eShakti is an online company specializing in women's fashion clothing. Their sizes range from 0-36W as well as doing custom pieces made to your measurements. You are also able to customize your item to your specifications: you can change the neckline, sleeve length, overall length of the dress, and remove pockets and other embellishments. It's pretty neat! Essentially, two people can order the exact same dress and have it be completely different! I also love that a lot of their designs have a 50's vintage feel to them. Very unique compared with all the same types of dresses you find in stores nowadays.
When choosing a dress to review, I knew I wanted a fun dress for the summer; there were so many cute styles to choose from! I ended up getting the Sharon Dress in yellow.
I measured myself to check what size I would be and it ended up being that my lower half was one size while my upper half was one size smaller. Rather than choosing the larger of the two sizes, I decided to upload my measurements to get a custom piece created. I was super nervous about this because I've never got a custom piece made before! But it fit very well! I was very impressed!
I decided to keep the pockets, because who doesn't love pockets in a dress! I decided to leave the neckline as listed, but got the dress knee-length instead of below the knee.
Cardigan: Old Navy
Necklace: Edith Marie
Earrings and bracelets: Target
I also love that this dress has little snaps in the strap to keep your bra in place! Because no one likes bra straps with a mind of their own...
I do have to say there is only one thing I don't like about this dress: it's made from 100% cotton, so it wrinkles like crazy! I wore it to church and on the drive over I got all sorts of little wrinkles when sitting in the car. I guess I just have to dust off my iron more often :)
