Transparent Purse and a Mullet Skirt

I wore my DIY mullet skirt again, but in a new way: with booties and a cardi. Last time I had tall boots, but the outfit was just as bright. And don’t you love the see-through purse? It’s going to be great for spring when I don’t want to carry a dark, heavy-looking bag. I just have to be sure not to carry “embarrassing” items (or put unmentionables in a make-up bag and drop that in this purse).

Cardi: Smart Set

Tights: Nordstrom
Booties: Novacas
Bag: Forever 21
Cuff: Greenbelts

I paired the skirt with my eShakti top. From now through March 25th, you can get $25 off your eShakti purchase by using the code JENFLLTRDE79. Nice!

And these are the Novacas booties I bought at The Chocolate Shoebox before they closed their brick and mortar store. I’ve worn them with pants, but not a skirt. I think they work both ways.

Versatility is important to me and I like to make sure I can mix and match and wear pieces a few different ways, It changes things up so I don’t get bored of the “same old thing” and it really extends my wardrobe.

Do you have certain pieces that you wear lots of different ways?

My eShakti Custom Top

I’m so glad to have had the chance to product test an item from eShakti. All of the eShakti line is customizable and cut when ordered, which means this top was made just for me.

Pants: Just USA
Shoes: Seychelles
Scarf: NYC street vendor
Cuff: Greenbelts
Earrings: Cost Plus World Market

Their line of women’s clothing includes tops and dresses, skirts, jackets and coats–and the variety is huge! It was hard to choose, but I like stripes and I need more tops to balance out all the pants and skirts I have, so the choice quickly became clear.

Even among one type of garment, for example dresses, you’ll find lots of styles: retro, glitzy, wrap–and a whole section devoted to the LBD! Sizes range from 0 to 36 and are reasonable priced. eShakti would be a great option for a bridal party. Luckily, there’s a whole section of their website devoted to wedding wear.

For over seven years, eShakti has focused exclusively on customizable women’s wear. They saw the Internet as a great tool and an opportunity to let women customize and personalize their clothes. That means you can choose your sleeve type, neckline and length. Here’s one dress, cut three ways:

Customizing your order is really reasonable (about $7.50–seriously). Amazingly, custom items are returnable (but I bet you’ll want to keep yours).

I love the idea of customizing clothing. We’re all unique and we all have different fashion needs: work wear, weekend wear, meeting the parents. Even though I didn’t customize my top, it was still made for me. I included my size on the order form, but I also gave my height. I’ve never done that before when placing an order! The result is a top that sits right and is well proportioned.

My top arrived in just a few days. I’m glad a chose this one. I don’t often wear embellished items but the beautiful beading on the shoulder makes a simple top so unique. The gathers and ruching make this more special than an ordinary T.
