A Slice Of Fashion

April 25, 2015
I am sharing a slice of Fashion today and a review of a dress.

Along with some pretty picks for Spring, a little makeup, some nail polish and some

cute clothes for kiddos too.

I have never reviewed clothing before, but when I discovered that eShakti has the capability of

custom making dresses, slacks, blouses and even Wedding and special event items,

I thought it would be of interest to us all.

As I age, less is more, and natural is so much more appealing than overdone.

I enjoy the lightweight feel and coverage of Revlon's PhotoReady BB Cream

plus it protects with a SPF 30 sunscreen.

I despise wearing stockings, and pale legs aren't so attractive, so I have tried many bronzers.

My favorite is Ulta Bronze Glow Tinted Sunless Gelee, it is streak-free and natural looking too.

                                        eShakti provided me with this dress but all opinions are my own. 


eShakti has such a lovely variety of styles, fabrics, colors and prints to choose from.

I actually had difficulty making a choice, but when I saw this chambray dress

with embroidered flowers, my search was over.

As a new customer, register and receive $40.00 off your purchase, plus an extra 10% when you

enter athomewithjemma in the promotional box.

Today I am combining a very comfortable neutral pair of Karen Scott espadrilles, with this dress.

They are on sale at Macy's now, extra 15% off-use promo code STOCK.

eShakti has an amazing ordering process where you can customize every item to your specifications

from the comfort of your home and offering sizes 0-36W.

On most dresses you are able to select your neckline, sleeve length, dress length and whether or not

you would like pockets.

On top of this you give them your measurements so you know your dress is going to be custom

tailored to your body type.

Customer service was top-notch, which is a very big deal to me.

For cool weather, or Church I added a 3/4 sleeve bi-stretch jacket from White House Black Market

I have always had difficulty with thin nails, breakage and polish staying on.

I have so many bottles of nail polish that has dried up, so when my middle daughter suggested I try

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme, I did and I love it.

BB cream and Polish are from Target.

I just love ruffled leggings with everything and headbands with bows.

The coolest fellows always add a striped Polo to a pair of jeans or chinos.

Boots and skirts are always in style in Texas or Oklahoma.

Layer a denim jacket over a dress on a windy afternoon.

Of course when you are two, five or nine you look fabulous in everything!

Thank you to our children for the blessings of Grandchildren, we love YOU!!

Have a lovely weekend and as always...

    1. Nancy,
      Thank you oodles, my Texas friend! It was a breeze to order and so comfy too.
      Oh yes, our grandbabies...our heart!

  3. Jemma, you look so pretty in your new dress. The shoes are cute too. And your grandchildren are adorable models and so cute! Thanks for the review, have a happy weekend!

    1. Eileen,
      Such a breezy dress, so perfect for our Texas Summers. Thank you so much!

  4. Very pretty outfit, Jemma! You look beautiful and those grandchildren are adorable.

    1. Dewena,
      I think I am going to wear more dresses, just so comfortable, no wonder our Mother's wore them!

  5. I just feel for the first time that I have seen the real you - I love it. You are beautiful - and of course your clothes are too - but you are gorgeous! And your grandchildren - are they beautiful or what - you are a lucky and blessed woman.

    1. Sandie,
      You are the best, you know you are one dear woman. Thank you!

  6. You're so pretty Jemma, and your grandchildren! Well, it's clear those apples didn't fall far from the tree.

    I detest stockings too. In fact, I no longer own any. Whoever invented them should be tarred and feathered.

    1. Thank you Doreen, yes most definitely tarred and feathered!

  7. Always fun to see a fashion post. You look fantastic in that dress.
    I like hose/pantyhose/stockings - they keep me warmer (it's rarely hot enough for bare legs here) and make me feel like my outfit is "finished."

    1. Lorrie,
      Truly, it fits really well, I was skeptical naturally, but I will order a dress, pants or shirt from eshakti again. Your weather is gorgeous and cool, so I know stockings are in order.
      Thanks so much!

  8. Hi Jemma! You look so pretty and super comfortable in what you are wearing:) I like your picks at the top too:) xxleslie

  9. You look so cute, Jemma! Love that outfit and thanks for the info on that bronzer! My favorite photo is your little cutie in her boots and orange skirt. Too cute for words. =) blessings ~ tanna

    1. Tanna, you are going to love the bronzer and I imagine you have an Ulta close to you and if not, you can always order it online. It isn't smelly either and thats a double bonus.
      Thanks so much!

  10. The DAME SENT me I mean the DAMES.........HEATHER & JENNIFER!
    Lovely peeking in at all of YOU fashion GALS!

  11. Jemma, I'm so glad to finally see you, you look so pretty in these pictures, and I love the way you're tilting your head and smiling in the first one. What a cute necklace you're wearing. Your grandchildren are precious, you are blessed, indeed.

    I need to go clothes shopping, and you have inspired me, my friend.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Thank you Sheri, I stepped out of my comfort zone for this post. I am truly satisfied with the dress and have worn it out to dinner already! I am thankful and yes Blessed with a healthy, happy family.

  12. Love, love, love!!! You look so pretty, Jemma. I absolutely adore your dress, and your necklace is gorgeous. I agree that less and natural is best these days.

    1. You are such a thoughtful angel and I am so enjoying this carefree dress. So perfect and sensible for these hot humid days and spending time gathering up the grands!

  13. And the pics of the grands are priceless. :)
