thursday (eshakti)

 button front circle skirt {c/o eshakti}   jcrew chiffon ruffle blouse {thrifted new}
merona wide black belt {thrifted new}   unlisted black pumps {thrifted}

last month i had the opportunity to work with eshakti who offered me a product from their line to review here on l&s.  i was pretty excited about this, as i was sure i would find a great skirt or dress to add to my work wardrobe that i would also have the option of customizing.  based on the culture of my workplace, i prefer to dress pretty modestly and professionally.  i feel most comfortable when skirts & dresses hit right at my knees and in dresses that have sleeves... and it's hard to find cute dresses that have sleeves! the great part about eshakti is that you can customize sleeve length, collar shape, skirt length, and other factors of the item you're looking to purchase.

i really like this skirt that i chose from eshakti.  the olive green color is one that i am particularly drawn to and i love the flowing little pleats.  i think it's the perfect length.  my only complaint is the right side of the skirt is noticeably longer than the left.  i'm not sure if it's excess fabric or one of the pleats wasn't sewn right.  you can tell the difference in the photo on the left to the photo on the right where my hands are in my pockets and holding up some of the fabric from the inside.

this skirt isn't currently available on the eshakti website, but i encourage everyone to take a look at what they have in stock, especially if you haven't browsed the site in a while.  there are so many beautiful items to choose from!  if you find something you like, eshakti is offering my readers a $20 discount with the code "LITERATELY0811" until 10/31/11.  i'd love to hear if you order anything!
