OOTD: Twirl {eShakti dress review}.

All pictures credit to Shara Lynn Photography

Dress: c/o eShakti || Cardigan: LOFT || Shoes: Jack Rogers || Sunglasses: Kohl's || Bow: {local boutique} || Bracelets: c/o Urban Peach Boutique || Ring: {old} || Earrings: Talbots || Nails: Essie in Bottle Service || Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure 

     I think these might be some of my favorite pictures that I've ever shared on my blog! As always my friend Shara did an amazing job with the photography on these images, and I'm seriously in love with them. It only helped that the dress that I'm wearing had the most perfect skirt for twirling! ;-)

     I'm so excited to be reviewing a dress in the post from eShakti. eShakti is an online women's apparel company that primarily sells beautiful dresses (although they do have a decent selection of tops, jackets and skirts as well!). Their dresses range from casual sundresses to gorgeous semi-formal dresses. And the best part is that all of the clothing on their website can be custom fitted and designed to your height, size and style, for a very low additional cost. How wonderful is that? One of the reasons that I have always been a hesistant online clothing shopper is because I'm always unsure of how things will fit once they arrive. But with the customizations that eShakti is able to do I certainly felt a lot more confident, and the beautiful dress that they sent me arrived fitting perfectly

     On a different note, the day that these pictures were taken was the first day in a few weeks that I'd straightened my hair. I finally noticed how long it's getting again, which makes me so happy! I've missed my long hair more than anything! I'm just going to let it keep growing and growing and growing, until it's back to its crazy long length that it was at when I was in high school again. :-) 

     I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I'm in the middle of my five day work week, it started on Wednesday and is running through Sunday. But I'm looking forward though to going out to dinner on Saturday night with some of my high school friends at our favorite local Mexican restaurant, and then having a fun day trip to Boston on Monday with my friend Katie for a blogging meet-up!
