Liz Black's point of view is as strong as her signature red hair. Her blog, P.S. It’s Fashion, is a celebration of her personal style and her work on Refinery29 showcases the best in plus size fashion. Obviously we had to get the scoop on her favorite trends for fall, what she’s wearing now, and every one of her favorite styles on site. Her selection is all about the details - cropped, asymmetry, zippers, textures and knits - which is our favorite part of getting dressed in the cooler months.
We’re not shy about professing our love for Orange Is The New Black, so when one of the stars wears us on a red carpet, we get really, really, REALLY excited.
Imagine us full-on fangirling when we saw photos of Adrienne C. Moore, also known as Black Cindy, on the red carpet in our (now sold out) Black Lace Crop Top. We told you crop tops could be a serious wardrobe staple!

When you leave the office and it’s already dark, it’s easy to feel a little gloomy. Even though we’re welcoming fall with open arms (hello, moto), we’re not ready to let go of some of our favorite parts of spring dressing, namely florals. To bring them along into fall, we’ve focused on roses with deepened hues (think forest greens, blacks, and violets) that pair beautifully with leather. It’s good girl gone bad, but in the very best way.
If you’re feeling ultra rebellious, mix floral prints with tartan pieces, like an underground high society punk. Plus to help you layer, get up to 40% off with code STOCKUP. Add a sweep of black eyeliner for dramatic effect, and you’ve aced this fall’s trends. Ready for winter?
Midi, midi, midi, can’t you see? Sometimes your pleats just hypnotize me.
Since the overwhelming success of our Citron MIdi Skirt, we knew that we had to step up our midi game. Black lace? Absolutely. Tartan? For sure. And because we like to keep things interesting, we’re thrilled to introduce our new Laser Cut Midi Skirt.
The scuba fabric helps to add even more volume, the precise cutouts give it a modern update, and our four exciting new colors can be wardrobe workhorses all year round.

If you follow plus size fashion at all, you’ve gotta know Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman and Jeniese from The Je ne sais quoi. Even though they’re hundreds of miles apart - Georgette is in Pensylvania and Jeniese is in Alabama - you’d think they were best friends living on the same block. Their enthusiasm is infectious on their blogs, Instagram, and Twitter, and we just had to find out where that passion comes from. Introducing our new interview feature, A Conversation On Style, where we select two amazing customers and ask them to chat with one another on style. Here’s what Jeiese and Georgette had to say!
When did you embrace your style?
Georgette: I didn’t start embracing my style until I was 40. That is when I realized plus size women could be chic, polished and well put together. I also began experimenting with colors, styles and different clothing shapes that I had stayed away from.
Jeniese: When I was 12 my mom had my clothes made to make sure I had the same clothes as everyone else. Since then Ive always pushed the envelope with my personal style. I remember at that age wearing leggings, baby doll dresses and floral crowns because I wanted to be a hippie! In college, I went through a “fashion repression” due to lack of clothing options but I broke out of it in my late 20s.
Who brought you out of your shell?
Georgette: I accidentally discovered plus size blogger, Gabi Fresh, in a Glamour magazine and that is when I started to come out of my shell. Up until then I followed the usual “style” expert advice and stuck to all of the constrictive rules that they put out for plus size women. After I discovered the plus size blogging community I was open to new ideas and style.
Jeniese: I give credit to my mom because she never let me get in the shell to begin with. My mom never discouraged me from expressing myself through fashion. She is very fashionable and she instilled a love of fashion in me.
Do you feel like you have a signature style?
Georgette: I have accepted that I am a skirt person. I love them! I also love a great separate. I like a simple chic style.
Jeniese: Girly, chic…I like a little bit of edge with some classic thrown in. I really love fashion!
Are there styles you won’t wear?
Georgette: Harem pants are not my friends. I don’t like anything that bunches up around my ankles. There are some things that just don’t work for me and I understand that.
Jeniese: I will not wear frumpy clothing. Frumpy means ill fitting to me. Khaki pants are an example of that. I’m not a fan of the frumpy look.
What about colors you won’t wear?
Georgette: I am not a fan of beige or neutral looks on me. Not unless it’s my shoes.
Jeniese: I will not wear light purples (ex. lavender, lilac) because I just don’t like it on me. I feel like they bring out the worst part of my skin.
How does something catch your eye when you’re shopping?
Georgette: An item has to be unique to catch my eye. In such a concentrated market like the plus size market I like things that are different. Like when I saw the wine faux leather ELOQUII skirt, I thought that’s different! And it’s in a great color. It’s really hard to find that type of uniqueness.
Jeniese: Uniqueness…I don’t want to look like everyone else. I want my clothes to fit and feel right on me.
Biggest style compliment?
Georgette: When someone can recognize my style and pick out a look or item that is so me. It symbolizes that I am staying true to my style and not trying a bunch of trends. That is a really big compliment to me.
Jeniese: When people can recognize my style is a compliment. Once I went I went to dinner with friends and one of my friends had just had gastric bypass. Someone at the table mentioned my blog and she said “If I had seen your blog before I had surgery, I would’ve never had surgery” That blew me away!

You didn’t think we’d let fall arrive and not let out a Rebel Yell, did you? Maybe it’s the chunky knits or leather on leather, but the cooler temps bring out our rebellious side. A mix of graphic prints, buffalo plaid, and zipper details turn up the volume (ha - get it?) on fall’s classic layers.
So toughen up (stylistically speaking, of course), buttercup. We’ve got a cold few months to get through before we’re back to pastel midi skirts in the warm sunshine, so we might as well make them as beautiful as possible.
Although we’ve added a lot of new arrivals to the site this week, nothing is as close to our hearts as the Courtney Blouse. Named after one of our designers, this versatile piece is a guaranteed staple no matter your style. Since its release, it has dominated our Going Fast list, so we knew we had to share what makes this blouse and its inspiration so special. Meet our designer, Courtney!
Name: Courtney Costello
Title: Designer at ELOQUII (since relaunch!)
How did this top come to be named after you?
What was the design process like?
We know our customer was looking for an easy versatile blouse to layer under jackets in fall. We sold a similar blouse in the spring and customers loved it so this was our update with new details and a new fabrication for fall.
How would will you style the Courtney?
The great thing about this blouse is that is can be worn with anything! You can dress it up with skirts or dress pants and a blazer or dress it down for a more casual chic look with jeans or leggings. It really is such a versatile piece! I am going to try the Merlot in the Courtney Blouse the next time I wear the Classic Cheetah Scuba Skater Skirt or the Classic Cheetah Printed Kady Pants for a rich fall look.
What’s the best thing about having a style named after you?
It makes me really happy that the blouse is selling so well. I hope the name had something to do with it!
What’s on your fall wishlist?
Outerwear, outerwear, outerwear! We have some AMAZING pieces coming up and I can’t wait to start warming up when it cools down!

Because the title of our latest collection is called The Beat Goes On, we can’t help but use it as an excuse to listen to Britney Spears’ first album. But in reality, we know that The Beat Goes On is a reference to the change of seasons and how, no matter how hard we try, we can’t stop the (
Last week, we shared tips on how to achieve fall-perfect neutral dressing. The Beat Goes On takes the look one step further, infusing autumnal florals, faux leather details, cutouts, and zipper elements. She’s Neutral Territory's older sister with a bit of an edge (and way more eyeliner).
