eshakti- a dress made just for you

3.08.2013

I love online clothes shopping. You can window shop in your pajamas. Plus, getting packages in the mail is pretty dang fun! But what I hate is that often even though websites list the model's measurements, it just doesn't seem to add up. Ok, so a 5'11 model can wear a dress and it actually fits her like a dress. But then when I (at 5'7) receive the same exact size in the mail it barely covers my rear? What gives?

What if you gave buyers a 'base' dress that they could customize the length, neckline and sleeve length? Enter eShakti, an online customizable clothing website. Maybe you prefer your dresses to be a little bit longer. Perhaps you have tattoos and need to wear something more conservative for a specific event. Or you might be shorter and don't want to be stumbling all over the hem of your skirt. Not a problem. You can even enter your exact measurements for a dress that fits YOU like a glove.
When eShakti contacted me about reviewing one of the dresses from their Spring line, I couldn't refuse. I have worked with them in the past, and it's always been a pleasant experience. Plus, could I really say no to a new dress for Easter?

I had a hard time narrowing it down to just one dress, but I thought about summertime in Alabama, and ended up choosing a very lightweight dress so I would be able to wear it into the warmer months without sweltering. Plus, when I saw the green feathered printed dress, I knew this was the one. Green is my favorite color, but I didn't own anything in this particular shade.
I love it! It's so comfortable and breezy.
 Oh, and did I mention it has pockets? I love clothes that have pockets where I can stash whatever junk my kids drop along the way.
Just what you wanted, a (nonexistent) chest shot.

My initial dress had cap sleeves, which I don't think look so good on me. (I have strange shoulders and I end up feeling like a linebacker.) But I absolutely love tops and dresses with flowy sleeves, so I chose a flowy elbow length option instead.

Until March 20th, eShakti is giving my readers a $25 coupon code. Just use code DELRSRHPSD18 at checkout. And be sure to check out the website regularly. They get new fabrics weekly, but when they run out, it's gone. I went to find the link for the particular dress that I ordered, and it was sold out.

Do you have any experience with eShakti? What did you think?

That is so cool! I have the worst time finding dresses that actually fit me. Same problem, why does my butt have to hang out?! I am definitely going to check this out and hopefully give it a try. :)

Your dress looks great on you!

Oh my! Your dress is adorable! I love the pattern and the buttons. Too bad that print is sold out; I would have chosen that! I've never been a dress type of girl but I think you have converted me!

I love this idea! It's so hard to fit into the one-size-fits-all mold most designers have adopted so this is a great alternative to those of us who aren't built just like a mannequin!
