Will you invite me to a garden party please?
I have the perfect dress. And by perfect, I mean I’m in love with a piece of cotton like it’s my best friend holding a warm chocolate lava cake.
I’m a dress wearer by nature, mostly because I’m lazy when it comes to styling outfits. Dresses are about the simplest thing to wear – throw it over your head and add shoes. That’s my kind of outfit!
Plus, they are cool in summer, can be layered with tights, boots, and sweaters in the winter, and camouflage the problem parts. We all, well, mostly all of us have problem parts. Don’t we?
Maybe you’ve heard of eShakti, but have you ever ordered one of their dresses?
I’m scared to death of ordering things online, because I can’t bring three sizes into the fitting room and spend thirty minutes under glaring lights wondering if my butt looks a little larger than life. eShakti fixes that problem. You simply take your measurements and order your size. It comes to your door ready to wear and fitting like a glove. They have the most flattering styles and prints, and get this, they offer customization for a nominal fee. You can change the sleeves, the neckline, and the length of any dress. You can have a dress made to fit you – your shape, your curves, your body.
No more guesswork.
I mean, sure I’m slightly Stepford, but things could always be worse. At least they’re cute robots. They could have all been wearing black spandex stretched thin two hundred pounds ago with a sleeveless white (at one time) button down shirt and dirty old tennis shoes. Think about it.
Because, I’m still in love with my party dress.
It’s made well and it has pockets. What else could a girl want in a dress? It’s got a vintagy feel without the bad smell and sweat stains.
I love it.
If I let myself dream a little (and go into virtual debt while shopping), I’d order a whole bunch of these dresses.
So, if you were me, where would wear this dress?
Shoes are Kmart (because I’m classy like that) and the necklace is real vintage (no bad smell included).
** A special thanks to the incredible retired couple who let me use their boat as a prop. They traveled all the way from Florida to New York and are heading on to the Great Lakes. They’ve lived in their boat for the past three years and love traveling America by sea. They didn’t even look at me funny when I asked to take pictures with it. They acted like it was totally normal and girls dressed in heels asked them that question every single day.
