It hasn’t been such a good season for the leaves this year. It seems that most of them just turned brown and there are only a few yellow ones. I’ve hardly seen any red at all. At least my dress is reddish, although it appears slightly lighter in color in photos.
I had this eShakti dress (c/o) customized with longer sleeves so that it would be a better piece for fall and winter. It’s stretch polyester blend and a good weight for fall, winter and spring. It’s also fully lined and made to my measurements, so the fit is great. I love that eShakti takes your height into account– I never receive dresses that are too short or too long. As I get older I find that I prefer hemlines that hit closer to the knee, a more difficult length to find than you would think.

- Aquatalia ankle boots – also in suede
- Commando Opaque Matte tights – great if you want totally opaque, non-shaping tights
- Forever 21 studded envelope clutch – similar
- ken + dana design ring
- Silpada ring
Yes, I wore tights. I actually only made no tights until November last year, so I decided that it would be no tights until November this year as well. Sounds better than no tights until December anyway.
That dress. But of course, it’s from eShakti. I LOVE the color and the fit on you, Alex! That neckline is to die for. And tights. Oh tights. I wear tights all year round! :)
This dress looks like it fits you well, and I do love the color. We had some pretty good leaves earlier, but now they are all dead and gone and most of them are on my car. I love that ring of yours, just because it’s so huge and intense.

i love the dress and the color combo!
Alex, love the burgundy dress, and the way it adds some autumnal richness to the scene. Love the way your can customize your dress, I will remember that brand!

That is a perfect length for you. Very flattering. And I love the swing to the cut.
Gorgeous! Like the color combo!
Yeah it’s been hard to find pretty fall leaves in the city :(
This is another one of those colors that look great on you–just like an autumn leaf. I hope those non-red leaves feel a little ashamed of themselves. Adding sleeves to an eShakti dress is a good idea. I only have two and they’re both sleeveless, which at least lends them well to having cardigans layered over ’em, but dresses with sleeves are so classy-looking and surprisingly hard to find.

I do love dresses with sleeves, but you live in a much warmer climate than I do… those sleeveless ones are probably much more versatile for you!
I love the color of this dress and I like that you added long sleeves for fall. I’m still holding on to no tights, but that’s mainly because I don’t really have any pairs of good tights at the moment!
