Dots, Studs & Spikes

Blouse: Zara, Skirt: c/o Eshakti, Shoes: c/o Zara, Bag: Coach, Necklaces: c/o Olive + Piper and c/o Maya Brenner, Bracelet: c/o Calico, Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: D&G c/o SmartBuyGlasses

Earlier this winter I showed you a jacket I got from Eshakti and mentioned that while they do custom sizing and fitting, I didn't require it for that piece. This time around, I chose to play around with their custom options a little bit with this skirt, and opted for an above the knee cut rather than the below the knee version it originally came in! How many times do you look at something while shopping and think "I wish this didn't have sleeves" or "I wish this was just a little bit longer" or "I'm between sizes" - Eshakti answers all of these problems with their custom sizing. Pretty neat. A lot of their styles are more retro/vintage inspired than my style tends to be, but every wardrobe can use a full black high waisted skirt!

I've also been wearing these D&G sunnies a ton lately. They've become my go-to daily pair the last few weeks. Sometimes I forget the difference quality sunglasses can make, but when I step outside on a sunny day I'm definitely reminded!

Speaking of which, I'd kind of like to put my sunnies on and have a little nap at my desk. Sleepy, sleepy Tuesday. No one would notice, right? (zonked out in an office chair with sunnies on...?)

Happy Tuesday!

  14. I love what you're wearing! The customization of the shop really is amazing, I love how much you can play around with pieces. I saw a necklace like yours today (the more statement of the two) and talked myself out of getting it. Now I really want to go back and buy it!

  24. that's so awesome that store lets you do that, because just like you said, there have been so many times you wish you could tweak a little thing in a piece. and this outfit is AMAZING, i am loving the very demure but edgy feel to it. adding that skirt with big polka dots and then that spike necklace on top was a stroke of genius. gorgeous!
