Holiday Dressing

You may have noticed yesterday a certain floor length skirt with enchanting embroidery growing down the side of it. If you didn't you should scroll down now. This skirt is in fact from the new online store eShakti, a clothing company dedicated to custom clothing. What does that mean exactly? Well you choose what you want ranging from dresses, tops, skirts, and jackets and then you send them your measurements and they make the piece custom to fit you. That's right, you heard/read me correctly. The clothing isn't even made until they know what your size is and then they start sewing. So I'm sure many of you have thoughts of outrageously expensive prices coming to mind right now but in fact mostly everything is under $100, and that's including shipping.

When I discovered eShakti I immediately knew that this skirt was meant to be mine. I'm one who loves wearing full length skirts during winter months. For one they actually keep me warmer than jeans or pants, secondly it's almost impossible to be uncomfortable in them and thirdly they go great for any kind of holiday party you may be attending this month. Even though I haven't attended any of my own I did lounge around my dorm room and snapped these photos until I have a more appropriate event to wear this beauty to. Oh, and did I mention this skirt has pockets?!  Holy shit, I know.

Since I probably won't get to actually experience snow this year (although I'm crossing my fingers and toes that when I visit my family in the Appalachian Mtns the snow gods will reach out to me) I decided to create a fake snow experience as seen above via photo shop. Moving me into this next picture below, I know it doesn't really go with those above I still really enjoyed it and just wanted to share it with you all. I don't know why, there's just something about this photo that really speaks to me on an emotional level. I try to make sure that all my photos do that but it doesn't always happen. This one though, there's something I can't quite put my finger on about it and I think that's what makes it all the more intriguing.
