Wild Card Wednesday: Emerald City

Happy Wednesday!  Sorry that I missed Monday’s post – I am still sick!  Ugh!!

Tunic:  eShakti (Available here)

Since I’m sick, I have really been craving comfortable options more than usual, so for St. Patrick’s Day, I came up with this casual option.

Jacket:  Torrid (Available here)

Being so short but also curvy, it can be nearly impossible to get a proper fit.  I love companies that offer custom-fit clothing because it really helps eliminate the need for a tailor. While I am used to having to take everything to a tailor, it’s still a bummer to buy clothes only to have to wait a week or two to wear them.

While there are few custom retailers I love, eShakti is the largest of them with the widest, most varied selection.

Booties:  life+style by Sonoma
Glasses:  Valentino

In addition to custom fit, eShakti offers custom styling options.  I decided to make this tunic into a dress by lengthening the hem.  I also shortened the sleeves as I prefer 3/4 length sleeves on my petite frame.

The emerald green color is so pretty.  The trapeze cut is fun, and the v-neckline is flattering.  It’s one of those great versatile pieces that works well with tights in the winter but will also be easy and breezy come summer.

Clutch:  Target

For today’s look, I added a faded denim jacket and comfy booties for an easy vibe.

What colors would you pair with emerald?  Have you tried a custom-fit dress?  Are you wearing green for St. Paddy’s Day?
