Customizable Dresses from eShakti

I love online shopping, it’s a little addiction of mine. Sometimes there is nothing better than the anticipation of a new order arriving on your doorstep any day.

The problem with online shopping is an obvious one, not being able to try it on. I’ve received many items of clothing in the mail that simply looked atrocious on or didn’t fit my body type. A size 6 at one store is the equivalent of a size 10 at another store. Confusing and difficult.

In steps eShakti to the rescue.

 A little while ago eShakti offered me a dress of my choice in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

eShakti is an online dress shop that offers fully customizable dresses and tops for all women sizes 0 – 36. Yep, you read that right, they completely customize your order taking your height, bust, waist measurements as well as asking what type of straps, sleeves, or length of dress you’d prefer. 

And it’s not crazy expensive! Yep, you can order a customized dress at an affordable price (they also offer a lot of great deals each week like BOGO right now!). 

I picked out this lovely green dress with pretty white embroidered detail. I did not have any green dresses in my wardrobe and I loved the bright color. 

After inserting my measurements and placing my order the dress arrived within 9 days.

It fits me perfectly in the chest, waist, and hip area. As someone with a small chest and with hips that are larger than my waist, dress shopping can sometimes prove to a be a little difficult.

Dresses that fit in my hips are often way too big in the chest area, leaving a gap where my supposedly larger breasts are supposed to be. If I get it to fit my waist and chest the hip area is way too tights or sometimes won’t even zip up. You get the picture.

That wasn’t the case here. Since eShatki made this dress to my measurement it fit wonderfully.

The one thing I would change is the length. And this is my bad. I did not know that I could request that the dress be made a shorter length. (Currently the dress is a past my knees in a matronly tea length).

They really will make the dress to order! So speak up! Want cap sleeves? Full short sleeves? A maxi length? A longer torso? You got it!

Check out the variety of their dresses, many of them vintage themed with classic cuts. Stop making guesses with cut and style and get a dress that is made for you!

Shop eShatki and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Sweet Treat For Yourself: beso handbags

beso handbags roxy wristlet Raise your hand if you’re MORE than ready for Spring!

One of the worse things about winter is the fact that style pretty much goes out the window (or hidden under layers upon layers). My hair and skin are dry and my clothes feel boring and over worn. I’m desperate for some new style and some new feminine touches. Anything besides snow boots and puffer coats!

That’s why I was so happy when I stumbled upon the shop beso handbags. These adorable handmade handbags add a much-needed pop of color to your winter wardrobe (and can be used throughout the spring and summer too).

Johanna, the owner of beso handbags, combines modern style with vintage inspired fabric to create one of a kind bags. They come in various shapes and styles and an array of fabric designs that is sure to fit many personal styles.

I fell in love with this Roxy wristlet in coral and white chevron print with aqua ruffle detail. I think it’s the perfect piece to make my outfit pop in the Winter but it will also transition perfectly into Spring and Summer. 

beso hand bags Johnanna’s craftsmanship is suburb and the fabric is high quality.The inside is lined with a soft yet rich feeling teal faux suede. I don’t use a lot of wristlets because I worry that they won’t fit anything. But this size was ideal – I could fit my wallet, iPhone, lip stick, keys, and mini brush. The wrist strap is also detachable so it can used as a basic hand-held clutch as well.
