I blogged a few posts ago about my eShakti denim dress order. The dress came in a few weeks ago, and after washing it to get the wrinkles out (I'm constantly impressed with how tiny a box they can package a dress in, since it has to come all the way from India), I thought I'd show you it in all its countrified glory.
To be fair, I'm only joking about how Texas it looks. In reality, it's a soft and thin (but not transparent - think summery and breezy) chambray. The mustard colored thread detailing, and the brass buttons, are really what makes this dress look denim, not the fabric weight.
OHAI I DINT SEA U THAIR
I love the full skirt, the tailored look, and how it fits loosely enough to be comfortable and skim over my backfat rolls, but not too loosely as to look sloppy.
I paired it with my Pikolinos oxfords, and my dollar-bin brooch. I didn't want to do cowboy boots because I didn't want to push the look over the edge, and I think any more accessorization would also have been too much.
Overall, I'm really pleased with it, and I also think I've nailed the eShakti sizing now - I'm pretty much a solid 20W in their dresses, as I've had several now of that size that have worked out well for me.
Model measurements: 5'7 or 8", 250ish, 46/42/55 (and still growing) :)
