One of the things on our 2015 vision board is to go on more dates. That means that I actually need to have a dress that doesn’t date back to 2010, when I last worked in an office setting and therefore couldn’t rock yoga pants 24/7.
I turned to eShakti to find a dress that might serve multiple purposes (date night, a memorial service, media events) and I was definitely not disappointed. I got exactly what I was looking for in this leafy vine embellished crepe dress and I got it customized so that it would fit me just right.
The fit-and-flare look flatters my figure, so I started with that silhouette in mind. Then I customized this dress in a few ways. I believe its default pattern is to hit in between the knee an the ankle. This is a really bad look for a short, curvy figure, because it just cuts you off. So I told eShakti my height and asked that the dress be knee-length for me (knee-length for someone who is 5 foot 10 is different, hence the need to specify how tall I am).
I also had these sweet little sleeves added. I thought it made the dress a touch more conservative and season-less, which is what I wanted. I thought it turned out great!
And finally, I went for pockets, which I LOVE SO MUCH! Dresses with pockets are so smart and so practical. I was thrilled to be able to include that in the order.
But here’s the thing I want you to know: adding in all these customized elements was as simple as entering a little bit of information and clicking some options. You don’t have to be an amateur dress designer to come up with something that will work for you. eShakti walks you through the process and makes it simple to get what will work best for you. Also, customizing is just an additional $7.50 fee, which is crazy affordable. The dress I got, for example is currently on sale for $71.95 and if you customize it, the price goes up to $79.45. That’s pretty much paying an off-the-rack price for a custom dress. I don’t think you can beat that price!
I definitely recommend that you give eShakti a try the next time you find yourself in need of a dress. You’ll be able to find a look that fits you like a glove! Want to learn more about the brand? Connect with them on Facebook, Pinterest & Instagram.
