Holiday Dresses By Eshakti!

Eshakti is currently having a 35% off sitewide sale. Only four more days to go!

However, if you're a new customer (or use a different email from the last time you ordered), you can get $30 off with the code "ALISON47MS".

Make sure to enter it at checkout, and $30 will instantly come off of your total! This is an awesome deal because Eshakti dresses can be quite pricey. With this code and sale, you can get a gorgeous dress for around $20 (or less) total, depending on what item you choose!

And, if you order now, it should get to you by Christmas! I'm ordering the green dress on the top left for Christmas to pair with a red cardigan and shoes, because I love having a theme to my outfits. :)

Eshakti carries sizes 0-36W! That is AMAZING! :)

Oh, how I love Eshakti!

When I learned about Eshakti last year, I was very excited. It's not often that you come across a site that carries clothing from a size 0-36W. That's amazing!

If you scroll through some of my first posts, there are quite a few reviews I did on dresses I received from Eshakti. Just for kicks, I'll upload some of 'em again... save ya the difficulty. Heh. 

I am quite the fan! Fun dresses for plus size women?! YES PLEASE!

These dresses are some of my favorite that are currently listed on the site:

If you've never ordered from Eshakti before, you can get $30 off of your purchase by using the code "ALISON47MS" at checkout, and everything is currently 35% off!

This skirt is currently on sale for $34.95 on so if you use the code, it's just $4.95 + shipping! That's a HUGE deal! I love this skirt. It's a great staple piece for any wardrobe.

So check out Eshakti. You won't be disappointed. :) 

It's been quite a while!

Hey everyone! So sorry for disappearing on ya! It's been a pretty difficult/exciting year!

What to catch up on first?

Well, Max (the wonderful guy I met last December on Tumblr) and I met in Vegas at the end of September! Yup! I was so excited that I started hoarding outfits months ahead of time. I thought I'd share some outfits from our adventure. We also spent 2 nights in a little house in the middle of Hollywood!

This first photo is the fabulous Tess Munster and I. I actually met Max, his sister, and Tess ALL AT ONCE! Very nerve-wracking! Max took this photo, and even though I was super excited to meet Tess, the smile on my face is because I was looking at Max. I'm wearing the comic strip dress from Torrid with a cardigan from Ross. :)

Tess is wonderful, by the way... and just as gorgeous in person! 

The next day, I got to meet the parents! 0_0 I wore my lovely rose print dress from Torrid (still a favorite!), and attempted victory rolls in my hair. I felt pretty sassy, I must say. I wish I had some better photos, but I was distracted, if ya get my drift. We went to a lovely buffet in the Aria, and then I spent some time with Max and Jade. Jade got an amazing tattoo while Max and I hung out. 

Totally didn't get many photos of my outfits from our stay in Hollywood, except for the one I wore on the last day. The skirt is from Eshakti, and the top is a shirt Max designed... with his face on it. Yup! Here, I'm behind High Voltage Tattoo. 

He snuck in a smooch.

Here Max and I are in front of the Hollywood sign! It was quite a fun drive up there, haha.

It was an awesome few days! Next, I head to Canada. Yup! I'm terrified of flying, but I'm gonna do it. My Passport Application has been sent in, and I'm hoarding the winter clothes, although nothing I wear will be warm enough.

Anyway, I thought I'd throw in a few more of my favorite outfits since I've last posted!

Skull dress is from Torrid. Vest is from Old Navy. Leggings are from Wal-Mart. 

Again, my favorite floral dress from Torrid! Lace top is from DD's Discounts!

This was my outfit from my Niece's Doctor Who themed wedding. I made the skirt from fabric I found on Spoonflower. Top is from Torrid. This is a very Torrid heavy post! Heh.

Lastly, I call this the ketchup and mustard pic, haha. Aren't we cute?

I promise to try and keep this blog updated more often! :)

I've been busy lately trying to find fun and unique fabrics to make some plus-size skirts for my Etsy shop, and I think I've done a great job! I'm trying to use more licensed fabrics for fans of comics and tv shows, which has been working out well! If only I could find myself some King of the Hill Fabric! I'd be thrilled!

Anywho, I thought I'd share with you some of my more recent skirts. All of the ones pictured should be listed in my Etsy shop and should fit sizes 2X-3X (but check the measurements!), or they can be custom made if listed!

Thanks for looking!!! :D

My most favorite dress! The Domino Dollhouse Galaxy dress!!!

When I saw the photo of this dress on the Domino Dollhouse Tumblr, I literally squealed. How gorgeous is it??!! I knew it had to be mine!

I literally stalked the website on the release date and ordered it within 2 minutes of it being posted! Lucky for me, since I heard the site actually froze up for a lot of people and the dress sold out rather quickly.

This dress is so well made and even better in person! It does run a bit big - I ordered a 3X, and I probably could have gone with a 2X. I'm a size 24 US. However, I don't mind, and I always wear a belt to cinch my dresses in, anyway. :)

So here's the outfit I put together. I paired it with some black leggings from Forever21, and my cute studded boots from Kohl's. I went with a denim vest (Old Navy) and my black bow belt from Torrid.

I felt so cute! I got a ton of compliments because the dress is very unique and noticeable.

A few days after receiving the dress, I got these wonderful glitter boots that I knew would look fantastic with it. 

The boots are by Call It Spring, and I got them from JC Penney. They were sold out online last time I checked, and I'm unsure if they're going to re-stock them. As much as I love them, they actually broke the first time I wore them. The sole came apart at the heal. Lucky for me, I have tons of E6000 on hand, so I can glue them back together, but it's still pretty irritating! 

So, basically, this is my most favorite dress and I am so happy that I got it! I've heard people complaining about the $90 price tag, but I have to say that I think it was worth the price. I usually don't spend much on my clothing (I'm a sucker for sales, coupon codes, and discount stores like Ross, Marshall's, and TJ MaXX!).... so even I gasped at the price, but I am SO glad I treated myself to this lovely dress.

Oh, also.... I got my hair professionally done from a lovely lady recently! (Ignore the fantastic face I'm making in the second photo, haha... this just happened to be the best photo of my hair color!) I'm LOVING it! It's nice to have professionally dyed hair for once. :)
