eShakti Radiant Orchid Dress Review

::Outfit Details::

Violet Dress in Radiant Orchid ~ c/o* eShakti

Black Cardigan ~ Forever 21

Black Petticoat ~ eBay (Under dress)

Black Lace Hose ~ eBay

Black and Purple Polka Dot Heels ~ Gabe's

Cat Eye Sunglasses ~ Target 

Long Black Wig ~ Anime Stuff Store

Lipstick ~ Lime Crime lipstick in Poisonberry

When the folks at eShakti contacted me about reviewing an article of clothing from their website, I was ecstatic.  I was even more excited when I started browsing their site and found so many beautiful dresses.  I had a hard time picking one.  But, I finally decided to go with this radiant orchid dress.  I am so happy that I picked it because I got so many compliments when I wore this dress to the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh.

When I got the dress in the mail, I immediately got a retro vibe from it.  I have been wanting to do a rockabilly/retro look and here was my chance.  I thought the dress would be perfect with a petticoat to make it a little fuller.  It was still a little chilly out so I paired the dress with a cardigan and lace hose.

My overall opinion of eShakti is very positive.  The dress is very high quality and fit perfectly.  They have a ton of cute dresses and skirts and I highly recommend checking out their site.  Check them out at You can also find them on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.

If you register with their site you will get a $25 gift coupon and today through May 15, you (my reader) can get an additional 10% off your order by using the code punkles.

Sorry I have been absent the past few days and missed a couple of my weekly posts (My life Lately and Makeup Monday).  I injured my neck a few days ago and haven't been up to doing much.  Every movement I made hurt extremely bad.  It still hurts a little, but not nearly as much as the past few days.

My husband thinks my injury is stress related because we have been house hunting.  I have been stressed, but I think the injury happened while I was sleeping in a weird position.  Either way, it has really sucked not being able to do anything.  I was on vacation from work and haven't been able to enjoy being off.

Hopefully, I will continue to improve and get back to normal with my posts.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

If you are familiar with Pittsburgh, you may have recognized that I am in the strip district in these pictures.  I don't live in Pittsburgh, but I have always lived relatively close to the city.  So, Pittsburgh is like my home away from home.  

It is where my husband and I went on our first date.  It's where my husband technically proposed.  I saw my first professional baseball game when I was a baby at Three Rivers Stadium.  I met Barry Bonds there when I was a little older.  I've seen a dozen hockey games in Mellon Arena and Consol Energy Center.  I saw Green Day in concert there and will see Lady Gaga in a couple of weeks in Pittsburgh.

I love Pittsburgh and wish I could do all my outfit pictures here.    

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

April Wish List

1. Rose Print Leggings
I guess I haven't got enough floral items in my wardrobe.  I only have a dress, but that seems like a lot for me.  When I saw these leggings I really liked them.

2. Black and White Stripe Cropped Swim Top and Polka Dot High-waist Swim Bottom
Swimsuit season is almost here and now that I can wear a bikini again, I'd like to get something unique.  I really like the high-waist pants paired with a crop top look.  So, why not try that with a bathing suit.

3. Mint Green Wig
I like my lavender wig so much that I want one in every color.  How about another pastel color for spring?  Mint Green.

4. Faux Leather Joggers
When I started seeing joggers on other fashion blogs, I thought I don't know about this look.  It has grown on me and I really really want these faux leather joggers.  I hope I can pull that look off.

5. White Dr. Martens
I have a pair of black fake Dr. Martens.  I love them.  But, I'd love to have real ones in white.

6. Cut Out Maxi Dress
I use to wear maxi dresses all the time when I was younger.  Then I stopped for a long time.  I would really like to start wearing them again.  I love this one from Forever 21.

7. Jade Green Skater Skirt
I have skater skirts in pretty much every color except green.  I definitely need to add a green skirt to my wardrobe.

8. Long Lace Cardigan
I wanted to buy this cardigan with my gift card from H&M.  But, guess what?  You can't use gift cards online and they don't sell this in stores.  So I didn't get to buy it.
I bought everything off of my March wish list.  I wish I could buy everything on this month's wish list, but I am all shopped out for awhile.  Especially now that we are getting ready to buy a house.  I have to save up some money to decorate my new house.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!
