for Netflix.  Oh and definitely grateful for cheese and wine nights with my Lady Gang.   We have the best conversations over glasses of rosé and a good charcuterie board.  

 


THE ELQ&A: Emily

What are the three words you’d use to describe your Jason Wu x ELOQUII pieces? 
Elegant, sophisticated and timeless.

How do you feel in the styles? 
Each one of the pieces makes me confident, empowered and ready to take on anything the night may throw my way.

What is your favorite element of each style? 
I absolutely love the fit. Each and every piece is cut to flatter and showcase curves in the most glamorous way possible.

How do you recommend styling the different pieces? How did you style yours? 
My favourite piece from the entire collection is the tuxedo suit! It can be styled a thousand different ways, even with trainers and a t-shirt for a dressed down look!

Where would you (or are you) wearing your Jason Wu x ELOQUII styles this season? 
I'll be wearing the sequin one shoulder dress for the awards season coming up and the tuxedo is going to make endless holiday season appearances. 

What are you most excited for this holiday season? 
New Year's Eve! I'm ready for a fresh start in 2019.


What are you grateful for this year? 
I'm going to go basic here and say that I find myself really trying to be grateful for the little things at the moment. Rather than looking at the bigger picture, I've found taking time to say thanks for all the little things makes one so much more appreciative of everything I have in life. As cheesy as that may sound!
