The Girl in the Red Dress

DSC_1876e
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!

Hello gorgeous! You look great in a strapless! I feel the same way about fashion bloggers, how do they not feel completely awkward taking so many pictures of just themselves?

I'm not one for dresses (on me-- mainly because I'm 6'1" and they all just fit me funny) but this looks great on you. I laughed out loud when you did your Gone with the Wind twirl.. too cute! Red looks good on you and the necklace rocks! It almost looks like it is attached to the dress!

This has been very useful for ladies like me. Also the collection has been amazing; I'll definitely bring some similar hot dresses home, and won't forget wearing a bra tape (http://byebra.com/). I’ve some experience with these breast lifts and they go well with the dresses you show on your site.
