The Girl in the Red Dress
I was contacted by eShakti to do a review on a piece of their clothing. This was my first ever request, so of course I was like, absolutely!!! eShakti is an online retailer that offers custom tailoring on their pieces. This allows women to make preferences according to their fit/style, etc. I honestly could not make a choice of which item I wanted to personalize. I knew I wanted a dress, but there were so many adorable options, it took me a while to decide. Go check out all their options!! You can also see their items on FB & Pinterest.
Honestly, I try to stay away from strapless dresses. I don’t know what it is, but they just do not look flattering on me. However, I’m so naturally drawn to the strapless….I love all of them. So, I thought I would take a chance on this little red dress. First, I just love the polka-dots. Second, I really don’t have much red in my closet. Since the big chunky necklaces are so on-trend right now, I thought this may be a good addition to making the strapless look better on me.
The ordering process was super easy. All you have to do is put in your standard size and height. I chose to keep the neckline the same, but I changed the length to right above the knee. I think this makes the dress a little more versatile, rather if it was super short. I was super impressed by the boning and fabric that helped this dress stay in place. No pulling this bad boy up all the time :)
Another thing I loved about the dress are the pockets. How cute are these?!
And lastly, I love the detail in the back with the faux-buttons. It adds so much instead of having just plain material in the back. So cute!!
And because I feel ridiculous for having an entire post of pictures of me….I decided to add a couple of fun ones. The picture above is me doing my “gone-with-the-wind-fabulous” twirl. Gotta love you some crazy RHOA!
And lastly, this is my “I’m getting pretty hot and it is very sunny out / I don’t know what other faces to make any more besides smiling.” Seriously, I have no idea how you fashion bloggers do it!
So, thanks so much if you made it through this post. I apologize all these pictures are of me…next time I’ll bring Brutus to the photo shoot for some variability!
