Red Riding Hood

eShakti invited me to pick a product from their Spring Collection. This unique color-block dress caught my eye. I loved the billowy skirt, mix of red & black, and dainty sleeves. I also felt the black trim around the waist & sides would help minimize any excess I had :) HaHaHa When I slipped the dress on, I immediately thought of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. That fairytale involves cake, wine, staying on the path and of course a wolf. Well let's just say, I had plenty of cake & wine for my birthday this weekend! HaHaHa And I better not eat anymore or else I won't be fitting into this dress! HaHaHa I ordered my regular size (and it fit), but just know with eShakti you can customize your size (0-36W) and even appearance (sleeves, length, etc) of the dress you pick. Shipping takes about two weeks. I placed my order on February 5th. eShakti shipped it on the 13th and I received the dress on the 16th. I love the dress. I just wish cotton didn't wrinkle so much. HaHaHa This dress is very true to the picture on eShakti's website. eShakti always comes out with new collections. So be sure to follow them on Facebook, Pinterest & Instagram. Now I must be on my way....I've got to stay on the path...The path to the treadmill. LOL

  12. What a lovely dress, Kim! I always think red shades suit you so well. It is a shame cotton wrinkles so much, though - cotton dresses never seem to have a chance!

  37. I hope you had an amazing bday weekend Kim and I love the mix of black and red and it definitely reminds me of the fairytale (involving a wolf) you're talking about. I had a couple EShakti dresses a couple years ago and really liked them. I like that you could wear this dress year round too.

  56. This looks so perfect on you I adore the red and black. I like what I see of this brand. Eshakti asked to collaborate with me awhile ago. I got so excited. Then they told me they didn't realise I lived in Australia and couldn't collaborate anymore...so sad.
