“Mad Men” Monday

Happy Monday all!

Now that the weather has FINALLY decided to cooperate, I can start wearing my Spring/Summer dresses.  Ever since I got this  Eshakti dress I’ve been dying to wear it.  The dress gives off a very 60’s vibe.  I feel like if I were working at Don Draper’s ad agency on “Mad Men” I would fit right in!   I didn’t have the dress customized but I did size up so it wouldnt be too snug. Sizing up made the dress a little big around the waist and chest but a trip to the tailor will fix that.  The light cotton material is perfect for warmer temperatures and doesn’t weigh you down.  The skirt is lined so you don’t have to worry about wearing a slip.   The next time I order from  Eshakti, I will have the dress customized so I can see if there is a difference in the fit.  Check them out at Eshakti.com.

Have a wonderful day!

    Love the shape of this dress. Have never ordered from eShakti and have heard mixed reviews. Was shipping pretty timely?

      Thank you! With Eshakti you will get a hit and a miss. . They ship the dress after 7-10 business days. They use DHL and the dress usually comes within 3-4 business days.

        Thanks. It was especially fun because my parents were hippies and would have hated this look in the 60s. I felt rebellious.
