It's no secret that I adore dresses. They're easy to slip on and always make me feel pretty. And nothing beats a versatile dress, and I'm so glad I got sent this gorgeous knit dress by eShakti, one of my favorite online stores.

I woke up wanting to wear this dress to run errands, so I added a faux leather jacket to it, to toughen it up and dress it down a bit. I love how glamorous the embellishment on the neckline looks, and how I didn't even need to add any more accessories to complete my glam rock daytime look. As the day waned, I decided to curl my hair and add a thin, gold belt to change things up a bit and add a little bit more bling for a dinner out. I love this dress; I can already imagine wearing it as a top or even just as a skirt!

I hope you've taken a gander to check out eShakti's fall collection of dresses. I thought this knit dress really stood out because of the unique color. And to make it my own, I actually customized the length (I wanted it to be a bit over the knee) and sleeve details (cap sleeves for the win!).

  8. I've never tried doing anything custom through eShakti. I have several dresses (and like all but one) I do need to take the next step in our relationship and go custom, though

  11. What a cute dress! I love how you paired it with the jacket and wedges...definitely gives it a tougher look. It's still a great dress without it though!!

  13. I really adore the first photo. So beautiful. I love wearing dresses when I'm all too lazy to dress up and I love the power it has over the wearer. It makes you feel beautiful without even trying. Dresses do have their charm.

    Lovely color and detail, Laura.

  16. Confession time: I'm in love with eShakti and it's all your fault. I never would've found them if it weren't for you. This is a beautiful dress just like so many others they have. I would be all over this offer in a heart beat if they shipped to the UK. I hope they decide to incorporate that soon! You look fabulous as always Laura. ;)

  19. Oh, what a pretty dress! That color looks so perfect with your skin. And the shape of it is ridiculously hot. So polished, but so fun too. The neckline is gorgeous.

    May the force be with you.

  24. Oh my gracious that is gorgeous on you, Laura! And I like your version with the cap sleeves even better than the sleeveless version. Dressing it up and down too -- I need to learn how to do that with more of my clothes (winter is already creeping into Scotland so my "outfits" are scarily turning into sweatpants and flannels -- must resist!). I'm going to the eShakti now, you know, just to browse...or...
    Thanks for the coupon!

  26. Gorgeous dress, it's perfect for holiday parties! The idea of dressing it down with a faux leather jacket sounds awesome too. I love eShakti, I almost wore one of their dresses today!

  27. Wow, this is such a lovely dress. You shine in it, Laura! You're right, the beading at the neckline is glamorous. I really like how you dressed it down with your jacket and then glam-ed it up with the belt.
