So this was the first eShakti dress that I purchased after the Rack Reduction. It's a little bit big and I need to work on the measurements that I give them if/when I order from them again.
I ordered this just after the holiday season because I love the fabric. It's better in person but it has a peacock component with blues and pinks within the gold. It's no loner available. It came with a sash belt and pockets (!) and I had the neckline altered to a wide V and short sleeves added because I wanted it to look more 1950s like this:

I'm wearing it with short beaded cotton gloves (because of the heat in Kansas City) similar $15 in satin
The multi-colored hair flower is a gift (similar $10
) and the shoes are modern MJ almond toe pumps (similar $30
). I love them but they are wicked painful. The tassel necklace is a modern jet piece that I love (similar $17
). I got it from Dark Garden years ago. I have a THING about tassel jewelry.
