In my last post, I talked about extending my Spring and Summer wardrobe even as both the temperatures and the leaves are falling.
I liked these teal boots from ShoeDazzle so much that when they went on a closeout sale two years ago for $11, I bought a second pair as a backup.
This dress from eShakti is yet another example of all-season dressing - a sleeveless Summer dress whose deep orange and teal hues look just right for Fall, especially with the addition of teal suede boots
The dress is from eShakti, a site that allows you to customize features like necklines; sleeves, and length of its dresses to suit your personal taste; they'll also create a dress fit for your precise measurements. I have several dresses from eShakti and have generally been very pleased with fit, quality, value, and customer services.
Like the butterflies that cover the dress, my Spring/Summer wardrobe undergoes its own metamorphosis as the Seasons change.
I've had these crystal and enamel earrings for several years - it was a complete coincidence that they complement the embrodiered accent on the neckline of the dress so well! The ring is a one of a kind creation by Marc Aronstam featuring a cabochon spessartite garnet (which are deep orange in color) in an 18k setting surrounded by diamonds - it's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. 
Whenever possible, I'll just switch out accessories; add tights; change my shoes; and keep right on soaring...
 Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!

  1. I think I should just add "ditto" for each of my comments because I just love your posts, Jodie, always so full of colour, style and panache... I adore turquoise and this dress is gorgeous. xx

    1. Thank you so much, Elizabeth! It's been such a joy to discover like-minded bloggers and fashionistas! Even though we dress for ourselves, it's so lovely to inspire and be inspired by others, too.
