Classic Style – Review

eShakti. // 10.26.14

Dress: eShakti; Shoes: Louboutin.

Bracelets: Nordstrom.

The fabric of this dress is great. Very comfortable and the fit is amazing.

Love the pockets.

Love the details.


Dress: eShakti; Shoes: Louboutin.

I recently received a dress from online custom clothier eShakti. In my unbiased opinion, I must say I had a pleasant experience. I gave them my measurements, chose the dress style online and received it in the mail about two weeks later. The dress itself is a little tricky to get on at first, but once on, the fit is great. The fabric is slightly heavier – very cottony, so you if you like a cotton fabric, this dress is for you. I love the style – it’s very 1960s-classic chic. I can see wearing it to a dinner party or possibly to tea. I paired it here with some nude Louboutin pumps. Overall, I really like the dress, the fit and the fabric. The style is exactly what I was looking for, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a dress with a custom fit.

Floral Frock

Sunday afternoon at the ballet. // 10.26.14

Dress: Free People; Shoes: Louboutin.

Perfect fall floral dress.Love a classic, nude Louboutin.

Love the pattern on this dress.

Obsessed with these sleeve buttons.

So elegant.

Dress: Free People; Shoes: Louboutin.

If you live in Chicago, you know the past few days have been BEAUTIFUL! Like 70 degrees and sunny. I totally wouldn’t mind all of fall/winter being like this. I went to the ballet Sunday afternoon, and, since it was so nice out, wore this floral dress from Free People. Both the muted color and the long sleeves made it perfect for fall. And how about those buttons on the back and sleeves?!

Sweaters & Scarves

Weekend in Michigan. // 10.19.14

Sweater: Free People; T-shirt: H&M; Leggings: TopShop; Boots: Hunter.

Scarf: Akira Chicago.

I bought this scarf last year from Akira, and it was hands down the best purchase I made all winter. So warm, so cozy and the fall colors are so chic! It's like wrapping a sweater around your neck.

Highly recommend Hunter boots for a fall hike.

Fall life.

Gorg Michigan foliage.

How amazing is this?

 Sweater: Free People; T-shirt: H&M; Leggings: TopShop; Boots: Hunter.

Ok, yeah, I like fall — as you can probably tell from my last few posts. This past weekend, the guy and I went up to the lakehouse in Michigan for a little fall R&R. We hiked in the woods, along the beach and I enjoyed all of it in this super cozy new sweater from Free People and my ALL TIME FAVORITE scarf from Akira. It’s so cozy I can’t even begin to tell you.

Fall Farm Chic

Sunday in Wisconsin. // 10.12.14

Jacket: Joie; Scarf: Rag & Bone; Jumper: Wildfox; Jeans: Hudson; Boots: Hunter.

Obsessed this jacket -- it's warm enough for those chilly 50-degree days, but not too heavy.

Fall chic.

Sunglasses: Chloe.

Broke out the Hunters for the first time this year.

Literally in love with this scarf -- it goes with almost anything.

Perfection -- and, yes, I took this photo.

Jacket: Joie; Scarf: Rag & Bone; Jumper: Wildfox; Jeans: Hudson; Boots: Hunter.

Took a day trip up to Wisconsin this weekend to enjoy the fall. It also gave me the opportunity to break out my Hunter boots for the first time this year as well as my new favorite fall jacket from Joie.
