Hello Friends and Happy Monday

Today’s outfit is the Avon color block dress which was first featured in this May 2012 post, wow, time sure does fly by!  This time I decided to pair it with a little animal print from the matching earring & necklace set to the shoes and small pouch which was a DIY project.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

The weather so far this Spring has been two tone – warm one day, cold the next … sunny one day, raining the next…warm during the day and freezing at night.  This afternoon it’s expected to be warm which is definitely a relief because the past few nights have been extremely chilly so much so that we had to turn the heat back on.  I am not going to complain too much as there are states that are still dealing with snow and flooding which is far worse than anything we are experiencing.

In keeping with the two tone theme, today’s outfit is a combination of two trends:

Color Blocking and Black & White.

“eShakti-We Design – You Customize”

I am doing this review for eShakti, an international fashion design company in India that sells ready-to-wear and customized women’s clothing.  eShakti specializes in affordable custom made clothing for women in sizes 0-36W.  They have been featured in Vogue, Glamour and O Magazines and now include design teams in New York and California.   In an effort to reach a wider audience they have contacted several bloggers including myself to review an item of clothing from their stock.

I chose this ready-to-wear blue stripe dress and am not only in love with the color but also in how it fits my body frame.  It is an all-season knit dress, so today I added a thrifted denim bolero jacket and black patent leather pumps.

The scoop neck, cap sleeves and side zipper has it fitting me to a “T”, it’s a very nice cut.  After wearing, I machine washed on delicate and hung to dry with no problems, it kept it’s shape and only needs a cool iron to remove the wrinkles.

Product Review Disclosure:  

Any products which have been gifted or provided free to me for review will be mentioned in the post and are posted only if it is a good fit for De Divah Deals’ aesthetics and content.   Any sponsored giveaways or posts will also be noted as such.

On Friday, after Tayair and I left the cemetery we stopped at Spencer’s Bazaar Flea Market and then Rodney Village Shopping Center.  There will be a separate post for Spencer’s Bazaar that features unique items made and sold by a high school friend.  Our next stop was to the Goodwill store where Gloria once worked before she passed.  I walked around for almost 30 minutes and could not find anything, eventually I found a belt for $1.00.  Within the shopping center which is really a strip mall there was Beauty Max, a large beauty supply store.  Hubby needed new hair clippers and I was looking for a “weekend wig”.  After finding a cute FreeTress unit on clearance for $19.99, a lace front, the hair clippers and some nail polish we decided to head home.

As we were leaving I noticed a store called Citi Trends, I had never heard of it but decided to stop in and check it out.  The clothing was along the lines of urban gear for the younger crowd, but I found a cute pencil skirt, a cuff bracelet and a spike ring.  (posted on Instagram @ablake48).  Tayair wasn’t interested in anything but I knew Malik would be, so on Saturday I let him drive us back down to check it out.  While he shopped I took time to look around and ended up getting these shoes and dresses.  Malik wore the Canvas Lace Ups and watch to school which is probably why he was so anxious on going today.

Purchased this FreeTress Wig (Lyon Girl) for $19.99
