FIVE STYLE SECRETS (freebie)

Awhile ago, I was contacted by eShakti to do a review for one of their items.  It took me forever to pick ONE item because they have so many great choices.  In the end, it was between two dresses and I went for the little black dress!

dress: c/o eShakti // brooch: thrifted {similar} // necklace: thrifted {vintage} // belt: WHBM {similar} // opal ring: grandma {similar} // pearl bracelet: Premier {similar} // bag: vintage Celine // heels: Valentino // sunnies: Karen Walker

PROS:

  • I have to say that it is so well made!  The dress is fully lined, and and the seams are nicely finished.
  • I like the simplicity of the shape and scalloped hem.
  • Additionally, I had it customized by changing the sleeves to a bracelet length.  You can change any item to your liking for an additional $7.50.  

CONS:

  • Because it is felted wool, the dress attracts a lot of lint.  You can see in some of the pics. 
  • Even though I submitted custom measurements, it arrived a little big.  It may be because the dress is a slip on so they had to account for my wide shoulders.  The pics show extra fabric gathered around the belt line and I showed you a pic without the belt.
Would I order from eShakti again?  Definitely!  It was nice to custom order my dress!  The original dress is on sale for $31.98 here.  Right now, they have some gorgeous Spring dresses available!
Just a little about eShakti.  Shakti means power in Sanskrit.  eShakti therefore means the power of the Net.  They believe the internet empowers customers and helps companies be customer-centered.  And they were recently featured on Glamour.com.

{Disclaimer:  I received the dress complimentary of eShakti.  However, all opinions, styling, and pictures are my own!}

  8. That dress is REALLY nice. I love the scalloped details on the bottom and it looks great with or without the belt. The shoes set it off quite nicely.

    interesting idea! wish they ship to international locations but looks like it’s just US and Canada for now. i like that it’s not too expensive to have something custom made. The LBD looks really cute on you though I agree it does look a tiny bit big. Love the styling as usual – you have the shoes I’ve been stalking for ages!

  12. Sarah Faye says:

    Thanks for the intro to the brand…I wasn’t sure exactly what their brand/message was…but custom for those prices is pretty incredible.
    Beautiful dress (although I hear you on the collecting lint thing) and I ADORE those shoes…they are awesome.

    Such a nice LBD! Shame about it picking up fluff – it’s always the prettiest dresses that do that! Looks so nice with the belt :)

    Dress is classic but with a little twist to it (the scalloped hem).
    I like the touch of bling that the brooch adds to it!
