Happy Fall, Y'all! Autumn marks a period of deep reflection for me. Added time is spent journaling, creating, meditating, candle lighting and truly assessing every aspect of my life. As a result, my identified core values play an ever-increasing role in my decision-making processes. For example... When I was contacted by a representative from eShakti about a blog cooperative, it was easy for me to say, "Yes!"
You see, I've had two prior (and very successful) collaborations with eShakti (see the gorgeous eShakti dresses I've featured in the past here and here). Following those experiences, I've even made independent purchases from eShakti, myself (see one of those featured here--in this past post). Plus, eShakti's corporate values resonate with me (I turn down blog cooperatives if they aren't in sync with the quality and social responsibilities I hold near and dear.).
My favorite thing about eShakti (aside from their selection, corporate values, and the quality of their products) is that I can customize any garment ordered. At 5' 4", it's often a challenge to find a maxi dress that doesn't need to be altered professionally after I buy it. With eShakti, I was able to share my height with them when placing my order--making this dress a perfect fit and ready to wear upon arrival (Hooray!!!).
Now, about this dress... I adore it! I'm always drawn to stripes for some reason; so, this one was an especially easy selection (smile). It's the perfect transitional piece for fall. I can dress it up or down. Best of all, this dress doesn't wrinkle easily! Today, I wore my lovely maxi dress semi-casually... Donned it out to breakfast with Mark (downtown); where, afterwards, we visited the local farmer's market to buy pumpkins and gourds to display in the front of our home. And, tonight, I'll sport it to the pub for dinner (Hopefully, we can catch a good football game while there!).
