ruffled dress of the eva longoria collection
If you are a regular at The Limited stores, you likely have come across the recently launched Eva Longoria collection. Being a lover of dresses, I had to take a look at some of those pieces and this red ruffled midi dress was one of the first ones that stood out.
I love the simple cut of this garment. It is classic and the skirt portion has a subtle bell design that makes the dress a flattering piece for curvy body types. The striking red hue is perfect for the holiday season plus it complements the clean design really well. I find the details on the shoulder different and interesting without taking away from the elegance of the full look. This dress transitions really well from your desk to your office holiday party. I think it is appropriate in a corporate environment paired with a blazer (or without it) and by just swapping out shoes and accessories, you can turn the same piece into an outstanding cocktail dress.
What I didn’t like about the dress was the fabric. I find it too thin for the season and there is too much polyester in it. These types of dresses need to be a lot more flexible and comfortable. The fabric has a subtle texture that I thought was interesting. The regular price point is at $139 which I find too high. I expect better fabric quality at that price. However, currently this dress is available at 60% off ($55.99), if you are interested in trying it on yourself.
Let me know what you think!
