Happy Wednesday! Last week this time I was in NYC for a business/pleasure trip celebrating Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon. [ICYMI, read about the naming ceremony event and get a first look>>here.] When I first received the invite I thought to myself… What am I going to wear? So for today’s “What I Wore Wednesday” post, I am sharing and showcasing the answer to my question. I wore a beautiful dress from eShakti.

SHOP THE LOOK: Dress, Sunglasses, Shoes, similar here, Necklace, similar here and Red Lipstick 💋of course!

eShakti is an online clothing store that will deliver unique clothes for women right to your door! Many have raved about this brand because they give you the opportunity to customize clothes to your exact size, height and your preferred style. I’ll admit when it comes to online shopping, especially for dresses, I enjoy going to the store and trying things on first. What I enjoyed about eShakti is that I can design the neckline, sleeve or length of the dress plus flaunt it with or without pockets! For the record, I am Team #pocketdress.

Not only am I a fan of pocketdresses, but I am a fan of themes, so with it being a cruise related event that I was attending and Fleet Week in NYC, I chose to be nautical but nice with eShakti‘s Anchor Embellished Stripe Cotton Knit Blouson Dress. I decided to play up the pop of red color in the anchor with accessories. I already had a pair of Guess red heels that went perfectly. But know that this Mom always has a back up pair of shoes if the occassion calls for it. For the press conference and tour of Carnival Horizon, I switched to a black sandal. This dress is not only comfortable but versatile. You can dress it up or make this into a casual look.

Nautical stripes are synonymous with Spring/Summer style but what I enjoyed about this dress is that it was not the typical blue and white theme but a black/white/red color scheme. This blouson dress tailored with demure dolman sleeves in stripe cotton knit with an embellished anchor and playful cord combined comfort + cute in a chic way!

However, If you want a blue/white nautical dress, eShakti‘s Nautical Print Georgette Dress is another beautiful choice. In fact they have a variety of dresses that will suit anybody and ANY BODY. eShakti is the only brand in the world that offers size 0-36W & Custom Size!

Part I #MyVioletValentine Shopping Picks + Fun #ValentineGift Ideas ~ CrabTree Valley Mall @ShopCrabtree

#MyVioletValentine Shopping Experience at CrabTree Valley Mall

If you have been following my Instagram @SobeSavvy, then you may have seen my instastories and posts about a new series I am starting just in time for Valentine’s Day called #MyVioletValentine. 💜

In honor of the Pantone Color of the Year: Ultra Violet, I want to inspire you to switch up from the usual color red and make violet purple purchases this Valentine’s Day for yourself or loved ones. With over 200+ stores and restaurants, Crabtree Valley Mall is the perfect place in Raleigh to kick off this series! There are so many great places to ‘SHOP in the name of Love’ just like the sign outside of Bevello says…so let’s get started!

Here are a few ideas for Girls:

Accessories from Claire’s

New Athleta Girl fashions at Athleta

Hallmark for cards + candy

There’s also Purple Disney characters like Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, Rapunzel available at The Disney Store and fun fashions like this graphic tee from The Children’s Place!

Speaking of fashion, everywhere I looked in the mall there were awesome sales on purple clothing,shoes..take your pick! You must remember to gift yourselves ladies this Valentine’s Day. Check out these gift ideas for HER:

Purple Sweater, Violet Floral Top from American Eagle Outfitters

Find February’s gemstone, Amethyst and other purple gemstones in any of the jewelry stores including Swarovski at Crabtree Valley Mall. I found a beautiful cocktail ring at Sears, which is one of three anchor department stores at the mall.

You can also find Handbags from Coach or Michael Kors, purple candles from Yankee Candle, and shades of violet at your favorite cosmetic stores: Bare Minerals, MAC or Sephora.

Loving this MAC matte lipstick, color: Heroine

As I began to look for things my husband would like, I noticed there were quite a few His & Her Options throughout the mall. Got yours eyes on gifts for a special guy? Here’s some ideas for HIM:

Cool Shades from Aeropostale

..and Sunglass Hut!

Everyone loves a good smelling man right?! Pick up a nice smelling fragrance for the both of you at any of the anchor department stores, Sephora and these from Aeropostale.

Remember those tops I saw at American Eagle Outfitters? While there, I noticed boxers that were perfect for #MyVioletValentine! I plan to box up these (along with a few other surprises) and present on Valentine’s Day, which is just 9 days away!

SobeSavvy Tip: Still can’t decide what to get for him or her? Give “The Gift of Choice”, a Crabtree Valley Mall Gift Card available for as little as $5 or as much as $500! Gift Cards are available at Guest Services.

We had so much fun shopping for #MyVioletValentine at Crabtree Valley Mall and hope you are inspired to make your way there soon!
