A Lady-Like Day With W: The Perfect Little Black Dress

December 3, 2012

Hello Lovely Readers~

Today’s featured item is a dress that I’ve been so excited to show off on the blog! We’d like to thank eShakti for graciously sending us this dress (along with L’s spirited polka dot dress) for styling and review. Just like L, I was able to pick out the dress of my choice, plus submit specific choices on the garment for customization such as hem length. How great is that? It’s like having a custom dress tailor made for you without the steep price tag and in half the time! We could get used to this special treatment very quickly. 

eShakti is an online clothing store that “believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best.” We couldn’t agree more! We found eShakti’s website very easy to use and were impressed with the design, quality and wide array of skirt, top and dress options available.  

Upon receiving this very classic, feminine A-line shirt dress, I knew it would be perfect paired with my chunky pearl bauble necklace and my favorite redish pink lipstick. I loved how comfy this dress was and that it is machine washable. It really is something you can wear year round as it’s perfect to pair with hose and a cardi or sweater once the temps drop.  Tune back into the blog next week to see how I style this dress for a dinner party!  Also, eShakti is running a great promotion for new customers right now. Sign up your email today and receive $25 towards your purchase! You can visit this fresh concept custom clothing store here.  I will echo L’s comment that we are so glad we found this online retailer and have definitely added it to our favorites list!

A Dressy Polka Dot Day with a Pop of Blue!

Hello Lovely Readers~

Today’s featured item is a dress that I’ve been so excited to wear! We’d like to thank eShakti for graciously sending us this dress for styling and review. I was able to pick out the dress of my choice, plus submit specific choices on the garment for customization (such as hem length, sleeve length, etc.). How great is that? It’s like having a custom dress tailor made for you without even having to leave your house! We could get used to this special treatment very quickly. 

eShakti is an online clothing store that “believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best.” We couldn’t agree more! We found eShakti’s website very easy to use and were impressed with the design, quality and wide array of skirt, top and dress options available.  

Upon receiving this lovely dress, I knew a pop of cobalt with shoes and accessories would be just the right finishing touches. I added a leather bomber jacket for a touch of edge (and for the temps that are finally starting to cool around here).  Also, they are running a great promotion for new customers.

Happy Thanksgiving from L&W: Wearing Magenta + Leopard

November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving Lovely Readers~

Today’s look is an easy one for me - my favorite print plus a pop of color. These exact stretch cropped-pants from The Limited are so comfortable, and will be perfect for the day’s eating and other activities. Wearing magenta is on the top of my list at the moment; remember how I styled a similar look in this post? The weather here is staying in the mid 70’s - so no cozy sweaters or boots for W and I.

I’m exited also to show readers several amazing pieces of Stella & Dot jewelry, thanks to Sara Michael, Star Stylist. I’m wearing the Windsor Tassel necklace, layered with the La Coco chain. The gorgeous Chantilly Lace cuff is on my left arm, and right arm is layered with the renegade bracelets  The look is completed with these berry colored Serenity stone earrings. These new accessories are some of my very favorites, and W & I always look forward to styling them! You can visit her site and facebook page to see more promotions and events. 

We hope that everyone has a blessed and relaxing day with your families! We want to take the time to thank all of our wonderful readers for supporting us in writing and styling at The DoubleTake Girls. We are blessed to have you all!

Golden Stripes + The Little Black Skirt with L

November 19, 2012

Hi Lovely Readers~

Today’s post is a “What I Wore” look from Sunday. I picked up this cute, striped top at Forever 21 when I was in Dallas at the end of September (I was even nice enough to get one for W as well…I couldn’t let her miss out on a style steal!!). As you readers know, I’ve been drawn to this warm marigold color all season. I thought it was a great shade to pair with black, gold and leopard.  I love how the combination adds a bit of luxury to the outfit without making it stuffy.  What do you think about this classic color palette?  

Thanks for reading!
