Advance Warning: Sorry for the picture overload. Whenever Reiko shoots my photos, it’s so fun, and I like to share the story of it all through the photos, lol.
If you haven’t figured it out by know, I LOVE my friend Reiko, the blogger behind God’s Favorite Shoes, so when she called me a few weeks before her baby shower to request that I wear this eShakti dress, of course I had to oblige :-). When I picked this dress up from the mailbox last month, I was headed to Reiko’s house, so I tried it on there, and we were both instantly smitten! The gingham print and retro silhouette are perfection. The dress is originally knee length, but I love that eshakti allows for customization options. So, I had the dress made in a midi length, and I’m glad I did!
Dress: c/o eShakti (it seems that it’s no longer available, but this polka dot one in a similar shape is on my wish list); Clutch: Unknown- thrifted; Leopard Clutch Cover- Clutched & Covered; Shoes: Zara (similar)
If you’ve never shopped with eShakti, or are considering it, I encourage you to give them a try. They’re dresses come in size 0-36W, and they allow for a variety of customization options! With it being wedding and proposal season, I think it’s pretty cool that they’ve recently launched a Bridesmaids line (I’m not in any weddings antime soon, but I wouldn’t mind having this or this in my closet, lol).
I’m thinking I need to start taking special outfit request more often, as it certainly made my rush to get dressed after church that day a lot easier, lol. I’ve got my own special request for Reiko now, and that’s to borrow the dress she had made for her baby shower! It is a must see, and check out her fun maternity photos too :-).
