Enamored With Eliza J.

Eliza J Wisteria Skirt 

Cynthia:  I have been falling in love with a designer I know nothing about.

Marcy:  You’re so easy.

Cynthia:  Seriously, Marcy! Every time I see a cute dress or skirt lately, it just so happens to be designed by Eliza J. I bought that pretty pink skirt above from Anthropologie and when I looked at the label, guess what it said? Go on. Guess.

Marcy:  I couldn’t.

Cynthia:  C’mon. Guess.

Marcy:  No.

Cynthia:  Eliza J!

Marcy:  I would’ve never figured that out.

Cynthia:  Who is Eliza J? Why have I never heard of her before? Why can’t I seem to find any info about her on the Internet? This Eliza J… is … elusive.

Cynthia is dumbfounded.

Cynthia:  Her dresses are sweet and pretty but with just enough edge and sex appeal that they don’t feel like they belong exclusively at a southern bridal shower.

They just … make me smile!

Cynthia:  Sigh … I’m smitten. And the thing is… I think she loves me too.

Marcy has been researching Eliza J on the computer while Cynthia moons about.

Marcy:  Found her. She’s the house brand for Nordstroms and other such retailers.

Her website is ElizaJDresses.com and her motto is “Live In The Sunshine” and her hashtag is #feelpretty.

Cynthia:  Awwww… see.. I knew she loved me too. She “gets” me.

Marcy:  You’re fired from the Marcy Very Much research team.

    I love these dresses. They remind me of Anthro. And I love your assessment of them although I've never been to a southern bridal shower…

    I looked on the Nordstrom website and this dress http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/eliza-j-print-faille-mesh-midi-dress-with-sash/3973140?origin=keywordsearch-personalizedsort&contextualcategoryid=2375500&fashionColor=&resultback=6300
    reminded me a lot of the Lavendel dress.

      Oh I know which one you are talking about! I wonder if they used the same pattern? Or bought the fabric from the same distributer or pattern designer? I find all that stuff so interesting.

      Women in the southern US wear a lot of bright colors and florals. While it can be so pretty and joyful, if your eye isn't used to it – it can feel like a bit much. It's so funny how your clothing choices are influenced by where you live. I had a difficult time getting used to the dark clothing Los Angelenos wear after having lived in Florida for most of my life.

    Those are some really cute dresses ��

      Too cute. I want them all. Especially if they were all an inch or two longer. That is the only thing that is saving me from buying every single one.

    The pink skirt is very pretty. My favorite dress is the white popover.
    Good job on the research, Marcy.

    LOL…I love looking at her dresses in Nordie's too!

    I love that skirt, the color, 50's style, everything. It looks like this designer made the polka dot dress that you liked as well.
    It's so fun finding a designer that you click with. My collecting gene kicks in and I end up wanting more. I have to be firm about using the clothes, not just hoarding.
    Thanks for introducing us to Eliza J.

      It does look like the Lavendel dress. Same material I think.
      Now I just have to figure out more tops to wear with it and wear it all the time to justify the price.

    Awwww – She gets me too! I love her motto! And I'm only just learning about her now. I haven't tried on any of her pieces, but this is motivating me to get to my local Anthro. I can see myself wearing most of these pieces, especially the pink skirt you brought home. It's a beautiful fit on you, and it'll be so versatile. More than that, it's so bubbly and happy. As Anthro's stuff turns more and more billowing, boho, and sheer, I love seeing structured, ladylike pieces like this!

      I'm not crazy about the boho and sheer stuff too. Do you have a Nordstroms near you? That is wherer most of the Eliza J stuff is sold. Anthro only has two of her skirts at the moment.
      You would look fabulous in all of these dresses!
