I've got glasses! Mr. Daddy took me to the doctor last week and found that I'm far-sighted with strabismus (that means cross-eyed). Which means that I get to wear new pink glasses!
What are your tips for keeping them comfortable and keeping them on through the day?

There are many signs in the air that Fall is coming...most importantly the release of eShakti's new Fall 2013 line.
eShakti makes lovely, classic dresses with simple, delicate, and sometimes whimsical embellishments. They size from 0-36, including entering your own measurements for complete customization. Luckily, I fit perfectly within their size 6 so knew this dress would also fit like a glove.
Even with custom ordering, eShakti's promise is to ship and mail within 18 calendar days - so I was very impressed when I got a text from DHL certified mail to either be home (haha) or okay them to deliver my dress only 9 days after I ordered my sample!
My favorite thing about eShakti is the ability to customize aspects of the dress. My sample choice let me customize the sleeve option (I replaced sleeveless with cap sleeves) and length (replaced knee-length with above-knee, after all). Plus...POCKETS! For any mommy, auntie or lady knows - pockets should be comfortable, convenient and invisible.
I'm enamored of the coral color of the skirt and think it will be perfect to wear for the last few days of summer or throw on a sweater as we transition into fall. For someone who spends a lot of time with kids personally and professionally, I love how light and easy this dress feels. eShakti scored big on all accounts!
eShakti is currently having a $30 gift code for new customers.
Just for kicks - here are a few of my other favorite eShakti dresses for Fall:

Here are the directions:
- Find some fabric (this is from a sheet Ms. Mommy found on super sale...I helped find the sheets with the red stickers)
- Cut it out in shape dress (trace along one of your favorite dresses)
- Sew it together
- Add pearls and sequins

Well, not entirely wordless...since I can't let Earl get in the first and last word.
But I can sum up my summer in only one picture:

Hello, old friends! After a long summer hiatus, Petunia and I are back again to help point out the best and worst in fashion trends, accessorizing, DIY projects, and tips on troublemaking.
So I've decided to sum up my summer in two pictures:
