EShakti Poncho

December 8, 2014

What is the first thing you think of when you think of eShakti?  Darling dresses, right?  Well, eShakti does have amazingly pretty dresses and I have two that I just adore (posts here and here.).  But this time when eShakti wanted to collaborate, I wanted to try something different from their diverse selection.  What did I pick? This cool, funky herringbone poncho!  

I love the juxtaposition of the boho vibe of a poncho, with the classic twist of herringbone, and then the modern edge with the faux leather trim.

I wanted to wear the poncho alone to show off the lines, but I can’t wait to wear it on a cold day with a cozy turtleneck and/or a cool chunky scarf!  

I love that eShakti asks for your details when they make something for you. Knowing my height (5’7″), they made my poncho the perfect length, long enough to cover the booty, but short enough to show some leg for a flattering silhouette. 

Outfit details:
Boots – Adrienne Vittadini ( DWS)
Jeans – Gap
Earrings – Tiffanys 
Clutch – vintage snakeskin (thrifted)
Sunnies – Readers.com
&
Poncho – eShakti!

Be sure to head over to eShakti to check out their chic selection!

So, how’s the holiday shopping going, Dolls? This bad little Santa finally bought a few presents this weekend.  Why do I keep seeing such cute things for myself when I’m looking for others?  Please tell me I’m not the only one with this problem!

    I would love to work with eShakti, they really have some cool clothes. I love the dresses on you, but this is so chic and I love the grey! You look amazing with the poncho and boots! I always thought you were about 5 ' 11, you carry yourself so well.

    I love ponchos and capes and this is a very classy one! I bet it looks great with a cosy scarf or a faux fur too. It is a pity eShakti don't ship internationally as I really like their dresses.

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

    GOOD FOR YOU for choosing something a little out of the box and styling it so perfectly! I love this poncho on you and the way you paired it. I think ponchos can be a little scary for people because they aren't normally worn, but it is a great way to update your wardrobe (as you've proved!!) And thank you for linkup up with the #reasonstodress linkup pretty lady, hope to have you back next week!
