I love fashion. Dresses, pants, and accessories…oh my. But to be honest, I don’t do as many outfit of the day posts as I would like. Its not because I don’t have the clothes or the time. I just feel more comfortable on the other side of camera. And, I tend to be overly critical of myself. Can anybody relate?
But this year, I really wanted to push myself and step out of my comfort zone (a little). So I’m going
to try to do more OOTD posts. And I’m starting today with this cute little dress I picked out from eShakti.
Dress: C/O eShakti
Jacket: American Eagle
Boots: Steven Madden
I totally had fun with this dress. It is comfortable and the fabric light enough so you can layer it but heavy enough so you don’t need a slip. The first time I wore it was to a Christmas dinner and I kept it on the dressy side. But yesterday, I wanted to see how it looked dressed down. The first look I wore all day, the rest are just little variations I has fun with.
What I like about eShakti is that you can fully customize your items. If you happen to have big boobs like me, then you will really appreciate this. The days of buying a larger size and taking it to a tailor are over. Plus, you can change hemlines and sleeves too. AWESOME! And…you can get $25 off your order for signing up with eShakti. Winning!
Oh I almost forgot…this baby is machine washable. Which was important to me because tuition and dry cleaning bills don’t mix. I just washed it in cold water and hung it to dry. The label says you can put it in the dryer but I like to hang dry my color clothes.
So, how did I do on my first OOTD of this year? Good, I hope. How are you stepping out of your shell this year?
P.S. This song is awesome. LOVE!!

I really like that dress it is adorable. You did great on your first OOTD! I love the first photo of you looking into the mirror.
I really love that red dress. Great photos! I wish I could do these types of posts but I am awkward in front of the camera and tend to just smile. lol
thanks Jennifer. I felt really awkward too. Plus I was by myself using the tripod. I kept hoping that my neighbors wasn’t watching. lol.
I love that dress! It looks amazing on you! Good for you stepping out of your comfort zone :).
Thanks Faith. I’m going to try to do this more often.

That dress looks absolutely amazing. I love the color, shape, length, EVERYTHING!
You should definitely get our of that zone more. Your first OOTD post was fantastic!
Thanks Savannah. I’m trying to get over this camera shyness. I’m thinking of doing those what I wore post and linking up in Wednesdays.

Tranae, you definitely did a wonderful job on your post. I wish I had cute clothes like that to play around with. Regardless, I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying to become more fabulous over the next year. I have been stuck in a rut for far too long and want to look better so I can feel better. (BTW, I’m a Southern Girl myself, just transplanted to WA now) 🙂

Super cute! That color is gorgeous! I got an offer from them and when I *finally* decided on something a week or so later the link didn’t work =[
