Try as I might, I am not a girly girl. In a year and a half of blogging, I have only written ONE fashion-related post (and seeing as how I am an all-or-nothing kind of girl, I went all the way with that one!). While I am drawn to and admire the medley of fashion blogs out there, more often than not, I lurk quietly in the sidelines because I feel out of my element. I like pink, I like ruffles, I like sparkly things as much as the next girl, but in reality, I sport slippers, shorts and cotton tank tops 6/7 days a week. Braids and a baseball cap is my go-to hairstyle and I like--no, LOVE--boyfriend cut jeans and sweatshirts. So NOT sexy.
But as fate would have it, while looking for an article online today, my eyes were drawn to an ad in the sidebar for eShakti and curiosity got the best of me. I clicked on the ad, found myself in a sea of classic dresses and a little gasp actually escaped from me. Ohh, the prettiness. Beautiful dresses with empire waists and A-line cuts to flatter the pear-shape that is me. Classic, feminine and a maybe even a little bit retro. Me like. What did I find? Well, allow me to show you!
It's been a while since I went shopping - oh wait, I did buy a pair of shoes last week (purple suede flats that are impractical out here, but so very cute) but aside from that, I'd like to think I deserve a little treat every now and then. As any girl would do, I thought it appropriate to do a little damage. The upside to a shopping spree? A $20 dollar credit on first-time orders and FREE shipping on purchases over $100. Cakewalk!
I may not ooze style and grace, but there's a girly-girl hidden in here, somewhere. And I kinda feel like she's dying to come out.
And tonight, I painted my nails and added a little rhinestone embellishment. We'll see how long I can keep this up. :)
