Cruise In Fashion Style

I love clothes! I mean what girl doesn't? 
Clothes, clothes, clothes. Gimme, gimme, gimme!

I love vacation! Again, what girl doesn't? No work, just fun, yay vacation. 

Wanna know what I really love?!?!

New clothes, while on vacation. WOOHOOO!

 I JUMPED for joy when I was contacted by eShakti, to review an article of clothing. eShakti is THE online women's fashion apparel company and they offer sizing from 0-36W. Or, you can get your order CUSTOM tailored to your exact measurements, cha-ching right?!?

They have so many wonderful products and to be honest, it was really hard to decide WHAT I wanted to review. I took awhile deliberating and even called in my girl, Clo for some help. Thanks girlie, you dabombdotcom!

After perusing their fabulous tops and lovely dresses, I finally chose a beautiful vintage-inspired, black and white dress, with red ribbing. Y'all know I love a good vintage dress. 



I chose to wear the dress with vintage waves, one of my wedding hair pieces and a bright bold lip. I also wore a white cardigan to keep warm since we were in Alaska. I loved the overall look and am looking forward to recreating it at home.

Clearly, I'm no fashion blogger…just a crazy blogger ;)!

I love everything about this dress. 
The cut, the style, pop of red and I especially love the quality. 
The fabric and stiching was fabulous and not at all flimsy. 

I chose to go with the eShakti size [2] and if I had to do it all over again, I would have taken advantage of their custom tailoring. Don't get me wrong, their size was dead on, but girlfriend's been working about a bit and my shoulders/back are much bigger than most women my size, making the arm area a bit snug. I'm sure a few runs and laying of the weights will help, but the dress is still totally wearable and fabulous

Thank you so much, eShakti!

 Make sure you check out eShakti on their website, or  Face book, Pinterest & Twitter.


**please say a prayer for my dear, sweet, beautiful friend Jess and her family as they deal with another sad and unexpected goodbye. Love you, lady**
