The Lace-up Dress: 70s Vibes with Modern Appeal

Friday, April 15, 2016

The lace-up dress is so on point this season. Think 70s vibes with modern appeal. And as you know I am a huge fan of all things 70s revival, so the lace up trend is just perfection to me. The lace-up dress is flirty, sexy and flattering and I am particularly loving the Lace-up Poplin Shift Dress from eShakti.

For a recent jaunt through Lincoln Park in West Seattle with friends, I paired the eShakti Lace-Up Poplin Shift Dress with Pons Avarcas Classic Sandals and Gibson Sunglasses from Moorea Seal. I can also see this being the perfect dress for a Spring road trip, a Summer walk at Golden Gardens or a bed and breakfast stay by the ocean. I am already pairing it with sandals (loving this gorgeous Seattle weather!) and anticipate this dress being a closet staple all the way through Fall. At which point I will transition to wearing with tights and boots. Yes, this dress is perfect for layering year round. Hello favorite!

If you haven't heard of eShakti, I'd recommend checking them out. eShakti is the only women's fashion apparel company offering sizes 0-36W and custom clothing. Most (if not all) items are under $100 and they receive new styles each week and all can be customized to fit you! First you pick your favorite design from the eShakti collection (currently available are dresses, tops and pants), than you tell them your measurements and finally customize the item to fit your style. For the lace-up poplin shift dress, I shortened the sleeves from 3/4 length to short and left everything else as shown. Your one of a kind item is than ready in 12-18 days (although I think I received my dress even faster!).

If you're interested in giving eShakti a try, they are offering Story of My Dress readers a very special 10% discount using code thestoryofmydress in the promotional code box at checkout. Code is valid through May 15, 2016 (which also just happens to be my Birthday!).

Happy Spring Shopping!
