Style: Hummingbirds for the win (and for free!)


At long last, it has happened: I got my first item of clothing for free!! The fine people of eShakti must have heard my pleas, took pity on me and kindly offered me to choose one of their beautiful dresses or skirts. As I was browsing through the collection, my husband peeked over my shoulder (something he rarely does), and as soon as he saw this hummingbird one, he told me that I needed to get it. He's a bird man (as evidenced by the hundreds and thousands of birds we own), and obviously has excellent taste (hello, I'm his wife!), so I followed his advice. 

And I'm in love! It has the three main requirements I look for in dresses: pockets, great fit, and a whimsical print. The last one is actually a brand-new requirement that I have just introduced - I love this print! Which is actually no print, but stitching. Which is even better. 

Anyway, eShakti is well known in blogland, but none of my RL friends had heard of them, which once again proves that blogland is quite often the cooler place to be. Sorry real world, it's true.
Their speciality is that they make custom clothes, which is what I did as well: I chose a different neckline (sweetheart, as requested by my sweetheart - he was really involved in the entire process), and skirt length that is hitting just at the knee.   


Dress: c/o eShakti (this one doesn't seem to be available any more, but this pretty one is similar); shoes: Swedish Hasbeens; necklace: gift

The dress is very good quality, and 100% cotton, which I love. I'm already planning fall and winter outfits with it...

 Dog tested and approved.

xoxo Miriam
