I’m finding that the busier I get each year, the less time I spend actually going to stores and shopping for my wardrobe updates. I still love sifting through racks of clothes, but finding the time is hard and frustrating, especially during the holidays. So, when eShakti.com, a custom clothing apparel website, offered to send me a custom dress of my choice, I couldn’t turn it down! eShakti has amazing styles ranging from size 0-36 and they boast a claim of creating “real fashion for real people.” I’m down with that!
I chose a dress based on a more demure style. I wanted something I could wear to teach. Though, if you’re looking for something to wear to a NYE party or other more formal gathering, there are plenty of options!
I measured myself with a simple tape measure and followed their sizing chart directions. After taking my measurements, I ordered a size 6. It fit well everywhere I measured (bust, hips, waist), and the neckline allowed me to wear a small necklace or a scarf. I loved how it looked both with the cardigan and without!
The length of the dress fell nicely with my flat shoes that I was wearing in this photo, and it also fell nice with a short heel both of which I wear to work on a daily basis. I also liked the bright colors of the birds and how it matched with the khaki. This dress could probably be seen as plain color-wise, but the blues, yellows, and reds warm it up. I’d most likely wear this throughout the Fall and even Spring since the sleeves are 3/4 length. This dress is a soft cotton which needs a quick press after washing, too! Iron this dress after you wash and dry it and press it to make the pleats pop.
My good friend got me really into birds which went into my major reasoning for choosing this dress. Here is the close-up of the skirt with the pleats and the print design. How cute, right?
So, check them out and let me know what you think. With the holidays coming up save yourself some time and get a custom outfit that will wow everyone!
