Since eShakti’s tropical floral print crop top and skirt debuted earlier this Summer I’ve been smitten. So when eShakti contacted me about reviewing one of their items I knew I had to have it. But when it came time to order I got cold feet. I was allowing thoughts about being “too old” for a crop top hinder me from trying something new. I finally decided to practice what I preach and make the trend work for me. I had eShakti customize the set to my measurements and changed the skirt from above the knee to midi length (my favorite!). I’ve had dresses customized by eShakti in the past and this was by far the best job they’ve done. The crop top overlaps with the high waist skirt so my wobbly bits (yes I’m quoting Bridget Jones!) aren’t exposed. I found the skirt a bit too long but a trip to the seamstress will fix that. I’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of the set, especially the skirt. I’m really proud of myself for not giving into negative thinking. If I had stuck to a safe option, I would’ve been kicking myself later on for being a chicken!
What Summer trend have you tried that was a move outside your comfort zone?
Have a wonderful day!
