What to Wear to a Graduation (or Graduation Party)

My sister Jenny graduated from high school today!  She worked so hard and I am so proud of her many accomplishments!  We celebrated both her graduation and Father's Day yesterday.  It was a gorgeous day for a party, so I wore this pretty floral dress that eShakti sent me to review.  This lightweight cotton dress was perfect for the party.  If I hadn't worn it yesterday it would have been perfect for the actual graduation today too.  I am so glad that I found out about eShakti!  It is an awesome online company offering both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36.  I picked this floral dress in a sleeveless style with a boat-neck line and just above the knee length.  I sent eShakti my measurements and a few weeks later they sent me this custom made dress!  The pictures below illustrate the idea.

One dress - you pick the style options that work best for you!

The dress fit me almost perfectly, which is pretty great for not having tried it on at all.  eShakti only charges $7.50 for the customization option, which I highly recommend.  Almost all of eShakti's items are under $100, with most of the dresses around $60 or so.  For the graduation party, I skipped a necklace and instead wore statement earrings and my mini pink purse.  The sun was pretty strong so I also put on my Tory Burch shades and threw on this big neutral hat I found at T.J. Maxx.  It was perfect for keeping the sun out of eyes while playing some intense yard games (washers and cornhole) with my siblings and cousins!

  6. That is the most gorgeous floral dress. I will be reviewing one of their dresses soon. Cannot wait. I also love your hat and the fact that it isn't too wide. =)


  7. Thanks for sharing your information.The insights are really helpful and informative.
    The dress itself is very comfortable and easy to wear.

    These are so pretty! This dress is absolutely gorgeous!
    I actually ending up not needing it for what I initially purchased it for, but I kept it because it was so nice and very reasonable.
