Doesn't this fabric look familiar? No, it's not déjà vu or a magic trick - I do have a dress made of this same material (which you might have seen in this post). I loved that dress so much that when eShakti generously offered me a gift card in return for writing about their new web-site, I used that card toward purchasing this gorgeous maxi dress, made from the same beautiful shiny cotton. Similarly to my first eShakti dress, it also is fully lined, has pockets, and is made specifically to my measurements (custom sizing is the best!). I did not choose options to change details or the length because I love this dress just the way it is. It fits me like a glove, saves me in the heat of Summer when I want to be dressed up (and many of my fancy dresses are made of polyester), and I receive a lot of compliments on it.
Happy coincidence: this style attracted not only me, but also gorgeous Glenda of the blog So What to Twenty! - click here to see how striking she looks in her eShakti maxi dress made in the same style, but totally different fabric. And if you don't know Glenda yet, please do yourself a favor and read this stylish, intelligent and inspiring lady!
Earlier this Spring, I picked up this inexpensive pair of earrings from a local nursery shop, without knowing what I would pair them with. Now I'm so glad I did because they match my new dress to perfection. Magic!
The temperature was again over 90 F this weekend, but to watch Anya's show last night, I grabbed a cardigan, because the auditorium was air-conditioned and quite cool on the first night. The second show was even better than the first one. I think kids relaxed a little, gained more confidence, and almost two hours of the performance flew by quickly! Both kids and grown-ups did an amazing, amazing job! The show had great energy and true magic to it. And when you feel the magic - it is the best part of theater, or any art, really. And, at least to me, the best part of life as well.
Is there a room for magic in your heart?
