Femininity vs. Feminism: Explained

Hi, everyone!

     How has your summer been? I feel like I've barely talked to any of you over these past few months!! I miss our heart-to-hearts!! Today, I just want to get something out there that has been on my heart for almost a year now, but I never could think of a good angle to take with it. Let's just take this time to pour our hearts onto the table and be honest with each other, and with ourselves, shall we?

     Well... in the process of being a blogger + writing a lot + having to explain what I write about + having to explain who I am, I ended up falling into the deep end of labels. It was kind of a panic/claw for the surface/I can't breathe moment when I realized that to be a real-deal blogger, I was going to have to box myself in. I was supposed to find one niche, and be able to communicate said niche so the people that belonged to my blog would find me.

     Why did this scare me?, you might be wondering. Well, it probably goes back to the fact that I've always been kind of peculiar. Titling my personal blog with that exact adjective was even my idea. I'm super unique and odd and set-apart, and not only am I okay with that, but I love it!! But now I have a blog. So I can only be like five adjectives. I can only have like three hobbies, and one of them should be photography. Boxed in.

     In the semi-organized chaos of it all, I've not only learned several new descriptive phrasing techniques, but I've also discovered who I am. Not that it wasn't always there; I just know how to communicate it to everybody else, now. Included in my extra-large box with about a bazillion other little things that make me who I am, I now feel comfortable proclaiming:

     I am a feminine anti-feminist.

     Wait. Did you just catch that? Yeah, that's what I thought. You might need to read it twice.

     ... feminine anti-feminist? What on earth?

     I can see your gears turning.

     But it's true!!

     Care to dig into the why with me?

eShakti Dress Review + Discount Code // by Elizabeth

So many of my friends and fellow bloggers have been talking about eShakti for some time now, and I've been wanting to try them for myself! So to say I was thrilled when eShakti contacted me about doing a review for them, would be the understatement of the year!

The hardest part was choosing a dress! There were so many options to choose from, and knowing that I could change out the neckline, sleeves, and length of a dress gave me even more options! Talk about analysis paralysis (lol!). But I finally chose this dress- the Metal Zip Pocket Cotton Knit Dress!! I'm also going to show y'all some more of my favorite picks, at the end of this post.

 I was a little nervous about getting this dress. I had never had a custom dress before, so I was afraid I would measure something wrong! I did have a couple of questions, but I called customer service and they were so very helpful! :) Once I got the dress and tried it on, I found that it fit perfectly. Seriously, I have never had a dress fit me so well! It's as if this dress was made just for me....wait, it was! (Lol!)
