So I was delighted to receive this black dress from the clothing designer Eva Trends. I appreciate Eva Trends’s choice to work with natural fabrics like cotton and silk, and to size all their pieces for a range of women’s shapes. They offer elegant neutrals, like my black cotton dress, and gorgeous colorful prints as well. It’s not clothing you’ll find at the Mall; Eva Trends’s pieces will inspire you to experiment and to feel free and funky.
The Ribbon Hem dress calls for some non-traditional accessories, like my steampunk cuff and colorful ankle socks. I wore two long pendants (thrifted ages ago) because they capture the rich hippie look.

Patti, I absolutely adore the loose fitting easy silhouettes of EvaTrends pieces. They offer so many unique items. I now have 6 EvaTrends pieces and I love them all! Actually, I had styled an EvaTrends dress for that blog post in the spring that was inspired by you and your floral Doc Martens. I am loving this black dress on you…it definitely represents your style perfectly! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

You’ve really punked up this fabulous dress, Patti. You are a master of the sock/shoe combo, like your royal wedding attire. Love your description, rich hippie. Hahaha. Thanks for hosting. Sorry not sorry I drank all the eggnog. Heh. Merry Christmas!!
Thank you, fabulous Mel. Your vid is the best, many awards should be headed your way! Merry Christmas and all that, xox.
Wow Patti, you are endlessly cool in that ensemble. Sox with sandals are always the way to go.
You are my sock inspiration, Pao!! Merry Christmas to you and sending joy your way, xox.
I like the texture on this dress and that they work in natural fabrics. The side ribbon hem detail is cool too.
Who knew you could make socks and sandals look so cool?
Thanks Suzanne! I was inspired by Pao (see above) to try the sock/sandal thing. Merry Christmas to you and all those you love, xox.
I wore a party dress that surrendered the waist, and it felt great! I focused on the accessories and shoes instead. I love the seaming of the fabric, and the interesting cut of this dress on you.
A very Merry Christmas to you and Sandy, my dear!
Thank you dear Sheila, and Merry Merry Christmas to you and L. and V.!! xox
