eShakti review: A dress above the rest

I first heard about eShakti, an online clothing boutique, several years ago when my friend Sini used the site to buy a great color blocked dress custom made for her. Until recently, I had forgotten about the site, and the wonderful range of clothing options they provide.  Several weeks ago, I was offered an item to review for eShakti and was so excited to see what they had available.

eShakti has an enormous array of dresses, skirts, blouses and scarves in all sorts of prints, colors and fabrics. What's even more awesome?  The site allows you to buy clothes that are CUSTOM made for you. So, if you love the print of a dress but want it to be v-neck or have longer sleeves, its not a problem.  You also have the option of sending in your actual measurements rather than a dress size when you purchase your item.  For short, curvy gals like myself, this is as Rachel Zoe would say, major. The site also sells a wide range of sizes for all of their items, ranging from size 0 to 26W and they never go out of stock!

I picked this adorable navy printed dress because I loved the pockets, the full skirt, buttons, ruched sleeves and bird print.  After selecting my dress, I pulled out my sewing tape, sent my measurements in and received my made-for-me dress 10 days later.  Pretty awesome.  If you want to get in on the awesomeness, here is a promo code, IDAB0811, you can use to get $20 off your own purchase between now and December 31, 2011.  So get shopping!

Dress -eShakti, Knee Socks - Target, Shoes - Seychelles, Necklace- Nordstrom, Earrings - Cape Cod, Purse -  Colorado,  Sweater- Old Navy, Belt - Filene's Basement


It finally felt like winter yesterday so I layered on a sweater and a belt to keep me warm during jury duty in the drafty courtroom. 


Have a great weekend sweet readers.  I'm hoping to get a sleigh-load of holiday crafting done!

I'm in love with the print the more I see it. The ruched and button detailed sleeves are really cute and love how you've worn it with the knee socks. P.S. I have jury duty (next week)!

Oh my goodness... what a fantastic idea! Dresses are always too short on me, and the waist almost always hits my ribcage! I am going to check this out, thank you so much for a wonderful suggestion!
