The Fat Girl in Floral

 I rarely wear floral as I feel like often it ages me but with this month's Ahead of the Curve theme 'Garden Party' I decided to really challenge myself.

I knew if I was going to go with floral it needed to be a vintage inspired dress.  When I ordered this dress from eShakti I was nervous about it and I expected I was probably going to hate it on me and return it.  I was pleasantly surprised.

The details on the dress are quite nice and the fabric is lovely, light and airy, with a nice flow.  The cardigan is from Old Navy.

This dress is called Ribbon Tied Rose Halter Dress and is currently available from eShatki in off the rack sizes 0 to 36W, as well as custom sizing and options.  This dress is a nice one to get your feet wet with eShatki because it has an elastic stretch panel in the back and a generous skirt to allow for a bit of leeway in the fit.
I'm ready to virtually enjoy tea, mint juleps, scones, and cucumber sandwiches with the rest of my beautiful Ahead of the Curve bloggers.  Please show them some love by visiting their take on this month's Garden Party by clicking on the link below.
