Rainy November

Vintage Brooch.
Pink Loafers: Thrifted.
Lipstick in MAC's Please Me.

Hello sweet ladies and gents!
Peacefully writing to you from my cozy dorm as the rain steadily falls outside. I just had a large cup of French Vanilla latte in one of my favorite thrifted mugs, so now I'm all abuzz with excitement. These photos are from today and taken in the drizzling rain--which I both loved and hated. I love rain dearly but not when trying to take outfit photos and certainty not when my hair looks half way decent for once. Well, there goes that.

I was so excited to wear this outfit today! I don't wear vintage silhouettes much like I used to, so this new dress courtesy of Eshakti is marvelous. I've learned through fabric class what an incredible fabric poplin is, so I'm thrilled to finally own a nice, sturdy, basic shirt dress in it. The shape is a to die for subtle nod to the 1960's, and I customized the sleeve length to my liking. I've reviewed a lot of Eshakti dresses over the years and have never been let down. They're having a 35% off store wide sale right now so it's definitely worth a check a roo.

Oh! And one more thing before I go. I picked randomly the two winners of the MAC lipstick giveaway and they are Lauren Issac and Rachel Porter! Thank you so much to everyone who entered ♥

With much love, Lauren.

I love your tights and those loafers! And ugh, rain and my hair don't mix in the least. My curls flatten and get frizzy, it's just awful.

EShakti dresses are so awesome. I love their custom sizing so much. It's great for short people like me! This one is so gorgeous on you and super classic. I feel like you'd be able to get a ton of wear out of this dress over the years. The pin you wore with it is gorgeous too.

Your dress is definitely a successful nod to the '60s. Shirt dresses were such a staple in fashion from the '40s to '60s. And that brooch is perfection! Lovely outfit, Lauren :)

xoxo, Alesha
