Happy Friday everyone!
I know I said I would be bowing out of blogging for the next week but I have some time today, so I thought I would share a review with you.
Being a professional working gal, I find it difficult to blend a pop of bright color with professional work wear. My clothing must remain work appropriate especially when meeting with clients. Everyone knows I adore Lilly Pulitzer, but I can't wear all my Lilly dresses and Stephen Bonanno sandals to work. This is just the nature of my particular job. Case in point. This Lilly dress (from Jubilee 2009) and Lilly McKims would be inappropriate for my particular job. If you can wear this to work, I'm so happy for your ability to do so (I'm actually quite jealous!)
Does this mean my professional clothing should lack color? Absolutely not!
So on my quest to find professional, yet colorful and interesting work wear, I discovered eShakti.
eShakti's tag line is "You Design, We Customize." A customer is never told an item is out of stock in their size as one can either choose standard sizing OR customize, sometimes even changing the overall style of a piece of clothing.
How does this work? Measure your hips, arms, bust, waist and enter in your measurements when ordering a piece of clothing. Then customize your sleeves to be long, short, capped, sleeveless, 3/4 length. You can also choose the length of your dress or skirt. All orders, even custom, arrive on your doorstep in seven days. Their prices are also very reasonable.
The dress I chose is seen below. It is a shiny, lightweight wrap dress with pops of yellow at a cost of $59.95 (if I recall correctly). It wraps and ties on one side with buttons on both the right and left hand interior sides to keep the wrap in place. I was very pleased with this feature as wrap dresses sometimes either have a hole through the dress (which often gets torn) or there is no holding place, causing the dress to fall lose and constantly be re-tied. The buttons were also quite strong and large for flexibility in sitting and standing.
Happy Friday Y'all and once again, Happy Thanksgiving!
