Hapy Memorial Day & My Cinco de Mayo Dress - a few days late!

First of all, happy Memorial Day. May we never forget those who have sacrificed their lives in service to our great nation.

This is a few days late, but I wanted to share my new eShakti dress with y'all. While everyone else enjoyed queso and margaritas on Cindo de Mayo (two of my favorite things!), I took a final after work. I was feeling festive in this gorgeous embroidered dress from eShakti, however! I thought it was perfect to wear for Cinco De Mayo.
eShakti is a company that offers a variety of different dress styles that are custom made using your measurements. The wedges I wore are several years old, and they worked perfectly. I love them and never get to wear them.
I went with a dress that was different for me - a new shape altogether than I normally wear. I usually wear shift dresses, sheath dresses, or maxi dresses. I never wear a full skirt, even though these are in right now - because I am self conscious about my size. I am happy to say that I felt more comfortable and liked this shape way more than I thought I would!
I might even try wearing  fuller skirt like this with a cropped top like girls are doing now. I've seen it on girls that it looks so good on.

  1. I really like the dress! I feel awkward in skirts, too.

  2. I love the top of that dress, I'm really loving embroidery details right now :)
