Summer Dresses with eShakti

Dress: c/o eShakti  |  Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita (old, similar here)  |  Belt: Smak Parlour  |  Sunglasses: Chanel  |  Watch: Vince Camuto  |  Earrings: Vintage

I love pretty dresses for summer, there's just something so easy & classic about them.  The dress I have on here is from eShakti, a fashion design company that makes custom clothing.  eShakti is a brand with a unique take on fashion, they believe that custom, quality clothing should not be expensive.  Every time you order something from eShakti the dress is cut just for you specific to your height, which is something I have never experienced before.  I have to say that this made a huge difference in the fit of the dress  - everything from the fit of the armholes to to the length was perfect.  Beyond this you can choose to customize things such as the shape of the neckline or type of sleeve you want on your dress or top or even have a completely custom size made for you!  eShakti is really about making the pieces that you order from them exactly what you want.

I have to say the dress they sent me is just fabulous!  It's very luxe & has an overall great quality.  I didn't customize this dress beyond giving them my height, but next time I would definitely like to take advantage of the unique services they offer.  Make sure to stop over & see what eShakti is all about.  You can also find them on Facebook, Pinterest, & Twitter.

Travel Tuesday: Mykonos Part II

Today I have more pictures from my trip to Mykonos to share.  Please pardon my picture dumps, there is really no other way to do this (make sure to check out my tidbits in between the pics!).  Last week a few people had asked where on the island we stayed: we stayed at the Myconian K Hotels, & I highly recommend it to anyone looking to go to Mykonos.  The rooms were great, the pool was fabulous, the staff was super friendly, the food was delicious, & like I said last week the views were incredible.  An overall wonderful place in my opinion & I believe everyone on the trip loved it as well!
I had also mentioned last week that the hotel was just a short walk from a nearby town, giving it an awesome location.  We would walk into the town for dinner at one of the many, many restaurants most nights.  There were also so many places to take in the magnificent sunsets while we were there, which I loved.  One night after dinner there was even a pelican (or I think that's what it was!) walking around town, which was so cool!  
The best food I had on the entire trip was when we were staying in Mykonos.  The fresh fish, gyros, & pizza - oh my!  However the absolute best was the  homemade pasta restaurant we went to that had homemade gluten free pasta.  I wanted to kiss the people at the restaurant when they told me they  actually had gluten free pasta!  No one had gluten free anything in Greece so this was a miracle.  An even bigger miracle was that is was beyond delicious, I'm drooling thinking about it right now.  I took a picture of the business card because if anyone is going to Mykonos they absolutely have to go to this restaurant!
The day we left Mykonos was absolutely gorgeous, but the water was very choppy which I felt on the trip to Santorini!  We took our last few hours on Mykonos to eat gyros, explore the town even more, & take a million pictures because it was so beautiful out.  Then we boarded another giant ferry & made our way to Santorini, which I will start to tell you about next week!

Today I'm linking up with #TrendingTuesday.

From the red carpet to the streets Camilla Belle is always on point with her fashion choices.  She glides easily between classic & more trendy looks, always pulling them off seamlessly.  Camilla's street style is one to watch & pull inspiration from; she favors pretty dresses that create feminine looks.  When she wears gowns they are classic & elegant, making her look super glamorous.  Belle is not afraid to take fashion risks whether it be with embellishments (feathers anyone?) or bold colors & it pays off for her. Allow Camilla Belle's style & attitude toward fashion to influence you when getting dressed - take risks, add a classic twist to your style, overall don't be afraid to try different things & experiment with your style! Here are some of my favorite looks that Camilla has worn.
