Watch What I'm Wearing

I love love love my new eshakti skirt!  It is most definitely my favorite thing in my closet.  High waist, layers, and don't forget pockets, what else could a fashion blogger ask for?  Even both my daughters agreed by telling me I looked like a princess.  I got more compliments on this skirt the one day I wore it than I can remember getting in a long time.
Skirt: eshakti  shoes/necklace: f21  shirt: Rue 21

Even looking at these pictures I can tell how well it fits me.  And the fit is probably the most important part of any article of clothing.  You wouldn't wear something way to big or way to small regardless of how amazing it was.  With eshakti you can input your exact measurements and get a dress perfectly tailored to fit you.  You can also customize things however you want.  For example this skirt is knee length.  But it is also available in short, above the knee, below the knee, and mid-calf.  I couldn't decide between knee length or below the knee.  I liked the knee length look but I really wanted to make sure it hit more at the bottom of my knee.  So I went ahead and ordered it in knee length but I put my height in at 5'6" instead of 5'4 1/2" giving me that extra inch in length  making it just perfect.
I've only worn this skirt once so far, but I can almost feel all the possibilities.  It so so versatile I had a hard time choosing how to style it.  In the end I went with a flower lace shirt and nude heels in honor of spring. 
The back has a small bit of elastic making sure it still fits me even after I eat a huge piece of chocolate cake.
This skirt is just so fun I wanted to twirl around in it all day.
