Houndstooth

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)!?

Polka Dot Skirt

Found this vintage polka dot skirt at Goodwill back home in Iowa this weekend when I went shopping with my mom… couldn’t be happier with the find and wanted to wear it right away back to work yesterday! It is cute, comfy and a great transitional piece for when the weather starts to get colder. This blouse is one of my favorites and you can look for a range of similar ladies blouses online too. Happy Wednesday 🙂

Sparkle & Shine

I wore this outfit to my first Lia Sophia party, which was an absolute blast (and I bought WAY to much jewelry and drank too many margaritas!) My brooch is from Lia Sophia (seen here) and pinned on my grandmother’s vintage necklace, it went so perfectly with my pleated maxi! I recently decided why can’t I wear a little sparkle and shine to work as well?! I certainly would probably add a denim blazer or white blazer for some more sophistication, but since I don’t meet with clients and sit at my desk all day, day time sparkles with a classic pair of pumps seems appropriate to me!
