Sorry I've been M.I.A., guys! Life has been a little crazy.
I got the news on Friday that my grandfather passed away. He had Alzheimer's disease. He was 81 when he died. My grandparents, along with most of my family, live in the middle of nowhere, Mississippi. The husband had a weekend full of studying for his last CPA portion. Then we headed to MS Sunday and came back Monday night. The funeral was Monday. I took the day off to recoup yesterday.
In the midst of the sadness we were supposed to find time and energy to celebrate our 2nd anniversary Monday. We spent it at my grandfather's funeral. Definitely not the ideal date. But I was happy to be among my family that we don't see often. We exchanged gifts on Friday and had a few cheap dates over the weekend to make up for it.
Husband got me a gorgeous Michael Kors watch (you can kinda see it below). I got him some Bose earbuds and personalized autographed football from Jonathan Vilma. Our company is considered the "Preferred Dental Office of the New Orleans Saints." So we got him to do a promotion for the LSU school of dentistry with us. So I had him sign an official NFL Saints Superbowl Champions football, "to Matt, Jonathan Vilma #51." He almost died! He absolutely loved it. I was pretty proud! Last year I did a boudoir photo session and made a book for him! What the hell do I do next year to top both of those?!
So anyway, that's where I've been lately. I felt so disconnected from the world although it was really nice to celebrate my grandfather's life with my family.
On to the reason for this post!
I was contacted by a rep from eShakti about a month ago asking if I would be interested in doing a review for them. I had actually heard about the company on a few other blogs. I loved their concept so I said yes immediately!
You can customize your items or order them by size. You can change the neckline, the hem, the sleeves, etc... It's really a great idea!
I was totally overwhelmed because I wanted to pick something good! They really have a lot to choose from. And as a bargain shopper, their prices are very reasonable too.
I took my time picking my item. Then I had husband measure me and I submitted my measurements on aa easy online form. Then within 2 weeks I got an email stating that my product had shipped and I got it in 2 days.
I was so excited to get it. I tried it on immediately. It fit like a glove, the material is really soft, but durable. I was pleasantly surprised because the dress is actually a lot dressier than it looked on the website. But that is a good thing! It came with a spaghetti strap on the other side. But I wasn't crazy about it so I tucked it in. But me being me... I had to add a belt. And then I felt like it was perfect and very "me".
I feel like this dress is perfect for a daytime dressy event, like a shower or daytime wedding. Or even a casual night wedding. There are so many vibrant colors in the dress too, which I love.

*Please excuse my messy hair. I dunno what was going on there.
If you register for their emails they will send you a coupon code for $20 off your first order. I am still trying to decide what to order with mine. I'm thinking real hard about the sweetheart dress. The whole process was easy and painless. The dress is great and just as I wanted. I highly recommend this company!
*I was not compensated for this review. But eShakti did provide me with this dress.
