Today I have something very special for my community. I’m giving away this beautiful midi dress inspired by Marilyn Monroe—in three sizes. Here it is:
I took these photos when it was raining outside, so here are some rare indoor photos in front of my gorgeous tree.
It has been a v. long time since my last outfit post because this season has been so, so busy. Not complaining in the least, but blogging unfortunately falls by the wayside sometimes. Anyway, this is a fun, festive outfit I may wear for my Christmas Eve/Day festivities. Soft dress, nice and comfy stockings (I’m one of those people who think stockings are comfortable), and shoes I will probably kick off the moment dinner starts!
Also adore this blazer. Goes with almost every blouse/dress in my closet, and makes everything look super cute.

Happy summer! Love this gorgeous dress from SheInside, with these long, flowy sleeves. It’s JUNE, all of a sudden, so pretty soon it’s going to be too hot to wear something this heavy/dark. A teensy bit edgier than my usual look. 😉

This dress reminds me so much of Roman Holiday and Audrey Hepburn, and it’s thanks to a wonderful company called eShakti. I’d heard about eShakti before they contacted me: they’re a clothing company committed to bringing beautiful fashion pieces to women of all sizes, and they go about it in a unique way. When you pick an item on their site, you have the option to have your piece cut and tailored to your exact measurements. Isn’t that awesome? No more fussing with fit reviews or wondering if the dress you want comes in your size. Everything is perfectly tailored. And they carry sizes 0-36W.
I love the message of eShakti but if possible, I love this dress even more. I almost never wear full skirts like these, and I loved how feminine I felt with the skirt swishing around me. It’s got a retro vibe, so I really did feel like Audrey Hepburn running around Rome! The print contributes to this feeling too.
Ordering from eShakti is an awesome experience. I picked the dress I wanted and then took my measurements. They ask for standard measurements like waist, bust, hips and shoulder span, but they also offer huge customizations on the shape and cut of the dress itself. You can pick the length of the skirt (mini, maxi, midi, etc.), the sleeve type, even the shape of the neckline. It was really awesome. I opted to keep the dress sleeveless and with a square neckline, but I made the skirt mini because I’m short.
The dress was beautifully packaged and pressed:
When I put it on it literally felt like a glove. I couldn’t believe how well it fit, but that’s obviously due to the care they take to make sure your dress is cut and tailored specifically for you. I felt so pampered. My mom loved the dress and she grabbed her iPad and went on the website immediately, it was pretty funny.

I just got this dress from a new sponsor Yoyomelody.com and I instantly fell in love with it when I opened the package. The fabric is really good quality, and the little anchors are stitched rather than printed on it, which I love. It fits me perfectly, and I can tell this dress will become one of my favorite, go-to dresses for both cool and hot weather. I definitely recommend Yoyomelody’s dresses and tops. I also received a casual tee with a cat face on it that I can’t wait to wear!
I wanted to wear this dress when I was in Portland, but it didn’t come in time. Oh, well! I wore the dress with my favorite new shoes from Nasty Gal, which I got for 50% off 🙂
