Hi loves!  This week was absolutely FREEZING.  My sister and I weren’t sure if we’d be able to bare it outside long enough to get these shots, but we made it!  Despite having to suck it up a little, the weather was perfect timing because a company that I was already relatively familiar with, eShakti, offered to send me a coat customized to my measurements.  I had become aware of this company through Instagram and had heard positive things from other girls who shopped from the site.  That being so, I was really curious to try the brand out for myself and give you all an honest review of what I thought.

First, I think the idea of being able to customize something to your body is really revolutionary.  Fit is everything.  When something doesn’t sit on your body right, it just looks wrong.  I was pretty impressed with the quality of the coat.  It was well made, and looked exactly like it was pictured.  I had one minor issues with the button holes being a little stiff at first, but they loosened up after buttoning them and unbuttoning a few times.  As someone who is fairly petite, I thought the length was perfect and it was tailored really well to fit my body.  Also, I’m obsessed with the scallop detailing near the button holes.  I really love the wide variety of vintage inspired pieces that are available online too.  Some of my favorites are here, here, and here.  I think the prices are also very fair, being that each piece is customized to your individual body.  I will definitely be ordering more cute vintage looking clothes in the near future!

Okay, okay, I know I’m a little early, but I seriously love Valentine’s Day!  First of all, pink and red EVERYTHING – need I say more?  Although the holiday is still a month away, the stores have (of course) already started stocking up on festive items, and I had to share some of my favorites.  The best part is that almost everything is under $25!

One of my more recent discoveries has been the cape!  It’s such a great piece to have in your closet because it perfect for layering in a variety of seasons.  In addition, it can instantly dress up something simple like the sweater I’m wearing in this post.  Also, these grey H&M jeans are a MUST buy at $20.  I don’t know what it is about H&M jeans, but I find them to be so comfortable and flattering.  I always get complimented when I wear them.  Owning a grey pair is also a great way to change things up in your wardrobe.  As much as I love classic blue jeans, they can get boring and these are MUCH easier to get away with wearing to the office during my internship.
