Oh hi there darlings!
Christmas is right around the corner now, and with that comes trimming the tree, baking the cookies, and thinking about holiday dressing. That's right - I get pretty darn excited every Christmas Eve to dress up - for dinner, for church, you know - the whole shebang. Anyhow, this year I was over the moon when eShakti.com asked me to pick a piece from their holiday collection to wear and review and well - here I am, happy as an elf.
My eye was immediately drawn to this floral velveteen skater style beaut - um, hello there gorgeous. It actually reminded me of this vintage piece I had in my possession a while back - which I reluctantly sold. So how amped was I that a similar piece made it's way into my closet once again.
As always - I am quite fond of eShakti and the quality of their dresses. This one was no exception. It's full - lined skirt and decorative gold zipper down the back are details I especially love on this piece. Though one thing I do have to mention - in the past I always took the customization route when ordering from their site. They actually encourage you to do this as you plug in all your measurements when checking out. However, this time around - I ordered a standard medium. I figured that since I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I wouldn't need to customize will all my exact measurements since I tend to wear a medium or size 6 across the board. Eeh. As I am small-boned but still very curvy in the bust and hips - I found that this medium (which eShakti actually considers a size 8), was slightly big in my shoulders. It's not so much of a big deal to me as the dress fit awesome otherwise - but since customizations are offered, I will in the future be taking full advantage of plugging in my exact measurements. I would definitely recommend doing so if you happen to be short/petite like me.
** Unfortuniately this particular dress is currently sold out on their site...which is no surprise to me! You can however check out the rest of eShakti.com's holiday collection right here. There this LBD dress with a deer on the front of it that I am particular smitten with as well (see here).
That's all for now darlings! As the holidays near, I intend to wear this lovely with sheer tights, pretty heels, and perhaps a floral crown - but for now as I am running out for coffee with the Mr. and kiddos, so I layered it up with a blazer, slouchy hat, and circle scarf because, baby, it's cold outside!
What will you be wearing for the holidays?
Talk soon...Love bunches,
