eShakti is a clothing website for all women, size 0-36. They offer trendy, beautiful clothes at decent prices that are completely customizable. Yep, you read that right. 100% customized. You can choose to order a size based on their sizing guide, or you can choose to enter your own measurements for a completely custom fit. And not only that, but you can choose the length and arm style for a completely custom look.
So after I was offered the chance to order a dress, I perused their website and I fell in love with lots of different things. Seriously, check it out. They have something for everyone. I fell in love with a forest green cowel neck dress.
I love the color, and I have a pair of knee high brown boots I can't wear with many things, and I just knew they would look great with this dress. I chose to order custom with my own measurements, and I chose to shorten it to "above knee length". Being short, most knee length dresses are about 2 inches too long. I wanted something that hit right at my knee so I went shorter.
The days leading up to getting my dress, I played around on Polyvore to come up with some outfit ideas.
I love all of these looks! I love that I can dress the dress up and down and make it work appropriate and still fun for the weekends. I really couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
As soon as it came in the mail, I opened it up and fell in love. The color was exactly as shown on the website, which is awesome because I love it. I was excited and anxious to try it on, and when I did, it fit like a glove. It hugged in all the right places, and flowed in all the other right ones. PLUS it has pockets :)
I do think it's a little short, but that is completely my fault. I didn't trust the truly custom fit, and one of the measurements they take is your height. I still love it tho. Here are some pics :)
I love how it feels and how it fits. It is a very nice material and it flows nicely but still has some structure. Overall, I would say that I honestly would purchase from Eshakti in the future. I found the prices to be very reasonable, especially for a custom dress. They have a large selection of pieces, and I know that they will fit the way I want when I give them my measurements.

*I did receive the green dress pictured for free in return for my writing a review. I was not asked to say anything nice, or anything like that, and the opinion is all my own. I really rely on reviews from real women like me, so I recommend reading as many reviews as you want before making a decision :)
