patterned sheath dress of the eva longoria collection

Dear friends! For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope that you all had a relaxing and fun turkey day filled with laughter and good food. I loved spending time with friends and enjoying some outstanding, all American dishes. I still cannot decide whether I loved the honey-baked ham or the turkey with cranberry sauce more. Creamed corn, stuffing with saudsage and sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top are all “exotic” dishes to me, so I particularly enjoyed this Thursday. Hubby and I decided to do a little bit of additional decorating for Christmas which required for us to stop by the local Walmart store on Black Friday Eve. That’s pretty much as close as I will ever get to Black Friday. I am the cozy-up-on-the-couch-in-pjs online shopper; below I listed a few online deals that are worth checking out this weekend.

In my latest post HERE I reviewed a stunning red ruffled dress designed by Eva Longoria and today I am back with another sheath dress from her collection.

Here are my pros: I absolutely love the design. It may seem simple, but classic cut dresses like this are superb. They can be worn time and time again, they are elegant and ladylike. I find the boatneck cut very flattering. The length of the sleeves is just perfect, especially if you are not someone who likes to show off her arms. The bottom portion has a pencil skirt design, which makes this dress curve hugging (with all its pros and cons). The fabric is beautiful: it is comfortable, breathable and stretches nicely giving you all the comfort you need for all day wear.

I don’t particularly care about the plaid pattern. It adds some busy feel to the full look, hence I recommend to keep the accessories to a minimum. The fabric could be a tad bit thicker. This fabric is great for spring, summer and mild autumn days, but needs layering in the colder months.

I couldn’t find the dress online any more, but you may see it at your local The Limited store. I linked a couple similar ones (under $70).
