Embellished Tunic :: Eshakti // Skirt :: Local Shop // Lipstick :: MAC Girl About Town
Also when it comes to skirt my most comfortable length is one that rests just on the knee or just above. Unfortunately this too is hard to find...
So when I was contacted by Eshakti to review one of their items and I read up on what they were about I was ecstatic and jumped at the chance! I was sent this beautiful top soon after. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint either! The fabric feels great, it is light weight and the stitching at the colour and arms is SO PRETTY up close! Plus my neck is a key spot for sun damage so the cute little stand up collar is a gem! I got tones of complements on it that day and let me tell you I have to hold myself back from wearing it more. Isn't that always the case with pieces we love?
What I love most about it is that it is one of those pieces I can bend to my whim: I can style it up (like I did here in preparation for a fashion show evening out) then pulled it out of my skirt for a more dialled down look(It did get a bit rumpled but by that time of day who cares?) or I can style it for work ( soon! ) or for artsy things like poetry readings (Early November? I cant wait!) or just when I want to make a quick run into town to grab things.
Plus the fact that I got to customise it gives it a really personal touch to me. I made mine come just past my elbows and low past my butt which makes me most comfortable for professional events. I can't lie guys, I love it. I love it so much it took me this long to do a post about it because when I got it my camera was not cooperating but I wanted to do this piece justice so you could see how awesome it looks!
Eshakati is a shopping company where not only can you order beautiful clothes but you can customise them to your liking before having them sent to you. There tag line is 'We design you customize' Maybe now I can find myself some clothes without the judging eyes of shop keepers and friends who find I am being too old fashioned in my desires!
Okay so I got distracted from my initial point of searching for work clothes but you know haha. Number 1 has a special place in my heart as it is laden with the colours of my flag and would make a right proper independence day dress!
Peace. Love. You deserve the right fit.
