Welcome to the Santa’s Little Helper Giveaway Hop, hosted by Viva Veltoro and So Easy Being Green!

We all know that everyone could use a little help around the Holidays, so for this Event I’ve teamed up with over 90 other bloggers to be your Santa’s Little Helper… giving away prizes that anyone would want to see under the tree! You might find the perfect gift for a little one on your list – or even for yourself, so hop around to all the blogs, including the GRAND PRIZE, on the linky at the bottom of this post!

Happy Holidays!

…………………………………………………………………………………
So ladies, have you ever woken up the morning of a big Christmas holiday party and thought, “I know!  I’ll wear that dress that is so unflattering, but I love the color”, or “That dress that is a little too short, but has the perfect sleeves, will be perfect”, or “If only that little black dress was taken out a little more and had pockets, it would be my dream dress”.  Speaking from a seamstress perspective, I know how some of you live, having to incessantly be taking things to be tailored or giving things away because they are just not-quite flattering.  Have you ever wished you had your personal tailor who could make you your dream dress exactly to your measurements, and then customize things like the dress length, type of sleeves, pockets, and other details?
 AffiliateTermsConditions20032
Ladies, your personal tailor and seamstress: eShakti.
I haven’t enough words to tell you how much I love this place.  You can literally customize any of their skirts, dresses, or tops to your exact measurements, and then take it a step further and customize the sleeves, the hem length, the embroidered details, the pockets, etc.  A personal seamstress could not do this faster or cheaper, mark my words.
I LOVE working with eShakti!  Everything I order is delivered in a timely fashion (which is remarkable knowing that these are made overseas).  See the last two dresses I ordered from them:
duo
Their styles are darling, flattering, and there are dozens and dozens of dresses and colors to choose from.  Yap, yap, yap, let’s let the dress do the talking.  I was ready to go a little festive and be a little daring, so I went with this Beaded Crepe Knit Sheath Dress in Emerald.  Love it!
green2
So to be honest, there a lot of things I love about this dress, and I few things I would change.  The beadwork: love it.  Gorgeous, secure, detailed, high quality beads.  The draping: love it, but I do wish the pleats had been sewn down a little further up the sides.  I really think my bustiness created an odd pattern ratio, which causes the pleats to gape open.  It makes me look a little more chesty than I already am, but I do like the added dimension of more texture and fabric up top.

This dress also features a keyhole back with rouleau-button closure.  eShakti was nice enough to send along an extra button as well as a bag of beads to replace them down the road if needs be.
dress4
I think a belt does a great job at bringing this all together, and the beadwork makes accessorizing with gold or silver jewelry so easy!  Go glam!

There are hundreds of possibilities at eShakti.  You’re bound to find dozens of styles you love and would love to further customize.

Fancy Slips {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Are you shopping today? If you are, good luck and stay safe! Or maybe you already went since most stores opened yesterday at 6 pm (and some at 6 am!). I, for one, am more of an online shopper, and here’s a gift that you could buy for a friend, daughter or yourself, right from the comfort of your computer!

Fancy_Logo

Fancy Slips was created by a mom wanting to give her daughter more modest options while shopping for skirts and dresses.  She created an entire line of fancy (and some not-so-fancy) slips in several designs and a variety of colors that help extend your just-barely-too-short skirts and dresses. You can see my first review of Fancy Slips HERE.

Fancy_me_whole

If you read my first review of Fancy Slips, you’ll know how much I loved my Fancy! The quality is great, the designs are beautiful and the customer service is phenomenal. This time I chose to review the most popular Fancy Slip, the Bethany.

bethany

My last Fancy slip I ordered was a size Medium, and it felt a little constricting–almost hard to walk in because it was so straight. So I chose the size Large this time which was definitely big around the waist but gave me more room to walk. However, the Bethany is also a fuller style, so I’m sure that helped it feel larger at the bottom as well. The lace on the bottom is beautiful and I love the flirty, frilly style. It works really well with all types of dresses and skirts, whether flowy or straight. I love the look of the Bethany under this swishy blue dress. blue dressAnd the Bethany makes this cool, super short $17 Target find wearable beyond the beach! coral

Fancy Slips come in several styles and lots of colors, so I guarantee that there’s a Fancy Slip for every dress in your wardrobe that will help you “extend your wardrobe in style.” Take a look at their shop and find a slip to make that dress in the back of your closet wearable again! If you live near the Orem Mall in Utah you’re in luck–today they’re having a special Black Friday sale: Buy 3 Get 1 FREE! For the rest of us, you can order online, but be sure to order soon to get your Fancy in time for Christmas! And for one lucky winner, Christmas will come early because Fancy Slips is giving one reader a chance to win a Fancy Slip of your choice!

Enter to Win a Fancy Slip!

** This giveaway is open to U.S. entries only.

We always talk about how fun it would be to travel, but in actuality, it scares me to death!  I keep picturing getting mugged, lost, and stranded within miles of anyone who can speak my language. Surely I will build up the courage to let go of my fears and do something fun and risky, but until then, I’m happy to watch movies of exotic places and pretend I visit a new country every weekend movie night.  I am still in love with the IDEA of worldwide travel and adventures, and I am definitely in love with Our World Boutique, a shop full of travel-inspired fashion from all around the world!

logo

If you take a moment to browse around, you’ll see all sorts of gorgeous tops, dresses, accessories and jewelry with inspirations from all over.  Every style and fashion had to come from somewhere, and this shop does a great job of bringing in old, new, and timeless fashions and styles.

Everything is priced SO reasonably.  There are dresses being sold for $14.99, tops for $12.99, and jewelry that starts at $1.99!  In preparation for the nippy weather on our heels, I chose to dive into the scarf dept. and these are what we picked out:

IMG_7730

Its just the season for it, huh!  Is not everyone raving about how fun it is to break out their Fall fashion wardrobe?!

2My sister in law and I wore our scarves downtown one weekend.  You can see how the colorful scarves are great as summer scarves and for layering, and this white Pashima scarf is fantastic with winter coats and trenches.

Now everything in this shop is quick to come and go.  If you see something you love, snatch it!  Case in point: by the time I received these cute scarves, took pictures, and posted this giveaway, their entire stock of THOUSANDS of scarves was sold and gone!  So instead of offering a winner a scarf of their choice,

Our World Boutique is offering FIVE winners an accessory or piece of jewelry!  Check these out!

I’ve been in this awesome purge-mode lately, throwing out all sorts of junk we’ve accumulated over the last 5 years.  I got a full two boxes ready to donate after going through my closet and drawers.  I’ve decided that I have quite a few pieces of clothing that only pretty memorable and kind of overwhelm the outfit, and they don’t transfer well when I try to pair them with other things.  For example, this crazy bright yellow skirt only works well with one other shirt, so those two are always worn together, and it never looks right to put them with other things.  I’ve decided that I need more staples, classic pieces, and “repeatable” items!

Repeat PossessionsYup, its Repeat Possessions again!  Remember our giveaway with them in July?  This store sells familiar favorites, fashion statement pieces, and everything in between.  Tops, denim, bottoms, activewear, dresses, outerwear, shoes, jewelry, accessories, and even kids clothes!  Here are some of my new favorites from their current selection.

RP_3Q_Sleeve_Dress-2T Gee_WaWa_Lovely-2T Gold_White_Crystal_Watch-2T RP_Camisole_Colors-5T

See how all of these could be so versatile and interchangeable?  Ya, I need more of these in my life.

Repeat Possessions also has a great line of activewear, and I was able to review their T-Party Yoga Pants.

Yoga_Pant-2T

THESE are staple.  Wear them to the gym, wear them to bed, where them to get the mail.  I firmly believe that no mom or woman over 22 should be wearing neon, charactered, baggy pajama pants on any occasion, indoors or out.  Yes, I did some of this kind of purging too.  I’ve decided that black yoga pants can replace a large slew of obnoxious pajamas, sweat pants, and gym clothes that I should not have been still wearing.

pants

These are great.  Snug, very long (though maybe a little too long for someone 5’2), good compression, and the fold over waistband is awesome for tummy support, as it can be worn up or folded down.  These are sold for $25, and are available in thirteen other colors!  These are made out of a cotton/lycra blend that is thicker than other sweatbands I’ve owned, making them warm and supportive.  The care instructions say to hand wash and line dry, but I’ll probably still wash these in the washer.

Thanks Repeat Possessions!  I love their customer service, by the way.  They do a good job in making ‘repeat customers’.

One lucky winner will receive a this pair of yoga pants, in your size!  Lucky for, you also get to pick out your choice of color (13 available).

Sometimes I get really jealous about how men can just order clothes from anywhere based on 2-3 measurements.  A waist and an inseam is all they need to order pants, and a sleeve length and a neck circumference is all they need for shirts!  What!?  Take jeans.  When it comes to women’s bodies, I imagine you could try on 25 pairs of jeans and feel like every single one of them fit a different way or felt different on your body.  Every female figure is so unique!!  Add the craziness that pregnancy and nursing can do to your figure, and your measurements can go in all sorts of directions!!  Frustrating.

AffiliateTermsConditions20032For all these reasons, I so very rarely trust myself to purchase clothing online.  When I do, I end up altering it myself to get the exact fit I want.  The all-fabulous clothing shop called eShakti will put all your frustrations and fears behind you!  They make customizable clothing that are sewn EXACTLY to your measurements, plus you can customize other features like sleeve type, hem length, pockets, no pockets, etc.mailer21-1-13-2

eShakti has become my favorite online dress shop of all time!  I’m on their email list, so every time they have new styles or designs, I immediately peruse and pick out new favorites.  They have so many current fashions, colors, and styles, especially in line with the season.  I have no idea how they can bust out all these gloriously beautiful fashions in customized sizes and styles in 10 days or less, but I would LOOOOVE to see their workshop!  Or work in it, haha.

Do you love my new dress?  This is the Pleated Surplice Poplin Dress.  Above is how it started, then of course, I added elbow length sleeves, and changed it to new length.  I kept the pockets and put in all my (fairly unproportional) measurements to get something completely customized to fit me!

IMG_7126

If you are self-conscious about any part of your body, you can style their dresses or tops to one that suits your body type.  This is the answer to every woman’s qualms about their insecurities (and we all have them).  I bet we can all think of something we like to hide, or cover, or show off.  I can see how eShakti is appealing to all women of all shapes and sizes.  They carry everything from size 0 to 36W, for goodness sake.

What a complete breath of fresh air and relief to try on this dress straight out of the box, zip it up, and get a 100% perfect fit!  Custom orders start at just $7.50, so you too can get it just exactly right!

IMG_7155

eShakti is the cream of the crop of tailor made dresses!  Don’t you see the value of this shop when it comes to bridesmaids dresses?  You could start with one dress and each girl could get it styled to their liking and body type, and made exactly to their measurements.

IMG_7125

I want to order every dress I ever wear from eShakti!  I have no criticisms, no complaints, and not a single suggestions to improve the awesomeness going on at eShakti.  I only hope they stay around a long, long time.  They have found a life-time fan in me, that’s for sure.  Here are some other favorites!!

A friend of mine was recently on the local news showing off some of her favorite hassle-free items for moms.  I thought they were all pretty cool, but I wondered how the last item would fit in.  The last item was a cute knit hat that didn’t necessarily make going out with baby less of a hassle, but as she put it, sometimes its easier to be more patient with our kids when they are dressed cute!  True?

tjlogoGuilty.  Its just so hard to lose your cool when your little human is dressed like a baby model!  This would be motivation enough for me to always dress my kids to the nines, and if I could dress them entirely in Taylor Joelle outfits, I’m sure I could never get upset with them!

greenWhat makes their clothing line so fabulous is their top quality fabrics and chic designs.  Like a good quilt, every piece of Taylor Joelle looks perfectly put together with time, thought, and a personal hand-made touch.

ss-home-52Taylor Joelle has stunning collections that are so perfectly coordinating, you could buy one of everything in that collection and have your children’s wardrobe covered for your next family pictures.  Done.

I’ve been a huge fan of Taylor Joelle Designs since I reviewed a little girls dress for them back in January.  I love how they are often introducing new collections.  The latest is a favorite of mine!

collectionThe Black Tie Collection is full of black, white, and bows!  My wedding in a nutshell, haha!  These colors are so creamy and the black bow will always be a classic.

We reviewed the Bow Top (sold for $28) and the Mint Tutu with Bow Leggings (sold for $40), and I had the best baby model to help me out!

bow

I LOVE this ensemble!  Can I have those leggings in my size?  The tutu is soft and not at all a scratchy tulle, and the multiple layers are great for twirling.

bow3Truly, this top could go with anything (any print, any color), and I like how the tutu is attached to the leggings so there are not multiple layers to get tangled up in.  The bright mint color makes this perfect for holiday pictures!

Today’s post is a bittersweet one for me since it’s my last one as a blog contributor at this site!  We’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of our baby boy in the next week or two, and we can’t wait to snuggle and settle into our new normal as a family of five.  I started blogging with Dandy Giveaway almost exactly one year ago, and I have completely LOVED featuring shops and companies, reviewing new products, and bringing giveaways to our Dandy readers!!  I’ve loved working together (and becoming friends!) with Tara, Camille, and Valerie, and I’m so excited for all of the great things this blogging team has in store for the future.  And, of course, we love our amazing readers — thanks for helping to make this site just Dandy!  🙂

stella

Although our weather has still been in the high 80s with lots of humidity, there’s just something different about the season — we’ve all but put away our beach toys and have pulled out soups and pumpkin recipes in anticipation for fall’s arrival.  I’ve loved (finally!) living in a location that has four seasons over the past couple of years, and I’ve determined that I LOVE autumn time for the food, the holidays, and the clothes.

I loved perusing the Stella B. website with its unique items and boutique feel, and I had a difficult time narrowing down my large list of “must-haves” to just a handful of favorites.  Stella B. buys their items in limited qualities to ensure that your individual style is one-of-a-kind, and it also means that the inventory is changing all the time — one of my favorite things about these online boutique shops!

Here are some of my favorites from Stella B. for the fall:

Dresses:  Coral Color blocked Hi-Lo Dress

**It’s taken me some time to try out the coral color since I wasn’t sure that I could pull it off with my blonde hair, but I really have loved adding this pop of color into my wardrobe.  I love this model’s choice of accessories that transitions this outfit from summer into fall.

Accessories:  Love Belt Buckle Bracelet- Silver

**So, so cute!!  I love that this bracelet could be worn by anyone and doesn’t look too “cowboy” in style.  It’s a cute piece that draws attention without taking away from the rest of the outfit.

Game Day Collection:   “Roll Tide” Houndstooth Game Day Bow Back Dress

**Loving, loving the houndstooth look that I’ve already seen for this season, and this dress from the Game Day Collection could be worn in a number of ways throughout the year that wouldn’t scream “Alabama!”, unless, of course, you wanted it to.  😉

Tops:  Coral Crush Ombre Top

**Again, my new-found love with the coral color, only this time with the added ombre style — I love that this material is flowy and looks scarf-like, lending to lots of layering fun.

market tote

Personalized Pretties:  Ultimate Chevron Carry-All

**I absolutely LOVE this Ultimate Chevron Carry-All!  It reminds me of the bags that I’ve seen from other large companies, but the ones at Stella B. are less than half their price – these are only $28!!

Black Maxi Skirt

**I received this item to review from Stella B., and I LOVE the material and that these maxi skirts have so many uses throughout the entire year!  I have lived in maxi skirts this summer while I’ve been pregnant, and I can’t imagine my wardrobe without them year-round — the skirt was a little long for me (I just barely make it over five feet tall!), but it fits just fine when I fold down the band, even with flats.  I’m especially happy for the band around the middle since my post-baby bump in the next few months will not be nearly as much fun to dress as the baby bump has been over the past few months.

There are few things that bring me more joy than watching my boys ‘wrestle’ with their dad!  I never hear such squeals of delight as when they are being thrown onto the couch and begging for it again and again.  From the moment Dad walks in the door, all I hear is laughter, squealing, and “wrestle! wrestle! wrestle!”.

Really, does a child have any other more important job than to PLAY!?  And to learn and grow and discover through play?  This is the time of their life to really enjoy the world around them and what their growing bodies can do, without the added pressures of responsibilities, deadlines, or political correctness!

slide2-645

So let them play!  Let them be children, and let them have adorable play clothes that only encourage crazy feats, new ideas, and imagination beyond compare.
Tumblewalla-logo
Tumblewalla (isn’t that the most charming name?) is a company who stands strongly behind their motto to “help families smile, laugh and have a bit more play-time each day”.  They really stand for something much bigger than just their clothing, which is adorable in every way and the epitome of smiles and jovial play.  See what I mean?
Grey_Gater_Onsie-286x293Monkey8.10.13-259x293
Tumblewalla also donates 5% of their sales to select non-profit organizations dedicated to brightening the lives and futures of children who don’t have the resources or opportunities to play as they should.
IMG_6399
The collection is so bright and kind of jungle-themed, huh!  Its actually refreshing to not see a lot of pink or purple, logos, or icons.  What a festival of colors!  Besides these adorable baby clothes, I really like that Tumblewalla carries clothing for bigger kids.  Their collared shirts and dresses are perfect for play dates and adventures.

“Rocket” is one lucky kid, sporting a Kurta Top and Play Bottoms.  They are soft as can be, since everything is made from 100% premium cotton.  We ordered size 3 (top) and size 4 (bottoms), and they are a little big, but appropriately sized for my chunky almost-3-year-old, and these will be excellent for this coming Fall and winter when we are cooped up inside and things start getting a little boring around here.  This play outfit will surely lighten up the dreariness!

While you’re visiting Tumblewalla, don’t miss their classic hand-made monkey puppets!

Repeat possessions.  Think about it.  You probably have a dozen of these.  A certain article of clothing or a pair of shoes that has become your go-to staple and the first thing you grab when you don’t want to think about what to wear today, or you don’t feel like putting in the time to make up a fashion-statement ensemble.  I have tons of these.  Some might call it a limited fashion sense or a stuck-in-a-rut wardrobe, but even Kate Middleton has a pair of tan pumps that she wears everywhere as her staple heels!

Repeat Possessions

Surely a store with the name Repeat Possessions would be the place to go for just such things.  They sell familiar favorites and fashion statement pieces, and everything in between.  Tops, denim, bottoms, activewear, dresses, outerwear, shoes, jewelry, accessories, and even kids clothes!  Here are some things I would wear again and again and again!

Repeat Possessions sent me a classic item that I have literally worn three times this week already.  You can never have enough camis, and when I find a good one, it gets worn to threads.  I got to review the Signature Cami, and it is the most comfortable camisole I own.  It is made out of a super stretchy blend of 92% lightweight nylon and 8% spandex and it is just so buttery smooth to the touch!

Not all camisoles were created equally, and before you disregard this giveaway because the prize is just a tank top, let me further convince you that you need one of these!  They come in SIXTY different colors (!!!), from brights to pastels to neutrals.

I went with the “Stone” color in hopes of adding a nice neutral layer underneath shirts that dip a little too low or end too high on the hem, and since it matches perfectly with my skin, there isn’t a sliver of something white or black that stands out and distracts. image

I also really love that these are one size fits all!  They are SO stretchy that they work on all body types without looking baggy or stretched too thin on big and small bodies alike.  They are also great for pre/post pregnancy periods and they look great with an assortment of casual and dressy outfits, and the long length is exactly what I like.  This is a keeper, for sure!

The temperatures are starting to heat up outside.  Is your summer wardrobe stocked and ready?   The best advice I was ever given to combat the summer humidity here in St. Louis was this:  Cotton skirts.

Modest Dresses

The above summer skirt is from Mikarose and I’m telling Audi today that I need it for my summer wardrobe.  It’s long and modest, but light weight for the summer heat.  So I’ll be cool and fashionably modest at the same time!  Okay I just told him as I’m typing this and he agreed that I can make the purchase.  Not that I need his permission or anything.  😉  It’s just nice to keep him in the loop.  😉

Here’s another summer find from Mikarose:

S1309TealProduct_MED

I’m thinking it would be perfect for the summer heat outdoors as well!

(Note to self:  Talk to Audi about that maxi dress tomorrow.)

Both of the above can be dressed up, but are you looking for something just a bit more fancy?  Mikarose has fancy, too!

In fact Mikarose sent me this gorgeous number:

MDS001BlueLarge

I absolutely love the look and feel of this dress.  It’s light weight for the summer, but the beauty of the lace and flowing fabric really make it something special.  And the color?  Perfect for carrying over into the fall and winter.

You cannot go wrong with a piece of modest clothing from Mikarose.

Now for the giveaway…
