It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

by thedemuremuse on December 12, 2011

It’s been a busy week! Most of my evenings have been filled with running to the city to furiously shop for Christmas presents. The one thing I love about the holidays are how festive cities start to look. Over the last week or so, Seattle’s been sprucing up all the leafless trees, replacing the branching with strings of lights!

Because it’s rarely ever sunny these days, the lights are a super cute touch to the otherwise overcast city life.

outfit details:
scarf & mittens: gift from my mom / jacket: c/o eShakti / boots: Go Jane
bag: H&M (circa 2005!!) / glasses: Derek Cardigan 7004 in black

I recently got this jacket from eShakti, which is an online store that specializes in ready-to-wear or custom sized clothing. My one biggest annoyance with buying a pea coat is the fact that the sleeves always end up being too short for my arms. Thankfully, I was able to add my measurements to my order and the jacket arrived in just over a week’s time!

I love that this coat hits right above my knees, making it perfect for bundling up over a dress! I also really like the weight and warmth of the coat while still maintaining quite the flattering silhouette. If you’re between sizes, I would definitely check out eShakti! The prices are incredibly reasonable considering you’re getting custom tailored clothes with a quick turnaround time.

eShakti is offering $20 off any purchase until Dec 31 with the code: DEMURE0811
I’ve definitely got my eye on a couple of their glittery dresses which I think would be perfect for the holiday/NYE parties!
