Outfit Details
Dress: c/o eShakti

Heels: Discount Shoe Factory ( They were $7.99!!!)
Bracelet: Gift from my mom

Lately getting dressed for work has been a struggle...I am in a professional field and around men in business suits ALL DAY...men and women...but over the past 10 years I have basically decided to LET GO of wearing a suit... a matchy matchy these pants came with this jacket, looking all uptight, type of suit. I have also lost 30 pounds and find myself trying on my clothes in the morning only to remove them and throw them to the side. There is nothing more frustrating than having your clothes not fit..whether too tight or too big.. I am planning a closet haul soon but I am just not motivated or inspired. Until, I got this dress...a "business appropriate" SEXY, MODEST, dress I can wear to work, I can wear out... I wore it in our recent photo shoot and video shoot for Haute Shots!! More about that video in another post, but if you want to see it you can watch it HERE

I have one other custom made dress from eShakti and I know most of you...well most blogger's are very familiar with eShakti...but being a thrifter I get so excited about fun, funky, and interesting items that I forget a staple like this dress. I opted to just choose a size rather than a custom sizing like I did last time and it fit me perfectly!! I plan on wearing this a lot...with a blazer, with tights, as a skirt, as a suit...I was just happy to feel sexy and appropriate for work...If you haven't checked out eShakti you should... They have a large selection  but more importantly they can custom make your dress to fit YOU...SO when it is time to get ready in the morning you will actually put it on and leave the house...You will be seeing me in this dress quite a bit...and I'm ok with that...I may be a thrifter but investing in staple pieces are important...like blazers, the perfect black dress and in my case...SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER haha More of me wearing clothes coming soon!
