If you still haven’t tried eShakti yet, let me tell you why you simply must do it. First of all, they offer a wide range of colors, cuts, patterns and materials that change frequently. Secondly, you have the option to customize your order to fit your style and your body. They also feature their clothing as seen on their customers and bloggers in their “Real fashion for Real people” marketing which showcases all of our beautiful and unique shapes and sizes. Hooray for real beauty!

I decided on the lovely Emma Dress (see my previous selection here). I have been attracted to vintage styles lately and I liked the color and pretty neckline. I opted to include sleeves (since I always seem to be freezing when I wear sleeveless dresses) but kept the length as below the knee. I love how it turned out!

One of my favorite details are the pockets! I just love a dress with pockets.

When ordering from eShakti it is important to know your measurements, not just your size. So get out your tape measure and use your bust, waist and hip measurements to get a perfectly fit garment. If you are in between sizes on their size chart, I recommend going up a size. I find that their items fit snug and you’ll appreciate the wiggle room.

Review: Bitter Root Vintage

171_HHS-BitterRootTeaDress-outfit 171_HHS-BitterRootTeaDress-altpose

I’m very lucky to call Bitter Root Vintage one of my sponsors. Their vivacious dresses, skirts and accessories are demur and sexy. Vintage cuts and gorgeous fabrics are yet another reason to peruse their shop.

And let us not forget the details of pretty packaging and a hand written note!

171_HHS-BitterRootTeaDress-packaging

This Two for Tea dress is a classic 40′s inspired navy blue & white polka dot tea dress with a subtly flared hem & charming keyhole neck and back line. Silky soft and stretchy fabric, fitted and lined bodice. Feminine, pretty, and perennially stylish!

I decided to add some red details with a sash belt and tri-colored Jessica Simpson peep-toe pumps. It would also look amazing with mustard, cobalt or green. This dress would be easy to wear to work or a special occasion.

Outfit: Monochromatic Winter White

Can a pale person pull off all winter white? Sure, why not? I’ve seen several monochromatic looks that I’ve wanted to try but none more than the all white look. So I did it. Sorry to repeat the Banana Republic polka dot cardigan again this week but it was required for the look. I added a red lip for a little jolt of color (and a Valentine’s Day nod) and kept the accessories minimal.

Outfit: Tights or no Tights?

I wish I would’ve had some fun tights to go with this outfit but I haven’t figured out if I am a funky tights person or not. I envision funky tight people as either fashion runway model types heading to some creative job in NY or Zooey Deschanel. Or maybe Rhianna. None of which describe me. Where do you land on the tights wearing spectrum?

As far as the rest of the outfit, I played it safe with the cream cardigan so the cobalt shirt and skirt could be the stars.

Outfit: I Have A Problem

Ok, I have more than one but in this instance I’m talking about my gravitational pull towards polka dots. I’m even working on a DIY project that involves polka dots. Anyone know what it means that I like it so much? I’m going to assume it shows a great sense of character and creativity. Yeah, that sounds right.

Outfit: Subtle Patterns

This lace pencil skirt from Target has lasted much longer than expected which is a wonderful surprise. I had no idea how much use I could get out of a green skirt (like here and here). Subtle pattern on pattern mixing is something I’m getting much more comfortable doing. So who knows. Maybe bold pattern mixing is not too far behind.

Outfit: Even More Dots

That’s right. Polka dots followed by polka dots. I just can’t help myself. Plus I love that the pattern and colors of this cardigan evoke an animal print vibe. Almost a two for one!
