Winter is gradually coming to an end or so we hope. Here in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) where I live, winter can stretch way into spring and with the amount of snow we are having right now plus the amount of sub temps days, this might end up being one of our worst winters yet. Nonetheless, it's not too early to start prepping for spring. The first step in doing this is to do a closet overhaul and donating or throwing out items that are no longer needed or useful, then buying those closet essentials that are trendy and affordable to help us stay stylish all through the year. Below are the items I wish to add to my closet this winter and some of the items are great too to give out as gifts to girlfriends, sisters, daughters or Moms. Let's not forget Mothers' day is coming up too.
Snake Print pleated Skirt:
This is a print that is a big trend this season and when you combine it with pleats, nothing can be so edgy or stylish for any fashionista lady. The snake print skirt can be dressed up or down for work and for play and if you need some style inspiration on how to style it for Church or other formal events like weddings, Christenings, check out this post here. The featured skirt in my wish list is from H.M
A good pair of colorful pump in a color of your choice is great for sprucing up your spring and summer wardrobe. If you are one who loves to wear neutral shoes all the time, this might be the time to do something different and by infusing some color into your wardrobe. A colorful pair of shoes elevates an outfit and your style. Check out the featured purple pumps here.
eShakti FX is now on Amazon! eShakti is one of my favorite online shops to shop for dresses and special occasion outfits and I have done a couple of collaborations with the brand in the past. I signed up for brand e-mails to get first hand information about sales and promotions and I get really excited whenever there is anything new on the site. I wrote a blog post last year to announce a new customization feature on the website known as eShakti FX and you can read about the previous post here. The recent news is that eShakti has launched this new customization feature (eShakti FX) on Amazon and this is really exciting if you are familiar with the brand. This means that it's going to be a lot easier to shop eShakti now because we all know Amazon is the world's largest retailer.
If you still need some clarity about this customization feature, I'll love to tell you about it. It is a tool that allows you to style any outfit on the website that has the FX feature. This means you can change the neckline of an outfit, the sleeve length and the length and you can see the changes (style) on the model image as you make them. For example in the red asymmetrical dress listed A below, the sleeve length is "cap sleeves;" when you change the sleeves in the drop down button customization box (during the ordering process on the site) to "three quarter length," you can see the change visually on the model's image. When you change it from B to sleeveless, you see the style on C.
