Custom Dress from Eshakti

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

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!

Finding the perfect spring or summer outfit can be difficult.  For me the best outfits look unique and are comfortable.  I know I have purchased things in the past that look great but are so uncomfortable and after just a few minutes of wearing it, I regret it! LOL.  Not this outfit!  This outfit from April Cornell is probably my favorite for this season!   It's both unique and incredibly comfortable.

This cotton top and cotton leggings I am wearing are so versatile as you can wear by themselves or as laying pieces.  I wore them together in my blog post just a few weeks ago in a completely different way.  The options are endless with the ways you can wear them!  One of my favorite things about them is they are both made from cotton.  This makes them so soft, breathable and great quality to wear and wash them over and over again!

See the leggings here:  Canada - click hereUSA - click here

 

 

Now lets talk about this amazing coverup piece! (See it here:  Canada - click hereUSA - click here) It is such a stand out piece and I can't wait to wear it all season long!   The top part is a lightweight soft printed fabric that buttons up and then below it is the most lovely soft pink lace that goes all the way down to your ankles.  The lace part is completely open so it flows so nicely when you walk or move.   I chose to layer leggings and a t-shirt underneath but you can layer a dress as well.  So many options.  You can also wear the whole piece open by not doing up the top buttons and wear it like an open vest.  That really looks gorgeous as well.   Another amazing things about this piece is it comes in sizes XXS and all the way to W2 Plus size!!  So anyone can get this gorgeous piece to wear this spring and summer and look fantastic!

Red Crochet

Spring fashion is always something that I am so happy to see!  Finally color is brought back!  That is why the minute I saw this red crochet dress from Chicwish I had to have it (click here to see it).  I often find that a lot of spring dresses are sleeveless and while I don't mind that style I don't often reach for that style in my closet.  I usually feel I need to put on something over the dress like a cardigan or a jacket to cover up or layer something underneath it.  This dress is something special having the elbow length unlined crochet sleeves.  Perfect for anyone who likes to cover up their arms like me!  This dress is fantastic for any occasion!  If you are dressy like me you can wear it everyday and it's even special enough to wear to a wedding if you wanted.  I think that makes a great dress when you can wear it for so many different things!

 

Have you purchased any new spring dresses this year?

April Flowers

If you are like me you are very excited for the arrival of spring.  It may be a bit chilly still on some days but the warm sun and the longer days are much appreciated!  The arrival of spring also means the arrival of gorgeous new spring fashions!!  I am going to be showing you 3 stunning pieces from April Cornell's spring line that are absolutely amazing!  

 

 

***  PROMO CODE OFFER!!! ***

Offer is good until June 30, 2019  (Offer is good for ONE use only per email address)


 

Spring fashion is always about layering as you must be able to take off and put on layers depending on the temperature at that moment.  The temperature can change so fast and you don't want to get caught being too hot or too cold. 

 

Getting the perfect spring coat is essential for me.  This one from April Cornell (See it here: click here) is absolutely perfect!  I love the bright color of this jacket and the way the gorgeous embroidery pops on it.   This jacket is nice and light but still warm being made out of 100% cotton!  I adore the cut of this jacket as it is so flattering to so many body shapes.  If you are loving the coat but the color is too bright for you it also comes in a beautiful blue color (see it here: click here).

 

Now onto the perfect layering pieces. Honestly these 2 white layering pieces (t-shirt and leggings) are a must have!  I will be showing you in my next blog the same 2 pieces layered again with another outfit and they look equally amazing! 

 

Lets start with the most adorable t-shirt!  This one is made from 100% cotton so it is really breathable keeping you cool in the warm weather and it is so soft. (See it here: click here) The crochet details at the ends of the sleeves is truly my favorite part! It adds just that something special to a simple t-shirt making it a piece you can wear with so many things.  This top also comes in a big selection of colors (See all colors here: click here)  

 

The cropped leggings I am wearing are so comfortable and made from 96% cotton and 4% spandex; beautiful material with the perfect stretch.  (see them here: click here)  The length of these leggings are fantastic to wear with shorter dresses and longer tops all spring and summer long.  The sweet subtle embroidery at the thigh that goes down past the knee is such a nice touch.  April Cornell always thinks of all the details to make each piece extra special.   These leggings also come in black (see them here: click here) and I am pretty sure I am going to need those as well for this season!
