eShakti Grace Dress

dress// eShakti (c/o) glasses//Armani Exchange Bangles// Bauble Bar & Threads shoes// Steve Madden 

Tonight Reese and I are headed to a rehearsal dinner for some sweet friends who are getting married on Saturday. The dinner is being held at a tennis club which makes me want to pour a martini and strike up a conversation with Don Draper. So when eShakti asked me to review one of their sweet 50's inspired dresses I knew that this dinner was the perfect event to pull out a full skirt for! One of my favorite things about this dress is that is cut on the retro side but also has a modern twist with the illusion neckline. I also upped the modern value by adding a half braid and some chunky bangles. My absolute favorite part of this dress is the fact that eShakti has length, sleeve and neck line options. For instance, this dress was originally a maxi dress and for shorties like me sometimes maxi dresses online are dangerous territory, so I had is shortened. No safety pins (no, I have never done that...) No expensive tailor, No fuss...easy!

Here are a few eShakti picks that would be fabulous for summer!

This dress was gifted in exchange for review. All opinions are my own and truthful and trust me, I tell it like it is... just ask my students.

you just look amazing. that dress seriously fits you like a dream. it looks like eShakti has stepped their game up! that fabric looks really beautiful and flows nicely. i've received pieces from them in the past that were more stiff/wrinkly no matter what i did to them, and also didn't fit me in the chest area very well even though i gave my measurements. i think i'll give them another shot and see how it goes!
