Eliza J. New York

It is no secret that I love dresses, I mean I have an entire walk in closet bursting at the seams full of them. I am and have always been loyal to my “brands”, and when I was on the hunt for a particular dress I assumed it would be from one of my favorites.

So let’s back track a bit…. A few months ago I was out with some friends when I saw this girl in the most darling dress. I had to know where it was from, so I asked. She told me Nordstrom; which was helpful but, seriously Nordstrom is a department store so I would assume they have more than five dresses. Well that night I got online and searched the entire site, I found the dress and it was on sale. Since it was around midnight I decided to go to sleep and order it in the morning, clearly a decision I would regret come 9:00 am when my size was sold out.

The dress was still on my mind by midafternoon, and I remembered I had come across a similar one at Dillards a week earlier. So I headed to my closest Dillards and the similar dress was still there. I was so excited, plus this one was on sale for a better deal and had the cutest yellow band on the hem. This would be what sparked my love for the brand Eliza J. Their dresses are so timeless and tasteful, with the perfect Fit and just the right amount of flare. And POCKETS..I love dresses with pockets! I tend to gravitate towards a fit and flare style. I love how they give you a small waist and hide the area that you don’t want people to see (and you don’t have to suck it in).


After finding this Dress I styled it for a nautical look, and if that wasn’t enough Eliza J. reposted my instagram photo to their own instagram and twitter feeds. I felt so honored, even Purdy had her 10 min of fame since she photo bombed me! After the love affair with that dress I was on the hunt for more, to date I think that I have 15 of their dresses! Now if you are like me and can’t quite afford 15 dresses at over 100.00 a piece you are in LUCK! You still have time to snag some from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I have found a few of them on Ebay, Amazon, Dillards, Neiman Marcus Last Call, and Nordstrom Rack for a fraction of the price. The quality is absolutely amazing and I recommend them to anyone looking for a special dress that will be sure to draw a compliment. Check out their website here to see their current line!

Here is one of my recent purchases from Nordstrom rack and how I styled it.
