As you guys know, I'm a huge advocate of moms taking care of themselves by staying active in the fashion world. Too often we pour all we have into our little kiddos and we get lost along the way. One way I don't let this happen as a mom to four young kids is by taking pride in my appearance for myself.
For me, dawning a dress is just what I need to make my day a little brighter. And here in sunny, humid, sticky Florida, a dress is built-in air-conditioning. Winning!
I asked my Facebook followers to vote on which dress I should choose from eShaki from four options. There were lots of votes, lots of ideas as to why a dress suited me or would be most flattering to my figure. But in the end, the bubble check dress was the fan favorite. So to www.eshakti.com I went!
I customized it by adding cap sleeves and shortening it to knee length. I'm so glad I did! My arms are an area my eyes are drawn to when I'm scrutinizing pictures of myself. We all have that one spot, don't we, that makes us cringe? Well, for me, it's my arms. By adding the cap sleeves to the traditionally sleeveless dress, I solved my self conscious feelings and can wear it with nary a thought. I just love my figure looks in this dress.
And did I mention every dress comes with pockets?!?!?! Yes!!! They do! I love this feature because as a mom on-the-go I can throw my phone and keys in my pocket and keep up with my crazy gang.
This was my first time trying their customize option and it couldn't have been easier. On most of their dresses you can adjust the neckline (scoop, v-neck, sweetheart, etc.), sleeve type (none, cap, 3/4, etc) and adjust the hemline according to your height (because we all know knee length on someone who is 4'11" is vastly different than knee length on someone who is 6'1"). It's almost like having tailor made clothes. Oh the luxury!
I am extremely happy with my selection and thank you to everyone who voted! What do you guys think? What dress would you buy?
