Roses are Red, Fall is Blue!

In addition to “marsala” – a new color for Fall, which, to me sounds like a delicious Indian Dish, cobalt blue is here to stay. When I went in to Addition Elle last week I fell in love with this super soft, cozy blue & black cardi. Although the print or weave style is called “Space Dye”, it was totally down to earth 🙂

I pictured myself styling it with a plain black dress, graphic t-shirt, or with denim and boots as shown in this post. The thing with long cardis is that they are so dramatic, flattering and convey this sense of haute style. I’m so glad they are trending, and you’ll see more of them next year too in lace and crochet and beyond.



Not only does it have a hoodie, but it also has POCKETS! Simple pleasures ladies.



To keep the look light and fresh, I chose a basic long white cami, acid wash jeggings and this wide black and blue belt also from Addition Elle (last year) and my favorite over-the-knee wide calf boots by SexyPlus Clothing (designed by Boots by Pamela).


For the accessories, I chose a white Zwarovski necklace and earring set by SexyPlus Clothing (designed by My Beaded Designs), and my triple LOVE INFINITY bracelet set by Pennington’s (last year).




You see ladies, you CAN wear belts and fitted tops even with a belly.


And finally, this selfie to show you the incredible magnifying power of Younique Fiber Lashes by You’ve got to try them – so much easier and more effective than falsies. 


Thoughts? Do you like the look, and are you into the long cardi trend? Comment below, I always love hearing from you.

My First eShakti Experience – I’m Addicted!

Sometimes you just want to order something cute online and be done with it. Especially if you’re an experienced online shopper.

But if you actually take the time to measure yourself (your bust, waist, hips and height) and use eShakti’s easy-to-use custom-design service, you’ll be completely amazed with a perfectly tailored dress. It’s free the first time, and $7.50 for subsequent orders. There is no additional charge if you are not requesting any customization.

My first experience with eShakti blew me away. I chose this majestic maxi dress and custom-ordered the sleeves and the length to suit my 5’1″ height. It was already designed with the gorgeous cut out at the bust and the pockets. Wonderful glorious pockets.


Based on their measurements, I ordered a standard size 18 and the fit was SUPREME!!! In a thick, good quality jersey fabric, it was comfortable but still impressive and could have been easily dressed up with jewelry and heels. For this look, I went in between – a casual zebra print wedge with a vintage style fascinator (for those who don’t know, that’s what you call the pink thing on my head).


The bust cut out was sexy and made me feel like my bust was a presentation – which, it kinda is.




The full circle skirt was oh so dramatic, even when standing still, and yes, even without a perfect lift from the breeze.





So please ladies, I urge you to try eShakti, and let them dazzle you with their quality, designs, and fabulous second-to-none customization option. You’ll feel like a damsel in the pre-Edwardian era where once upon a time, every garment a woman wore was superbly crafted to her resplendent curves.
