She never cooperates when I try to get her to pose, we need more practice!

* Dress – c/o eShakti.com * Belt- Thrifted * Pumps – Call it Spring * Earrings – Bijuju.com *

Well her name really isn’t beauty but I felt very beautiful wearing this dress from eShakti.com.  When I was first contacted by them to do a review I decided to try something I wouldn’t normally wear.  I pretty much stay away from patterns and lots of colors, but I took a leap of faith with this one and I am so glad I did.  This dress is beautiful, the fit is perfect and it has pockets!

In its original state this dress would not have been an option for me.  On the eShakti website this dress is shown as tunic length which means it would be a shirt on me, lol.  I feel most comfortable wearing dresses that are knee length or a little longer.  Those lengths work well with my height and frame.  Everything seems to shorten when you have junk in the trunk!  I choose not to go at the entire process of taking all my measurements, which is outlined here.  I ordered one size down from what I normally wear; I put in my bra size, gave my height measurements and selected a longer length.

So would you guys buy a customized dress from a retailer?

    Awesome. The dress is absolutely stunning. Where did you wear it to?

  2. I would totally by a customized dress. The trick is to be well aware of your body type and how clothing looks on your body. This way you know when to adjust dress sizes. I am about to check out the eShakti website to see what they got! You look wonderful as always. Have a great weekend!

  4. This dress is absolutely gorgeous!  I have worked on eShakti before and they just contacted me to do more work with them and I am so glad!  They are a gem to work with and their pieces are beautiful and fit so well.  I even ordered my mother's dress for the wedding with them!  You look so stunning in this dress!  And the puppy is so cute!

    That friggin dress is gorgeous on you! Shows off every flattering thing about your body… everything LOL. Great post!

  15. I am surprised to read that you shy away from color and prints.  This dress looks fabulous and it's clear to me that you are wearing the dress and not the other way around.  Now that you know that you can rock prints, go for the color next.

  22.  My items finally arrived today after ordering them on march 30th they came april 24th. The guarantee on their website about shipping time is bullshit.

    So my order finally comes im in canada and I had to pay the UPS guy 160$ in brokerage and custom fees.

    When my items came I received 2 of the same dresses and one of my dresses was missing.

    I ended up returning 5 dresses and keeping 3 and it costs me 21$ to mail the dresses back to WA.

    I will never order from this company again.
    The dresses fit well because I custom ordered it but they weren’t amazing fabrics or dresses.

    I am very disapointed in this company.

    however the reviewere looks beautiful
