30 for 30 Spring Remix Challenge #7

Saturday mornings are pretty hectic here at the suburbsmama house. You try getting everyone dressed, fed and out the door by 9:45am in the morning! It  is quiet a task, let me tell you, especially since we usually don't get up until 9:30am on a daily basis. 

I saw all of these reviews out in the blog land of Eshakti this month (I am sure you did to), So I decided to try and customize a dress myself. 

I have been looking for a perfect black dress with sleeves and knee length for years, which I am sure is impossible to find.

So I custom ordered my first dress! Since it was my first time ordering, I got $25 off, free custom fit options (sleeves, length). I wish it was lined, but for the price of $59.99, I think it is nicely made. 

I ended up paying $44.90. Not bad, I say.

I wish their shipping was free, I paid $9.95 for shipping and they stuffed the dress in a tiny flat box (something you would ship a stack of papers in)  which was delivered tattered and ripped open. Thankfully the dress was not damaged, but I am very disappointed in the shipping.

My outfit for the morning Shabbat service today.

Little Em asked me to take her picture, how could I resist, she is just perfect! Sometimes I still can't believe that I have been blessed with such wonderful kids. 

My outfit:
Dress: Eshakti 
Shoes: BCBGeneration Nordstrom
Belt: Asos

Little Em's outfit:
Dress, shoes: Nordstrom (last year)
