  1. What to Wear: It ain't easy being green

    Thursday, June 21, 2012

    Earlier this month, I entered a giveaway for an eShakti dress held by Edmonton blogger Vicki at Adventures in Fashion. I had heard a lot of good things about eShakti and their custom made dresses with retro-inspiration, so I quickly commented and went about my day, never thinking I'd win. Lo and behold, I did! My dress came yesterday and I couldn't wait to give it a test run today.


    It's the same colours as Metro! I should have found a paper box to pose with >.<

    I don't have much green in my wardrobe, so I ended up picking this eyelet shirt dress. It fits me to a tee and is the absolute perfect length! I think my only negative point is that it's a little too low for my liking for work, but I wore a scarf underneath.

    The website is super easy to use, I LOVE that you can input your custom measurements and it shipped (from India) super fast. Their shipping company isn't my favourite, but I'll live.


    The cotton is very thick and is also lined with cotton, which means I can wear it all year!



    These photos were taken at the AGA after work. G and I met up at Edmonton city hall, which is right beside my work, the theatre and the library and snapped these in front of the gallery. It was such a gorgeous day that I just couldn't stand to be inside any longer!

    Edmonton's city hall is beautiful - and it has a giant fountain/pool, which is always busy on hot days (like today) and during festivals (two were happening today in the city, The Works and National Aboriginal Day).

      Love it! You need more green in your wardrobe apparently.

      What a great dress! I love the colour and the fabric. You should def. wear more green :)

    3. That shade of punchy emerald is absolutely gorgeous! It looks amazing with your skin and hair tones, and will look just as awesome come fall with a cardi to help fend off the nasty Canadian chill.
