Disclaimer: I received this dress from eShakti in exchange for a review about my experience with my new dress. All opinions expressed are of course my own.
I’m so excited to share my new dress c/o eShakti! They invited me to pick out a dress and share my thoughts on it. Let me tell you, I LOVE IT. When I took it out of the package I immediately squealed with glee. It’s so stinkin’ cute!!
In case you don’t know about eShakti, they sell super-cute clothing that you can have made to your measurements. As someone who sometimes falls in-between sizes and always has to get things hemmed, I love this!! When picking out this dress I decided to go with the standard large size because it was pretty close to my measurements. I changed the length of the dress to fit my short frame and left the rest as is. It turned out perfectly!

This weekend was pretty freakin’ busy! We had plans every day and now we’re spending our Sunday evening resting up and watching The Tick. Even though it was busy it was still really fun. I love spending so much time with Fletch. He truly brings out the best in me. Before him I was a short tempered, impatient, argumentative lady who couldn’t stay in a relationship longer than three months. While I am still those things at times and depending on the topic, I’ve learned to pick my battles. I’ve learned to let go of petty things and focus on forgiving.
Last week I was on a bit of a Spice Girls kick. I listened to them… a lot.. and then started watching a documentary on them that I happened-upon on YouTube. It was an hour long so I didn’t finish it (yet). I was feeling inspired by girl power so when I was picking out my outfit for Saturday I decided to rock my adorable “Girl Power” shirt from Luella. Fletch and I were going to a concert later in the evening so I was looking for something that would be cute and comfy. I think my outfit was a success!

If you’ve watched the news over the past days you know what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. It’s been a week and I’m still not sure I’ve found the right words to say about what happened. I’m disgusted and angry. I knew that there were people out in the world who were filled with hatred but what happened last Saturday was truly terrifying. A group of white supremacists gathered for a rally to supposedly protest the tearing down of a statue of Robert E. Lee, a confederate general. Individuals opposing the white supremacists counter-protested. Violence ensued. A state of emergency was issued.
I watched what was going on, tears filling my eyes. I’m writing this in a local coffee shop and as I type it’s all I can do to not let more tears stream down my face.
What do we do next?
A few weeks ago I attended the super-hip and secretive Diner en Blanc in Seattle with my friend, Jenn of Hellorigby. Basically, it’s a big picnic with strangers where you wear all white. You bring your own table, chairs, food, wine, and whatever else you want to bring. I received an invite since I’m a blogger. To score an invite to this event you have to either 1. Have attended another Diner en Blanc 2. Have someone who has attended refer you or 3. You join a wait list with everyone else and it’s a first come first serve situation.
Jenn and I started chatting about potentially going and it wasn’t until I talked to her and did a little research that I decided to go. Curiosity got the best of me and I really wanted to check out the event.
