eShakti // Booties, Musse & Cloud // Bag, Vera Bradley
Happy Monday, Fashionistas! I turned the ripe age of 27 over the weekend, so it's feeling like a new year for me. Now that I'm officially in my late twenties, I'm sharing this grown up sweater dress from eShakti, perfect for V-day or any winter cocktail event. I wore it with high-waist control-top tights underneath for a little help smoothing things out (since it doesn't hide much). The site lets you tailor pieces to your exact measurements, which is why the dress is fitted so nicely—it actually doesn't have a ton of stretch. The fabric feels high quality, and most dresses run around $50. The other cool thing about eShakti is that you can customize the garment to suit your needs...For this, I went with long sleeves and maxi length, since I'm always struggling with how to style tights/cardigans in the winter. The package shipped quickly and with a prepaid return label. For anyone interested in trying out a look in time for Valentine's Day (check out some cute hearts day options here), use the code "newenglandromance" for 10-percent off now through Jan. 28.
I want to add a little note about this bag. It was my Great Aunt Beth's, who recently passed away. She was a forever kind, stylish and meticulously put-together woman who always looked her best. She had a lovely collection of Vera Bradley purses, of course in perfect condition, and I'm happy to wear it in memory of her and to keep up the tradition of smart, stylish women in our family.
