Hi everybody! I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend! As spring starts to kick into gear (yes, I’m choosing to ignore the snow flurries we got here yesterday…) I thought it would be fun to devote a post to my favorite winter styles. Click on each picture to access the original post and all the outfit details. Which one is your favorite?

Tunic shirts & cheetah shoes

Hi everybody! Happy Thursday! I’ve been really into tunic shirts lately (last seen here). I’m not sure what it is, but they feel so easy to wear to me. Stick them on with a comfy pair of skinny jeans and a pair of cute shoes and you have yourself an outfit. An outfit that could be worn to work on a casual Friday (at most offices), a weekend brunch, or even a laid back springtime date. Love that.

On top of the good news about the easy outfit (you’re welcome), don’t forget about the other good news I have to offer – the giveaway I’m currently running with eShakti (see how much I love you guys?). See the full post here, but to recap, it’s a giveaway to win a big discount on custom tailored clothing. Which means the clothes fit, and they fit well. So you should enter. Also, two whole people win. Yay!

  2. Like Tailored and True on Facebook

Today I’m so excited to announce a new giveaway in conjunction with eShakti, an online women’s apparel company offering sizes 0-36W & custom clothing. eShakti has some beautiful products to select from, that can be customized for a perfect fit. You can adjust straps, neckline, and hem/inseam length, as well as put in your actual measurements and have the garment made specifically to your liking. I found that the customization option with eShakti was perfect for avoiding any of the strange proportion issues I so often struggle with (think odd hem lengths, arm lengths, or issues with the waistline fit on pants).

The pros: eShakti has a ton of products to choose from, and ordering is easy since they have great explanations of how to properly take your measurements. Fair warning – it’s best if you have a flexible tape measure on hand. I didn’t and I had to get creative with my iPhone charger cord and regular tape measure… struggle.

I will say that I think the biggest issue with ordering from eShakti are the shipping costs. They aren’t cheap. There’s also a $7.50 customization fee. That being said, the clothes themselves are very reasonably priced, and my dress fit perfectly, so if you’re careful measuring you shouldn’t have to worry about returns.

If you’re interested in ordering straight away from eShakti (check out their new arrivals here), use the code “tailoredandtrue” at checkout for a 10% discount! If you want an even bigger discount, you should enter the giveaway! eShakti will be providing two Tailored and True followers with a $25 off coupon each! And this can be combined with the discount code! Double whammy.

The giveaway is open to readers in the US & Canada only (sorry international readers! There will be something for you soon – I promise!). To enter, follow the giveaway guidelines below. All entries will be vetted!

To enter:

  1. Follow Tailored and True on Instagram
  2. Like Tailored and True on Facebook
  3. Go to eShakti.com and select your favorite product. Comment below telling me you’ve completed the other steps and sharing your favorite item.

That’s it! The giveaway will close on Sunday, March 29th at 11:59pm EST, and the two winners will be notified via Facebook.
