Currently Craving: Eva Mendes for New York and Company
You know it's officially fall with cooler temps and the leaves changing but another thing that gives it away is a new collection from Eva Mendes at New York and Company. The store has been keeping the newest collection under wraps but it officially launched yesterday, September 17.
Eva has been keeping busy lately carrying Ryan's unborn child and all, but she still found time to design her latest collection for the store. People wondered if she would design maternity clothes given her state but instead she chose to stick with her classic line of dresses, skirts and feminine blouses.
I thought I would show you all my picks from this Fall collection- it's a good one!
First up is this beautiful rich burgandy dress. Confession, this already has hit my online shopping cart. This is the same style (Maria) as the black dress I wore last week. It's the same brocade and all- just a different color. I have worn the black dress by itself, with a sweater over, and with shirts under. It is a versatile style and will do great for me this fall! I especially like the way the waist goes in on this dress and creates a very slimming illusion.
Next on my list is also the midi floral skirt. This may or may not have also jumped into my online shopping cart. I first spotted this skirt in a People Style Watch magazine and immediately thought this skirt would be perfect for me. I love the way it has a nice waist and a good length. It is going to be easy to dres this skirt up or down and the floral is a beautiful pattern!
Who doesn't love a good secretary shirt? I love love love this design that Eva always has in her collections. It is so modest yet so alluring at the same time. Again with the florals too! I especially love this in this gray floral which would also probably look great under the burgundy dress! ( I should have thought of that earlier!)
I also love the Sia lace skirt from this collection. I think the design is beautiful and unique. I think it will be beautiful with black and elegant for a special occasion or maybe even just for a Tuesday.
Jewelry is something that is in every collection that Eva designs. There is usually a bold necklace of some sort, maybe a tassel necklace or some statement earrings. Eva also stepped it up this time and designed a couple of bags as well. Here are my picks for accessories:
There is a special today for free shipping with any Eva Mendes purchase. If you sign up for emails, you will also get coupons for deals almost daily. It's worth it to wait for the coupons if you like the collection since it is usually excluded from deals like buy one get one free or promos like that.
Will you be checking out this collection at all? I seriously love all of the dresses that she designs and think they are so figure-flattering. Tag me on Instagram if you make any purchases so I can see what you get!
Thanks for reading and following along with me!
