Anchors aweigh!

I don’t typically do outfit posts, but this skirt from eshakti is too fun not to share. I wore this yesterday–it was terribly windy, and the lighting is too bright, as I took photos early in the morning before I sat at my desk and wrinkled the skirt. Ah, well. Lessons learned for future photo shoots.

This is the fourth item I’ve purchased from eshakti, and I have to say, the more I buy from them, the more I like them. I love the customization options. In this skirt, for example, I removed the pockets, as I’m already wide at the hips and tend to catch pockets on the handle to the screen door as I’m running in and out of the house. I’ve also been impressed with the quality and attention to detail in their clothes. Both the dresses I’ve bought have lingerie fasteners to keep bra straps in place, which I wouldn’t expect for that price. I’ll highlight those dresses in future outfit posts.

As I’ve mentioned before, I have very little in the way of actual vintage clothing, for a variety of reasons. I tend to buy modern clothes with a retro vibe and accompany them with vintage accessories. This outfit is a pretty good example of that.
