FLORAL PRINT SASH WAIST DRESS FEATURING ESHAKTI

I am so happy that I found an online retail company that caters to women of ALL sizes! I believe that women should look and feel beautiful and confident no matter what size they are. I am very pleased that the movement towards  body positivity is growing and people are starting to realize the true definition of beauty. Which is why when I got introduced to eShakti I was instantly in-love <3 eShakti is thinking ahead than any online stores I know. They are not only catering to the smaller or petite gal, they are catering to sizes OO - 36W ! How awesome is that!? So to all girls around the world, not to worry! You can also look stylish and fab with eShakti. Check out their website and venture into their categories of dresses, tops, skirts, wedding dresses, and dresses for the bridal party!

I'm very excited to share with you my pick; a floral print sash waist dress.

I never thought ordering a custom made dress made in my exact measurements would be so easy! Here is how it works!

Step 1) Go to eShakti.com to browse your favorites!

Step 2) Input your measurements (Shoulder, Bust, Chest, Under Bust, Upper Arm, Hip and Waist)

I was in-between sizes so what I appreciated from eShakti was how they provided me with photos. These photos explained 'how to' measure correctly in order for me gather my measurements more accurately.

Step 3) Customize! I thought this feature was so awesome. I was able to request for my dress to be 'knee length' versus above the knee. I also added POCKETS! Something the dress did not have before. You can alter your look and request a boat neck style (just like the one I am wearing), V-Neck, round neck, sleeveless, capped sleeves, etc.

I love dresses with pockets! Therefore I was STOKED when I received my dress within 12-14 days because I was looking forward to checking out the pockets! eShakti made me feel as if I am the only one with this kind of dress with it's shape and style. Maybe I am? I'd like to think so ;-)

There are so many things about this dress that I love! The material is light, airy and great quality! Perfect for brunch with my honeybun or for an outdoor party event. I love the sashed belt! If you know me, you know I am all about creating curves and this belt does the trick.

I also love the floral print! I do not own very many dresses with prints so I knew I had to add this to my closet. I also appreciate that eShakti included a slip to wear under the dress. So thoughtful of them! <3 It made me feel more confident in the dress knowing that nothing will show through.

POST-EASTER SUNDAY OUTFIT

Happy Post-Easter Everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their time with their families and friends! Whether you celebrated Easter or not, you can always dress up on this day! I decided to put together a dress that I had not worn! I tend to buy items that I won't wear immediately, but know "I will wear it one day" (as I tell myself). This is one of those dresses!

I wear a lot of A-Line Dresses because it flatters my body and creates more of a shape. Since my figure is an up and down shape rather than curvy, I need to make sure I find dresses that grab me at the waist, and flare out at that ends. That is the A-Line Dress! The good news is, an A-Line dress can flatter any figure! This style will make someone with curves look like they have a tiny waist. It's a great style to play with and feel elegant in.

I decided to pick an A-Line dress that has a floral print on it because of my figure. Prints add some build-on to my body, and leads the eye to focus on the shape and print of the dress. If you have curves, try wearing a solid or neutral color to make you look long and lean.

This plastic beaded necklace I have worn several times with different outfits ranging from casual to dressy. Invest in a similar necklace with color! You won't regret it.

I am finally using this purse from Kate Spade New York because of the awesome color block. It fits the theme for Spring and big enough to hold all my stuff for travel, or on-the-go!

Since I have a lot going on with the outfit, I kept my shoes neutral to best finish this look. Neutral heels will always make your legs look longer so pick a shoe color that blends well with your skin tone.

A must have item is THE TRENCH COAT! Invest in one! It makes any outfit look classy chic!
