pin-spired with my eShakti dress

A few weeks ago, an online women’s clothing company called eShakti e-mailed me about doing a review for one of their items of clothing. I jumped at the chance, pulling up dozens of tabs on my computer screen of pieces that I liked.

Although there were some gorgeous sleeveless options, it is February in Pennsylvania, so I narrowed down my favorites to this red (perfect for Valentine’s Day) dress with ruched elbow-length sleeves. It is the “Red goddess knit dress”, currently only $41.95.

eShakti offers custom alterations! I could have just chosen a standard size (0 to 36W), but I opted to do custom sizing—entering all of my measurements to have the dress made perfectly for my body. Not only that, I could choose the length of the skirt (from short to mid-calf), and the length of the sleeves (from a cap sleeve to three-quarter).

It came very quickly after I ordered it—and it was perfect.

But how do I style this red dress for winter? I referred to Pinterest, and found these images of inspiration: black tights, black heels, black blazer.
