I was lucky enough to do an eShakti review over two years ago. Since then, I have been drooling over some of their things and waiting to work with them again. Thankfully, they reached out to me again this fall to introduce their new fall line. eShakti allows you to customize your clothing by picking a different length, cut, specific size measurement, or color (depending on the item). I knew I had to pick a pretty dress and I wanted something that wasn’t a tanktop up top.
So, I selected the ruffle cascade dress and customized it. I added the sleeve to it. However, I kept the rest of the details. I went with a standard size and its cut since they look nice. Let me start my saying that I love the color. It’s a bit different than what is pictured on the site (I think). However, it’s very fall-esque and pretty. It goes well with my skin tone and hair color.
I also found that the ruffles looked pretty… just not so much on me. I don’t think it does me any favors. I wish they didn’t go all down the front of dress. I did see some new additions to the site since I made my selection and they don’t have as many ruffles. So, I would probably change my pick if I were to do it now. I also was a bit let down with the sizing. As you can see in one of the pictures, my bra strap is shown from time to time (if I’m not careful). Also, it was tight in the shoulder and upper arm area. I’m not sure what that’s about as I don’t usually have that problem.
I think it’s wonderful that eShakti allows us to make customizations to their clothing. It makes my wardrobe really suit me. Many of their pieces look beautiful. I am already eyeing something for the future. I guess I just need to pay better attention to the measurements and keep my body shape in mind when making decisions.
So, what do you think of my dress? How did your experience with eShakti go?
