SO EXCITED to be collaborating with eShakti this week. eShakti is this unique little online shop that specializes in customization. They have stylish and trendy clothes that can be tailored exactly to your measurements! Perfect for women like me that might not fit perfectly into standard sizes. Customization further includes sleeve length, neck line, hem length and more. You can make all their apparel fit your style and flatter what suits you best! Seriously, I’m obsessed. Why can’t more stores be like this?

So let’s talk about this amazing dress. Kelly green plaid caught my eye as soon as I saw it and I just had to have it! I know plaid is normally an autumn/winter kind of thing but this bright green transcends right into spring! Plus it has pockets! I am a total sucker for pockets! I just can’t wait to rock it at the horse race track! I lengthened the sleeve so it would be more comfortable for cool spring weather and chose to have the hem hit right above my knee. I felt that this dress gave off a retro vibe, almost like something I would find on Modcloth, so I paired the dress with suede shoes, cat eye sunglasses ($10 steal from TJ Maxx!) and a bold red lip.

The Bare Necessities

I thought on this sad day (because who isn’t sad that ‘merica day is over?) that I would go through my beauty routine. I am not a big make-up wearer, which stems from the fact that I went to an all girls high school, but when I do wear make-up I wear the best products possible. No I am not talking about the most expensive, just the best. I have extremely dry skin. Seriously I would look like a ghost without lotion all over me, so many of the products I use are uber hydrating. I realize that not everyone needs the moisture that I need and if you are one of those people I sincerely apologize and will not take offense if you promptly stop reading. Anyhoo, if you are still with me here are my product must-haves (in usage order):

  1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Seriously I use this everyday!
  2. Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation Primer
  3. Beauty Blender Make-up Sponge I put this particular sponge on here because it lasted me the longest!
  4. Boscia Clear Complexion Tonic
  5. Smashbox Studio Skin Liquid Foundation
  6. Nars Blush in Deep Throat 
  7. Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 And 3…
  8. Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner There’s no need to spend a lot on eye liner! This is by far my favorite! I am partial to liquid liner. I know other people prefer differently. This one is just so precise and easy to apply!
  9. Marc Jacobs Honey
  10. Whatever mascara I decide to try that day. Yeah, I really don’t have a favorite.

I will try to upload a picture soon. I haven’t quite yet mastered the selfie art and I don’t want to scare anyone with my expressions.
