Flower Power-eShakti Customizable Dress *Review*

For some reason lately, I've been in a BIG dress mood when I go out shopping. Every time I see a dress I like, it draws me in and I finger the fabric, hold it up to myself and think, 'man, I really wish I could wear this.'

Then it hit me: Why can't I?! Just because I never go anywhere fancy doesn't mean I can't dress up for kicks and giggles, right?

Thanks to eShakti and their fabulous clothing selection (which included many, many adorable dresses), I was able to do two things: 1. get a very cute dress to review and 2. get all dressed up for the kicks and giggles of it and have myself a photo shoot!

About eShakti.com:

"eShakti began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces. As we grew, we were tasked with providing design and fit solutions to meet our customers' needs. Today, we are an international fashion design company making custom clothing. Offering both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36 is the heart of our business."

As mentioned above, eShakti.com has a multitude of offerings from the many different types of dresses throughout their site to their lovely tops, skirts, jackets and even bridesmaid dresses if that's what you're seeking, all of which are totally customizable!

I was lucky enough to be given free reign over their newest Spring collection and let me tell you, this was quite the hard decision to make with the 20-something pages of products you're given to choose from!

Once I had it narrowed down from several open tabs of potentials down to only a few things, the decision still wasn't made any easier. That being said I went with my gut and also listened to the tiny voice inside saying, 'pick the pretty dress;' The pretty dress being the Mod Floral Print Halter Dress

It was a little nerve wracking ordering because I have a hands-on preference when it comes to trying on clothing before I buy it, but I was very impressed by eShakti's ordering process; not only do they have an extensive and detailed sizing chart that's simple to use, their customizable options are just plain cool!

My dress had several different customizable options that made the whole ordering process feel very hands-on, which I truly appreciated.

When the little beauty arrived, I opened the package and was in complete awe! I probably sat there for a good 5 to 10 minutes just looking at the dress and feeling its material--It was so SOFT. Of course after the awe wore off I rushed in to try it on and fell in love with everything about it.

I had several different clothing pieces come in for review so I went ahead and asked my photography friend of A Woman and a Camera Photography to do a photo shoot for me, which you can see how those (amazing) pictures turned out below....

I wore the dress itself for a good majority of the day and I really couldn't have been any happier if I tried! The fit was perfect, the material flowed and moved with my crazy antics and I, the print is so cheerful and vibrant...Oh, and there were pockets!!

I'm such a sucker for pockets ^.^

Working with eShakti.com was a complete pleasure and I'm super excited I was given the opportunity-I actually have a wedding coming up and thanks to them, I know exactly what I'm going to wear!

I won one of these dresses and have to admit that I haven't had the time to get my measurements done. I'm kind of glad because I've just managed to get rid of all my baby weight so now would be a great time to treat myself with such a beautiful piece of clothing.

Thanks for the reminder.

Girl, you have found your calling! You are gorgeous! What lovely pictures. You should make it into a portfolio and become a model definitely! How tall are you anyway? The dress so becomes you! And pockets? Oh me too! I love pockets (only because I hate carrying purses all the time). What a fantastic Post. Still being a big girl I don't think there's anything in there for me, but I'm workin' on it! hehehe Thanks for sharing. I'll share with my daughters too!
