Daily Outfit: EShakti
December 19, 2012 § 2 Comments
This is NOT a real outfit post! I repeat NOT a real outfit. No really, I swear. I guess it could be but I doubt I would wear these pieces together. I bought each one because I liked them. Besides it is freaking snowing out there and I don’t own any navy colored shoes or tights (or even green tights) so nude shoes and bare legs is so NOT.GOING.TO.HAPPEN. I”m just happy to own nude pumps finally. And I didn’t bother to get out the wrinkles in each piece which causes them both to sit a bit funny (that and the way I am holding my arm to my side to hide my arm fat). Yay, I know. I could have done better but didn’t. Trust me it does fit properly. And honestly I will probably wear it with sweaters, cardigans and the like anyhow. I hate having my chicken wings flap in the breeze.
ANYHOW! I bought these pieces from eShakti during that massive sale just before Thanksgiving and I wanted share yet another assessment of them since I did something different this time around. This time I shrunk every measurement by an inch. It worked beautifully. The red dress fits but it doesn’t “fit fit” if you know what I mean. These 2 pieces fit so much better. I definitely recommend going down the inch. The green top I love. It has tuxedo tails and drapes beautifully when not tucked in. The skirt on the other hand I am really unsure of. It wrinkles. Badly and easily. I love how it is supposed to look but it is so damn fussy! And with it being high-waisted it makes me look pregnant. And again I have to mention the no navy shoes thing. I have no idea if I will wear this much. Just not practical. But I can see the potential so it stays.
Oh and these pumps from Payless? Love them! Very comfortable, the perfect height at 3 inches and no stupid platform. Definitely worth the $20 price tag. And even in “patent leather” tan they “match” my skin tone. As a pasty girl I am happy about that! I may end up buying them in every color under the rainbow!
