Review: eShakti - International Fashion Retailer

Greetings,

I was contacted by fashion retailer eShakti to review one of their garments. eShakti offers a fresh concept in fashion.....customization.  The international retailer offers affordable fashion that is customized to your requests through alterations in the style of the garment, exact size measurements, and length. Now I don't know about you, but I love the concept of having control over the fit of my item as well as the ability to alter the style. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to review one of their products!


I chose the above maxi dress to review from eShakti. I customized my order by requesting the halter neckline. The dress originally had two thin straps.
 
 
 


I love the color and print of the garment.
 
 
 


OMG, I did not realize it had pockets!!!! SWEET! I swear you can get me to buy almost any dress with the addition of pockets, lol.

Pros - The customization feature on eShakti's website is 2nd to none in terms of allowing the customer to feel as if they have contributed to their very on creation. The dress I selected was constructed well and I really love the print and color. I provided my height as requested and I was really happy that the length of the dress ended right at my ankles, as opposed to "pooling" on the floor like most maxi dresses in my closet (I'm vertically challenged). The amount of time it took for me to order the dress and receive the shipment was excellent. I received my dress in less than 2 weeks time! For a customized product from a large retailer........that's pretty awesome.
 
 
Cons -  The fit of the dress was approximately 1 and 1/2 sizes too large. My niece said I looked huge in the dress....ummm, so not good coming from a 16 year old. Also, the material used to construct the dress is a little uncomfortable. It's probably a basic cotton, which can be soft, but once it's treated with dyes, it can get a little rough. This also makes it a challenge to stay wrinkle-free.
 
Overall - I would definitely recommend eShakti despite my personal cons. The vast selection of items, excellent customer service, and prompt shipping are three great reasons to give this fashion retailer a try. Additionally, the company offers sizes from 0-36W and they offer both ready-to-wear AND customized clothes!
 
 
 
Head on over to my friends at eShakti to order your customized garment today!



 
Adeus!

Outfit: Typical Body Con

Greetings Fashionistas,
s'
Thank goodness it's Friday!!! I had to spell that out completely as I am about to have my first day off in 2 weeks. *insert deep sigh here* I'm going to wrap up my "kids" summer break by taking them to a theme park, going to the spa with my mom, and taking the bf out for more birthday shenanigans. I.can't.wait!!!!


 
I was very non-creative when I slipped on this little number. All I know is I had about an hour to make it home from work, shower, get ready, and head out to my friend's birthday celebration.
 
 


 
I didn't even wear a lippie.......however, you know I had the lips glossed to the gods, LOL.
 
Sidebar: Can you believe I was not overdressed at the event???? I felt so regular :-( SMH
 
 


Close-up!
 
 


I wasn't ready....but my 'photographer' snapped anyways. He's such a fat head, lol.

Outfit: Pac and Sunny Yellow

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

After my shift was over on Saturday, I hightailed it to the mall for some much needed retail therapy. Actually, I ended up buying stuff for other people. I'm still in shock! LOL. But I got a chance to wear this awesome linen skirt I bought a while back.


Yep I stepped on the scene trying to swag hard with my $4.00 shades, lol.
 
 

I love the split in the center of this linen pencil skirt. But I do hate how linen wrinkles so easily....
 
 


I am hanging on to these braids like a life line......it's hard to let them go!!!
 
 
 

I'm short but I still risked the midi length skirt and ankle-strap heels. If you're vertically challenged, this look will work for you if you stick with straight lines (i.e. no puffy top paired with slim, midi skirt).

Outfit: Polk Dot Chiffon Dress

Greetings Fashionistas,

It's Friday good people! I hope you all are gearing up for some weekend shenanigans. Unfortunately (or fortunately I guess) I will be working. However, the nightlife calls me to the scene tonight so I will enjoy myself, then cry silent tears as I get prepared for work, lol. Let me stop....

Went out with my fam for dinner and of course I was team overdressed. Whoop, whoop!


I have a serious love-hate relationship with this dress. One minute, I'm able to fit into it......a few hours later (metaphorically speaking of course), I can't zip the darn thing up to save my life!!!! I know my weight fluctuates a lot, but geesh louise!!!
 
 


I love pairing candy apple red with black and white. This classic color combo never gets old to me! And it just looks so great. I always get compliments and while I know that 'out of the box' is cool and creative, the classics will always remain show stoppers.
 
 
 


I especially love the ruffles on this dress, especially around the halter neckline.....tres chic!
 
 
 

I love an open back garment!!!

Outfit: Marvel Fan

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

This past weekend my mom and I were out of town visiting my fabulous sister. It was a short trip but we managed to pack shopping, dining, cooking, movies, and other shenanigans in just over 30 hours....no lie!



I wore this look to go shopping and I switched the heels to flats when we hit up the movie theater.
 
 

Yes.....I brought the shortest shorts I could find to wear, lol. My thighs were giving me the side eye literally all day!
 
 
 


I'm a serious Marvel Comics fan....like, if I could, I would try to attend Comic Con....so any Marvel reference I am immediately drawn to. I paired this tank with denim shorts and wrapped a plaid button down around my waist. I added the nerd glasses and high heels for my own personal style spin.
