Sheer layers and florals

It seems that fall has begun here in Winnipeg! Definitely a little sad about it as summer went by too fast!  The mornings are cool and then the afternoons are quite warm.  This is the time to start wearing layers.  At the beginning of fall my favorite layers to wear are very light ones.  This very sweet lace kimono (see it here) that I am wearing is absolutely perfect!  It really provides a nice amount of coverage and just the right amount of warmth for the cool mornings.  The longer length is my favorite and I can't resist the unique puff sleeves!  I have layered this kimono over a very dressy outfit in my photos but I can see this piece layered over just a simple t-shirt and a pair of jeans and look equally amazing!

 

What kind of layers do you like to wear at the start of fall?

Palm Leaf

I can't believe it's already the middle of August!  Summer has really gone by quickly and I don't want it to end yet!  I know the warm weather will come to an end soon so I must really enjoy what is left! 

 

I am sure you know my obsession with bold prints so when I saw this beautiful maxi dress I had to have it!  The palm leaf print is so gorgeous and perfect for summer.  I was a little worried that this maxi dress would be too long on my short frame but it works well and the skirt part falls to my ankles.  It seems like this dress is a great length that will work well for most heights, which is fantastic as that doesn't happen too often! 

 

There is one really neat feature on this dress that you will love!   At the back it has a small cut out part at the waist so just a peak of skin shows.  This works really well with the elastic waist at the back, which makes this dress super comfortable and quite unique.  Don't you just love a dress with little extra special details?!

Lemons and Lace

I absolutely have a thing for fruit prints!  I always gravitate towards them and wear them often, my closet is full of them!  I think I love fruit prints because they are always so bright and cheerful and I love the vintage vibe they have too! 

 

This lemon print midi skirt is really perfect for the summer weather and the really hot days.  It's made from the lightest cotton so it really keeps you cool while still looking fantastic!  This skirt has a lot of personality all by itself so instead of wearing a bold colored top I thought I would go with pairing it with the most sweetest white lace top.  Both of these pieces are really my go to choices this summer as they wear so well and they are so fun to mix and match with!

 

Do you love fruits prints too?

Custom Dress from Eshakti

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

I know you have probably heard of Eshakti before but honestly I can't get enough of their clothing.  I have even recommended Eshakti to my clients and they are just as impressed as I am.   

 

 

Let me just tell you a few words about Eshakti.  Eshakti is an online company that offers clothing that is completely customizable.  You just choose the design you like and decide what you would like to change or not change to make that piece perfect for you.  On the website you can even see what these changes would look like on the actual garment as you can click on the different options to change them, such as neckline, sleeve length, and length of the entire garment.  Also when you are ordering your piece of clothing you have the option of putting in your own exact measurements so the piece will fit you perfectly!  Just make sure you have a little help from someone to help take the harder measurements.

 

 

After you place your order it doesn't take much time at all to make your garment from scratch!  I think my dress came in the mail in about 2 weeks time.  I thought that was quite impressive as this dress was made for me and I am located in Canada.  The dress was shipped in a nice sturdy flat box.  Upon opening the box I immediately loved the dress!  The dress is made incredibly well.  I love all the beautiful extra details in the construction of the dress like the banded waist and the bodice darting.  Lots of thought and work went into making this dress!

 

 

The dress I chose is the Bird Embellished Stretch Poplin Dress in navy.  What an amazing dress!  The dress is made from 98% cotton and 2% spandex for comfort and less wrinkles.   The embroidery on this dress is really something special, so thick and so detailed.  They even embroidered a little bird on the back shoulder of the dress for something extra special.  I did change a few details of the dress to customize it to make it more flattering for me and more my style.  The dress design originally came with cap sleeves.  I am not a fan of that style of sleeve as I always feel it makes my arms look much bigger so I opted for an elbow sleeve.  I think an elbow length sleeve makes me feel a little more comfortable and it's still a wonderful sleeve length for summer.  For the neckline I opted for a wide v.  When looking through all of the necklines of the dress on the model I felt like that one would be the best for me.  I did end up keeping the length of the dress the same as I always like the below the knee length on myself.  This dress also comes with POCKETS!  I know so many of us love that feature even though we rarely use them for anything! LOL.

 

 

If you haven't already checked out Eshakti you really need to!  They really have something for everyone!  They offer dresses, tops, jackets, skirts, pants and denim.  I have to say I looked over those denim pieces and I think they are incredible!  I really do need to get a piece or two for myself!   The prices at Eshakti are really reasonable on everything!  I definitely would expect to pay way more for something custom made and of this exceptional quality!

 

 

Let me know if you have ordered from Eshakti before or if you are going to order!  I would love to hear all about it!

Classic Gingham

Wednesday, June 05, 2019

The gingham print always has such a retro feel to it and I love that.  Anything retro inspired usually catches my eye and this skirt was one of those pieces that I was very excited to wear.  This skirt has a lovely weight to it giving it shape but it's not too heavy to wear on a warm spring day.  I love the faux buttons on the front that add some nice detail and the skirt is high waisted so you can try so many different looks with it. 

 

You can never go wrong with black and white as it easily matches with everything!  I often go towards red accessories though as they really pop, especially my adorable mini backpack!  The beaded details and embroidery are really something special!  I have been really into backpacks lately and this one is perfect as it is pretty enough to wear with my more dressy pieces!

 

If you notice my shoes and love them as much as I do, well then you have to check in the kids section.  That's right, these adorable Kate Spade for Keds shoes are kids.  I noticed them right away on the website and was sad that they were kids but then I checked the reviews and lots of adults were saying they bought them for themselves so I gave them a try.  For reference I purchased a kids size 4 and they fit my size 6 feet perfectly!
