One of the things I love the most as a blogger is to be able to talk about brands that are truly size inclusive. I don't mean brands that tap out at a size 22-24, either. There are plenty of folks that are sized out of cute clothing, and that will never be okay with me.
That is why I was so excited when eShakti reached out to me about sending me a dress to review! They have beautiful clothing in sizes 0-36W (!!!) and also have options to customize items like the neckline, sleeves, length, and even put in your measurements for a custom fit.
I spent a long time looking at their site and I fell in love with the Ruched Striped Print Georgette Midi Dress. It was something that was a little bit different for me, but the color story just pulled me in and I love how flowy and romantic it felt.
I put in my custom measurements for the fit and the only modification that I made was to the neckline; as someone that has a larger chest I don't prefer higher necklines, so I was really excited when I could make it a scoop neckline.
The dress itself took almost a month to come in, but considering that it was a custom fit that wasn't an issue for me at all. It was well worth the wait, though!
The fabric is just as flowy and beautiful as I hoped it would be, and the colors are super vibrant in person. The dress is incredibly well made and the fit is a dream. This would be perfect for a wedding, a date night, or any event where you would want to have a special dress to stand out in.
Once again, thank you to eShakti for sponsoring this post! I would highly recommend ordering from them and I know that I will be getting more from them in the future.
One of the best investments I have made recently was purchasing the $19 a year Premier Delivery from ASOS. It is so awesome to be able to make my purchases and get unlimited two-day and standard shipping with no minimum purchase. It pays for itself super quickly and I loveRead more >
Like a lot of folks I love the look of clothing from Free People. It greatly appeals to my aesthetic, but not so much my wallet. I love the idea of buying one piece I love as opposed to a bunch of pieces because they are inexpensive, but let’sRead more >
A lot of folks have been asking me what I do as far as my skin, so I figured that I would write a blog about it! I’ll be all the way honest; I really only started taking care of my skin in the last six months or so. IRead more >
I have a confession to make. I tried really hard for a long time to be a crunchy mom, but I have come to realize that I honestly just kind of suck at it. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of things about being crunchy that I do;Read more >
Photo shoot on 3/16/19 in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte, NC; photos by my husband, Sean P. Friday, March 15th marked 75 days since I bought my domain name and started this journey! I feel like I have learned a lot in that short span ofRead more >
Anyone who knows me knows that deep down I am very introverted. I am someone who is reserved at first and it takes me a while to warm up. Once I get there it is all systems go, but the getting there? It takes me a while. I just haveRead more >
Happy Saturday, y’all! I just wanted to hop on and write a little update on what’s been up with me, how things have been going with blogging/influencing, and what I will be doing this month. My family and I were plagued with feeling ill on and off the last fewRead more >
Today turned out to be an unexpectedly beautiful day in Charlotte. I’d already planned to take my oldest out to buy some books (he found a forgotten gift card he wanted to use) but we also decided to go to the South End neighborhood to see the Confetti Hearts Wallthat wasRead more >
Make-up and beauty products are something that have always interested me but I always somehow felt like I needed to downplay it or hide it from people. I grew up in such a way that either you were ‘pretty’ or you were ‘smart’. I wanted to be seen as smartRead more >
