Are you familiar with the eShakti online clothing boutique? They make very cool, retro-style pieces that have loads of personality. When they asked me to review one of their dresses (I received it for free, but I promised to be honest), I was more than tickled to do it. I love dresses, especially those I don’t see hanging in the Mall shops.

I chose this charming Colorblock Cotton Knit Dress, in black and crimson. The extra-fun of shopping eShakti is that you can customize your item to your own measurements, and even change up the sleeves, necklines and length to best suit you. I made the sleeves elbow length, for more comfort in the Florida climate. I stayed with the scoop neckline and knee-length hem, but I would definitely try this dress with a boat neck and cap sleeves. It’s well-made and completely comfortable.
I added a very old thrifted belt (similar) to accentuate the waist, retro-style. The lovely pink vintage bracelet (sim) is another gift from my dear friend B; it belonged to his mom and matches the necklace he gave me. The brown Doc Marten boots (sim) are also several years old but still look groovy.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
