Houndstooth

- Fashion

eshakti + aupie

When eShakti contacted me to review one of their fall items, I was stoked because I have had such a good experience with them before (see previous posts about their dresses here and here). I decided to customize this mini houndstooth print skirt and make it a midi for a couple reasons. 1). Obviously I can now wear it to work and 2). I LOVE midis. I think they are gorgeous and modest, yet are still sexy. Anyway, once again I am astounded by the high quality of the fabric, the fit and the fact this gorgeous skirt has pockets. If you haven’t yet, you must check out eShakti, especially for your upcoming holiday needs. They make gorgeous dresses, skirts, blazers, etc. From my experience with them, you will not be disappointed!

I also had a chance to try out this Womens V Neck Long Sleeves Black Shirt from Aupie, a Womens Fashion Online Store. I joined their blogger program, if you are interested you should check them out and join the program as well! This blouse has a very soft, silky feel and the faux leather details around the sleeves are the perfect touch to give it more of an edgy feel.

I paired this blouse/skirt with some tall booties from JustFab to complete the edgy feel. And who can resist a good pair of glasses (mine are fake, but sometimes I still wish I wore them because I think glasses are so chic)!?

    Um, hello–you look gorgeous! I just bought a mid-length skirt, and while I have to (have to have to) wear it with heels, I actually love the look. Yours is awesome, and perfect for fall!

    Ooh this skirt was a great choice! I love houndstooth, but I love that it’s not just black and white houndstooth – that’s actually red! It really looks great!

      Oh no, that’s sad :( What did you order? And were you upset with quality, sizing, the way it looked? Just curious because you are not alone! I seriously love all of my pieces, but I am always about giving an honest review of course…. so I want to relay this information to others, especially if it is about a certain product from there!

    I’ve always enjoyed my eShakti pieces! They are so lovely. My cousin even ordered them for her bridal party! I love the bold black and red, and of course the smoking hot boots!

    But could you be any more gorgeous, Rachel? Goodness. You dazzle me. 😉

    And I love that skirt! You’re so brave for sporting a midi! Not because I would think it’d look bad on you (NOTHING DOES, EVER), but because new fashion trends scare me haha. Especially giant, pivotal ones like new lengths in staple pieces. It took me like 4 years to finally jump on the crop pants bus. And I still wonder if I’m doing that trend right… LOL. Love this look though! :)

    I’m impressed how you customized that skirt so perfectly. It looks fantastic on you and you styled it so well with the beautiful black blouse. You look very pretty with or without glasses. Those fake ones look really great on you.
