If there’s one thing I’m bad at, it’s clothes. Getting dressed in civilian attire confounds me. When I was in college, I worked at the mall so I had store discount and I was pretty stylish. Fast forward to now – 7 years later(!) – I spend most of my days in uniform and so when I’m in normal clothes, I never want to spend a lot because I only wear them a couple days a week.
Now that I’m going back to traditional reserve duty (think 1 weekend a month), I need some real clothes. Except I don’t know what fashion is anymore.
I was contacted by eShakti to try one of their dresses and I was super excited. I wanted to get a dress that I could dress up or down, so I could go to Target or go on a date. I also wanted something that would fit me now, grow with the bump, and still look good once baby gets here. A tall order I know, but you know what? They totally delivered!
Ordering dresses online can be daunting for me because I have a weird shaped body. Despite having two kids, my hips still think I’m 12 and so I have very little curves. eShakti offers dresses straight from the rack, or you can give them your measurements and they’ll custom fit it just for you. I chose to do a custom fit and the bodice of the dress fits like a glove. Custom measurements for the win! The dress part is flowy enough to accommodate my bump now, and in the future, and it won’t look bad once I’m not pregnant anymore. I’m definitely sold on this one. See? You didn’t even know that bump was there!
Here’s a close up of the detailing, I love it. When I was shopping their selections, I wasn’t sure if any of these clothes were for me but really, I’m 28, I’m allowed to dress up nicely and not just live in Old Navy jeans and t-shirts. We all have to grow up eventually I guess. 😛
