Wearing Eliza J Dresses to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

I was quite a lucky girl to be dressed by Eliza J for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this season. Eliza J is one of the top fashion companies and is currently sold at Macy's, Nordstrom, Carson's, Dillard’s, Von Maur and fine specialty stores. The whole experience from picking out the dresses to actually wearing them to Fashion Week was such a dream come true. A week before Fashion Week I was invited to visit Eliza J’s showroom which is nestled right in the heart of NYC’s fashion district. The moment I walked into the showroom I was completely blown away by all of the beautiful dresses. There was a rack of dresses already waiting for me to try on. It was a very hard decision to choose just a few but I ended up picking four lovely dresses. 

The first piece I chose was the above bell sleeved pink dress. I was completely in love with the sleeves! The dress reminded me of something Elizabeth Taylor would wear. It was such a sophisticated piece that I couldn't resist pairing it with white and black pearls. As fashion fate would have it the day I wore this dress I was gifted a matching flower head piece by That Madonna Girl. The flowers were just what I needed to complete my mod chic look. 

The second piece that I picked out was this beautiful print gown. What I loved most about this look was how perfectly it fit my body. I wore Jeffrey Campbell heels that matched the gold belt perfectly. I decided to keep the accessories to a minimum because the gown was such an attention grabber.

The third piece that I picked out was this stunning one shoulder coral dress from their Kate Middleton inspired "Royal Collection". I loved the bright coral color and the fact that it was inspired by royalty. I couldn't help feeling like a princess when I wore this dress! I paired it with simple back heels and a jeweled bracelet courtesy of Kensie. 

Finally, I saved the best for the last! The fourth and final piece that I picked out was the above black cape dress. I decided to pair the look with neon pumps by Aldo which luckily arrived just 10 minutes before I left for Fashion Week. I've never seen a dress like this before and the moment I put it on I knew this piece was very special. My feeling was right and it became one of the most photographed dresses that I've ever worn to Fashion Week. The second I walked into the courtyard at Lincoln Center the fashion paparazzi gathered to take my photo. This look definitely made me feel like a celebrity as there were at least 10 photographers taking my photo at once. 

David Geffin who was one of the photographer was nice enough to take the below picture of me being photographed. He also took this great photo of me and posted it on his Facebook fan page.  

Thank you so much Eliza J for making look like a million bucks this season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week! Check out their WebsiteFacebook and Twitter to see more of their lovely dresses.
