I feel like I’ve just figured out MY style so when eShakti reached out to me about doing a review I checked out their site and was immediately hooked. I mean with a tag line of We Design, You Customize I knew it was meant to be.
The dresses are totally my style, a bit of vintage with a modern feel, but what separates this company from others is the customization aspect. There are multiple ways you can customize your dress, skirt or shirt and with sizes ranging from 0-36W it really is Real Fashion for Real People.
So how do they customize? The 1st way is by having someone take all your measurements and for $7.50 they will make a dress to your size. Way less than having a seamstress alter that new dress.
When it comes to length they give you lots of options depending on your style and what looks good on you.
My favorite feature is changing the sleeves and or neckline. I have a hard time finding dresses to wear in the fall and winter and being able to make something a short or 3/4 sleeve makes it worth the $7.50. I’ve got my eye on a few different dresses, but they have new things everyday so don’t wait to order that dress. Another bonus is ALL the dresses have pockets. That’s huge for me. I love having pockets in my dresses.
I had a difficult time choosing which dress I wanted to review but in the end I loved this dotted retro poplin dress. It’s made of cotton so I’ll need to iron it, but I love that the dots are embroidered. I decided to change the sleeve from a cap to a short sleeve so I could wear it in the fall and winter. It was a tough choice, but I’m glad I decided on this. I love this dress, and feel like it’s perfect for work, a day in the city or a special event. I styled it with a 40’s feel by adding a vintage purses, heels a fun bun, and my favorite pearls. Classic and flirty!
The one thing I wish the site would do is show you what the dress would look like with the different options. Changing the sleeve or neckline can change the whole style of the dress and I want to make sure it’s the look that I want, but right now you have to trust your gut.
I totally recommend giving eShakti a try. The dresses are affordable, unique, functional and just plain cute.
