As soon as I was contacted, I started looking at the website. They have so many fabulous choices in all sorts of shapes, colors, and styles. Many of their dresses have a ladylike, vintage vibe and many of them reminded me of my sister, whose style has been referred to as "sexy secretary" (check her style out here).
I knew I wanted a skirt and, after seeing Style Journey's eshakti review, I was looking for something without a zipper. My first instinct was this skirt, entitled "Brick in the Wall" skirt because:
- the pattern and color is so unique and unlike anything I already have in my wardrobe
- the vintage-apron-style really appealed to me
- couldn't help but love the Pink Floyd reference in the name
The really cool part about ordering items from eShakti is that you have the option to order a regular size OR opt for custom-sizing. I decided to go with a custom size because of my super-petite frame. When I tried the skirt on, if fit almost perfectly. Unfortunately, it didn't quite fit on my waist. Now, this could be because I took these pictures early in the morning, before I had eaten anything, when I (and everyone for that matter) am my thinnest. Perhaps if I wore a thicker top or sweater it would fit better. I could also try a belt, though I hate to cover-up the cute buttons.
For this photo-shoot, I just pinned it in the back (as you can see in the picture below):
All around, I was very pleased with my eShakti skirt. I plan to try it with a neutral top, my Dex boots, and possibly even a belt in the future. I would definitely recommend eShakti to anyone with an unusual size (because of their custom sizing option) as well as to anyone looking for the perfect dress for a special occasion - they would even make great (and affordable) bridesmaids dresses for a casual wedding!
Do any of you have any experience with eShakti?
I'd love to hear your opinions/thoughts/reviews!!!
