To say that I only have one problem would, of course, be absolutely ridiculous. Straight up bull shit, if we’re being honest. The bulk of my many imperfections, however, can be traced to a single issue.
It’s been a few months since I first shared my statement skirt obsession with you, and I still haven’t quite recovered. Luckily, I found the eShakti Dahlia crinoline skirt and fell in love. Two Nordstrom employees even stopped me to ask where I got the skirt while I was in the store shopping. If that’s not high praise, I don’t know what is.
The we-customize-anything concept of eShakti (size 0 – 36W) means every woman can find something they feel great wearing. You select the details of any style on the site. Don’t like cap sleeves? Ask for three-quarter length. Do you like more cleavage than a boat neck offers? Pick a deep scoop neck.
I chose to get make the skirt a bit longer than its standard length because I think my knees are weird and feel more comfortable when they’re covered. Don’t judge me. When I tried it on, it landed exactly where I’d wanted it to and the navy color was very close to what I expected after scouring photos from the eShakti site.
Full disclosure: eShakti gave me the Dahlia crinoline skirt in exchange for writing about their site, but all opinions are my own and not influenced by the partnership. You know I always got your back, boos.
For a bridal shower, I toned the skirt down with a white blouse and the softest white denim jacket I’ve ever felt in my life. I think next time I’ll pair it with a graphic tee and sparkly necklace when I go for my round of dinner and drinks with the girls.
My brother and I began our annual conference on what to buy as a Mother’s Day gift over the weekend, and it caused minor pangs of panic. Of course, she’ll like anything I get her – that’s what mother’s do! – but I want to get something she’ll love.
Over the years we’ve dabbled in an array of gifting genres: spa visits, cheesy coupon books, new purses – anything that Mom had mentioned or paused at in a mall. The tricky part is to get something before she buys it for herself! (This is a trait I’ve inherited, not gonna lie.) I’ve learned there are three categories that lead to a successful Mother’s Day gift.
