You might recall that I recently posted about shopping for a Holiday party we will be having and how stressful that can be? Well, while getting all of the entertaining supplies was a bit harrowing, finding the perfect dress for the occasion was easy. Almost TOO easy. You see, I have often had a hard time finding that perfect dress. I am a size 6-8 in pants, but when it comes to dresses, all bets are off. I am a bustier gal, and more often than not, if a dress fits my tatas, it's a tent everywhere else. On the flipside, if the dress fits my body, it squishes my "gals", making them look flattened and odd. Needless to say, dress shopping has always been a bit of a challenge for me. Until now, that is!
Recently, I was contacted by eShakti about reviewing a piece of their designer, custom clothing. I hadn't heard of this company before, so I decided to check out their site before agreeing. What I found was a woman's dream come true! Let me tell you a bit about eShakti and what makes them a cut above the rest in the fashion world. Shakti means power in Sanskrit. eShakti lives up to their name completely by giving a woman total power over the garments she purchases at their online boutique. You see, not only do they offer classically beautiful, feminine looks in sizes 0-26, all of their garments can also be fully customized just for YOUR unique body. You can shop by predetermined size or you can have a garment made specifically catered to your measurements, ensuring a figure flattering result every single time.
On top of custom measurements, you can also revise certain details of your tops, pants and dresses from eShakti. Some of the common alterations include skirt length, type and length of sleeve, as well as neckline. Never before have women had so many options when shopping for clothing! What makes this even better? Not only is every piece 100% satisfaction guaranteed, they are also offered at extremely affordable prices that won't break the bank. You can look like a million dollars and not have to spend an arm and a leg.
Take a look at some of my top Holiday picks from eShakti. These dresses are classy, feminine, and perfect for that Holiday party or even New Year's Eve!
I was thrilled to receive the Bow-Front Corset Style Dress from the nice folks at eShakti for my review. This dress is absolutely gorgeous and has that 1940's pin-up feel to it. I love the bright, vibrant red and the black trim at the hemline and neckline. After carefully reviewing the sizing chart at eShakti, I decided to order a standard sized dress, but also included my bra size to ensure a great fit. (Yes, you can do that!) Ordering my dress was easy and surprisingly painless, and I was shocked at the super-fast turnaround time. I had my dress on my doorstep, neatly packaged, in less than a week!
When I opened my package, I was immediately struck by the superior quality of this garment. It is made of a 98% cotton/2% spandex blend, making it soft, flowy, and very comfortable to wear. I also love the banded hem with contrast trim and the contrast neckline. I think the black on red really makes this dress pop! I also love the below the knee length. While the dress is definitely sexy enough for date night, it is also modest enough for family gatherings and other more toned-down occasions. This dress also features an elastic-smocked back for added comfort as well as a hidden side-zipper. Side-zipper closures have never been my friend, since I have a lot going on in the boobage department, but this dress fit like a dream! One more very neat thing I discovered about the Bow Front Corset Style Dress is that it has a hidden pocket! Yes! A pocket! You can't see it though, since it's hidden in the seam of the dress. Ingenious! The folks at eShakti really do pay a great deal of attention to detail, making each of their creations a work of art.
Another awesome thing about the dress? It's machine washable! So even if the babies attack me with sticky fingers, I don't have to rush to the nearest dry cleaners. That's a HUGE plus in my home since we have 2 toddlers running around. Messes happen, and they happen often. I usually don't wear many of my nicer dresses around the kids because I fear they'll get ruined. With my beautiful dress from eShakti, this is not an issue. I think I have a new favorite dress!
Overall, I was absolutely blown away by my experience with eShakti. Their selection of custom women's clothing is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for women of all ages. I love the classic, feminine, and even flirty styles they have to offer. I have even created an eShakti wish list since there are so many pieces I have fallen hopelessly in love with. On top of a great selection of some of the most beautifully designed pieces of clothing I have seen in some time, their customer service is outstanding, turnaround lightning fast, and the quality of their garments rivals anything you'd find on the runway or at pricey boutiques. I also love the fact that each piece can be customized especially for my body and my personal tastes. I know where I will be shopping from now on whenever I need a fashion boost!
