Shades Of Blue & A Pop Of Red

Happy Hump Day! 

Honest moment. I’m so excited to be back at work and back into the swing of things. We seriously have the most amazing closet team and everyday is filled with laughs & fun…but I am tired!! You would think my body would have adjusted to my big girl job hours by now, but it has not. It probably doesn’t help that for a good two weeks I went to bed at 3:00 A.M and woke up at noon…

My style is always dependent on my mood. I dress for the kind of person I want to be that day. Some days I feel super confident and glamorous so I’ll throw on a pair of heels or some bold lipstick. Some days I feel very “downtown, SoHo girl” so I’ll throw on my slip on sneakers and a great button down. Honestly it depends on who I want to be on that specific day. But, regardless of how I feel or what I wear I always have an inner girly girl. Honestly I could live in dresses & skirts, but when you have hips & a butt, finding flattering dresses and skirts is not always easy. 
I’ve always loved the full circle skirt with box pleat style, but could never find the perfect one that didn’t make my bottom half look massive. So I was ecstatic when eShakti reached out to me with the opportunity to review this amazing skirt. The first thing that stood out to me was the silhouette and of course the print. I love the houndstooth mixed with the floral embroidery. I was so nervous to try this out because I figured it would make me look massive, but I’m actually in love with it and find it incredibly flattering. 
The best thing about eShakti is that you can mildly customize your piece by not only picking your size, but you can input your height and select your desired hem as well as a few other simple details…but it gets better! You can also customize it completely to your body by inputting your exact measurements. For someone who’s only 4″11 and has a small waist and big hips this is a dream come true. Plus I was amazed at how quick the skirt arrived and what great quality it is. I’ve had such an amazing experience with the company that I’m definitely making a list of wish list items including this dress & this skirt.

    I am in love with your skirt! eShakti is great. Also, I had no idea you were 4'11. I just want to pick you up and squeeze you (I'm only 5'1, so I don't really know where I have room to talk.) You look fabulous!

    Killer everything especially that bag, skirt and coat! Red is such a powerful color. Also, I feel you I live in jeans and button ups but my inner girly girl is strong.
