Wearing a holiday party dress from Ever New

It’s Monday and the start of a new week! As you read this, I’m probably already on a plane to Mexico City, and I couldn’t be any more excited to get away! But before I switch gears into vacation mode, I want to take a minute to introduce you to one of my favourite international retailers: Ever New. I’m really happy to be an ambassador for Ever New and to help spread the word about this amazing clothing brand!

A Little Introduction to Ever New

If you’ve never heard of Ever New before, it’s a women’s clothing and accessories brand from Melbourne, Australia. It’s one of the fastest growing clothing brands out there. It was founded only in 2006 and is already sold in over 10 countries worldwide. It only came to Toronto 2 years ago and has one location – at the Eaton Centre.

I love Ever New because their clothes are exactly me: feminine and classic. The first time I shopped with Ever New, I knew I was going to be in trouble, and every time I go, I have a VERY hard time leaving with just one item.

The Juicy Details…

Because Ever New may be unfamiliar to you (or even if you do know it), I thought it would be helpful to summarize some of the ‘juicy details’ about shopping with this brand. These are the things I’d first want to know about when it comes to shopping online.

  • There are free returns to a store within 14 days. This is often times the key factor that will determine whether or not I purchase from a retailer’s website. If I can’t easily walk into a store and return something I’ve purchased online, then it’s usually a deal-breaker!
  • There are also free returns online within 14 days
  • Standard shipping is only $9.95 CAD and free for orders over $100
  • There is a price adjustment policy. Meaning, if you purchase a full priced item and it goes on sale within 14 days, you can receive a one-time store credit for the difference in price
  • You will want to pay close attention to the size guide. It’s important to note that Ever New’s sizes do run small and I had to go up a size

What I’m Wearing

Okay, so enough about the brand, and let’s talk about this outfit!

As you can see, I’ve already started my holiday shopping and I’m wearing a Carley Lace evening dress, which is part of their current collection, Belle de Soir. This dress is perfect for a Christmas or New Year’s Eve party (or if you just need to get dolled up for something, since it’s such a classic LBD!).

Wearing hair in a ponytail to show off high neckline and earrings

Because of the high neckline and because I wanted to show off these gorgeous gold earrings (also from Ever New), I wore my hair in a ponytail. I think my signature top knot could work too, which is how my hair was when I tried this on in the dressing room. Since I wanted to be festive for the holidays, I’ve paired with these nude, shimmery sandals and sequin clutch with tassel detail.

One More Thing to Mention about Ever New

I mean, I love all the clothes. But there are 2 things that Ever New does extremely well, in my opinion: dresses and coats. If you follow me on Instagram, by now, you surely will have seen me incessantly praise Ever New’s coats on my Instagram stories! My Ever New coat collection is now at 3 (and still growing). The jackets and coats are the first thing my eyes go to when I enter the store!

While I was in-store picking out my holiday dress, I snagged this Gabriella wrap coat. I was told by the salesperson that it’s actually Ever New’s best selling coat (which was enough justification for me to buy it, LOL!)! It’s made from a super soft wool blend, has a removable faux fur collar, and most importantly for me, is lined and extra warm. Since it’s such a classic black coat, I love that I can pretty much wear it with anything this winter! Here I styled it casually, but it’s suitable for wearing over dresses too. If you guys are in the market for a new winter coat, I’d strongly urge you to check Ever New’s website.
