eShakti. // 10.26.14
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.

Sunday afternoon at the ballet. // 10.26.14
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?!
Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria. // 9.27.14
Dress: Akira Chicago; Necklace: H&M; Shoes: Louboutin.
I enjoyed a very nice date night with my guy this weekend. We went over to Balsan at the Waldorf Astoria for a cheese plate, some champagne and good conversation. I wore a new dress I recently got at Akira and paired it with my classic black Pigalle Louboutins. Nothing like accidentally matching the decor!
Afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel Chicago. // 8.13.14
Dress: Madewell; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban; Sandals: Sam Edelman; Bag: Henri Bendel; Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Afternoon tea at the Peninsula is something my mom and I have been doing for years. For this outing, I decided to wear a bright blue dress by Madewell — perfect for an afternoon of tea and pastries.
