eShakti review {& a giveaway for two!}

I was really excited when eShakti contacted me about doing a review for them.

You see, I had heard of them before and seen some of their stuff on other blogs. If you don't know about eShakti, you really should. Their tagline is perfect: "We design. You customize." And that's exactly what you get to do at eShakti. You can change the collar, the sleeves, or the hem on any item.

Pleated cowl neck knit dress

I was lucky enough to be offered an item of my choice to customize however I wanted. I chose the Pleated Cowl Neck dress in red, and opted to change the sleeves from 3/4 length to elbow length.

This dress also has a hi-lo hem, which I wasn't sure about at first but my sister talked me into it. ("Hi-lo hems are big right now!" and I quote. Thanks, sister!) I wore my dress with brown wedges for this photo, but it also looks good with brown knee-length dress boots.

At eShakti, they will give you their measurements for each size, but if you don't fit that mold, they make it easy to change by customizing the measurements as well. You just enter your actual measurements, and the dress is made to fit YOU, for just a nominal fee. My measurements are pretty proportional so I didn't need to do that, but I could see it would be very simple to do.

The size I ordered is just a little bit big, but the dress is 100% cotton, so I'm not worried. I suspect it will shrink a tad and then be perfect.

Another great thing about eShakti was the time it took to receive my dress. From the time I ordered until it came was barely a week. I was pleasantly surprised, as they quote about 2 weeks when you make customizations.

And now:
