I'm thrilled that GB is carrying some eShakti dresses, however...I haven't had much luck with the fit of any that I've tried (it's hit & miss when I've ordered from them too). This dress was a disaster on top...too big, with an ill-placed snap that looked awkward when fastened, but showed & broke up the neckline when left undone. I also did not care for the top being black with no black in the skirt. I got several compliments while wearing this, but did not feel pretty. The cardigan helped pull the look together for me. Cardigans always help. 
The top of this was knit & the skirt was a satin-y fabric with a lining & pockets. 
I'm quite pleased with this sandal find...I adore Born shoes & can't get enough flower sandals & blue was a color I didn't have...$5 at a Savers 50% off sale. 
My makeup with this outfit included...Sunrise Blue eyeliner by NYX, NYX Ultimate eyeshadow palette in Brights, Stila liquid lipstick in Aria, & Blue My Mind nail polish from OPI. 
I was looking for some fall-like jewelry on etsy & came across this lovely leaves set (with only one earring...it was made to be mine!). 

David surprised me with this fabulous Kat von D Saint & Sinner eyeshadow palette...it is delightful!

And some makeup I picked up when NYX was on sale at Ulta. I really wanted the Fire palette, but it was sold out every time I looked. 
I wore this dress to wander around town for gallery night with Kate...it was just before Halloween so there were some fun themed things...Kate with the batty bats...
Adopt a hedgehog in a deviled egg plate, so cute. Our final stop of the night was at Chocolaterian for a band & a bite of chocolate. We were confused as to why they were using bunny molds this time of year...one contained peanut butter & the other, chocolate. 
The next day...farmers' market with Kate...then Savers shopping & Indian buffet with David...
My Savers sale scores...
