Happy Sunday! I’ve been saving this dress for awhile. This is actually the dress that I got for free from eShakti months ago after winning one of their contests on facebook. I haven’t worn it because I customized it specifically to my measurements, and this is the only dress I modified for maternity wear. I gave myself a lot of extra room in the waist. Until now, it was too much room, but I’m finally big enough to fill it out (I bet you never thought I’d be happy about being “big” enough for a dress). I also customized it to add sleeves, but the more I think about, the more I think I missed an opportunity with that one. I think in the sleeveless option, this would look super cute as a jumper with a collared shirt underneath it. I may end up taking the sleeves off eventually so I can do it. I like the way it looks with a cardigan, but I’m not a big fan of how it looks with sleeves. Oh, well. I can’t complain about a free dress. Either way, I ALWAYS appreciate how customizable eShakti’s dresses are. So many options for styling.
With all the great options from eShakti, you may wonder why I picked this as my winning dress. I love how many possibilities exist with chambray as a neutral. It’s such a blank slate of a dress and can be styled into so many different looks! I’m going to have fun coming up with different combinations for this dress.
The cardigan is another one of ModCloth’s Charter School Cardigans (do I sound like a broken record yet?). I did have a bit of trouble with this one because it fits smaller and shorter than every other color I own, but their customer service was AMAZING and worked me through an unexpectedly complicated exchange process. I cannot sing the praises of ModCloth’s customer service enough. They really do go the extra mile to make sure their customers are happy.
The shoes were from a 6pm sale awhile ago, but this is the first time I’ve been happy pairing them with an outfit. I am such a sucker for the t-strap as well as the rich brown color.
I know there’s been a lot of snow around the states these past couple of weeks, but the weather here today has been beautiful. I hope things are warming up where you are so you can be a little more flexible with your fashion choices (no one likes to wear heavy coats and snow boots every day)! Happy Shopping!
