eShakti eShocked me



Hello there my friends!  Welcome to my very first "outfit" post, AND my first product review!  I was recently contacted by eShakti to do a product review for their clothing site.  I was like..... "wha?  me??"  I was so shocked!  Because, well, I don't post photos of me and clothes on my blog.  I decided to give it a whirl, and man, was I so glad I did.


eShakti is an up and coming clothing website that allows the customer to customize pieces by size and embellishment.  There are hundreds of adorable pieces to choose from, but then, the best part..... you can alter anything you want.  I chose the high collar double weave dress, which originally had really short sleeves, and a longer skirt.  I altered it to have 3/4 length sleeves and a short skirt, to give it more of a 50s feel.  Also, I was able to enter in my measurements so the dress was sure to fit like a dream.


It took quite a long time for the dress to get to me..... about a month.  BUT.. when I opened the package and tried the dress on, I couldn't believe I hadn't been using this website for years.  Let's be honest..... I've got some big tatas, and this baby's got back, so it's really uplifting for me to have a dress fit like a glove the minute it comes out of the box.


The quality of this dress is really quite fantastic.  The fabric is sturdy, but not heavy, and I don't feel like it's going to fall apart in the washer.  It does wrinkle if I move, but hey, not such a bad con right?  And get this all you Dirty Dancing lovers out there- it twirls!  Like, show my underwear like Patrick Swayze's dancing with you twirl.  Ah sigh.... love that.  This day was soooo windy (as you can tell from my SWEET bang action), and the dress discovered a mind of it's own.  Pretty sure I flashed at least 3 people.


Overall I am very very happy with my experience with eShakti.  Although a lot of their pieces are a bit on the conservative side for me, it is the perfect website for the best fitting little black dress, or the best fitting every day skirt, or the best fitting...... well...... you catch my drift.  Thinking my next dress will be the contrast trim poplin dress.


Outfit details:  dress: c/o eShakti; belt: target; tights: Hue; shoes: Modcloth; purse: Xmas gift, made by a friend.


So..... what are you waiting for????  Check it out!

    I actually just order my very first eshakti dress a few days ago & I cant wait to get it. I also chose a elbow length fit & flare black dress. I dont think you can ever have too many LBDs.
