This past weekend, Fins and I attended an Open House at my headmaster's house. We are (read: I am) never sure what exactly to wear to these kinds of fancy/semiformal/wine-drinking-hors d'oeuvres-eating shindigs, so I opted for semi-casual-formal and thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this gorgeous little dress that eShakti sent over from their spring line. I also plan to wear this to a bridal shower this coming weekend -- so if any attendees happen upon this post before Saturday, act surprised, okay?
I fell head-over-heels for this dress because it reminds me so much of my Jason Wu for Target dress--same silhouette, same amazing fit, and complete with pockets! So, if you missed out on the Jason Wu Poplin dress (and you highly regret it), eShakti has some awesome options that are so similar (red/blue poplin, white with yellow polka dots, and a purple one similar to mine)--and I want them all. It fits like a glove--I sent over my measurements and eShakti made it perfect-to-order. And, eShakti was nice enough to provide a 20% (!) discount on your order by using the code LNGTHELNES at checkout (ends March 10th). Win-Win.
Yes, it's true that I kind of broke my no-c/o streak. I intended to buy a nice spring dress to wear to multiple functions, so I justified it by saying that I'd probably buy this dress (or another dress at some point) anyway. Don't be too mad at me, okay? Because...I may or may not have something in the works for all of you soon. :)
Side note: I was in the process of falling over in the second picture up there. I didn't actually fall, but it made for an okay picture...!
