What I wore: Dress from eShakti

Not too long ago I was contacted by eShakti to review a dress from their site. I was so excited because not only are their dresses so lovely but they wanted my measurements to make it fit just for me! Have you ever had anything custom made for you? (I think the last and only time was my prom dress.) I ended up picking this dress. I can't find it on their site anymore, but I picked something a little more simple. Something I could dress up or down.
I'll probably bring this dress when I visit home with me, I can totally see my mom liking this dress and that is rare that we like the same clothing. A great thing about the skirts and dresses from eShakti is that they all come with pockets. Pockets!! Yes, that is important!

Picking out your dress is pretty easy (well it was hard for me because they had so many great ones to pick from) but once you have your dress picked out you have the option of picking a standard sizing or a custom size for $7.50. Guys, treat yo self! Spend that extra money and pick the custom sizing! It's just a few simple measurements and boom! You're done. At the end there is also an option to remove the pockets if you're not a fan of them. The shipping was pretty fast too. My dress showed up within a week.
The only two things that bother me about this dress is the length and the top. I picked knee length and the dress seems to sit a little lower on me, so the dress ended up being below knee length. Pretty sure knee length means the dress sits at your knee, right? Anyways it's okay because it's an easy fix. I have a bunch of dresses that are supposed to be knee length but they either end up being below knee because it gets stretched out (or I wear it lower on my waist) or above knee because of my bum and gut.

Now for the top. I love the top, it's cute but it's a weird fit. The neck line seems loose to me. I don't know if that is how it's supposed to be with this style of dress or if I measured something wrong... but It's not a huge deal to the point were I would not wear it. Just seems a bit weird to me.
Overall I am very happy with my dress. Justin says it kind of looks like a sailor dress and I kind of see that. I just need a cute sailor hat. I wore it this time on its own because this is one of those dresses that looks great on its own. But I know in the future I will be wearing it with cardigans and sweaters. The dress is made of good quality material so I'll probably be wearing it in the winter time too.

  2. I thought it was very "Snow White", but now that you've said "sailor" I can totally see that too. Very cute, either way;) And I think the length looks great on you!
