Easter Dress

 Have truck, will use as photo prop.
Many months ago, I wrote about why my sister Lizzy and I are not the same person, in spite of the fact that people constantly mix us up, and this picture only further confirms an already known fact.

In other news, when eShakti offered to send me a dress from their new Spring line in exchange for a review, it took me only minutes to decide that this coral beauty was the dress for me. You might at first wonder why, because from the front it seems like a perfectly normal dress, very appropriate for the Spring season. Nothing too unusual to make it signature Rachel style. (At the moment, it appears that this particular dress is sold out, but if I had to choose a different brilliantly beautiful eShakti dress, it would be this one or the one .)


You see the back!! Bam! Turquoise! Totally surprised you there, I know. It's genius. Definitely the perfect dress for me. Also, don't you love it that it's finally almost warm enough to wear dresses? I mean, I was still freezing when these pictures were being taken, but at least I was freezing in 40 something degree weather instead of 20 something degree weather!

Also, take a look at this pendant. My Aunt made it. As in, she took little pieces of different colored glass and melted and fused and fired and turned them into a landscape pendant. She's quite the artist with glass, check out her studio's Facebook page if you don't believe me.

 Our "Ahhhh! I can't look into the sun and keep my eyes open at the same time!!!" Easter picture. 

*And in case it wasn't completely obvious up there--I hereby disclose that eShakti gave me this dress for free, but this review is all my own opinion. My opinion is that I love dresses in general, and dresses with cool designs like surprise turquoise and the ability to add sleeves when I want sleeves? Brilliant.

  2. once again, love it! super cute :) my favorite is the back!

  3. awww you look lovely!!! Sweet picture of the two of you! :)

  4. Super cute, Rachel!
    I actually think it's kind of strange people mistake you for your sister! You look similar, but not THAT similar! My eldest sister gets really irritated because people think my mom and her are sisters!

  5. i love it! I totally was not expecting the back. :) (i also like your backup choices, what cute dresses they have!)

  6. The dress is super cute, I love the unexpected color on the back!! And that die for.

  7. I hate that eshakti's clothes end up sold out so quickly during their sales! The dress you chose is gret though, it looks great on you. My husband was mistaken for his brother maybe 6 times on Sunday. They don't look that much alike.

  8. Really cute dress, like the old time feel!
