Finding Modest Clothing

esh11111 esh11
Let's be real here, finding modest clothing, isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world these days. I do find it important to dress modestly. Personally, modesty for me is a form of self respect. It's having the confidence to say, " I don't need to flaunt myself to the world in order to feel beautiful." There is such a classy elegance about a modestly dressed woman.. 

With that said, the biggest difficulty I find when searching for a modest piece is short length. I am a very tall gal, 5'11" to be exact. Dresses are virtually impossible to find in a length that I like. So when a company comes along like eShakti, you bet your stilettos I'm all aboard! I first discovered eShakti about a year ago, when they contacted me about a collaboration. Now listen here, Girls... every one of their dresses can be customized to your measurements, your desired length and even your neckline/sleeve style of choice! I have never received an eShakti dress I didn't love for that very reason. And the dresses are made in the US. What's not to love? Not to mention, browse their website for a moment and you will see just how adorable their designs are. The pictures above features a few of my favorites as of the moment, but there are so many pieces for so many different styles. I don't normally post about specific companies or promotions, but I made an exception this go 'round because eShakti is truly a company that I love and believe in. They just re-launched with a whole new website and lookbook filled to the brim with stunning pieces. eShakti is offering each of you a $35 giftcard, so be sure to make use of it! Use the code "ALTES35" at check out. The code is only valid until July 10th, so don't miss out!

Love Don't Die

IMG_0117 IMG_0135

Well, perhaps love don't die (quoting the fray ;) but roses sure do. These beauties were standing on their last leg, but I thought I'd try and snap a few pics with them before their final hour. These are the lovely graduation roses that my mom gave to me last week.

I've been busy finding the balance between my retro style and modern trends lately. I have a love for both, so when I stumble across pieces like this organza skirt from Romwe, I get pretty excited ;) This piece makes such a fun, yet classy statement. Not to mention, white is the perfect Summer color for mixing and matching. I paired it with this pink Romwe blouse for a touch of girly color. Ladies, I have a confession. I'm not sure what's come over me. I suddenly have a slight obsession with pink. As they say in Funny Face, "Think Pink!"
