Manic Monday: Couch Florals & Metallics

I was sick recently, and going back to work after a couple days off was still really rough.  I wanted to wear something that made me feel good even if my body was giving me challenges.
Enter this gorgeous and fun dress from ELOQUII!  Couch florals are a big trend for fall 2017, and it’s just so amazing to find a plus size retailer offering such fashion-forward pieces.  I mean…we aren’t even talking this season’s trends, but next season, and ELOQUII has them!  They are seriously the best!

Yes, dressing like your grandma’s couch is in style, and I am totally cool with that when the fabric and print is as gorgeous as this dress.  This dress has such an amazing shape, and the statement sleeves are such a nice touch!
The back of the dress is knit which helps the dress lay well since the jacquard fabric is fairly stiff. My only criticism of the dress is that it’s unlined.  Due to the fabric, the dress is a little itchy where the seams touch the skin around the waist and on the outer thigh.  A slip should solve the problem if your skin is a little sensitive.
That one minor criticism aside, this dress is pretty damn great, and while it didn’t make my body feel better, it was definitely a mood booster.  The muted colors of the dress are so pretty. I received compliments all day which is especially nice when you don’t feel well!

I wanted to bring out the shine, so I added silver metallic heels to bring out the silver stitching in the dress.
What do you think of the “couch floral” trend?  How would you style this dress?
