Shine bright like a diamond

One of my favorite U.K. brands Elvi reached out to me last month about their fall collection. I saw so many beautiful pieces I immediately had to have, this sequin dress being one of them. The color is so unique and not one I wear much— come to think of it, I’m not sure I have anything green in my closet! I’m all for sequins in the day or night, and this dress has so many possibilities!

The day I decided to shoot this look it was about 35 degrees (probably evident from the goosebumps on my legs😂), so I was trying different ways to style this— with a moto jacket, a long coat— all good choices but I decided to keep it simple by braving the cold and shooting it sans accessories. Ok so I added some sequin socks to add even more sparkle to this look. Go big sparkle or go home!

A word about sizing: I ended up sizing up in this dress to get more of a shift look. I’m thinking about layering this sequin mini in the future with a mesh top so I wanted to make sure I had room to do so. If you’re in between sizing I would consider sizing up as well.

As for Elvi, I’ve had a few people complain about the cost of shipping. I’m not going to lie, it’s not cheap. But A, it’s 3 day rush shipping, and comes in the most beautiful packaging. Not to mention the quality is so good. But if you’re still not convinced, you can buy Elvi at Nordstrom! They carry almost every piece of Elvi’s collection including this dress, and with free shipping and free returns, there’s no excuse! Get on over to Nordstrom and get your life in this dress!

    Glad to see that they reached out to an African-American blogger! I’d been lookin for some posts about Elvi but hadn’t seen any sponsored ones by any bloggers of color. Their clothes are gorgeous but needed the fit info. Love the hair! And THIS color on you!
