My Color





 This is it.

Do you guys have a color? And I don't just mean a color that looks good on you, though that might be part of it.

Fuchsia is a color that works well for my hair and skin tone, but there's something more to it. Fuchsia simply IS my color. I feel most at home, most me, when wearing fuchsia. I feel like it describes me well. It's vivid, it's a little outside the the norm, and it's probably not included in the standard 12-set of crayons.

This dress is my color, and I love it.

It's also from eShakti, which you might have noticed I wear a lot of. It's this dress, but I added sleeves and changed the neckline. That's the beauty of eShakti. I prefer knee-length dresses with short sleeves, so that's what I purchase. My mom prefers calf-length dresses with a longer length of sleeves, and that's what she orders. Seriously, I am a living, breathing advertisement for eShakti, and because of me, my mom, several of my sisters, and now some of my sisters' friends as well own dresses that they bought from eShakti. They are an awesome company when it comes to sizes that are hard to find (ever tried shopping for a 5'8" but extremely slim teenager like my sister Rebekah? It isn't easy!) and for styles that aren't excessively trendy. Because my family lives in the tropics, they especially like the selection of 100% cotton dresses because of how breathable they are in high heat and humidity!

This particular dress was given to me by eShakti in exchange for review.

So, what's your color? Do you think I'm right about fuchsia being 'my color'? And have you ever ordered a dress from eShakti?

i love my skin best in jewel tones!

I think you're right - fuchsia looks so good on you. I don't really know what my color is - I've heard I always look good in similar colors fuchsia, pinks, reds.

Shay Noble said...

I love your dress, fuchsia is definintely your colour. For me, I think it's khaki green. I have quite a lot of accessories and tops in that colour and it seems to complement my fair skin & dark blonde hair quite well :) x

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

Red is my color Rachel. I agree Fuchsia looks fantastic on you. I love the vintage feel of that dress. Fits you great. But I am especially loving the necklace, bracelets & shoes. The bow on your hair looks too cute. =)

Saxon @ Lets Drink Coffee, Darling said...

Navy isn't my favorite color by all means, but I think it may be "that" color that just works well with my complexion. I think really any earthy colors work fine as well, and I truly consider all of those to be "my" colors.

Love the dress, it has some really interesting seam lines as well, I really like that part about it! You're right, you look great in that color!

Samantha Curtis said...

You look fabulous! That IS your color! I have no idea what my color is but I love trying to figure that out ;) and I love eShakti too!

The Lady Okie said...

That's a great color on you! And I love the necklace. Eshakti has awesome dresses. It's fun to get one for free too :)

Dawn Lucy said...

Adorable dress! And adorable you! I love this color!

Elizabeth said...

The dress is beautiful and looks great on you! My color is turquoise. I think it complements my hair and skin tone (or so I've been told), but it's also a color I just enjoy wearing.

Elizabeth M said...

That is a beautiful color on you! I would say that my color is royal blue. What a great website, my mom was asking about something like this recently, I will have to send it over to her.

Robyn B said...

i've always been told that red looks really good on me. i love that dress by the way!!

Chandra said...

I'm not sure WHAT my color is. I know that I own plenty of vibrant jewel tone colors; I'm not sure why I gravitate towards them. Who knows if they work well with my skin tone, etc.; I just like the colors!

Lovely dress and color! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

Mrs C said...

Striking pink and purple, plum and cobalt is my color even if my husband keeps on telling me it is red that suits me the best. You definitely know your color.. looks stunning on you :)

This is gorgeous on you. Especially with the bright lippy to match. I can see why you refer to it as your colour.

I love a good emerald or teal.

Erica said...

It looks great on you! And their dresses really do look so good for customising!

Karla FNW said...

Wow! Gorgeous dress! You look absolutely beautiful! My color is apparently green (that's what everybody tells me) even though I only own one green shirt! I guess I should get more green.. hmm.. =)

Allie @ Everyday Adventures said...

Beautiful dress! Hot pink is my color too. :)

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Fuschia is definitely your color. Looks good! I need to figure my color out.

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

You're rockin' that color, girlie!! xx

Anna Belle said...

That color is perfect for you! Plus, I love how the necklace echoes the circle pattern of the dress! I'm more of a muted dusty blue/gray person, both in looks and personality!

Anonymous said...

Definitely a good color on you!

Megan Walker said...

I look best in bright blue/greens. I have a mint peplum top and a blue dress which make my eyes, skin and hair pop! Love them.

Inge Jane said...

This is definitely your color! I've been told I look good in blues, but I don't really feel partial to one color in particular.

Sarah Alway said...

That dress is gorgeous! And I love fuchsia. I wouldn't necessarily say I have a particular "color," but I do know that I wear WAY too much grey, black and white... it constitutes practically my entire work wardrobe! Luckily my weekend wear tends to be a little more fun. :-)

Rachel Porter said...

Such a great color! Love it

Charlene Maugeri said...

Wow! I love that dress and the website sounds awesome with all the options! I will have to check them out!

Paige Gunter said...

I had never been that website before. I may have to save up first, but their style is right up my alley. I love the idea of customizing it also. You are right about the fuchsia. It is so pretty! White and pale blue are my two favorites.

Who is that Girl Mo? said...

Pretty color and dress. :-) I'm not sure what my color is but I think it's geared towards earth tones.

Paige @ Reasons to Come Home said...

You always just look so cute! And what a neat website!

Jo said...

Because of you, I also clicked on eShakti! I guess being a walking advertisement for it helps since in the end, you managed to get a review dress from them in your favourite fuchsia pink! I like their concept about real fashion for real people a lot. Very honest and appealing. You look really really sweet with the ribbon at the side. Just like a shy school girl with your pose like that!

Tada! I managed to follow you via GFC!!! One of my blog friend managed to figure out how to follow via GFC even with the glitch and the first blog I tried it was yours! Tried it, refreshed and saw me up there as a follower! So excited. I'm gonna share this info with the rest too. I also followed you on bloglovin earlier on. Hope to stay in touch with you!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

Krysten Gautreaux said...

That is definitely a gorgeous color on you and I love eShakti! I just bought the most gorgeous skirt from them to wear the day after the wedding!

Mrs. M ~ a.k.a. ~ April said...

Yes! Fuscia is your color! Red is my color- my favorite color and it looks good on me. Something about red. When I was younger I thought pink was my color, then there was purple and then there was turquoise. But red always comes back!

Sarah Pete said...

That is a beautiful dress and color on you! Fits you perfectly! :]
I don't know if I have a color . . . maybe cerulean blue . . . I'd have to take one of those silly Buzzfeed tests to find out . . . or not . . .

Ali Hval said...

I recieved a dress from eShakti about a year ago and it was so beautiful, and I, too, loved the customization aspect of it! This really is your color. And your dress is so lovely! You're such a slim lady. :D That necklace is so nice to look at, too! For some reason it reminds me of Mario. WHY, I AM UNSURE. STAY TUNED.

I know what you mean about having a color that's you--I feel that way about a very pale aqua. I seldom wear it, mainly because it's difficult to find and I feel that blues aren't as decent looking on me, but it's the color of my room and I use it so much in my paintings. n___n

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

Oh, a resounding Yes, this is YOUR colour Rachel! Great choice from eShakti!! Hmmm....a single colour that's me? I'm gonna have to think on this one!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I like this color on you a lot! Mine is black... does that count?? haha

AwesomelyOZ said...

That's a gorgeous color! My color is red, love that shit - I look so good in red and I just glow. :D Happy Monday Rachel and cute dress! -Iva

After Eleven Blog said...

100% agree that this is your color. I think my color is a very light light turquoise....

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I love eshakti!! It's hard for me to pick one color, because I like them all. I would say my color is pink or blue.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Beautiful dress and such a great color!

Kari said...

That is your color! It looks great on you and is just so vibrant and fun—just like you:) I just checked out their website and am hooked! I love all those choices and the fact that you can customize your dress. So cute!

Jayda said...

Love that dress...it really is your colour!! It would be hard for me to pick one color, but I tend to like black on me the most.

Jennifer Prod said...

aw, the dress looks lovely on you -- and you're right about the color complementing you:) as for me? i don't think i have an 'it' color -- maybe white? or blue? gah, i have greenish skin and brown eyes and reddish/brown hair - it's a tossup!

Haley said...

I've honestly never thought of a colour as 'my' colour. I really like a greeny blue, sort of like aqua and I always have ever since I was little. But I don't wear it.. Red.. I like when I wear red or army green. The green brings out my eye colour and the red just brightens me up !

Eva Marie Taylor said...

Fuchsia is definitely your color! Looks great on you! I think my color is any shade of a bluish green.

Anna said...

gorgeous. :)
I really like wearing my maroon and grey scrubs. I think those colors work well for me. My mom loves dark green clothes.

Martha Woods said...

It's definitely "you"! Green is my color.

Nathyness said...

It's a lovely dress, and the color is phenomenal. I love all kinds of pinks and corals, so this is right up my alley.
I think my color is definitely orange-y coral.. Hard to describe it, although I'm sure it has a name.

Patty said...

The color looks good with your skin tone! I've never ordered dresses from eshakti...I think my favorites to wear are blue-ish green that make my eyes pop or coral pink (esp. in the summer time...which at this rate in Michigan, is never coming ;)

Anonymous said...

Super cute dress and you look so vibrant and gorgeous in it!! I am all about colors, i used to be a cobalt blue girl, but now i am all over the place..hahah :)

Erika from America said...

I feel like such a stalker but are these pictures at the East Grand Rapids library? Because I totally used to frequent that place back when I lived in the neighborhood!

ANYWAY, you look so great in this color! Beautiful!

Ellen from Ask Away said...

while i love pink, everyone says greens and blues look great on me because of my eyes!

chantilly said...

I love the blue streak in your hair! My favorite color is mint, even if I'm not really sure it looks good on me... haha!

xo!
Chantilly

Corlie said...

Definitely your colour! Mine would be dark green, sort of bluey dark green. Same colour as my eyes and it makes the colour of my eyes pop!
I've never hears of this stort but will have a look for sure. Its really hard for me to find clothes in Yunnan!

Kristen Hewitt said...

I love it and that company! Just checked them out! Stopping by from SITS Sharefest!

Sandra Kohlmann said...

I love to wear bright and rich colors, like fuschia, deep purple, red, burnt orange, and olive green. However, I feel most comfortable in navy, charcoal, and black.

Cyndi Murdoch said...

That is a great color on you! I wear clothes that I feel comfortable and confident. I have long given up buying clothes in bright colors, because they just hang in my closet, But I envy those that wear bright colors with panache. I do wear muted greens and oranges with my neutrals, however. Just stopping by from SITS.

Anastasia Wildcraft said...

I did not know that about eShakti! When I first read it, I thought you tailored it yourself after ordering.

I don't know if Orange is my color, but I seem to love it because I own lots of it!

Veronica Lee Burns said...

this dress is excellent on you, the color is definitely your color. I love the fit to it too!

have a great week!
