show time... eShakti

don't mind my red white skin, it was pretty chilly that day and I had to take my coat off to take these haha :) oh the joys of winter!

So a little while back eShakti contacted me about doing a review for one of their dresses. Me try on clothes? You don't have to pull my arm! I clicked on over to their page and was loving all their different designs, and then I noticed something that got me very excited.... very excited :)

CUSTOM ALTERNATIONS! No taking it somewhere, no waiting, the option is RIGHT there as you are looking at a dress. How many times have you looked at a dress and thought, "Oh if only it had sleeves!" or "If only it was longer!" Well folks, eShakti is your answer to that.

You can customize the length and sleeve style of their dresses... HOW exciting is that?! You can tailor it to suit YOU and your style. I was even thinking what a fun idea it would be to do bridesmaid dresses from the same pattern and change up the styles for each one. The possibilities are endless and it is such a great feature to have that I wish every store out there did it!

So I picked this wonderful black and white polka dot number and picked my sleeve length and skirt length and patiently awaited its arrival. Well it came and when I opened it I knew I love it before I even put it on. It was such a flattering silhouette on me and I loved the design of it. Putting it on just confirmed my expectations of their site.

I honestly can say I will be repurchasing from eShakti again! Anywho, I suggest you take a look at their amazing options, and see what alterations you could do to make your piece literally custom perfect for you!

And so glad I just saw this, they just contacted me as well and I might get this same dress! It is adorable! can you tell me how the sizing for this dress was? I think last time I got something from there I got it true to size but it was big on me but that was awhile ago!

    1. Hey Emily! These are actually Nine West! I am pretty sure they don't have them anymore.I got them early last year and even that was a struggle because they were out everywhere but I hunted like crazy for them. If you want to search for them I would look up velvet Mary Jane Nine West heels and see what you can find good luck!! And can't wait to see you soon for Tearsas shower!!!
