Bestie Borrow

Hi Guys,

The beautiful girls over at Shop Mamie are hosting a Bestie Borrow competittion and I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate. 

I recieved this amazing dress from them and had the opportunity to style it up and then pass it on to my bestie so that she could style it in her own creative way.

First of all I'm going to show you the front and back of the dress on it's own here.'s the back of the dress

Really cute right?!!  I styled the dress below............................................

And this is my bestie Satako (who always blows my mind with her outfit combinations)!

We both had so much fun styling this flirty little dress!  Be sure to check out the entire Bestie Borrow segment at Shop Mamie ;)

e-Shakti Review

I first heard about e-Shakti last year (I believe it was) when it seemed that bloggers all over the place had been contacted to do a review for this amazing clothing company.  The very cool thing about the clothes that you can buy from e-Shakti is any item on their website that you might fancy can be made to your particular specifications.  Do you prefer a v-neck to a round neck?..............Do you prefer cap sleeves to 3/4 sleeves? ..........Are you sick of buying blouses that fit everywhere else but doesn't accommodate your chest?  None of this is a problem for e-Shakti and incredibly enough, the price for these personally tailored pieces is not going to cost you an arm and a leg.

When I received the dress that e-Shakti sent me to review, I inspected it very carefully.  The quality was  wonderful and it put me in mind of Ann Taylor or White House Black Market items without the sticker shock.

The first pictures are to show you how the dress fits me (e-Shakti went off my exact measurements).  The rest of the pictures were just fun..............(You know I couldn't try something on without styling it)! Lol
I've been dying for a dress this color since none of the other ones I've bought have worked out.
The little smile on my face here means I've just discovered this dress has pockets! Yay
Back and Side Views

And now for the fun part!

Heidi Girl was quite taken with the dress herself!

In case you guys didn't notice, I wanted to point out that not all of my outfits this week were exactly "office appropriate".  This could mean one of two things............1. I'm on vacation  or 2. I've officially received my work at home status and finally get to wear whatever I'm in the mood for! 

If you guessed  #2 then you win the prize!  .......(Actually, there is no prize but it's so exciting, I feel like I've just won something)!!

Now is the time to come up with a mantra for while I'm working to keep me focused ..............."I will not play in my closet all day, I will work at my desk.............I will not play in my closet all day..........".

Right!  Good luck with that, right?! Lol

Recent H&M Finds

I drove two hours Sunday to go shopping at our "local" H&M!  Lol  I went specifically after the polka dot pleated accordion skirt worn by Jean and Tara.  Sadly, the shopping fairies were not with me since the only sizes they had left ranged from size 6 to 10 and I'm pretty sure the 2 would fit me the best......(although I definitely would have tried on a 4 if it had been available for sure).

(Anytime you happen to see me in this skirt, expect me to be twirling) Lol

All was not lost however, I found this amazing skirt, sweater and shoes! The shoes are a soft orange suedette and are the perfect transitioning piece for my fall wardrobe. I actually took a display apart in order to try them on. The size says 5 but they fit just like my usual size 6. The skirt is a small, not extra small because I wanted the top of the waistband to hit just below my belly button. The sweater is an extra small and comes in two other colors, both neutrals.

Don't worry, I'll still be doing my outfit recap for this week.  I just wanted to show you guys a few of the pieces that are available right now at H&M if you were debating an upcoming shopping trip.  Other recent H&M items can be seen on Annie as well.

Ciao Lovelies ;)
