As much as I love clothes, I hate trying them on. When it comes to dresses, the top half will fit while the bottom is either too small or too large and vice versa. And as great as tailoring is, it can become way too expensive to fix pieces and sometimes the tailoring isn’t that well done. A couple weeks ago, eShakti contacted me asking me to review one of their products, and I jumped at the chance. eShakti is the saving grace for girls everywhere. I am, like lots of girls, in-between sizes. I have a broad chest, a small waist, and wide hips. It’s not something I’m ashamed of, but it is disheartening when in one store you’re a size 6 while in another you’re a size 8. This is where eShakti comes in.
How it works: Scroll through their (seemingly) endless supply of clothes and choose the items you like. When you choose the size, check their sizing chart and see if the S,M,L will fit well, and if you don’t think it will, customize it to your size. The best part? It only cost $7.50 to make it completely your own. Like the dress, but want pockets? Add them. Wish the sleeves were longer? Make them longer. It’s all about making the item work for you.
My experience: The dress that I picked was this purple velvet dress. I loved everything the dress offered, but I changed the length to be mid calf and customized the dress to fit me in all the right places. Let me tell you, it fits like a glove. Plus, the sewing passed my mother’s very meticulous eyes (she works in the fashion industry, too). It only took about a week to arrive at my doorstep and the material is so beautiful, heavy, and perfect for the winter time. I styled it with a pair of Steve Madden chunky heels, that I think worked beautifully with the flow-y dress. Bring on the winter season!
What are some of your favorite things on the eShakti’s site, and how would you customize it to you? Let me know in the comments! Or just tell me how cool I would look in the movie Zorro in this dress!
