Store Spotlight: eShakti

Some of you may remember the review I did for eShakti a year and a half ago. They sent me this incredibly rad skirt and I still love it.

As a refresher, eShakti is an online store that offers customizable (that's what I said, completely customizable) clothing in an array of sizes and styles. You want that skirt to be knee length? Absolutely. You want sleeves on that dress? Done. You're 5'-11" - and want a garment that's tailored to you? You found the right place.

Here are some of my favorite things they have in stock right now:

1 - Crepe Faux-Wrap Skirt - $39.95
2 - The Birds Who Gossip Dress - $69.95 {How stinking cute is this dress? Love the colors + print}
3 - Monte Carlo Jacket - $69.95
4 - Birds in the Air Dress - $59.95
5 - Bows and Whistles Skirt - $59.95
6 - Sash Waist Fleece Dress - $59.95

Why I think it's worth shopping eShatki: All styles are available in all sizes {0 - 26W} at all times. All orders {including custom orders} ship within three days, and even custom orders are returnable. How's that for customer service?

And my favorite thing? eShakti has provided all my fabulous readers with a coupon code.

Look for Less: Marc Jacobs Hopper Tab-Waist Dress

I already posted on this target dress, but I just realized that it is a spot on look-a-like of this Marc Jacobs ponte dress:

Hopper Tab-Waist Dress - Bergdorf Goodman - $258.00
Tab Waist Ponte Dress - Target - $29.99

Would you wear this? Leave your thoughts below.

Inspiration: J.Crew {Fuchsia + Fedora}

This image has been floating around pinterest, and I just had to post on it.

My version:

Shirred Shoulder Top - Gap - $24.99 (Orig. $59.50)
Slub Knit Cardigan - Forever 21 - $15.80
         I also like these options {one | two}
Cuffed Dress Capris - Old Navy - $36.94
Miss Me Zeal-1 Slip-On Loafer - Endless - $24.95

        And if you want to throw a fedora into the mix: {one | two | three}

I am kicking myself for not posting the pants last week as they were on sale for $15! I am also kicking myself because I once owned a pair of ankle length slacks this very color. I got them for $10 at Nordstrom in 2005. I stopped wearing them after a year or two, at the time the color seemed too loud. They were beautifully lined too. Ok, enough kicking. To whoever bought those pants at the DI for $6, you're welcome.

What do you think? Is this something you would wear?

Spied: Henley Pocket Long Sleeve Blouse


I am loving this blouse. The color + shape are fabulous, and the henley + pocket details make me happy. And it's on sale, which makes me really happy.

Henley Pocket Long Sleeve Blouse - Loft - $24.75 (Orig. $49.50)

The Loft is currently offering 50% off their Must-Haves with coupon code | SHOP50. Make sure to check it out! {Available online + in-store}

Look for Less: Anthropologie Overachiever Sweatshirt

I spotted this look for less and just had to share:

Ella Moss Overchiever Sweatshirt - Anthropologie - $138 {sold out}
Holiday Sparkle Sweater - American Eagle - $59.50

I, personally, prefer the AE version The fabric is a bit more delicate. I also think this look could be a pretty good DIY if you had some time to bead or came across the right applique.

Whenever I think about having another baby I get Premature Mom Guilt.

Friday Wishlist: Double-Cloth Townhouse Trench

You know what I miss? Tailored clothes. As I mentioned here, the only parts of my closet that fit right are the stretchy things. All of my tailored clothes are too snug. The few that I can get on make me feel like a stuffed sausage. Sigh.

I saw this coat, and I let out an audible "ooohhh". The fit is insanely perfect.

Double-Cloth Townhouse Trench - J.Crew - $350.00

Outfit Under $100 {Robots + Leather}

I saw this discounted top and built this outfit around it.

3/4 Sleeve Colorblock Top - Forever 21 - $15.99 (Orig, $22.90)
Robot Pendant Necklace - Old Navy - $9.06 $12.94
{30% off at Old Navy through tomorrow, use coupon code | 48HOURS}
Stretch Skinnies - Forever 21 - $10.50
Merona® Kasia Tall Genuine Leather Boots - Cognac - Target $69.99
{Free shipping on orders over $50 | buy one get on half off deal}

total: $105.54

I know the outfit total is a bit on the pricey side, but that is because of the boots. The genuine leather boots. The investment.The top reminds me a bit of this anthro look, in an understated kind of way. And I am mildly obsessed with the robot pendant, and at 30% off it's hard to pass up.
