Outfit Inspiration: Gray Jeans


LOFT at ShopStyle

Gray jeans were on my fall wish list.  I just ordered these from LOFT.  Normally their modern fit jeans fit me great so hopefully these work out.  My summer off work uniform was white jeans and a gray tee.  I think my winter weekend uniform will be gray jeans, a burgundy sweater and/or white or gray tee and black ankle boots.

eShakti Review

I have been blogging for just about four years now and have never received a product or other compensation (seriously not even a dime - I do use some affiliate links in my posts but they so far haven't garnered any income).  That isn't why I blog though and has never been a goal of mine.  You can imagine my surprise when I was contacted by eShakti to review an item from their site!  I certainly wasn't going to say no to this amazing opportunity to check out this brand I have heard so much about.  My coworker and friend has purchased a few dresses from eShakti.  She raves about them and they look great on her!

I love that you can customize the item especially for you.  I chose a sleeveless dress that I liked the cut and print, but since I don't have any short sleeved dresses in my closet, I had them make it with sleeves.  You can also choose your neckline, length and give them your measurements so it really is made for you (or you can select a standard size).  Oh and did I mention the dresses have pockets?



I chose the Herringbone Print Sash Tied Dress.  I thought the print and cut would really be versatile, especially for fall.  As I mentioned, I wanted sleeves so I customized it to have elbow length sleeves.  I think it would have been cuter sleeveless but I have a gazillion sleeveless dresses.  It came with a matching self belt which I did not have on in these pictures. 

Overall I really like the dress.  The fabric is soft and substantial.  Being petite, I love that I could make any dress knee length (or any length!) on me.  The ordering process was easy and the shipping was quick especially considering I customized the dress and it ships from India.









They don't only have dresses, they do have tops, jackets and skirts as well.  So many different styles to choose from!
