Red on Red


Dress - c/o eShakti / Necklace - JCrew Factory / Bag - Darby Smart / Heels - Shoe Mint




I've heard great things about eShakti, and was really excited when they reached out to to me to pick something out.  eShakti is an online retailer full of super adorable retro-y designs that can be custom made based on your measurements.  I have a really hard time finding clothing that fits me off the rack, especially dresses, so being able to have something custom made was amazing.  And not only did I get to enter in my measurements, I also was given the option to customize the length, the neckline, and the sleeve style to my preferences.  I chose to change the hemline of this to just above the knee, but could have also gone shorter or longer.

With the addition of this little number I picked up back in June, I now have two little red dresses in my closet.  Red is one of those colors that I used to shy away from, but now I'm really loving how bold it is.  I can definitely see adding some more of it to my closet.

  2. ohhhh I need a red dress for my cousins wedding next month! I love this dress from eShakati, but last time they offered me a dress it never arrived at my doorstep and they haven't been so great with getting back to me. :-(

  13. You chose a fantastic dress, Kristina! I love the silhouette of this dress on you, and the color is so striking! eShakti really makes some great pieces, don't they? I reviewed one of their dresses in the spring, and I'm actually going to be wearing it to a wedding this weekend! :)
