After my review of eShakti (read here), I decided to treat myself to another eSkakti dress. I couldn’t resist the whimsy of this sweet dress with the embroidery detail. That the birdcages reminded me of Maya Angelou who has recently passed somehow seemed fitting as well. As a high school English teacher, I often read with my class from “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” as well many of Angelou’s wonderful poems.
I love that when you order from eShakti, you can customize your garment. This dress was shown knee length, but I’m so in love with the midi length right now that I ordered it longer. What do you think?
I added a pop of pink with the handbag …
(Not quite sure what my hair is doing here, but let’s pretend it’s on purpose!)
I have a lightweight cardi that matches the embroidery, which would be nice to add for a cool evening.
Or a cool morning! I think the dress would be cute with flats for teaching. (Only 3 more weeks until school starts back for us, but let’s not talk about that!)
How much do I love having dresses with pockets?!
I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite Angelou quotes …
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.”
