eShakti Styled Three Ways

I had never heard of eShakti until my girl Making Mrs. M did a review of them a few weeks back. The very next day, they reached out to me and asked if I would like to receive a custom made dress and write up a review on the blog. Ummm, why yes, yes I would!

They have hundreds of dresses to choose from. There is something for everyone's personal style and budget. If you see something you like, but would prefer a different hemline or sleeve length, you can customize it to fit what you're looking for. Speaking of customization, eShakti means business! If you're not a standard size 4, 6, 8 etc (and who is?!), you can enter your measurements, and they'll make the dress specifically for you. I'm not just talking about a bust/waist/hip measurement either, they want to know how broad your shoulders are, low long your arms are, the size of your wrist - I mean, I think they wanted as many measurements as my custom-made wedding gown!

I went with a 1940's inspired chambray dress, as I planned to transition it to something I could still wear in the fall and throughout our mild winters. Because this dress is so versitle, I decided to style if a few different ways so y'all could see how a piece like this can work.

Office Chic Chambray

This dress is conservative enough to wear to the office, as the scoop neckline isn't too low, and the hemline isn't too high. I paired it with a nude wedge (from BCBG) and a cardigan (J Crew) then added simple jewelry (Mark & Graham). Boom! Business casual appropriate.

 Date Night Chambray

Date Night Chambray from eShakti
Who doesn't love to look good on date night?! Whether you're headed to dinner and a movie or an art gallery, this is a good look! I paired the dress with a dressier pointed heel (BCBG), a gold and black clutch (Cynthia Rowly) and chunky jewels around my neck (J Crew).  Add a bright lip, and you're gonna be smokin' hot for your date.

As we get deeper into fall and start to head into winter, this dress is easily adaptable. For cooler weather (I can't really say "cold" because, errrr, it doesn't get too cold here) I tied a plaid flannel (J Crew) which really showed off the full skirt, threw on some brown suede boots (totally don't know where these are from, and I've worn the label out of the inside of the boot!). To keep the look girly, I added a few strands of pearls (J Crew). Tights would also be cute with this! But y'all. I was s-w-e-a-t-i-n-g.

I just have to tell you - this dress is SO comfortable! The soft chambray fabric combined with the perfect fit of the customized dress makes me not want to take it off. Ever.

I will say that it did take about four weeks from ordering the dress to delivery, which I thought was a bit of a wait. But then again, they made this dress specific to all my bizarre measurements, and it fits like a dream! Just be sure to plan ahead with the ordering time if you want/need the dress for a special or specific event.
