In case you haven't heard, eShakti is an online shopping experience where you as the shopper get to customize the fit, cut, and style options. eShakti offers many different styles in blouses, skirts, and dresses from mod to vintage, which made it all the more difficult for me to choose! There were just too many awesome choices!
After browsing around for a bit, I finally decided on a blue dress with white piping, buttons, and a front tie. I instantly knew it would pair beautifully with my mustard yellow chevron scarf. Before ordering, I was presented with the option to customize the fit - and I'm not just talking about a few alterations here and there. I was actually able to input everything from shoulder width to hip size, and sleeve length to dress length! As you can see in the photos above, I went for a modest length that hits just above the knee, as I feel it completes that vintage look I wanted. I also opted to nix the sleeves since spring was just around the corner.
Once I submitted my order, I was contacted with the estimated delivery date which included the time projected for the customizations. Even still, my shipment came much faster than expected - all in all, it took about ten days to ship!
Of course, I was super excited to open the package and wear my dress for the first time! I noticed that it was of decent construction and quality. I am not a seamstress so I can't comment much, but I also felt that the customizations were completed in a professional manner.
I loved the comfortable fit and how easy it was to zip up! The only thing I would have changed would be the measurements that go over the shoulder and to the waist. I think I may have measured this incorrectly because there is extra material that can be taken up at the shoulder. You can kind of see what I mean in the top right photo where the material bunches up at my chest.
All in all, I loved the customizable experience eShakti offers and look forward to ordering again. It's really hard to find this style dress including custom tailored alterations at the prices eShakti offers. I have also noticed that they run specials fairly often. For example, right now they are offering a "buy one, get one 40% sale" - definitely worth checking into! I highly recommend them for the look, price, and quality!
