My 5th Blogiversary & an ELOQUII Giveaway

Wow!!! I can hardly believe it, but as of today, I have been blogging for five years!!!! It’s still amazing to me that anyone follows my blog at all, and I have to thank all of you so much for all your kinds words, support, and conversations over the years!
In celebration of my 5th blogiversary, I have partnered with ELOQUII to give away a $200 gift credit!  Leave a comment below and let me know what you would get if you’re the lucky winner.  Then, check out the other ways to win – for example, you can tweet about the giveaway daily to increase your odds!
If you follow my blog regularly, then you know what a fan I am of ELOQUII, and today, I’m wearing a look from my favorite brand.  And as I previously mentioned on the blog, I’m obsessed with white dresses lately.  I just love the 3D floral effect of this one.  Plus, the adjustable shoulder ties are really cute.

I didn’t want to interfere with the hem on the dress, so rather than having the dress hemmed, I decided to have the lining hemmed to create a lighter, more airy (and leggy) effect.
My favorite looks are those that feel balanced, a mix of soft and hard.  So, to balance the airy feminine dress, I added a black moto jacket.

I decided a while back that in celebration of my blogiversary I really wanted a custom jacket branded with my logo. Since I love moto jackets and they’re a signature piece in my wardrobe, I decided this ELOQUII moto jacket was the perfect piece to customize.
Because the material is faux leather, painting or screenprinting the jacket weren’t really options. The paint would flake too easily; the screenprinting process could melt the jacket.

So, I decided to go with the option of having the jacket embroidered. I went with embroidery in a pastel, peachy pink to match my blog logo – millenial pink before millenial pink was a thing.  LOL
I am excited to have a one-of-a-kind piece that I”m sure to wear for years to come!

And then came these heels!!!  I have small but wide feet.  About six months ago, I discovered that ASOS has wide fit shoes that start at a US size 4.  This revelation has been LIFE CHANGING!  I never considered myself a shoe person before because I always had a difficult time finding shoes that I loved in my size.  Now, I seem to be having the opposite problem! This velvet/chrome combo is just so fun.
The weather was so amazing while taking these pictures that it really has me longing hard for fall!  It was cool and breezy outside, a perfect weather combination.  It has been so hot and humid here in the St. Louis area, but the weather this weekend was simply gorgeous.  And being able to wear a moto jacket for a while is making me super eager to start bringing my favorite jackets back into regular rotation!

What are you eager to wear when the weather cools?  What would you like to see from Style Cassentials in the next five years?
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway below!

  2. Cassandra, allow me to congratulate you on five years of this fine blog. I have long admired your style ever since you first found my own blog (which celebrated its own 5-year anniversary earlier this month). I am appreciative of you and your continued support. You do a fabulous job with your content. Even if I didn’t agree with outfits or certain elements of outfits, I have still maintained the utmost of respect to you and your material. I can only wish you bigger and better in the future.

    And wow- wonderful outfit! I love the dress and the sandals. Cool motorcycle jacket also. Truly fabulous all around here! I know a girl celebrates her birthday stylishly, but so do anniversaries! I wish you continued success in the future.

  3. What a killer outfit! I’m a huge fan of the ful-flarel Eloquii skirts and dresses. I’ve been coveting the asymmetrical flounce skirt for a while, so that’s have to be my pick!

    Congrats on 5 years!

  8. Congratulations, Cassie on this wonderful milestone. I have so enjoyed your blog and dialogue over the years. Your blog has helped me with my own style and acceptance of my body. I would love to win this prize as I am rebuilding my wardrobe due to some weight loss. I think my perfect reveal dress would be Faux Fitted Wrap Dress in white. #1 because it’s outside of my comfort zone and #2 I’m proud of my figure.

  14. Congrats!! And thank you so much for this amazing contest!
    I love that you hemmed the lining of this white dress, it’s such a beautiful detail and it really makes a difference. The moly jacket is a nice edge. I miss being able to wear my leather jacket.. it’s hot and humid here in Canada right now.
    But autumn will come soon enough, and I’ve been craving a comfy and stylish pair of pants from Eloquii lately. The cinched ankle in camo is calling my name! 🙂

  20. Congrats on 5 years dear! I love ELOQUII’s clothing but have only had the opportunity to buy from them once, and only shopped their clearance. I absolutely LOVE all of their dresses and would probably cry if I got the opportunity to buy a couple! I have lots of interviews for jobs in the fall and it would be lovely to add some dresses that go well with a blazer so I can go into interviews confident and ready to crush it. I also have always wanted to try a jumpsuit, and theirs are so cute! Thank you so much for this opportunity, and keep killing it and being amazing!
