eShakti. Dress for me - dress for you!

I love dresses and dressing up. It's true I love lounging in yoga pants and a tank but if I have the chance to dress up - I will.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I was contacted by eShakti  to do a review of one of their products! I mean who wouldn't be!
I was slightly overwhelmed looking at their site  - they have so many incredible items!
First of all let me tell you a little about what makes eShakti special...

"eShakti is a unique women’s apparel store online that allows custom changes in the style of the garment – sleeve, neckline, length can all be changed by the customer to her preference.
eShakti’s custom capabilities allow shoppers to easily tailor any item to their specific requirements ensuring a flattering fit and unique look. Built-in online customization tools allow women to modify original fashions to fit their size, shape and personal style. Unlike traditionally-tailored clothing, eShakti’s incredibly quick turnaround time allows customers to receive their custom-made look within a week of ordering!
Many of the pieces available are reminiscent of the past, combining feminine details and dressmaker finishes for today's modern woman. Dresses, skirts, tops, cardigans, jackets and scarves are available in a wide array of fabrics and colors ranging from size 0 to 26W and Custom."

How amazing is that! You can make the item perfect for your body!

I am so indecisive that it took me a while to decide on this dress.
It jumped out at me right away though so I went with my first impression.
I chose the Chevron geo print maxi
When I placed my order, I specified my height, my size and what length I wanted the dress. You could also be more specific and give them exact measurements to your shoulders, hips, bust, waist etc to ensure a perfect fit.
I just went with a standard size 4 based on their description but told them how tall I am.
It is on the longer side but I think it would be perfect for a wedding and I paired it with wedges.
Earlier this week during one of my visit with Whitney - she snapped a few photos of me in it...
 The back is very pretty, it has a twist in the fabric.
I love how flowy it is...
And I LOVE the print!

(thank you soooo much Whit - beats my mirror photos!)

My dress is beautifully made and I think it's very versatile - you can make it very dressy or dress it down for a dinner out.

The eShakti website is constantly adding new items too! 
There are so many more dresses I love now that are new since I ordered. 
Here are a few...

This is so cute for summer! This woudl be the dress I would pick today!

I would choose the "Banded Waist Poplin Dress" in the coral pink color. Tough choice, though! I live in dresses and would love to add lots of these to my collection. :)

And I'm a follower! And a new reader - via Leigh. :)

Jenny Hill said...

I can't pick! There are so many dresses I want - but I think I would pick one of the belted Poplin dresses.

Love this give away - I need a few clOthing companies to help me out with my wardrobe.

krink said...

Okay... first of all I have to say the dress looks beautiful on you! And while I didn't think it would look that good on me, you would not believe how many compliments I got on it at the Garden Party this weekend! So many people were asking me where I got it. And who knew it could work for a pregnancy dress too?!
But if I had the lucky opportunity to choose which dress I would pick I would have to say it would be the: Soigne sequined dress STYLE # CL0024158
Thank you again for letting me borrow this gorgeous dress! And I will email you pictures tomorrow!

Holly said...

I think I might pick the Walking on Sunshine dress. Loved that we picked the same dress to do review :)
