The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.
~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

For reasons I can’t exactly articulate, I really like that quote. And while flowers and butterflies are both equally unique & beautiful in real life, I also think they are equally as fun as prints.

However, I’m always drawn to florals when selecting a dress. I think this is because finding butterfly print clothing just isn’t as common. It can be a rather unique find. And that’s not the only thing unique about this dress. I had ordered it through eShakti so I was not only able to customize this size, but I was also able to choose if I wanted sleeves and what kind, the length of the dress and if I wanted pockets. (I’m curious, does anyone ever NOT want pockets? Haha.)

I’ve featured eShakti on my blog before, but it has been a while. For those of you who are new here, eShakti is a clothing company that gives you the option to customize your own size clothing as well as customize the style of the clothing to your liking. (A $9.95 fee does apply now for this.) I really like this idea! Especially since I then have the option to add sleeves and make every dress I want midi length – it’s perfect!

Have you ever ordered from eShakti? How did you like it? And are there any other butterfly fans out there? Let me know in the comments!

*Sorry, I had ordered this dress months ago, and my mom was keeping it safe for me until I visited. Therefore, the butterfly print is now sold out. I have linked to eShakti’s other fit and flare dresses below, & some similar colors/styles in the widget below.

  1. This is super cute! Some how I know that I wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I swear, some people look good in anything!

    1. Thank you! And you don’t know until you try! 🙂 But I do get what you mean…my mom is very thin and tall and hates wearing fit and flare dresses like this. But she can rock pencil skirts.. and I look ridiculous in them, haha.

  2. This dress is amazing!!
    I love the idea of eShakti—it’s like having my mom make a dress for me and getting it customized!!

  3. Oh my i love this cute look and ur tights are gorgeous they go so well with this dress could u believe I use to hate this shade of yellow and now I’m a big fan of it!! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! Happy New Year to you and your family!! Dominica from www.its-dominica.blogspot.co.uk

    1. Aw, thank you, Dominica! I wasn’t a big fan of this color either until recently. 🙂 Happy New Year to you as well!

  4. It’s Ok that the print is now sold out, dear Lindsey, cause I know that eShakti has other great dresses, like this one, with nice prints! And maybe it will be released again! I loved the quote and also the print, I love butterflies and the shoes are so sweet! I loved the color scheme as well, and I think you look very beautiful! This dress is really special! Hope you are having a great day! Hugs!

    1. Oh yes, eShakti certainly has many other great dresses. 🙂 And thank you so much, Denise! So glad you enjoyed the outfit and the post! Hope you’re having a great day too! Hugs! 🙂

  5. I typically don’t go for butterflies but this dress is super cute and would totally make me think twice – I think it’s the golden hues. The butterflies are less cartoon-esque and just downright pretty! And the tights match PERFECTLY!

  6. You look so beautiful in these neutral warm tones. I love butterflies! I just have a hard time catching them for photos haha. These tights are the best! You look amazing in these mustard tights and they go perfectly with this lovely print midi dress. I really like this post and no, I don’t like pockets in my dresses most of the time because I don’t like the extra material around my hips. Hope you have a great week!


    1. Aw, thank you, Joanna! Haha, I can never capture them in photos either. Ahh, that makes sense for not wanting pockets. Depending on the dress, the extra fabric could look funny. I’m generally wearing fit and flare or pleated skirts/dresses, so I never really notice the extra fabric. Good point! I hope you have a great week too! 🙂

  7. Fun fact: I’m afraid of butterflies, lol. I love yellow on you and those tights are perfect with this outfit! I also <3 eShakti though I've rarely worn them on my blog or Insta. XO

    1. I knew that I knew someone afraid of butterflies! It was bothering me the whole time I was writing this post that I couldn’t think of who! Haha. Thank you for clearing that up. I must have read it one of your posts. 🙂 And thank you, Lauren! Isn’t eShakti the best? 🙂
